I have tested this service in my room and getting good signals. It was about 85%, you can see in pictures. Solid4you Company already launched DVB-T2 set-top box and it is working fine, Picture quality is very good, nice recording. But main problem is that T2 Antenna is not included with set-top box. So without DVB-T2 antenna it is useless or not working. So please make sure that you have a T/T2 antenna before using this set-top box.

I have tested these channels by using DVB-T2 USB TV Stick which is very small item but costly than Solid Set-top Box.
