We recently installed a Sky HD satellite system for a customer who had been let down by sky, because the sky engineer who came to fit the satellite dish couldn't get any signal because a large Tree was blocking the signal. No matter where it was positioned on the house, whether it was the side of the property or on the chimney breast, there was no signal being received due to this big tree blocking the satellite signal.
Having a lot of experience in these situations we were able to help this customer. First of all we needed to detect whether there was anywhere on their property that we would be able to get a clear line of sight for the satellite dish to receive a strong signal, even if this meant going to the bottom of the garden. By attaching the satellite dish to a tripod for stability we were able to get a strong signal for this customer, but it was at the bottom of the garden, and there were no building structures for us to safely and securely attach the dish. So what to do?
Installation of Sky+ HD TV by only using one cable, in Blackpool This customer had signed up to Sky TV installation for the Sky+ HD Package. The Sky engineer turned up to the customers property here in Blackpool only to install the Sky Satellite Dish. The Sky Engineer wouldn't use an existing Satellite TV Cable that was running discreetly into the house. With Sky+ HD the cable used is a twin cable and the existing cable running through the property was a single. So having been refused by the Sky Fitter, the customer phoned Julian Voigt Aerial & Satellite to resolve the issue.
The solution to installing Sky+ HD using a single feed or 1 cable was to use a 'stacker/destacker' unit. This enables the signal from the 2 inputs from the Satellite Dish to be stacked so they flow through the single satellite Cable & are de-stacked at the other end where it connects tho the Sky TV Digital Receiver. As shown in the video it consists of connecting a stacker box at the satellite dish, & the other box By the Sky TV Digibox Receiver. All in all this customer from Blackpool was very happy with the result and minimal disruption to his property.
