1 Difference receiving satellite / terrestrial reception reception quality – Dish TV Packages Dallas TX

The reception quality with a terrestrial antenna depends on the proximity of the transmitter and possible obstacles (hills, buildings …). With satellite reception, one is guaranteed to receive the programs. It also allows you to subscribe to operators offering packages of channels and services.

Good to know: The satellite dish is installed on the ground in the garden in the courtyard, on the balcony, rooftop or against a wall. fixing kits are available to ensure a solid and stable installation of the satellite dish so that the images are.

Material outside of the home
The parabola: its diameter ranges from 60 cm to more than 1.20 m. The larger it is, the more signals received by the reception head is large. For satellites Arabsat, Turksat Nilsat and a large parabola (> 1 m) is mandatory in France. A 60 cm diameter is sufficient for the other major satellites. The parables are available in different materials and in different colors. Colored or transparent resin and metal, the differences lie in the aesthetics and weatherability.

The reception quality of programs depends on certain technical characteristics of the parabola.

The noise factor: expresses the rate of degradation of the signal / noise created by the converter when receiving signals, or any other system (amplifier …). It reflects his sensibility. Less noise factor, the higher the converter is good.

Gain: in the field of satellite ratio expressed in decibels, characterized amplification of a signal given by an antenna, power, intensity, or voltage, with respect to the input value.

The input frequency: frequency used by the head (converter) to communicate with the satellite.

The reception head also called LNB (Low Noise Block) is to recover and amplify signals.
Universal to a single output on a single demodulator.
Integral with two heads fixed offset of 6 ° and a single output, it allows the reception of the same two different satellites TV programs provided they are not pushed by more than 6 °.
Twin with 2 independent outputs for 2 receivers and therefore 2 separate devices.
Quatwin with 4 independent outputs for 4 receivers 4 and therefore particular devices. It is advisable to call in this case a professional installer advisor.

The antennas miniaturized satellites are growing and no longer have the classic appearance of a parabola. Flat, they are more discreet for the same reception quality.

Coaxial cable: it transports the head signals to the receiving unit. Connects with cards “F” screw. Its quality affects the quality of the images especially in cases of great length. Avoid adding maximum extension. For the quality of the cable, read the information printed on it. (The 14VATCA is the best.)

The demodulator (or decoder): it powers the LNB and receives signals, translates them and sends them to the TV. It can receive the free channels or pay-in digital quality.

The SCART cable: used to connect the receiver to the TV. Prioritize leads with pin for an optimal.

The coupler: This enclosure allows connection arrivals terrestrial and satellite dishes on the same coaxial cable.

The dispatcher: sort of power strip to distribute the same image on multiple TV.

The transmitter wireless image: send an image of a TV on another TV in the house.

3 To receive different satellite programs
A fixed dish is permanently aligned to the selected satellite. A satellite change then request a new setting. To receive the same TV programs different satellites, several solutions are possible.

Bring a dish with monoblock LNB, Twin or Qatwin.

Bring multiple antennas that link to different satellites (four).

The use of a motor antenna for satellite happens to be the simplest solution and most effective to receive programs from different satellites on the same dish. Moreover, it does not limit the number of viewable satellites. Thus, motorized satellite reception systems can move easily from one satellite to another thanks to the “rotor” on the remote.

For the orientation of the satellite antenna, use a sound or a pointer pointing compass to save time.
