I'm new to the Kapiti area and to TC cable. Having moved into a rental property I connected my Freeview satellite decoder up to what looked like the cable for the Sky dish that I can see on the roof. When it didn't work I checked out two other F-connectors (also unlabelled, of course) on an adjacent wallplate. Nothing works. Now, having realised that one of them could well be a TC cable, I'm not sure if the decoder has been fried or whether the lack of signal is due to other causes. Does anyone know if load or voltage on TC or a regular VHF antenna could damage a sat. decoder?

It's highly unlikely.

The TCL cable will potentially be disconnected at tap on the side of the house or pole is there is no service anyway so probably don't be connected.

We do have TCL cable in use for phone & internet (at a different location in the house)

Problem solved. Cable had been chopped off in the roof space.
