    Witam,
    Mam podobny problem.Internet wypowiada się niejasno.W każsdym razie
    "cyfrówka "satelitarna może na tym nie pójść.Piszą że jest to jakiś tuner
    telewizji kablowej,ale niestety dziwnie "bełkocą"na temat tego kabla.
    Coś im się miesza kabel kablówki i kabel od "talerza"z dachu.Być może pudelko łapie oba te rodzaje?Teraz problem,najakim kanale?Czy w Anglii jest dokładnie ten sam kanał kablówki co u Pana?Tu na Wybrzeżu gdzie ja mieszkam,jest podobno ok.100MHz.Nie wiem jak u Pana.Z talerza wychodzi zwykle 70 Mhz.Na tuner do domu.Jak ma Pan stare nieprzestrojone radio ze starymUKF em to niech Pan spróbuje je podłączyć do talerza "satelitki".Jestem ciekaw,czy będzie cokolwiek.
    Tak samo,jakby podłączyć radio z nowym UKFem do kablówki.
    Najwyższa stacja jest ok.108MHz w radiu.Jeżeli u Pana kablówka
    jest np.na 119Mhz to radio tego już nie zlapie.Tyle mi sie wydaje można w
    domu bez niczego bez wiedzy i przyrządów spróbować.Oczywiście może Pan n.p.usłyszeć w jakimś miejscu tylko mocniejszy szum, ale to już będzie coś. Że tam coś jest,z talerza lub kablówki ze ściany.
    Ciekaw jestem,co Pan "wywalczy".Byłbym wdzięczny za odpowiedź.
    Szkoda że eksperci z Elektrody nic jeszcze Panu nie odpowiedzieli.
    Tylko ja prawie laik w tym temacie.
    Pozdrawiam,
    Jacek ESPEDWA
