On these Farm s they raised race and draft horses, beef and dairy cattle, a variety of crops while always pursuing perfection and settling for only the best quality to be found. Known for horse racing champions across the province and producing Simmental cattle for many years, carriage rides behind the Royal percherons, even producing some maple syrup the Dell's have always had a high respect for the land and everything on it and it shows in all they do.

The Dell's want to publically thank their friends and neighbours for the incredible support over the years especially when there was a crisis and the neighbours did the work for them. These Farm s are true jewels in the area not only because of their rich soil structure but also because of the nurturing of the fine stewards, the Dell family.

RR 1 Millbank Crosshill. Well, FlyTye I got the 4 way amplifier and connected it all up and got nothing. No power on the antenna. I grabbed the amp that came with the antenna and connected the cable from the antenna to it. It looks kinda messy but the light came on the antenna and I have perfect reception on my 3 tv sets. Of course all that work for 12 channels may be kind of a waste of my time and energy…. There should be nothing connected inbetween the antenna and the splitter the amplified one.

Disconnect all swim units! Everything else I think we are on the same page on. I think I have one, maybe two, gray power inserters connected inside the house—since that supplies the power to the SWM—would that be where I plug the outdoor antenna adapter into it?

Also Theresa, Just thought of something….. That swim unit is already being powered by one of you coax cables in your house. Just take whatever cable is plugged into the power side of the swim unit and hook it into the power side of your new splitter. Then trace wherever DTV has their plug in your house somewhere and replace it with the adapter that came with your unit. It works exactly the way I described earlier with the exception of it being a four port splitter.

Try it out and if you have problems which I doubt just return it for the one I mentioned- as it is a little cheaper and has more ports. I hope it works. Please let me know so if I need to get the one you recommended I can do so. The antenna looks great. Dave, 55 miles is quite a distance. Buy an antenna that has a 75 to mile range. That way you should have no issues. Your antenna may not like to be split with splitters that are non- amplified.

Every time you split a signal you will have signal lost. If you live close enough and are receiving strong signals from your TV towers you can generally split using a regular splitter to- 2 TVs at most without pre-amplification. In your case and mines as well-just did this about 3 weeks ago you will need an amplified splitter or pre-amp to compensate signal loss for your splits.

I live about 35 miles away from our towers. I also have the same antenna the OP referenced, but splitting your signal is all the same regardless of brand. Be sure to place this unit as close to the antenna line in as possible, I would say no more than 20 feet or so keep line- in as short as possible. So basically I have: Being that I only need one line for the TV in our master bedroom, I used the additional line to power the unit.

The unit receives it power via coax so I took the end of the unused cable, plugged it into the adapter and into the wall. The splitters led will light up when it has power. So all the lines to all my rooms are already there. If you decide to go the preamp route you would just need to get power to the preamp and use a regular non amplified splitter. Thanks for the response.

I figured it out. When I followed the cords from the DirectTV dish under the house, I found the wires had been cut altogether from my system.

I cut the cord from the wall and connected the direct tv cord to the wall. I had direct TV. It was set up to operate 4 TVs. On the satellite the LNB had 4 connectors.

These cables are connected at the bottom of another box 16 Channel SWM go here if you want to see what the box looks like: On the other side 2 more cables that indicate swm are attached on one side. No cables are attached on the opposite side. I currently have cable internet and a flat antenna behind the TV.

My one worry, however, is reconnecting the direct tv cord will interrupt my cable internet since the signal travels through the same coaxial cables through the house. Will I have to run a second coaxial with the antenna signal behind my tv? Richard, Usually DirectTV will not use the same coax as your cable internet company. Should be separate if there are 2 companies involved. The signal enters and exits this box before being connected to an 8 port coax splitter which is where all the signals branch off to each room in my house.

What do I do with this? Jim, Yes replacing it with a splitter should work fine. You may need a signal booster depending on how close you are to the hd towers. Use a normal splitter and then add what you may need after. I just wanted to give an update.

I went back up to the roof and unscrewed the cable that was going through the arm of the dish and was connected to the antenna. As I had suspected, it was a problem with that coax cable — the pin was broken!

I disconnected the coax cable behind the dish, and hooked the antenna to that. Thanks so much again for providing this site! The channel 12 tower is on the same mtn top as the rest of the broadcast towers and all other broadcast channels come in clearly. DJ, Adjust the antenna and try another channel scan. Does the 12 tower in your city broadcast HD?

DJ, Possibly that is the furthest broadcast tower from you? Have you checked the broadcast map? How well do all the other channels work? How do I change my TV back so i can search for channels for a antenna tv.

The dish tech set the tv on channel 60 so the satellite would work, but I can only see what is playing in the den, I have no box to work this TV.

I hooked the antenna back up to the TV and disconnected the satellite cable but when I search for channels it still remains on What brand and model TV do you have? Carol Wallin, Are the 3 wires the same color? Are all 3 threaded into a small metal box? There is probably 3 that go into different parts of your home from the outside. Can you describe or explain more in detail?

Can you refer us to a picture of what you are looking at? Thanks for the feedback. Our satellite dish is mounted on a pole that is not higher than 5 ft. Will this antenna still work if we attach it to that dish?

Jody, It may or may not. How high will the antenna be mounted? Which antenna are you going to be using? Which city do you live in? Sorry about all the questions.

I took the new RCA antenna that you recommended off the satellite pole and brought it inside and hooked it up to the TV. I got 5 scrambled pixelated channels. Nancy, Yes the dish was affected but the cables cannot be as long as they are not going outside and out of sight, they may be cut. Or possibly the cable that you are using is damaged. Buy a new heavy insulated coax and run it from the antenna.

Then try your test again and see if the results are different. This is just a matter of using the correct antenna, correctly positioned, with quality coax cables going to the correct places. I should note that I installed the antenna that you suggested to the satellite dish. Thank you for your quick reply.

I was able to get everything connected, with lots of lefty loosies. Perhaps I need to get a signal booster and amp as you suggested? What do you think? Nancy, Yes you can try getting a signal booster and a good amp. Try moving the antenna further up and pointed in the direction of the TV towers. How far away are you from the TV towers in your city?

Be sure you have everything connected correctly and tight. Be sure the coax cables are of good quality. Not the Walmart types that are brittle and have horrible insulation. Tinker with every aspect of it and you should be able to get at least 20 channels if you are in the vicinity of towers broadcasting HD. I finally figured out that the cone is the plastic rectangular piece with the 3 white disks on it. After hours on a ladder trying to pry that thing off, I finally got it.

It will NOT twist out. Do I need a hex wrench to get this undone? Nancy, It should come off with simple tools.

You are trying to remove the coax cables from the dish cone right? It should be just threaded on. Lefty loosey righty tighty. If by chance you have a different setup than normal, if you see allen bolts, then yes use the allen or hex wrench to remove. Are the coax cables just threaded really really tight onto the unit? I also have a Dish network satellite setup; but will I need a preamp? I am going to use the current dish like suggested….

Rene, You may need an amp and splitter depending on how everything was installed. The easiest way to find out is hook everything up with the new antenna and if signal is not great then you can add an amp.

Have you checked to see how far away you are from the HD TV broadcasting towers? Thanks for all of this!! I went thought E-bay and there are hundred of product which confusing me. Purchase the most popular and reliable types. If needed ask them questions through eBay. Simon, In theory it should. The only way to know for sure is to just try it out. If it does not work properly, adjusting some things will help. What is the minimum distance for this?

Simonleecs, Yes you will need the amp and booster to get best signal. You should be okay. How far are you from main TV transmission towers in Malaysia? Simon, From your preparation list, you should be perfectly fine.

As for the decoder, DVB-T2, what country are you in and how far away from the center of the city are you? I have seen it asked but a couple times but am still not clear. My DirecTV was connected to 4 tvs. If I hook up the antenna to the coax going from the dish to the house will it be able to transmit to all 4 tvs? It seems like the DirecTV signal came in and was able to be split to the 4 tvs so the antenna signal should be able to as well, right? Also, I had heard that by definition, the dish does amplify the signal to the antenna if placed properly , the same way it amplified the DirecTV signal to the eye.

Riley, Yes hook it up just as the old dish with all 4 coax into a splitter. You have the right idea. When I terminate Dish they will want all their equipment returned. How to attach these 4 cables or what type of splitter do I need? Do I need an amplifier? Richard H, A splitter and amp will work perfectly.

You may have to tinker with the signal for awhile to get it perfect. Remember to use good high quality cables, splitters, and amps. Tim, Not required but…. I have ended my TV service with Comcast but I still have internet with them. So, from the Electric pole to my house is 1 line and then a 5 way digital splitter — 1 is cable coming in and 4 going out to each room in my house. I want to know if I can plug outside Antenna into one of the 4 room lines that is not the main internet line and it will make the other 3 rooms come in.

I know that one that has a splitter with internet on it- Ill have to run a separate line to TV possibly with another splitter. Any help with this would be great!! I think im on the right track, but if not let me know. Go from there and if there are issues reply back and we will look into it further for you. I currently have the HD dish on the side of my house and the local tv station antennas are up on a mountain about miles away. I have a couple of questions for you.

I have ordered the RCA antenna you recommended, will I need to get an amp for this or will this be all I need? Also, there are multiple cables connected to the Directv dish, can I use any of those to connect the antenna? Thank you for your time. Chris, You may need an amp, test out first. Use the cable that supplies the main TV input. OK I am new to this. I moved into this house and the house already has 3 satellite dishes attached to it.

I ask because according to Antennapoint. So what would I need to get the best reception? Great read, thank you very much for putting this up. I have three tvs in our house. I have one tv receiving 27 channels and one receiving 7.

Any idea why this could be happening? What would an attic installation involve step-wise that might be different from everything described above.

The current satellite dish sits right above our garage. Our attic entry is in the garage. Does that sound doable? Melissa, What you have explained is very doable. Use the highest quality splitters and possibly an amp if signal is weak.

Here is a step-by-step process for installing an antenna in your attic. The signal is not strong but it works. Does placing the antenna at the base to the dish improve the signal? I placed farther away than the where you have it in the picture Will the Direct TV power inverter make any difference to the signal?

My dish was tilted so that the widest part of the dish was not perpendicular with the roof. Would this help satellite signals but hinder the analogue? I did not use an amplifier. Will the above changes not make much of a difference and I should get an amplifier? Sticking it to the man! Kevin, Most of the things listed will not make much of a difference. If you get an amplifier, then you can experiment with moving some components around and fine tuning.

An amplifier will help. How many channels are you currently getting and how is the picture quality? I am really wanting to cut the bill…I have noticed that if I set this up it appears that there are 2 cables coax coming from my dish which is routed into a switch i. Tim, Yes remove the Dish switch node. That is used for Dish signal only.

You will need a splitter. A 3 to 1 splitter will work. Put the splitter wherever is more convenient and less work for you. Less work is using the existing cable from the dish down and then add splitter but can be done whichever way you wish.

Whichever requires less coax cable is best. I really want to get rid of Directv and try this. Bought the antenna you all recommended and havent shut off my service yet. I am having a hard time with the cables. You cables seem to run through the antenna but mine has the end part on which i cant seem to get off for the life of me.

Id like to make sure of what I channels I can get before cancelling service. Sean, Not sure what you mean by the end part of antenna you cannot remove. Can you explain in more detail? You should be able to simply use the existing cables. Disconnect the existing cables from the dish and install on the antenna.

Then remove the cables on the dish box in the house and attach to coax input on TV. Set up your TV to search for new channels using antenna mode. That should tell you if it is going to work before you cancel DirecTv. I may have more questions later, once I get it all hooked up. Steve, Once the storm clears…. Let us know how things go. Feel free to ask us any questions you may still have.

We are happy to assist you. Good luck and keep us updated. On the outside of my house, where the cable goes in, there is a 4 way splitter, and a two way splitter. It goes out to the two way splitter. Two go to the right and two go to the left.

And one goes into the house where the dvr is. Can I take the cable from the dish, plug it into the antenna, and hook up the power unit inside where the cable comes into the dvr soon to be gone, I hope? Steve, If you are asking if you can take the coax coming from the dish to the antenna, yes. You are simply just using the same cable that the dish used.

Also, yes you can hook up the power unit inside where the cable comes in. Test everything out and see what channels you receive. If the signal is low because it is split in multiple areas, you should be able to put an amplifier BEFORE the splitter or splitters. Find out which wires go where and if you want certain cables to go into certain rooms. You can remove splitters too if needed. As you stated above, it seems you have multiple splitters.

Remember less is better when it comes getting a stronger signal. Meaning the more splitters you have will lower signal quality, so remove any that may be unneeded. Back to being confused. If I plug into the antenna from the dish on roof, this power unit shows it plugs into it and the power unit goes to the tv.

Where do I put the splitter in the line from the antenna to be able to use it for all of my tvs 4? However, if you use a Video Signal Amplifier or a Video Distribution Amp, the picture on all 4 televisions should look great. Steve, You will need to use a splitter and an amplifier. Get an extremely high quality amplifier so it amps the signal to the max without quality loss. Cable coming into house plugged into antenna , into preamp, into television. Preamp plugs into a wall outlet.

My next question is, where does the preamp go…where is it placed? Where in the line? Steve, We just meant, what you own and what you rent. Yes, check with DirecTV and hopefully you are not renting. When I ask Directv to shut me off, what happens when you use the antenna through their cables? It will just automatically work? Also, does the directv dish and mount belong to Directv? Is there a problem with them if you mount another antenna to their equipment?

Steve, The cables used are coax and are the normal everyday cables used for any antenna also. If you cancel then your situation may be unique. Call them and ask what they take and what will be left. Do you own or rent the dish and mount? Obviously if you rent, they will take. I should mention I live in Newfoundland Canada and in the province there are six towers but they are all listed as vhf.

Most digital broadcasting is broadcast in UHF. Only a small hand full of cities broadcast digital in VHF. However, you should be able to get the six towers depending on the power they broadcast at and actual distance and signal type. Let us know what you get once you get everything hooked up and tuned in correctly. I just tried that antenna point and it gives me nothing and below it it says there are no transmitters within 60 miles.

Pat, It may not be accurate. Try Antenna Web or Radio Shack has a good article for pointing outdoor antennas. Hope that may help you a bit more. You should be able to get at least 2 stations if you have a long range antenna.

I wanted to hook it up at a cabin in the woods even if I only got 2 or 3 channels would be good. Cabin is 20 miles from nearest town. Pat, Use Antenna point to find the direction and other info for getting the best reception. You may need to use a high mast to get your antenna higher into the air.

Im using a long distance antenna miles on a 25 ft. Mass, my old dtv system used a swm, single wire multiswtich , 1;will an antenna work through a swm?

Frank, Does the SWM have a number after it? Sometimes its a 4 or 8. How many wires were going from the switch while the Dish was setup? Either way a long distance antenna may work using the switch depending on the switch itself.

Give it a shot and it should work. If not you will need to replace the switch. Also, is there a splitter installed in the line too? Using a long distance antenna, you should be able to pick up all stations.

Since you have a mile, it should technically work. I have a couple of questions. Pat, Yes it has proven to work with all old satellite dish models and brands. Your second question, how far off the grid are you? Have you determined how far the HD broadcast towers are from your present location?

I am In Omaha, one main tower is at Thanks for the great article on how to accomplish this! Jason, It may be possible but no guarantee. You may need an extra long range HD antenna. Check other antennas to find one that can go even further. Many of the descriptions on Amazon or other sites, will tell you max range. Choose the furthest range. So glad I found this! Now the issue is we are surrounded by trees, quite literally in a forest.

We have great view of western sky, nothing but trees all around other directions. Can this still work? And is it possible to obtain any internet doing something similar?

Thanks for any advice. Mary, Yes give it a try. If you are in the forest, it may be difficult to get a good signal. You would have to buy a mounting pole and put the antenna on that. For cable, if you are in the forest, the only other alternative is satellite internet mounted to the roof. Which would probably be more money that a normal coax cable for internet going to your home.

How far away are you from a main city that broadcasts television signals? Previous owner of my home was a tv geek. The entire house is wired to the teeth. Neither terribly high so quite accessible. Removed the cone with two attached coax that had been cut easily. There are two remaining coax cables in the channel that eventually go into the house there are also two from the other satellite dish, also with the cone cables cut.

So I have one antenna and potentially four coax connections going into the house. Is this a trial-and-error as to which will go to the cable port where my TV is? I only have the one tv. Just hoping there is a simpler way of troubleshooting this….. Jeri, Just trial and error.

Keep doing this until you find the one that is not cut and or working best. Make sure your antenna is pointing the correct direction for the location you are in approximation to the largest city near you.

Hi… I hooked up my new antenna to the existing dish antenna and I am getting no signal to my tv when I go inside and try to scan for channels. However when I disconnect from the outside dish and bring the antenna inside the house and hook it up directly to the antenna outlet on the tv I get like 50 plus channels……My question is why is it when, I hook it up to the outside old dish mount and use the existing dish coax I get no signal?

Please, any advice would helpful. Thank you in advance.

Older belt driven circle saw. Next I carefully climbed back up the ladder to screw the arm back onto the dish and hook up the coax. Single covered buggy, brakes 2 door.

I also reused the mount and just removed the dish. As for the decoder, DVB-T2, what country are you in and how xplornet hookup away from the center of the city are you? Verbal announcements take precedence over written material. Round Xplornet hookup Nice Shape I. Every xplornet hookup you split a signal you will have signal lost. Where do I put the splitter in the line from the antenna to be able to use it for all of my tvs 4?
