This kit contains all the essential items required to receive FOXTEL or AUSTAR whilst on the road (with your own decoder). We call it our LITE kit because we have only included the bare essentials when putting this kit together. If you are considering buying a portable satellite kit for FOXTEL our AUSTAR you should also consider our TravelSat-V2 Portable DELUXE Kit.
PAY TV ON THE ROAD – YES !!
We all like to travel as far as we can from home to be away from it all. To enjoy everything that Australia offers. The great outdoors is simply the best.
For those of you spending a lot of time on the road, who like to catch up with the odd show now and then, especially when the dark nights come early, it’s nice to have access to TV just for an hour or two.
If you already subscribe to Pay TV then why not bring your decoder along and access all of your favourite channels like Discovery, BBC World News and National Geographic while on your camping trip?
WHAT’S IN THIS KIT?
The TravelSat-V2 Portable PayTV Satellite Kit is a complete system that, when connected to your PayTV decoder such as Foxtel or Austar, will enable you to access all of the channels you subscribe to at home, while on the road. It’s that simple.
Providing your pay TV service is via satellite at home then it’ll work perfectly virtually everywhere in Australia (will not work with cable decoders).
THE NEW IMPROVED DESIGN
Our new TravelSat-V2 dish is now offered with this system. Featuring rolled edge reflector of dimensions 75cm x 83cm, it’ll work everywhere in Australia.
It packs down easily to a flat pack and folds neatly away into its included padded carry bag.
Folding LNB arm on the front makes setup time very quick.
As you travel East or West, North or South, you’ll need to adjust the elevation of the dish and we can supply a comprehensive manual that provides this information. Adjusting the elevation of the TravelSat-V2 dish is easy.
WHAT IS INCLUDED?
TWIN OUTPUT LNB
The included LNB (amplifier on the front of the dish) is compatible with Austar and Foxtel and has a twin cable wired from the dish. This is suitable for all standard pay TV boxes, MyStar and Foxtel IQ.
SATELLITE METER – SF3235 Analogue Satellite Meter
You’ll need to align your satellite dish to the satellite and to do this we include a needle and tone satellite finder as standard.
This is a basic meter as sold by most other satellite companies and does require a little patience and understanding to get the dish aligned correctly. The meter is connected inline and gets its power from the connected coaxial cable coming from the van.
A sensitivity dial is adjusted on the side of the finder and the dish is rotated until a signal is found. This is indicated by a rise of the needle on the display. If the needle goes off the scale, it can be adjusted lower and the dish fine tuned for maximum signal. If no signal is being received by the decoder inside the van, then you may be on the wrong satellite. Repeat the above until the next satellite is found.
- a short twin cable for the dish to connect to the meter
- twin 10m cable from the dish to the caravan wall
- twin internal 1m cable from the inside wall to the decoder.
