MyGica T230 and T230C issues in Colombia

Hello, I hope this is the correct section of the website for this topic.

I live in Colombia and I bought the MyGica T230C usb tuner since it supports DVB-T2 which is the TV standard adopted by our country.

The problem with this tuner is with some channels not being recognized or detected at the scanning process done on the computer or Android device. There are 21 channels available at my location but the T230C catches only 16, I heard the T230 also has similar issues , however, I don't have signal reception issues because the same external antenna I use for my TV (which catches all the channels) is the same connected to the usb tuner. Usually we have to select Taiwan as the country in the app settings since they use the same technical specifications as our country for the signal transmission.

Many people had returned their purchase because of this inconvenience so I hope MyGica take a look into this in order to see if this is a firmware issue that should be addressed because it happens under Windows 10 and Android.

Please let me know if you need any logs or something that could help identify this problem.

Re: T230C scanning issue

First make sure to use T230C-DE driver (http://update.mygica.com/download/Driver/T230C-DE_Driver.zip) instead of T230C one. Then use MPC-HC (https://mpc-hc.org/) - Open Device - Scan to scan for DVB-T2 channels. This way I was able to find all digital channels in Albania. 

MPC-HC configuration

Options - Playback - Capture

Default Device: Digital

Network Provider: Microsoft Network Provider

Thank you for your suggestion!, I'm gonna try it as soon as I can and I'll reply with my experience, but what about Android? there is no way to install a driver there.

Hello, I wasn't able to reply to you about my experience until today and unfortunately this doesn't work, I still can't get all the channels, I honestly don't know if it's the device or if they changed something here about the signal transmission inside my country, what's even more strange is, the channels I can't get on my computer appear on my Android TV device, but other channels that appear on Android doesn't appear on my computer; speaking of Android, Geniatech created a FTA tuner loader app for Android TV where we can use this device to scan and watch Live TV using the Live Channels application, heres's the link in case you are interested:

I've been doing research about the frequencies that work with DVB-T2 in my country and I found out this is definitely a problem with the USB tuner, I made tests with different apps on windows like VLC or Total TV Player and they get some channels working while on Android TV with the FTA Tuner Loader I got some channels working that didn't work on Windows, here is a summary:

On  Windows:

Channel          Frequency          Number of  sub-channels           Sub-channels working on Windows      Sub-channels working on Android TV 

14                     473000 Khz                           5                                                                               0                                                                                 1
15                     479000 Khz                           6                                                                               1                                                                                 6
16                     485000 Khz                           6                                                                               6                                                                                 0
17                     491000 Khz                           3                                                                               3                      
                                                                   0

I hope someone at MyGica take look at this and do something to fix this inconvenience with this the T230 and T230C tuners.
