    Default Foxtel & FTA one cable help

    Hi guys, I have just moved to a newly completed apartment which has 2 F-type connectors with FTA & Foxtel (Satellite) combined on to both connectors (Eg. Satellite & FTA on one cable).

    I'm having an issue with my VAST box which is picking up some of the transponders and not others (0 signal on the transponder that contains Imparja but full signal strength on the transponder that has Southern Cross Central).

    All VAST transponders are V pol I think so I can't work out why some would have full strength and others nothing at all. Both sockets give the same result.

    FTA reception is at full strength on both F-type sockets.

    Any suggestions as to what might be the issue?

    Thanks in advance for all your help.

    Marc

    Are you using a separator (diplexer in reverse) between the outlets and your decoder and TV to separate the terrestrial signals from the satellite signals?

    When you combine satellite and terrestrial signals on a single cable, you need to separate them at the other end.

    Any satellite equipment supplier will have them.

    You'll need to search for one local to you.

    (Maybe another member who lives in the area may know of a supplier)

    They are also available from online stores, ebay, etc.

    Here's an .
