Originally the plan is like this:
Freeview Waiheke signal is not in use. 8 channels was modulated from satellite signal to analog, shared by 50 units. We are thinking of doing it the following way:
The possible advantage is that the new plan offers each unit flexibility of receiving all Freeview HD channels, instead of only 8, while each unit can choose to subscribe to Sky without a dish antenna installed on each house. We are going back this Thursday to test the possible Optus D1 signal in remote units. This is the first time we try to distribute satellite DVB-S signal directly to 50 units in RG6 cable network. The challenge is going to be finding all major splitters which are hidden some where scattered underground. Thursday we will have the results.
