The TravelSat-V2 Portable PayTV DELUXE Satellite Kit contains absolutely everything you will need to enjoy FOXTEL or AUSTAR whilst on the road (using your own decoder).
BEWARE - There are cheaper similar kits to this on the market but they do not contain the same accessories included in this kit. Make sure you compare apples with apples. If you are on a tighter budget consider our TraveSat-V2 Portable PayTV LITE Satellite Kit
PAY TV ON THE ROAD - YES!!
We all like to travel as far as we can from home to be away from it all. To enjoy everything that Australia offers. The great outdoors is simply the best.
For those of you spending a lot of time on the road, who like to catch up with the odd show now and then, especially when the dark nights come early, it's nice to have access to TV just for an hour or two.
If you already subscribe to Pay TV then why not bring your decoder along and access all of your favourite channels like Discovery, BBC World News and National Geographic while on your camping trip?
WHAT'S IN THIS KIT?
The TravelSat-V2 Portable PayTV Satellite Kit is a complete system that, when connected to your PayTV decoder such as Foxtel or Austar, will enable you to access all of the channels you subscribe to at home, while on the road. It's that simple.
Providing your pay TV service is via satellite at home then it'll work perfectly virtually everywhere in Australia (will not work with cable decoders).
THE NEW IMPROVED MINIMAX DISH (V2)
Our new TravelSat-V2 dish is now offered with this system. Featuring rolled edge reflector of dimensions 75cm x 83cm, it'll work everywhere in Australia.
It packs down easily to a flat pack and folds neatly away into its included padded carry bag.
Folding LNB arm on the front makes setup time very quick.
As you travel East or West, North or South, you'll need to adjust the elevation of the dish and we can supply a comprehensive manual that provides this information. Adjusting the elevation of the TravelSat-V2 dish is easy.
WHAT IS INCLUDED?
TWIN OUTPUT LNB
The included LNB (amplifier on the front of the dish) is compatible with Austar and Foxtel and has a twin cable wired from the dish. This is suitable for all standard pay TV boxes, MyStar and Foxtel IQ.
SATELLITE METER - SatKing 3200 Handheld Meter
The SatKing SK-3200 is digital satellite Finder specially designed for VAST satellite TV. Being MPEG 4 the unit has been pre-programmed with the VAST paraFinders pre-set making the Finder very easy to use. If the other Finders you find just say digital they are not MPEG4 so they will not last. Simply plug the unit in to the dish and use the signal level bars to align you dish and once the level bars go green and the signal beeper is sounding the dish is aligned correctly and you are on the correct satellite. Then plug the antenna cable into your vast receiver or Foxtel STB and it will scan the channels in for you. The unit has a built in high power battery so the unit does not need to be connected to the VAST receiver to be used. Unlike many other lower priced Finders on the market this Finder you can actually receive VAST transponders. Many other mid lower cost Finders you are actually just receive the signal from the MPEG2 format and this could end anytime rendering your Finder useless. Special Note: All VAST services are MPEG4, there are no VAST MPEG2 services. If you have Foxtel and think this Finder sounds perfect for you well it is, you can simply align your dish on the VAST settings or simply select TP 3 in the sat setting menu and the unit will receive the actual Foxtel signal.
- a short twin cable for the dish to connect to the meter.
- twin 10m cable from the dish to the caravan wall.
- twin internal 1m cable from the inside wall to the decoder.
A basic compass can be supplied with our system - choose from the options. You don't need to be a scout’s captain to align a dish. The compass is used as a reference to North. When you read through our instruction manual, you'll notice that the direction charts relate to North.
You'll need a way to connect that external coaxial cable in through your van wall. We supply our EziPlate weatherproof wall fitting that is easy and neat to install. The EziPlate can adjust to wall thicknesses up to 35mm and is a direct, no loss connection from outside to in. You may already have something similar but unless it is a direct connection from outside to in with no joins or splitter in between then it will not work.
