Room with Sat Receiver

Room with Sat Receiver

In this scenario, a satellite receiver is added to an Avcast network. Typically, a satellite receiver gets a direct signal feed from the satellite dish, as shown here. In this case, the satellite receiver is treated like any other video source. The CableCaster replaces the splitter where Cable TV or antenna signals enter the home. A notch filter eliminates unwanted signals from the antenna or Cable TV service (you specify filter range). The satellite receiver in Room 1 is added to the Avcast network with a MediaCaster, which takes the audio/video output of the receiver and modulates it to a TV channel. The MediaCaster is set to a "Personal TV Channel", say channel 65. Any TV tuned to channel 65 can view the satellite receiver. Room 4 has an IRCaster/IRDetector installed. This enables users to control the satellite receiver with its infrared remote control from Room 4. Sit back and enjoy The Sopranos on every TV in your home! Additional MediaCasters and IRCasters can be added to the network (~8 video sources maximum).
