Satellite TV is a special set of equipment, through which the reception of television programs broadcasting via satellite communication. The scheme of satellite television is the very antenna, popularly called a "dish", a receiver( tuner), and a converter. To receive all teletranslation of the coverage area of the satellites in which we are located, the antenna must be located in the direction to the south. At the moment, they use mostly offset plates. How to connect the dish will be described below.
Antenna The satellite dish is assembled at home. In the street you will only need to attach it to a vertical surface and adjust the reception slightly.
When installing the antenna, make sure that there are no obstacles in the direction of the satellite. It is recommended to install the antenna as close as possible to the TV.It is forbidden to mount the antenna indoors, under a roof or behind a glass, sincethe signal from the satellite will not pass. If you use a cable with a double b
In order to connect the dish to the TV, you must prepare the cable. Begin to peel it from the edge to a length of approximately 15 mm of the insulating layer, while trying to keep the shielded braid. Then screw the F-connector all the way to the end of the cable, cut the center conductor, taking into account the protrusion no more than two mm. Do the same with the other end of the cable. After that, screw the ends of the cable one to the special connector of the receiver, and the other to the converter on the "plate".
If you have several "heads", then the question arises, how to connect two plates to the tuner. To do this, you will need additional wires of about one meter, which will connect the DiSEqC switch and converters.
Setting up the antenna
The so-called "alignment" of the antenna should be carried out, knowing the frequencies, the speed of the flow and the polarization of the satellite you specifically select. You can find out more about frequencies at the lyngsat website. Remember that not all frequencies have equal strength.
The signal consists of indicators such as quality and strength. We need to focus on quality. To achieve this, place the antenna strictly vertically and turn as slowly as possible to the sides. During the "fire" you do not have to close the "head" with your hands, otherwise the signal will not wait.
If the signal does not appear, then slightly tilt the antenna and keep turning it to the sides. In this way, achieve the maximum signal value. Then activate the scan to find out if you have tuned in to the desired satellite. Make sure that the channel is not "braked" and not "poured" cubes. If the setting is correct, then the desired channel list is displayed. Now gently tighten the nuts, so as not to lose the signal.
If you have several converters, say two, then when setting the signal, change the antenna number through the receiver's menu. After setting up both converters, connect a DiSEqC switch to them. Using the tuner menu, go to "Antenna Installation" and select the converter setting. Make sure that the connection is the same as in the menu of each of the two satellites. Finally, select the mode in the main menu "Automatic setting" and scan both plates.
Connection of "Tricolor TV"
In Russia the most popular satellite TV is "Tricolor TV".The installation of this antenna is no different from the method described above, so hereafter it will be told how to connect the Tricolor TV dish to your TV.There are two ways to do this.
The first way is to connect the satellite antenna to the frequency of the RF through the antenna cable, using the RF out connector on the receiver and the antenna jack on the TV.We connect the power cable from the receiver and its power toggle switch. We are waiting for the word "VOOT" to appear, and then the channel number. If the clock shows on the display, the receiver is in the standby mode, so turn it on. Next, activate the channel search mode on your TV and look for a channel with the words "No Signal".If such a channel is found, then you have connected the tuner as it should.
The second method is performed on the frequency of LF through the cable, which has connectors like "Scart" or "tulips".This cable connects the TV to the receiver. We connect the tuner to the network and turn on the power toggle switch. The message "ВООТ" and the channel number appears, and on the receiver with the standby mode the clock. After that press "POWER" on the tuner console, and on the TV we go to the video mode( press the "A / V" button).If the connection is made correctly, the message "No signal" appears.
To configure the antenna, press the "i" button on the remote from the tuner, two scales will appear - "Signal quality" and "Signal strength".Empty scales mean a complete absence of a signal. The ratio of these two scales is adjusted to receive the signal. Now you know how to connect a satellite dish and what you can expect.
