i', moving into a rented flat on friday,
it has a wall plate with 2 x analouge antenna connections... usual jobbies,
one for radio, other for tv,
above them are 2 x F type screw in connectors, ones labled sat, the other is
'return feed' could be 'return loop' but has the word return in it.
The landlord dosent know much about the system, he just rents the place out,
i can't seem to find who built the flats, even tho they were built in 2005,
but i doubt they'd be that helpfull anyway.
I know i should ask another resident, but i'm not there at the moment, and
am trying to figure out what i can get for tv, broadband and phone.
with the connectors being F type, as in sattelite type connectors, could it
be there's a communal sat dish on the roof? (never looked)
i'm wondering about the return connection, does that need a special box to
use the communal system? or could that be for something like satelite
or could it be a cable tv system? i've never had cable before, so have no
idea what the connectors are like,
virgin media are looking into the posibility of me getting their services
there, but can't comment if anyone else in the block has it to give me an
indication if the communal system is cable or not.
i could take my sky box from the camper and try it at the flat next week,
but i am worried it may blow it if it's for a cable box.
Any ideas of the type of system usually installed in blocks of flats?
