Have moved into a new house in Taupo and have discovered a sky dish installed but in the complete wrong end of the house. I do not want to make a new install and so am reviewing my options. This has been made more difficult by it being a newish house and having installed slots to plug in the TV.
These installs are very confusing. Basically in the lounge is a plate (PIC A) that has two screw in Coax points (like a point you screw into the back of the sky from the dish). One says “In” the other says “Out”. Now in the family room is another plate (PIC B) that again has an “In” slot and an “Out” slot. This plate is not coax screw in like the first but a male aerial plug for the “Out” and a female aerial plug for the “In”. Finally in the bedrooms is a single plate that has a male plug (like for an aerial) that just says “Television”.
The only input into the house in regards to aerials I am aware of is the ones shown in PIC C. Now I have tried to tune the TV in the family room by plugging the aerial “Out” point into the aerial in on my TV, no luck with no effect on the picture.
So basically my question is simple, what are these plugs for and how do I take advantage of them!? Can I plug the sky decoder into these? Or can I plug the satellite into the Lounge ones and then the decoder in the “Out” of the Family room one? Please note the sky dish is quite separate to all of these plugs, it just comes through the wall in the lounge.
Any help is very much appreciated!!
