Assembling the kit
Independently to collect the bought complete set under force even absolutely not familiar with technics to the person. If you decide to install it yourself and set up the dish and receiver, we advise you to study the instruction and remember the names of the components of the satellite dish. Also it is necessary to understand, where exactly and how the receiver "Tricolor TV" is connected.
Prepare a television cable with plugs. First of all, place the converter in the holder.
Pay attention to the connector, it should be pointed downwards, so that rain drops do not flow into it.
The installation coupling must be securely attached to the working area of the converter. Before installing the antenna, we recommend that you check and tighten all the bolts again. In order to correctly adjust the head and find the exact direction to the satellite "Tricolor TV this will have to be done during the installation more than once.
Mounting the antenna
To obtain a high-quality image on the TV screen coming from the receiver's output, you need an accurate adjustment of the antenna to the satellite "Tricolor" TV and the absence of visible interference on a straight line, mentally conducted between them..
Before proceeding with installation, carefully read the documents of the equipment kit and find there the name of your kit: "Center" or "Siberia"..
The plate should look strictly to the south, and also fixed exclusively on the outer wall or mast. It can in no case be installed between high-rise buildings or trees covering the imaginary axis held between the dish and the companion.
If it was decided to install the receiver independently on the external wall of the house, then the bracket should be secured with reliable anchors. If this rule is not observed, a strong wind can tear off the mountings and the antenna can cause a lot of trouble. The mounting location must be selected from a simple calculation: as close as possible to the place where the receiver is installed.
Even when using a cable with a double braid and a thickened copper vein, this distance is limited to one hundred meters. In the event that such a close installation of the kit is not possible, we suggest that you purchase and configure an additional amplifier. The process of acquiring it is not complicated, it is usually available in any store selling television equipment.
After the purchase, the antenna is first assembled and installed on the already fixed bracket. We clean the television cable from the top layer of insulation from both ends to one and a half centimeters. In the direction from the end to the middle, carefully wrap the shielded braid and screw it onto the freed part of the F-connector. We leave the main copper core behind the connector for two millimeters, the rest bite off the pliers. Now you need to connect the receiver to the cable that goes to the antenna converter.
Connect the receiver
There are two ways to connect the Tricolor TV receiver yourself to the TV:
- high-frequency connection with an antenna cable;
- low-frequency connection of the receiver with a conventional cable with "bells" or a "scart" connector.
With RF connection: we plug the cable into the antenna socket of the TV and connect it to the RF Out output. Then we connect the receiver with a cord to an electrical outlet and turn on the power toggle switch. The screen should show "BOOT" and the channel number. Then we start the automatic channel search in the TV receiver and look for the channel with the inscription "No signal indicating to us that the receiver is connected correctly.
At low frequency connection: the connection of the receiver is made with a cable with "tulips" or "scart". We turn the receiver on and wait for the word "BOOT" to appear on the screen, and then the digits of the channel number. On the remote control of the television receiver, the video mode is set to the "A / V" key. If we see "No Signal then the receiver is connected correctly..
Next, you need to check the presence of a strong signal coming from the satellite to the receiver. We try to bring to the TV any random channel. The screen will display the channel number, broadcast from the satellite to the transmission plate and time. Since the antenna is not set up, the TV screen will have a blue color throughout the background..
We are looking for "i" on the receiver's console and turn on this button. Two "Signal Strength" and "Signal Quality" scales should appear on the screen, according to which settings should be set, and then we will independently adjust the satellite dish.
The last important stage of the work necessary to get a high-quality image on the TV is the proper tuning of the satellite dish and the Tricolor TV receiver. This action can be performed independently, keeping the antenna direction strictly south. Further actions on the reception of the signal from the antenna should preferably be carried out together with family members or any assistant.
Put it at the TV and wait for it from the teams on the result on the screen, independently and gradually turning the satellite dish up and down, to the right and to the left.
Much easier to configure the presence of the neighboring antenna "Tricolor TV". Just copy its direction and slope, achieving the most complete filling of the fields of both scales on the screen.
Start the signal adjustment from the vertical position of the dish mirror, gradually moving it in the horizontal plane. We look at the screen: if both scales are full, it means - a good signal was caught. Soon a high-quality image appears on the television receiver. If only one scale is full - the signal comes not from the satellite 'Tricolor TV you need to look further. Little by little turning the mirror of the antenna itself first horizontally, then vertically, we make the adjustment of the maximum filling of the scales and the best quality image on the screen TV.
