/ Satellite type connections in flat in Poland
In my flat there are two types of connections for the TV. One is very big and old, kinda like the UK UHF TV connection but a lot bigger! From this I am receiving a poor quality terrestial TV signal.
This is an old tv standard socket. Central distributed, amplified air TV signal installation called zbiorcza or AZART. Now abandoned.
Next to this is another box with its outlets pointing downwards. These outlets are idential to the UK satellite TV female connection. The type that required you to screw on a male connector.
This is new one, called kablówka. End point of the another, independent installation. Often physically disconnected in basement concentrator until you pay abonament for cable tv provider.
I have tried connecting a polsat decoder to these conenctions, with and without LNB power and there is no signal from any of the recognised satellites. Is this maybe some sort of cabel TV connection? Do I need a decoder? A friend at work says I just connect this directly to my TV but I'm not convinced, surely it's the wrong type of connection and impedence? ohh, when i tried a few months ago, accidentally with the LNB power option on, I got a little spark.... oops. Maybe it -was- satellite...
Don't deliver supply to this socket. There isn't any possibility to receive satellite signal to feed polsat decoder. You need the dish. Just connect this socket directly to TV and run UHF band tunning. Band should be densely covered by tv programs.
