Question about Element Electronics Televison & Video
Satellite TV signals have saturated almost every corner of the world as more countries place their own TV satellites in orbit or lease them from private companies. Satellite TV includes any TV that receives broadcasting signals collected by a satellite dish from an orbiting satellite. Dish Network and DirecTV are two of the most popular
Step 1Decide where you want your dish to be. The most common location is where there is an unobstructed view of the southern skies. Anchor and ground the base of your satellite dish.
Step 2Connect the LNB to the center of the dish according to the instructions in your kit and then attach the dish to the base. Make sure the LNB is firmly seated into the dish. Do not tighten down the dish to the base until you have correctly pointed the dish at the satellite you want to receive. You can do this by connecting the RG-6 cable to the LNB and the satellite receiver box and another piece of the cable to the input connection on the rear of dish. Follow the instructions in your setup kit to get the strongest satellite signal. Once you have the best picture and sound you can get, tighten down the dish screws so the dish cannot move out of position.
Step 3Run and connect the wires from the dish to the splitter. Try to find an easy-to-reach place for your splitter. The splitter divides the satellite signal into the number of televisions you have. Each television must have a direct feed from the splitter.
Step 4Measure how far it is from the splitter to each television set.. Then cut each section length of the cable plus 15 feet of slack cable for each TV. Doing this will allow you to easily move your television to a new location in the future. You can buy pre-cut pieces of cable that come with the ends already.
Step 5Run the cables to each television.. Drill your walls if necessary. If the cable runs along any baseboards inside your home, you can attach it with your staple gun or even nail it down with U-Nails and a small hammer if necessary.
Step 6Connect the cables from your splitter to the input of the satellite receivers on each television. Connect the receivers to the input of the televisions. Follow the instruction in your kit if necessary.
In order to get DISH Network, you will need a triple LNB multi-satellite dish, plus an HDTV-capable satellite receiver and HDTV.
If your home has older but typical RG-59 cable, you will need to run new RG-6 cabling to handle the high frequency of digital satellite signals.
Warning: If you plan to run your cabling underground from your satellite dish to your home, protect the cable from errant shovels and other yard tools by enclosing your cable in a PVC conduit pipe or use cable rated for direct burial. In either case, you will need to dig a trench that is at least 24 inches deep.
Digital satellite systems must have RG-6 cables - not RG-59 cables.
Be sure to ground the satellite base, the dish and the RG-6 cabling to protect your system.
Use power surge suppressors that are specifically designed to protect digital satellite systems. Look for surge suppressors for AC, RG-6 coax cable and phone protection.
