Customer has 3 outlets for FTA. needs 6. Has two regular Austar boxes. Wants to send Austar to another TV on patio.
I said I can send Austar to all TV FTA outlets around the house, should be able to send austar RF from both boxes to all outlets.
Since ch levels are low 37-44 db at existing 3 outs I'll put in a wideband amp in roof cavity just below antenna. Band 3 feed off antenna (Mt W, Hobart) and UHF feed from PAyTV RF into the amp. The two RF feeds will be mixed before the amp with a Band 5/1-4 mixer and put into the UHF side of the amp, attenuated with gain control. The band 5 feed will be on CH 69, the Band1-4 feed will be adjusted on the second Pay box to Ch35. Reckon this should work. There are no UHF translators in the area. Any thoughts?
I guess there is a reason why you didn,t do plan 'A' , Austar to the one tv with a wireless A/V sender. M'bozo is on the money
with his post. Watch the levels and all should be good, I have done a few jobs over the years before AV senders became a
reasonable price sending FTA overseas tv or Christian tv and VCR RF output via high channel
UHF signals to other tvs and everything was ok just using a 2 way splitter in reverse to feed into the system. Band 4/5 diplexers I've found are not to
common off the shelf and splitters seem ok to do the job.
