Many high definition receivers do not have a UHF modulator built into them (this is the Aerial in and out
connections on the back) The reason for this is that manufacturers do not consider UHF to be of sufficiently high
quality to justified inclusion in an HD receiver. However, many people do have a UHF distribution system in their
home so that they can view channels in many rooms. If the only outputs on a receiver are scart and HDMI it
is not possible to connect into the distribution system and pipe the satellite around the house.
This modulator solves this problem. You can scart the satellite signal into the modulator and feed the UHF output into the
distribution system. The frequency (channel) can be set so that it does not interfere with other
items (aerial, DVD etc.) that may also be on the system. This is a very useful product.

Most freesat receivers need a modulator AND an omni link. These two products at reduced price are
available. See the Modulator and Omni Link discounted kit.
XRAY radio remote extender.
Wireless control for all receivers.
This is a wireless system of extending the remote control to other rooms.
It is not infra red - it uses radio frequencies that will pass through walls and
have a long range. Simply walk into any room with your handset (or extra handset)
and you can control your satellite receiver wherever it is in the house.

The new Freesat service on 28E.
The new Freesat boxes can be connected to a standard Sky Mini dish or any dish pointing at Astra 2 at 28E
although a standard 60cm dish does work better. Or the clear transparent 60cm dish
This service will include standard definition (SD) and high definition (HD) programs.
Freesat is a new UK service and have a new dedicated electronic program guide (EPG) that is only suitable for
28E and like a Sky receiver, provides detailed channel listings.
The EPG details program listings in advance and is considerably more detailed than in free to air, or CI, SD and HD
Dedicated Freesat receivers,
The HD Humax box is £149.95 and free delivery In stock.
The the Grundig HD box is £149.95 and free delivery In stock.
(The Grundig box works on 12V and 240V compact unit)
see top of this page.
Freesat receivers are not really suitable for any other satellite than 28E. They only have auto scanning on 28.
That means every transponder would have to be scanned manually on every satellite. This could take a day to do
just one satellite.
Accessing new channels in the menus is not easy and requires a number of button pushes every time.
Standard free to air and CI type satellite receivers.
Standard receiver do work on all free to air channels.
There could be an issue with the "red button access" used on Freesat receivers and ITV may not work on some
standard receivers. There are no issues with getting all Freesat channels on the Technomate 6900
Standard receivers are available in high definition and some are twin tuner PVRs (like a Sky plus or Sky HD).
They let you record one channel and watch another. Pause live footage etc.
See the Topfield 7710
Standard definition (non-Freesat epg) boxes but with twin tuner PVRs are at www.satellitesuperstore.com/twintuner.htm.
Also single tuner HD boxes with optional external hard drives are available - see www.satellitesuperstore.com/technomatehd.htm
All of these models are very up-market and have many more features than a Freesat box. They work on many satellites.
Dishes in the UK,
If you don't already have a satellite dish or would simply like to receive many more channels, we would recommend
the use of a 60cm dish for the Freesat service. Either a solid black dish or a clear transparent one.
Why not get 3 or 4 satellites all on one fixed dish - see www.satellitesuperstore.com/3satsystems.htm
Also check out the clear transparent 60cm dishes on the Transparent satellite dishes
Long pole "above the gutter" wall
mounts for fixed dishes up to 1.0m
5 bolt fixing. Various stand off distances and 2 pole lengths - 1m and 2m. All pole diameters are 50mm
The poles are galvanised. the stand off distance is from the wall is to the inside of the pole.
If the dish is larger than 1.0m use a heavy duty "above the gutter" wall mount from our

page or a ground stand if applicable.
