Technisat HDFS Connections


All satellite receivers need a cable from a satellite dish LNB (low noise block), the connector on the far left is the LNB input, this is an F connector and whould be connected to the LNB via a satellite grade coaxial cable eg RG6. To get the best from the Technisat HDFS connect an HDMI cable between the box and your HD Ready TV, this will connect both the audio and video digitally. If using an older TV use the TV scart output and make sure it is set to RGB mode. If you connect a DVD recorder or VCR to the Technisat HDFS use a scart lead from the VCR scart to the input on the DVD recorder. The Yellow, Red and White phono connectors are composite video and right and left channel audio, these can be connected to a TV with phono audio video inputs using a 3 x phono cable, it is not recommended to use these as composite video will give a lower quality picture.

To connect the Technisat HDFS to a surround sound system you should use one of the SPDIF outputs, it has both optical toslink and digital coaxial outputs, use either a toslink cable or digital coaxial cable, either will give 5.1 surround sound. If using a surround system with an HDMI input, the box can be connected to the surround amplifier and the surround amplifier to the TV.
