    Question What type of cable from digicomp to TV does Tata Sky provide?

    Hi,

    I am planning to buy Tata Sky. I have 2 TV's and 1 PC with TV tuner card. I have been using services from Cable operator so far. So I use to connect that regular cable (i guess they call it RJ 45 or something right?) to my PC tuner card port. And an audio cable from Audio Out port to my Line In port of my sound card. My tuner card also has other ports like S-video and some port(yellow in color) with Comp written nearby it.

    So I am not sure what type of cable/wire is provided by Tata sky people to connect from Digicomp to TV. If it is regular RJ 45 then no problem at all.
    Please let me know.

    Thanks.

    TataSKY (and any other DTH provider) provides signals thru a dish and an STB. The dish's LNB receives the (encrypted) signal from the satellite directly and the STB decrypts this signal. The STB has two outputs - RF output and RGB (composite) output.

    Either outputs can be used for a TV.

    If you use the RF output as input to TV the RF cable is used (not RJ45 - which is an ethernet LAN cable). One of the TV channels must be tuned to this RF signal (say channel 1). In this mode, you must keep the TV channel constant (e.g. Ch 1) and you can sift/browse thru the TV channels by changing channels on the STB.

    If you use the RGB (composite) output as input to TV the RGB composite (yellow-white-red) RCA cable is used. The input goes to the TV's AV inputs. In this mode, you must keep the TV on AV mode (Video 1/2/3 or whatever) and you can sift/browse thru the TV channels by changing channels on the STB.

    You can watch channels on computer directly by plugging in the STB's RF cable output to the input of the computer's TV tuner card. But channels will be controlled by STB only.
