We own a building with 72 apartments.
Is it possible to distribute the satellite IF signal from 8 different dishes (each dish pointing to a separate satellite)?
We want the final IF signal to be a composition of all the signals from each LNB (and we want to distribute the signal using a single cable).
Is this possible?
The number of channels that can be distributed within the IF band by a single coaxial cable is limited.
The available bandwidth is from approx. 950 to 2200 MHz.
This means that a maximum of 31 transponders can be sent using a single coaxial cable.
You should select these transponders and then use IF to IF processors to accommodate them into the "cable".
How will the system work?
These units can select any satellite transponder and carry out a frequency conversion in order to put all of them in adjacent configurations from 950 to 2150 MHz.
The transponders can be either analogue or digital. please see the technical information about ref. 7231 on our website.
I have an audio/video transmitter ref. 7307.
Following the instructions on the leaflet, the system sends the video and audio but it does not send the remote control commands. Why?
What is a collinear antenna? What advantages does it have?
A collinear antenna is basically two antennas joined together.
Externally, it looks like a single antenna but in fact, it is two antennas on the same piece of equipment.
Collinear antennas have a higher gain than a simple antenna with the same size.
I have the Receiver 7255: I blocked some channels but I have now forgotten the password.
On page 63 of the English section of the User Manual, it says that when you forget the password you can select the factory default option.
When I tried the factory default option it still prompted me for a password.
I have tried all the available passwords from 0001 to 9999, unfortunately nothing works.
I think it is something to do with the software.
On page 41 of your Manual, as you can read below, there is a special code (1250) in case you forget your password.
Another option is to set the receiver again to the factory defaults, but you will lose your personal settings.
When orientating a dish towards a satellite, I used a Satfinder ref. 7301.
Even when the position of the satellite dish allows a maximum signal reading, some of the channels that I receive still transmit noise (sparklies).
First make sure that the size of your dish is adequate for the area where you are living.
You must also take into account that the dish adjustment does not only consist in setting up the elevation and azimuth parameters.
A very important parameter is the LNB skew.
This skew will help to discriminate between the polarities transmitted by the satellite.
In order to adjust the skew:
I need a cable to connect the Avant to the PC with a 9 pin D-Sub connector.
Can I use the cable used for the CDC (Control Module) as it has a 9 pin D-Sub?
You cannot use the same cable for both applications :
In any case, the Avant cable has a bi-directional adapter for the data that is being transmitted to the PC either for writing or reading.
However, please note that:
How to make a mechanical optical fibre splice
Using a multitester, the Vdc output voltage of the PSU, ref. 9386, seems to be 24V instead of 18V. Can this voltage harm the LNB?
The power supply unit, ref. 9386 does indeed generate 24V, but when it has been loaded, it generates 18V.
To verify this, you can insert a splitter with a DC bypass in its outputs between the PSU and the LNB (such as ref. 7304).
Now measure the voltage in its free output with a tester.
How can I detect an EEPROM failure in a SAT 100 or STAR unit?
To be able to detect if a sound failure has been produced by the EEPROM memory (ic8 - pcx8582), use the portable programming unit and follow these steps:
