So many users of single cable or satellite TV decoders like the DStv, MyTV or Startimes etc who wish to connect many TVs have been wondering how possible it could be to change the channels they view from the extra Televisions. Well, it is very possible and easy. This post will explain in most simple terms how you can change or control the TV channels you view from the other extra TVs connected to your single satellite, terrestrial or cable TV decoder.

Virtually all types of TV signal decoders can be employed in the splitting of signals to view on multiple TVs. This is because virtually all decoders have the RF-OUT port functionality. This port allows for TV signals from such decoding device to be onwardly transmitted to any other connected output screen device like the TV. Some advanced decoders like what we have in the DStv Explora has some HDMI as well as the SCART port technology which makes connections to more complex devices like the computer, projectors etc possible.

The device that makes this possible is known as the Remote Blaster. This is a hi-tech device which recives signal commands from a decoder remote control and transmits same to the primary TV where the decoder is located. for instance, if your satellite decoder is situated in the living room with its primary TV, while you are watching programs from an extra TV in your bedroom linked to the same decodrer by a remote blaster/wire arrangement. The remote blasting device shall be positioned in your bedroom so as to receive commands and transmit same to the central control decoder. This way, you could change channels from the comfort of wherever the remote blaster is kept.

FEATURES OF THE REMOTE BLASTER AND HOW TO CONNECT IT

The remote blaster has a ball-shaped signal receptor, an antenna like protrusion housed in a box enclosing the intergrated circuit system. This device works on the Infra Red reception technology, the same technology that enables remote controls to work on our TVs. The wire INPUT end of the remote blaster is usually connected to the RF-IN port of your satellite decoder while the device end is kept where you may change your TV channels from - usually in another room.
It is important to the modify the settings of your satellite TV decoder to recognize the remote blasting device attached to it. This is done through the TV INSTALLATIONS or RF or REMOTE CONTROL sub-sections of the SETTINGS  menu. This may however vary depending on the particular type of satellite, terrestrial or cable TV decoder you are using. But for users of the DStv, it is very straightforward and simple.
Following the laid down procedures above will ensure a successful installation of your Remote Blaster and hence your ability to change channels when multiple TVs are connected to one decoder. meanwhile, the remote blaster device can be purchased from the open market especially where cable and satellite TV decoders and accessories are sold.
