7. Connecting the satellite antenna
In order to check the correctness of connection of external equipment, for example a satellite
antenna or converter, read the installation manual or hire a professional technician!
Good reception is conditional on the precise placement of the
antenna. Even the best antenna will cause reception problems if it
is incorrectly adjusted. Even slight placement errors may render
reception impossible or considerably impair image/sound quality.
Before installation make sure that the location is suitable. The
proper direction may be initially determined by making a
comparison with other antennas. There should be no objects
directly in front of the antenna, for these may block the signal from
reaching the bowl! Once you select an optimal location for the
antenna, fix and adjust it initially, and then proceed to a precise
adjustment. Each antenna is fitted with regulating screws that
make it possible to correct its vertical and horizontal placement.
Adjusting is somewhat more difficult in the case of digital tuners. You cannot perform
adjustments on the basis of the image, because this appears with a certain delay. What is more,
the indicators available in the settings menu also act with a delay, and therefore adjustment
may take considerable time and be very imprecise. An antenna signal meter will be
indispensable for setting up the antenna. The meter must be connected to the antenna cable
between the converter and the receiver. This will confirm the presence of a voltage that
switches the converter from the tuner and show the signal strength for individual satellites. We
strongly recommend hiring a professional technician!
11
8. Connecting an antenna system with a positioner
USALS type positioners manufactured by Stab will guarantee the correct operation of your
Ferguson receiver. In order to connect an antenna system to a USALS positioner, you should
connect the positioner out to the LNB IN of the Ferguson receiver. The role of the positioner
installed between the mast and the antenna is to turn the bowl in such a way as to ensure that
it is directed to various satellite positions. The positioner is built in such a way that its axis of
revolution is parallel to the direction towards the North Star. For this reason, its mounting is
frequently termed the Polar mount. In consequence, when the satellite changes position, it is
not necessary to adjust the azimuth and elevation independently. The antenna revolves only in
one axis. Using the introduced scale, the motor inclines in such a way as to ensure the
appropriate placement of the axis of revolution. The angle of inclination corresponds to the
latitude of the location where the antenna is installed. As in the case of a fixed antenna, the
angle of elevation of the bowl must first be set. For this purpose, use is made of a satellite
located as close as possible to the south of your location. Ideally, the position of the satellite
should not differ from that of the said direction by more than 5°. In other words, you should use
the satellite position closest to the longitude of the point of installation. For example, if your
longitude is 73° W, you should search for a satellite located at a position between 68° and 78°
W.
The USALS function considerably simplifies configuration of the antenna. The Ferguson receiver
requires that you enter the geographical coordinates of the antenna in order to automatically
calculate the angle of revolution of the motor for individual satellites. The receiver activates the
positioner automatically and turns the antenna to the selected satellite. When a signal is locked
on, you should precisely adjust the antenna's elevation and azimuth settings in order to
optimise signal reception. When correcting the azimuth, the entire antenna assembly and
positioner revolve with respect to the mast. If initially the antenna was not directed precisely
south, you can correct this now. When you have finished with the first satellite, all other
satellites will be remembered automatically, provided that you have introduced their satellite
position values correctly.
Without the USALS function, programming of the system is much more difficult. To this end you
should use the DiSEqC 1.2 function, which turns the antenna to the selected satellite in a nearly
identical manner. Since, however, it does not take into consideration the local geographical
coordinates, the movement is effected on the basis of the prime meridian and the equator.
Therefore it is necessary to introduce corrections separately for each satellite. Due to these
difficulties, manufacturers of DiSEqC 1.2 positioners frequently provide useful software on their
websites, using which you can easily calculate the location of the satellite.

9. Connecting the satellite receiver
The following illustrations show cable connections for a television and other devices connected
to the receiver. If you require any assistance in connecting individual devices, contact your local
technician. Before connecting or altering connections, disconnect the receiver from the mains !!!
9.1 Connecting to the TV via HDMI cable (recommended)
1. Connect the antenna to the LNB IN socket of the receiver.
2. Connect the HDMI to the receiver out and the television in.
Connection by means of an HDMI cable allows you to obtain the highest image quality.
If you have an amplifier with an HDMI out and in, which supports audio over HDMI,
connect the devices by two HDMI cables. As in the following figure: one cable to the
amplifier, and the other from the amplifier to the television set.
13
9.2 Connecting to the TV via Component (YPbPr) cable
1. Connect the antenna to the LNB IN socket of the receiver.
2. Connect the video and audio with five cinch cables to the television set.
Three cables, colored green, blue and red, are used for the component signal. The two
remaining cables, red and white, are used to connect audio (right and left channel).
9.3 Connecting an audio system
1. Digital sound (including surround sound, if transmitted) may be obtained through the
optical (SPDIF) socket. The following figure presents the SPDIF connection.
2. Stereo sound may be obtained by connecting cinch cables (white and red) for the left and
right channels.
9.4 Connecting external memory
1. The receiver supports all types of hard disk drives in housings that are equipped with an
independent power supply. The sole condition is that the hard disk has to have a single
basic partition that is formatted in FAT32 (recommended), EXT2, EXT3.
2. We recommend that you regularly archive data on your PC computer. A large number of
files with recordings may slow down the operation of the receiver (slow loading of the file
list).
Your receiver has one USB 2.0 host port to connect memory devices (memory stick, external
hard disk) formatted in FAT32, EXT2, EXT3, NTFS.
14
For USB memory devices formatted in NTFS your receiver can only playback files
(movies, MP3s, pictures). Recording is not possible.
9.5 Connecting another receiver
Another receiver may be connected through the LNB OUT socket. Please keep in mind, however,
that only one receiver may be used at any one time! Permanent damage may result if both are
turned on simultaneously.
9.6 Connecting to the local network (LAN)
PSTN Modem: RJ11 connector – The receiver has a built-in modem to connect to an analog
PSTN telephone line. Modem enables two-way communication in order to gain access to the
Internet and has the function of interactive exchanges. Connect your receiver to the network
with a Telephone cable.
Ethernet: RJ45 connector - Connect your receiver to the network with an Ethernet cable.
To operate all features of your receiver connect your receiver to your network via a
Router which is connected to the Internet. If you cannot connect to your network or if
‘Connection failed!’ is displayed for network features check again the address and the
network connection and try again.

electronic device, usually fitted with card
slots, that allows access to coded pay-perview channels on a receiver equipped with a
CI socket.
CI - Common Interface – CI sockets of
digital receivers are used for the installation of
CAM conditional access modules, and thus
allow you to view coded pay-per-view
channels through these modules.
DVB-S the Digital Video Broadcasting

noise factor and power consumption.
MCPC - multiple channels per carrier –
more than one signal (channel) is transmitted
on a given frequency (transponder). All of
these channels comprise a single data stream,

transmits
numerous
compressed
digital
channels.
DiSEqC - (Digital Satellite Equipment
Control) a communication protocol, used
between a satellite receiver and equipment
such as switches or positioners, which
supports switching between television signal
sources and antenna control.
USALS – (Universal Satellites Automatic
