Hey all!


I have SKY, and my wife wants to use it on the Marquee, instead of our Mits

monitors. That would be pretty cool since we just moved the 98kg monitor up

the stairs, which was not very funny.


But, getting it to work at the Marquee location would require something like 30-40

meter cable, Dish to Sky box. I don't know if a bigger dish would have much

better gain, right now the cable are 10meters, and the dish is 85cm.


But my first thought is, how many use sat/cable-tv instead of going 'closed circuit'

only? And, how do you set up the box? No testgrids etc. (in mine at least)


Thanks,


Nicholas

It's a problem with cable TV and satellite. Sometimes they may have test signals broadcast on a channel at night, but other than that, you're SOL. With Direct TV satellite, the Samsung SIR TS-360 has component "input", which you can look at from the output, but that's about it. Maybe "some" boxes have secret remote codes you can enter to get some type of test signal.
