is it possible to get internet using your sat dish??
No, not possible as internet reqauires two way communication (transmit and receive).
What are the dimentions of the Vast Decoder and the I D U unit please .
The dimensions are:
Sphere control box (IDU) - 263mm wide, 130mm (depth) and 45mm height
SatKing box (decoder) - 220mm (wide), 130mm (depth) and 47mm height
The above measurements exclude the connections on the back so allow an extra 40mm for depth.
Can you advise the approximate cost to install on top of Caravan please. Probabky worst case sinareo woukd be OK please. Thank you
Our installer up here in QLD charges $580 for installation on a standard van to one satellite decoder point. We can wire up for additional points as well for instance to outside the van. This would be additional to the $580.00 This price includes GST.
How do you tune the Sat Dish and Decoder for the first time?
The Sphere is automatic so you press the power on, press search and wait for about 4 minutes for the system to lock on to the satellite. You will have to register your smartcard for your VAST decoder at www.mysattv.com.au
I am wanting to buy a complete system to hand over to my caravan builder. Are there any other items needed other than the antenna and Vast set top box? Is there a choice of single channel or twin channel set top boxes in the Vast brand. I don't understand these things and need some guidance please.
Hi there Colin,
We can supply the Sphere system with a standard satellite decoder for watching only. We would supply the SatKing 800CA decoder for this purpose. If you required twin tuner with the ability to record a channel while watching another then we would supply the Altech DSR 4639 decoder. Both of these units are 12 volt.
You do only need the Sphere system with a decoder but decide which one suits you best.
Also, we're able to ship to your caravan manufacturer and offer them guidance during the installation if required.
