TV plus can receive encrypted digital TV channels like DZMM in addition to other non-encrypted channels like ABS-CBN channel 2 and GMA channel 7. Otherwise, any ISDB-T receiver will do.

it can? ok i'll tell him. thanks!

I got tired of waiting for PLDT Fiber to be available for the main office of our business so I went with Globe plan 1899 20mbps unlimited data when I found out about it. They installed within a few days of my application.

Super satisfied with the service. We're actually getting 30Mbps with absolutely no torrent throttling and peak time slowdowns unlike the PLDT Fibr 1899 20mbps (VDSL2) at our condo unit.

I think so but it doesn't bother me because I don't upload much. hehe

I tested Globe's pings for multiplayer gaming and they are consistently lower for me though. PLDT's pings are so high that I just gave up playing multiplayer games.

No. We're just using the PLDT supplied VDSL2 modem router.

Last time I tried to get the admin password for the router to configure bridge mode, DNS as well as port forwarding, PLDT's CS and technicians were very unhelpful.

Last time I tried to get the admin password for the router to configure bridge mode, DNS as well as port forwarding, PLDT's CS and technicians were very unhelpful.

what i did when i called pldt was i "directly" mentioned to them that i wanted to set my router to bridge mode.  i did not even bother to ask them since im guessing theyre going to reject it.  when i said "i want to set my router to bridge mode", the csr immediately arranged it.  im on pure fiber and not on vdsl btw.  so im not sure if its different on your end.  and since im on bridge mode, i needed to connect a separate router to have a firewall between my devices and the internet. 


btt:  lagi nalang kaya talaga magloloko ang drivers pag nag major update si windows 10?  badtrip talaga!  it seems i need to reinstall some hardware drivers every time windows has a major update done.  it seems to mess things up more than fix things

i checked using mobile data too.  it seems 1.1.1.1 is really faster.  i thought that google dns would still be the best but apparently there is a better dns now

Lazada is the online CDR-King. I have bought a few electronic stuff from Lazada. On close inspection, some have small defects (errors in manufacturing). Not enough to keep them from working but still more than cosmetic defect.

BTW, I just bought a bunch of 12V AC to DC adapters which I will replace ones that have suddenly died in service. One for the Sky cable box and another for the DSL modem.

I actually trust WD, my very first drive was a 20Gb WD drive around 1998, and now I got bunch of 2TB and 3TB WD green drives(2x2TB + 4x3TB), running for about 5years now (these are the drives that were said to be the worst drives WD ever put out)

but in general sense, I actually don't trust any storage media, since all of my data are *always*, stored in two drives. (one is always offline, stored in a drawer, plugged in every week or so for rsync)
