STB Connection  
There are several ways of connecting the STB to your existing Audio/TV system.  
We recommend using one of the following set-up for best results:  
Set-up 1  
TV only  
Connect one end of RCA/Cinch cable to the RCA/Cinch socket on the back of  
the STB and the other end to a RCA/Cinch socket on your TV.  
If your TV doesn’t have a RCA/Cinch socket, connect one end of RF cable to  
the RF OUT on the back of the STB and the other end to a RF input socket  
on your TV.  
Finally connect the coaxial cable from the LNB to the LNB IN socket on the STB.  
7
 
STB Connection  
Set-up 2 With Hi Fi System  
Connect an RCA/Cinch stereo cable from the AUDIO L, R sockets on the back  
of the STB to the LINE, AUX, SPARE OR EXTRA input sockets on your Hi Fi  
System.

STB Connection  
Set-up 3  
TV with Terrestrial antenna  
Connect one end of RCA/Cinch cable to the RCA/Cinch socket on the back of  
the STB and the other end to a RCA/Cinch socket on your TV.  
If your TV doesn’t have a RCA/Cinch socket, connect one end of RF cable to  
the RF OUT on the back of the STB and the other end to a RF input socket on  
your TV.  
Connect one end of RF cable to the RF IN on the back of the STB and the other  
end to a terrestrial antenna connection or the socket for public antenna on the  
wall.  
Finally connect the coaxial cable from the LNB to the LNB IN socket on the STB.

STB Connection  
Set-up 4  
TV with Motorised System (DiSEqC 1.2)  
Connect one end of RCA/Cinch cable to the RCA/Cinch socket on the back of  
the STB and the other end to a RCA/Cinch socket on your TV.  
If your TV doesn’t have a RCA/Cinch socket, connect one end of RF cable to  
the RF OUT on the back of the STB and the other end to a RF input socket  
on your TV.  
Connect one end of your coaxial cable to the LNB IN connector on the STB and  
the other end to the REC or Receiver connector on the DiSEqC 1.2 motor.  
Connect the coaxial cable from the LNB to the LNB connector on the DiSEqC  
1.2 motor.

Reference  
Set-up 5  
TV with Motorised System and Positioner  
Connect one end of RCA/Cinch cable to the RCA/Cinch socket on the back of  
the STB and the other end to a RCA/Cinch socket on your TV.  
If your TV doesn’t have a RCA/Cinch socket, connect one end of RF cable to the  
RF OUT on the back of the STB and the other end to a RF input socket on  
your TV.  
Connect the coaxial cable from the LNB of your motorised system to the LNB IN  
socket on the STB.  
Connect the motor cables to your positioner.  
(please refer to the manual for your positioner and actuator)  
Connect your positioner to your TV if necessary.  
Reference  
DiSEqC 1.0 Connection  
All our receivers are designed to be DiSEqC 1.0 compatible. This allows  
multiple antennas to be connected to the STB at the same time.  
If you have two or more fixed antennas or LNBs then we recommend you  
use a DiSEqC 1.0 swtich.  
Connect the coaxial cable from the first LNB to the LNB 1 or LNB A input  
connector of the DiSEqC swtich.  
Do the same for any other LNBs that you have.  
Connect one end of a Coaxial cable to the RX output connector of the  
DiSEqC swtich, connect the other end to the LNB IN socket on the STB.  
DiSEqC 1.2 Connection  
Please refer to 34 page.  
Connection of satellite antenna  
To the digital receiver, you can connect either a single satellite antenna  
directly or LNB of multi-feed equipment.
