August 2003

Q.1 : If I put the dish on an outside wall, will the roof overhang cause a problem? (Shoaib, Karachi)

Ans: The signal comes in about 20 degrees above the dish. Therefore, a large overhang could block the signal if the dish is too high and too close. If you have a large overhang have some one hold the dish in place and take a good look at the side view to be sure you have clearance.

Q.2 : Can I add a new Dish pro receiver to a dish 500 that does not have a Dp LNB? (Naeem, Sindh)

Ans: Yes, all dish pro receivers are backward compatible, meaning that they will work in an installation with the original LNBF's and switches. The software in the dish pro receivers will determine which components you have and function which components you have and function accordingly.

Q.3 : We have TV's in different rooms and we want to watch satellite channels in all the rooms. Can we connect the LNB to our existing cable box outside? (Mujtaba, Peshawar)

Ans: No, The receiver sends information to the LNB that would not get post the cable splitter. Therefore, the RG-6 cable from the LNB, or the Dp34 switch at the dish must go directly to the satellite receivers. The only expectation would be diplexers to combine the LNB signal with a regular TV antenna.

Q.4 : I am the regular reader of your magazine. It helps us a lot about the satellites. Kindly tell me how do I connect the TV's to the receiver to watch different kinds of programmes? (Javeed, Mianwali)

Ans: You should put the receiver on or near the most important TV set. With a newer TV, you should connect the S-video, or the video and left and right audio RCA output jacks on the back of the satellite receiver to the matching inputs on the TV. For older TV's an “out to TV” cable type connector on the satellite receivers which you can switch to either channel 3 or any other channel.

Q.5 : have hooked up the dish antenna right, but I can't find the satellites. What should I do? (Zulfiqar, Multan)

Ans: Remember that the satellites are 22,300 miles away. You have to set the East/West angle and the elevation angle. There is also a skew angle on the back of the dish 500, but it is much easier if you align the dish for the primary satellite first, set the skew angel. Fighten the dish on the mount, then loose it just enough so it will turn. However, when you do this, the front of the dish drops a little, so reach underneath the front and lift; it up enough to hold the elevation. Be careful not to block the signal with your hand. Turn the volume way upon your TV and slowly turn the dish a little at a time and stop for about 3 seconds. Continue until you hear the beeping noise speed up, turn the dish a tiny bit and wait, it takes time for the signal to get back from the satellites. When the beeping turns into a solid tone, you have found the satellite.

Q.6 : Kindly guide me about what the satellite receiver do? (Ahmed, Karachi)

Ans: The receiver receives the information from the dish and LNB and decomposes the digital channels. The output to your TV either, S-Vidio the raw audio video or the other channels. If your TV does not have the other connectors, Digital Dolby is also available for your home theater sound system on the better dish network receivers.

Q.7 : Sir, I am a great fan of your magazine, Dish Channels. Can you give me the frequency of Future TV and which satellite is transmitting it and also tell me, what is the size of the dish required to receive this channel? (Haroon, Abbot Abad)

Q.8 : I have a hotbird system receiving 120 channels with it. I have a package called Nova receiving 16 channels, My problem is that I get half the channels and not all the channels all the time. At night I got all the channels but in the morning half of the channels disappear. What should I do to solve this problem? (Faheem, Islamabad)

Ans: The Hotbird satellite is a drifting satellite. Nova package is transmitting at 12169 H at Ku band. You should use a bigger dish to tackle with this problem

Q.16 : Can I use one cable to bring in the signal from my local antenna and the LNB at the dish? (Salman, Abbotabad)

Ans: Yes, for each receiver, you will need two highly quality diplexers to combine the local TV antenna with the signal from the LNB. A diplexer combines the cable from a TV antenna with the satellite signal. It looks like a two way splitter, with one output cable connector on one side and two input cables on the other side. For multiple satellite receivers, you can use a splitter from the TV antenna to supply the signal to more diplexers. Diplexers can not be used to split the signal from the LNB to add more receivers.
