This is the Channel Scan page where you can scan it by Channel or by Frequency. The options are controlled by the remote control. You can also check the signal intensity and signal quality on this page as well.

Once you are done, you can access the TV channels List to check the available channels available.

On the remote control there are options for you to change the subtitle of the programme (If available). TTX (for Teletext – but discontinued), Audio allows you to switch on audio output format. Some of the movies has Dolby Digital, so you can switch it for better cinematic experience if you pair it up with a 5.1 system. The 4th button is the EPG – Electronic programme guide.


The set top box has a USB port. The USB port can be used for future firmware upgrade. Another use is to record the TV programmes. To record a programme, you can press on the EPG button to check the schedule and select the program to be recorded. The option is somewhat not very apparent and it is not that intuitive compared to Starhub hubstation HD.

Anyway, the recording is very clear and it is recorded as a TS file (transport stream). The file can be huge so get ready for a USB attached storage if you intend to record the programme for future viewing.

  1. MediaCorp will be turning off the TV signals in 2017. If you haven’t , it is time to switch to digital.

  2. If you own the vodoke playstaq, this device can also be used to receive dvb-t2 broadcasts

  4. our vessel came with Darco Satellite Tv reciever HD6300. it is not showing. is it because of my location Nigeria?
    what do i do.thanks

  5. Currently I rely on outdoor antenna with booster to my existing digital TV (not T2 ready). Can I just install HDT2-7300 and connect to the TV via HDMI port? Is this the best alternative?

  6. Hi, do you think the antenna amplifier provided can pick up the Malaysian digital channels? I check Wikipedia and the launch date for the Malaysian digital tv is Apr 2015.
    Anyone from JB can pick up SG digital channels?

  7. There are some other models available in Singapore. You can check them out on page 3 of the review (Revised).

  8. Hi! I have a miotv, but I record shows on the local channels using a DVD recorder. Am I able to use a DVB-T2 receive STB at the same time? So that I can record in HD and it does not affect the miotv or whatsoever.

    1. mio tv and dvb-t2 tuners are two different tuners. They shouldn’t affect each other.

      The Draco box already comes with a USB port which you can insert a USB stick and record the tv shows.

      1. Hey! Thanks for your reply! 🙂 So, can I still connect to my DVD-R to record tv shows after getting HD channels from the receiver?

        1. Why would you want to do that? The only available ports are RCA from the back panel , you will be recording in non HD resolution.

          Unless your DVD recorder can accept HDMI in and record in Huigh Definition that is a different story.

          1. So that I can burn into discs directly? I only see a HDMI AV out at the back of my DVD-R. Sorry, am really bad at this.

          2. well you can but it won’t be in HD .

            The best is to record it to the USB stick and use a computer to burn the contents into a DVD for archival purposes. Note the files are rather big.

  9. This box can use in johor,malaysia?can see mediacorp all channel?

    1. Yes it is reported that it works in coastal areas of JB.

  10. Overall its a good device and pretty good review of it. Fantastic HD receiving potential this satellite receiver has. It is packed with all the necessary features and applications.

  11. Hi, Just got one but having trouble getting the Free to air channels and any slight adjustment to the setup will render signal being lost totally. Any suggestion/recommendation on getting better reception and antenna placement?

    1. Did you install the amplifier ? Try to place the circular Draco antenna near the window.

  12. Hi! Just to check, does this set-top box supports dual sound?
