« on: Jun 28, 2020 at 01:13 PM »
Anyone tried this yet?

Curiois on the ff:
What's the output resolution? Is gma's signal HD?
It says on the box that it has an indoor antenna, how effective could that be?

Timing is very convenient for this box. Baka hindi na rin magamit ang TV Plus in the near future eh.

not sure if you have tried just connecting an antenna to your TV... the two TV's that I have (both LG's) are compatible with our DBV-T digital signal ... if your TV already support such, and your purpose is only to get free to air channels, there's not much advantage getting a tv box ... I actually purchased a TV Plus and another tv box (Easy TV i think) and gave both to my brothers when I tested that direct connection of antenna to the tv works - less complexity as you only need one remote control, and it's actually clearer

^bro are you getting a 16:9 feed for GMA channels on your TV? I seem to be getting just 4:3 aspect only.

ordered mine for our old LCD TV, hindi pa din dumadating. pero from what I saw in the ads, RCA connection lang ito just like first version ng TVPlus.

afaik, ISDB-T ang Phils. and I think most new TVs nowadays have ISDB-T tuner na.

this is true. most don't even advertise it na sa specs nila. just check the TV settings, if it shows digital, it can receive the signal. just get a decent digital antenna.

This is what i use: https://shopee.ph/product/45528824/1195658957

im only interested lang din naman with 2 channels, CNN at yung GMA. minsan GMA News TV 11.
