shadybrothers: I have just installed this box for my grandma, have the lounge tv running nicely, I have run an extra cable from the RF out to the tv in the kitchen, but cannot get this tv to tune in the free view channel from the box. Do I need to get a modulator in-between to allow the t1020 to send the signal to the second tv?



Yes, the T1020 has no built in modulator

diamonddata: i installed the 1.1a driver to see if it'd fix the issues listed above.

now my t1020 won't begin recording from sleep mode at all. all scheduled programs to be recorded are not actioned when my t1020 is left in sleep mode. I'd rather not have the unit (or my hdd) on 24 hours a day.

anyone still have a copy of an older version? preferably, version a3ust13_17_01oe. dated 22 may 2011. .

I'd like to go back to the last version where i was at least still able to begin recording from sleep mode. i couldn't find any links on the dishtv site to any past drivers.


Just seen your post so am probably to late. But have copy of v1_0f.zip if you still want it?

AFAIK the RF out at the back is a loop through from the antenna, so you would need a set-top box for the tv in the kitchen

Would it need a modulator to boost the signal to the 2nd set top box?




this is a slap in the face!

A modulator wouldnt boost the signal.
A modulator converts the raw UHF radio signal to a composite video/audio signal.

if you wanted or needed to boost the signal you would use a pre-amplifier preferably at the masthead (antenna on roof).

Theres no getting around the fact you need a second STB for freeview on the kitchen tv.
If you can get a good Analogue (UHF/Prime/Maori) TV picture on the second tv via your extra cable then you shouldn`t need any kind of booster,even for freeview.But if you do you can add it later.

Good luck. Allan

Would the modulator allow the kitchen tv to view the same channel as what is displayed on the lounge set top box?

Yes, but the price you pay for a decent modulator, you may as well get another box
