How to Connect Dv3 T2 to TV
Digital terrestrial television (CETV) makes it possible to receive federal television channels and radio stations included in the first and second multiplex in the MPEG-4 standard. Below you can find a list of these channels.
The peculiarity of this type of television broadcasting is that you can watch the listed channels in high quality. As you know, the past generation of broadcasting. analog terrestrial TV is already outdated, since the broadcast picture has a low resolution, and on modern widescreen televisions the image has very low quality and blurry. The new broadcasting format opens up new facets, giving subscribers high-quality clear picture and high-quality stereo sound.
Broadcasting of DTV is carried out in principle, as well as the usual broadcasting of decimeter channels, only 10 digital channels enter one channel. There are only 2 such channels; they represent the first and second multiplex. To process the signal, you need a special digital terrestrial receiver. set-top box.
Let’s take a closer look at the set of equipment that is needed to receive high-definition digital terrestrial television channels.
- Receiver (tuner);
- Coaxial cable;
- Cable for connecting the receiver to the TV.
To receive the DTV signal, you need a conventional decimeter antenna that receives channels in the frequencies 470-860 MHz. Antennas can be of two types: home (indoor) or external. The type of antenna must be selected relative to the distance from the TV tower (repeater).
A home antenna is only suitable when there is a TV tower in your city, at a distance of no more than 15 km from your home. In this case, you can do with a room antenna. If your distance to the TV tower exceeds 15 km, then you need to use an external antenna.
Talk to your neighbors, for sure some of them are watching DTV, find out which antenna they use and what level and signal quality.
The first thing to do is select a receiver. The receiver is a special set-top box for the TV, As mentioned earlier, which processes the signal and sends it to the TV, the channels are tuned and switched through the receiver. Today on the market there is a fairly wide selection of receivers for receiving DVB-T2 channels.
As for the choice, they are all almost identical and simple, choose a device based on the availability of additional functions: the functionality and design of the menu, as well as the presence of connectors for connecting to a TV.
Some modern televisions, from the middle and premium segment, have models with a built-in DVB-T2 tuner, thanks to which you will not need to buy a receiver, but simply plug in the cable from the antenna into the appropriate jack and configure the channels.
If you have satellite TV installed, then some models of satellite receivers support the installation of CAM modules, including the DVB-T2 module. Thus, you only need to install the module in the receiver, connect the cable from the antenna to the second input jack, and you can watch digital terrestrial television channels along with satellite ones.
Most decimeter antennas (both indoor and outdoor) include a built-in amplifier, the signal from which is amplified by the receiver, which is quite enough for reliable reception if the type of antenna is selected correctly.
Consider the cases when you need a separate signal amplifier. Using the DVB-T2 receiver, you can check the signal level, for this you need to enter the settings and the corresponding scale will be displayed there. Connect the antenna to the receiver. if the signal level is around 75%, and the picture quality suits you well, then the amplifier is not needed. When the signal level is lower and the picture goes with noise, it is recommended to install an amplifier.
This is a regular television cable that transmits a signal from the antenna to the receiver. We recommend that you purchase a cable with a copper circuit and screen, as it is of the highest quality, which will ensure good signal transmission and long cable life. Pay attention to the cable sheath, the stronger it is, the better, since the cable will be less susceptible to external influences: interference and damage.
Cable to connect the receiver to the TV
If there are no HDMI connectors, which is somewhat bad, then use SCART, RCA, and others.
Installation and setup
First, install the antenna. Indoor antenna is usually installed on the window. You can try to install an external antenna on the balcony or fix it on the bracket near the window if you live in the direction of the TV tower location. Run the cable from the antenna to the receiver. In the case when the signal is weak enough, or the TV tower is on the other side, the antenna must be installed on the roof of the house. Point the antenna towards the TV tower, just look at the direction of the adjacent antennas.
Unpack the receiver, connect the cable from the antenna to it, then connect the cable from the TV. Next, turn on the receiver to power, turn it on and make the initial settings: language, time and time zone, etc.
If the model supports automatic channel scanning, then you can use it. If there is no automatic search, then in manual mode you need to select the desired channels of two multiplexes. In the regions, these channels may differ, most often these are channels 35 and 45.
Find the channel of the first multiplex and scan it, and then select the channel of the second multiplex and also scan it. The fact is that each of these channels has its own package of 10 channels. By the way, it is in this settings menu that the signal strength scale will be displayed. If the signal level is low, you can rotate the antenna, choosing its best direction, based on the scale.
That’s it, now you can enjoy watching digital terrestrial television.
