Hi....

I've just got astro pple to install the byond decoder. According to the installer, this new decoder does not hv any output except component and HDMI. unlike d old decoder, they can hv another areal output. Where I used to run another line up to my bedroom as bedroom and living hall will be watching the same channel.

Any 1 watching 2 or 3 TV with byond decoder? Installer say it can only support 1? My fren was telling me to get d Coax Spilter 2-way satelite. before the astro cable goes into the decoder...spilt 1 out to my bedroom. Anyone has any solution for me, you guys out there already got a solution for this?

Thanx in advance

This been discussed extensively in the existing Astroi Byond thread.

U just need a RCA splitter (~RM1.50/pc X2 or 3) & a AV-RF converter to convert the RCA to RF (The common TV antenna cable). Can liao

For earlier astro decoder...not decoder is needed. Only RF cable only directly into TV.

Ya and thanks to Stimix on the recommendation. I did update the solution at the Astro Byond thread. May be let me elaborate more here.

Previous setup while using old Astro Decoder
Cabling: coaxial cable from living hall to bedroom
Connectivity: the above coaxial cable connect to the astro decoder coaxial output

New setup using Astro Byond setup box
Cabling: remain no change for your coaxial cable from living room to bedroom, but require additional RCA cable
Item require: AV transmitter
Connectivity:
RCA cable connect from setup box (Red/White/Yellow) > RCA input @ AV transmitter
Coaxial cable from bedroom connect to the AV transmitter coaxial output.

Thanx mlthum,

Now with your explanation I can understand better. Which means with this byond decoder all I need is a AV transmitter. This AV transmitter will transfer out via coaxial output. which works the same way like d old decoder.

byond decoder output via RCA to AV transmitter and AV transmitter coaxial output to RF cable to my bedroom.

Any recommendation, where I can get this AV transmitter? IT mall sell these ? Any brand particular you can recommend?.

Thanx...

yes RCA and component are able to provide the output even HDMI is connected. Which mean it can be 3 output at the same time.

if that was the case why would you even need a decoder to start with?
It is simply wrong to think you can take the signal direct from the dish and plug into a Tv and watch astro. it must pass thru a decoder.

we can change the astro channels via this thing. my oni grouse is tht i hv the wired, but the wirelss is lousy a bit.

mine controls the astro via a small thing put at the IR receiver on the astro decoded. 1 decoder in the hall tv and the other in the family living tv.

Hi mlthum,

I just got the dawa AV-RF transmitter.

I able to connect to the byond decoder....but I got a problem.

There is pic, but the picture got no colour and there is noise.....I tried all the connector available at back of byond decoder. Unable to solve this problem.

This is how I connect, byond RCA out to AV-RF converter in ...and converter RF out to my bedroom TV.

Anyone can comment?

u may bring ur tv to make a direct connect using RCA to TV RCA input see whether u got the same problem. If yes then proceed to contact Astro CS
else bring the transmitter back to the shop and ask for exchange may be the transmitter "koyak" that failed to transmit the signal.
for me the connectibity quite straigh forward,
Byond RCA out to AV Transmitter RCA in then AV transmitter TV out (coax) to bedroom TV in (coax) and do an auto tuning at the bedroom tv - DONE

After I replied you ...I go back n auto tunning the TV at last I got it. But the picture compare to earlier setting (not byond decoder) a bit jagger...on top of the image. Now currently using the stock yellow white red cable. Will change to RGB cable later tonite.

Which output you connected to the byond decoder? Y Pr Pb or the Video , L& R for audio?

Here is the picture of the AV-RF converter I got.

same like the old decoder i guess, but connect it to beyod's composite and L&R audio analog channels only -

the connection will be from beyond's composite yellow video, analog L & R audio into the AV transmitter input...but you will just get SD channels for the other tv...the HD channels you can't get...

was told that if use wireless av box to connect to another tv set, the signal wont be hd anymore as there will be inteference and lost of signal. means it will be the same as yr previous norman decoder.
in order to fully use the hd signal, a hdmi cable is a must!

Well, main TV use HDMI and bedroom TV use AV box. Yes, you cannot get HD through AV box, signal will downsample to SD and there might be interference depending on your setup. But that's the best one can come up with. Other way is to involve a few thousand ringgit in a HDMI splitter, a bunch of HDMI cables and repeaters, and wiring. Either that or a wireless HDMI transmitter and receiver kit which also costs a few thousand ringgit.

They will take back your SD decoder when you order Astro Byond. If you want to keep it, you must pay RM80. Even then they'll take away the smart card. Best you call Astro CS and see what you can do. Best way is to work out how to subscribe to supplementary line and then move the decoder to the sub line while putting the Byond as the new main line.

I dun quite understand your question. But for byond, generally the most accepted answer is connect LCD TV via HDMI so it gets HD quality image, and second TV (which downscale HD to SD) use RCA direct or convert to RF using a RM15-RM50 RCA-to-RF converter.

More exotic setup discussed in the past requires RM600++ component-to-SVideo converter (because b.yond has no S-Video connector) or if you want HD on both TVs, RM1000++ in HDMI splitter plus various concoctions of HDMI repeaters or HDMI to Ethernet converters, or an uber-expensive RM5000++ HDMI wireless kit.

You have 2nd option if you only use for 1 year or 2 biggrin.gif

Subscribe to Astro, I don't know which is true

1) Free installation Fee for Min. package RM 37.95, Min 24 Month's subscription periods.
2) RM50 Installation Fee for Min. package RM54.95, Min 12 Month's subscription periods.
3) RM80 Installation Fee for Min. package RM37.95, Min 12 Month's subscription periods.

or

1) RM30 Installation Fee for Min. package RM54.95, Min 24 Month's subscription periods.
2) RM80 Installation Fee for Min. package RM37.95, Min 24 Month's subscription periods.
3) RM199 Installation Fee for Min. package RM37.95, Min 12 Month's subscription periods.

Subscribe to byond = Free

You can watch different channel at 1 time, if astro still has 50% off monthly bill on 2nd decoder you can save summore hmm.gif

Tape the IR injector about 1" to 1.5" to the right of the LED display on the front. Works perfectly for me using the XTra Link 2.

Works perfectly well with the BYond decoder, except you need use an AV to RF converter. I use the Malaysian made AEM unit. It is cheap and the RF output quality is excellent. No image shearing, no distortion and colour is rich and vibrant.

If you are asking about the AV to RF converter, then it is RM38 here in Kota Kinabalu. Since it is Malaysian made, I bet it is quite a bit cheaper in Semananjung Malaysia.

No, you'll only get HD (1080i/720p) by using HDMI. composite/component will only output 576i but the latter will give better PQ

Most probably cannot, byond smart card tied with specific byond decoder. Even you use another byond decoder also cannot work.

When u subscribe to byond, keep your old dish & cable, return old decoder.
During balik kampung, bring your byond decoder, smart card & old dish, cable as well. Just install the dish & cable by yourself.
I did it twice successfully.
1. 1st when i subscribe to astro, i live in centralized dish apartment. So, installer just installed splitter & decoder. I insist to get the dish which they refuse to give firstly. Luckily, when i move to new house i need the dish. I install it by myself (yes, only me - drill the wall & so on). I manage to get signal strength 69 (almost same like in my previous apartment which is 68).
2. At my parent house when they move to new house, i get signal strength 71.

The key thing is:
- you need to believe in yourself biggrin.gif
- observe closely on existing angle dish (using normal compass will do, you'll notice it's actually facing West) & don't forget reading on adjustable angle (0-90 degree)
- During your dish adjustment, bring your tv as close as at the dish. So u can notice if u had adjust the angle properly. Old decoder is more user friendly actually during this process (you will hear beep beep sound).

If you still not sure, u still can pay astro installer (RM80-100) to install it for you. Of course u can't get real good signal strength with byond using old dish, but it still work. I don't have any special equipment, just compass only.
But don't forget to bring back your decoder & smart card after balik kampung. else, u won't watch astro at your home nod.gif

btw, this question is out of topic actually. tongue.gif

The new Byond Smartcard is "paired" with your decoder, which means you cannot even use it with another Byond decoder, let alone the older Astro decoder.

The other TV will also display the HD Channels, but if your TV is not HD than you will only see the programs according to what your TV is capable of. However I find that on the older CRT TV, the picture quality of the HD Channels is still superior to the ones from the SD Channels, and the sound output has a higher fidelity and clearer, definitely better.

Not true!

I have my Byond connected to one TV upstairs and another downstairs using the AEM AV to RF converter, at the same time I also have it connected to my 24inch PC monitor using the HDMI interface. The picture quality on the PC monitor is just incredible, wow!!

It is just a straight forward connection if your PC monitor has an HDMI interface (connector). I think most large screen PC monitor now uses the HDMI connection. My monitor is the HP w2408h. Plug one end of the HDMI cable to the Byond decoder and the other to your monitor. If your monitor has built-in speakers, you will even get the sound output through them since HDMI carries both video and audio.

Before installing Astro, I am using a RF connector to connect my TV upstairs and able to use the remote controller as well that comes with the device.

Now I have install the Astro Byond, does it mean I have to get the AM AV-RF convertor to use on the infra remote device together to reach the 2nd TV?

In fact the Installer have tested for me, it works but he ask to buy a booster to get a clearer picture for the 2nd TV upstairs which without that the pictures are noisy.

So he suggest using a booster which is cost me about RM200, so I put a hold on it.

Need some advice here....Thanks

Guys,

I'm using the China made AV-RF converter. The picture is good except that it is noisy when it comes to bright light scene. There made quite an annoying buzzing sound when it displays the scene. Is there any way to eliminate this noise? Should I use booster or change to a better AV-RF converter?

Thanks.

Another issue with AV-RF convertor, is the sound in MONO or STEREO?

I am currently using the existing old Astro decoder box RF to 2nd and 3rd TV. All sound is in MONO sad.gif

You will need to Extralink equipment.
Yesterday, I saw an wireless AV transmitter about RM320. Can use the composite output from Byond. Don't know how good is the transmission range though.

hmm.. got any photos ka?
How does that work, I wonder...

It seems kinda redundant to link 2 tvs in 2 different rooms with Astro when you probably need to walk out to the other room to change channels... without the need for 2 decoders (with cards)... anyone here solved this issue?

After reading the last few pages, I still don't really get what I should do.
Anyone kind enough to help me and summarize what I should do? icon_question.gif

My situation:

I will have 3 tvs at 3 different floors.

The first floor(living room) will have a 50+" tv(haven't bought it yet, waiting for the 3D series) for general use, most probably for watching Astro only.

The second floor(bedroom) will have a 32" tv, for Astro and watching normal dvd.

The third floor(living room with HT system) will have a projector and very large tv, for watching Blu-Ray HD movies, Astro, etc.

Which floor do I put the decoder at? Which floor will get HD or SD quality? I'm quite new to these cable and converter stuffs as well, can anyone summarize what do I need?

Thank you very much. notworthy.gif

Depends, the floor that u put the decoder definitely will get HD. I suggest third floor, since u have HT set on that floor. For other floors just use coaxial cable, since to use RCA and HDMI is quite impossible coz the length of the cable needed is very long.
U need AV to RF converter, AV Splitter and Coax Cable.

could anyone draw the diagram ... byond decoder split for 2 or 3 tv ... the connector used and else ..

Depends, what type of cable do u want to use? Coaxial, RCA or HDMI?
Each cable will display different quality of output.
Coaxial: Picture OK, but sometime got noise, depends on the quality of the RF converter and the length of the cable. Sound: Mono
RCA: Picture Better than Coaxial, Sound: Stereo
HDMI: HD ler...

Another issue with AV-RF convertor, is the sound in MONO or STEREO?

I am currently using the existing old Astro decoder box RF to 2nd and 3rd TV. All sound is in MONO sad.gif
*
RF always gives MONO output. RF cannot give stereo output, since RF only using single cable. It is no like HDMI cable. HDMI is optical fibre.

___________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________


My suggestion is, the easiest and the cheapest way is using coax cable. Most of the restaurants, shops eg nasi kandar use coaxial cable for their TVs (not all).
However if u still want to display HD on all of your TVs, it is quite expensive.. u need a HDMI splitter (RM400), HDMI cable (depends on the length, the normal length, which the one that astro gives cost about RM50-RM100. So do ur math..)

For wired/ RF cable transmission to 2nd/3rd TV of the Astro Byond, basically there are 3 choices in the market:
1) The Engel brand - DigiSender2 (Multiroom AudioVisual Transmitter or high pic & sound quality AV-RF Converter from Barcelona, Spain) and this is also the one that I'm using now. It cost less than RM200 (you can bargain though for lower price), I bought from the electronic shop in Jalan Pasar - I.C. Electronics Sdn Bhd, 82, Jalan Pasar, Pudu, KL. T: 92213725 / 92218175.

2) They also sell the Taiwan made "Universal...." at less than RM70, which previously my Astro Byond Installer want to sell to me at "RM200" - that means the Installer purposely want to make quick & easy money of RM130++ by just selling this simple gadget to customers who don't know about the market price of this things. Be Aware - to those who plan to install the new Astro Byond, just a small & sincere advise only.

3) They also sell the cheaper very low signal strength DAWA av-rf converter (about RM30 or less only) which CAN NOT support for longer distance, b'cos i had tried it before with my up-stair TV (i bought from ACE before RM32.90 & return already), the sound output signal too bad just can not support at all.

Have a nice day. May everyone have a peaceful mind, positive thinking & radiate the positive energy everyday, every time from your inner self.

It uses cat5e.. this is the highest and fastest rated cable..based on my knowledge on communication, cat6 is not rated yet, right?
but still doubt about the cable..since cat5/6/7 is not optical fibre cable..but the cable has high data rate transmission thought..

just for sharing.

I noticed that AEM unit need cable to connect to 2nd TV.
Saw it selling at RM69 at ACE hardware. So i decided to go for wireless.

i just bought wireless AV sender at RM175, won from lelong bidding.

My Astro byond now connect to 1st LCD TV using HDMI.
red/white/yellow from astro byond connect to wireless transmitter.

2nd LCD TV connect to wireless receiver. Ready to watch. icon_rolleyes.gif

The only thing i still not able how to change channel at 2nd TV because the IR at both side not working. sad.gif

also found that the wireless receiver cannot put near to WIFI modem, it will make noice to the TV.

I don't mind the 2nd TV watch in normal video input, even not the HD.

this item can go for 100 meters.

i heard that these wireless av trasmitter is using 2.4ghz.. same as wifi... hence... ur wifi may get some kind of "cross signal" and may not be able to transmit data to/from ur laptop at full speed/capacity... dunno true or not..

Try changing the Wi-Fi channel. For internet wi-fi it should be using channel 6 or 11. Look at the manufacturer manual (if any). If you cannot change the one on the aem link, change the one on your wi-fi router. I read somewhere what channels are for specific use to avoid interferences.

Btw, I also using AEM (wired) with my current astro. will get b.yond sometime next week, but wonder if the current remote will work with AEM considering the main tv will be using b.yond remote. Anyone done this yet can share? Or do I have to get another b.yond remote (which is useless considering the second tv will not be using HDMI - no HD).

Hi mlthum,

I just got the dawa AV-RF transmitter.

I able to connect to the byond decoder....but I got a problem.

There is pic, but the picture got no colour and there is noise.....I tried all the connector available at back of byond decoder. Unable to solve this problem.

This is how I connect, byond RCA out to AV-RF converter in ...and converter RF out to my bedroom TV.

Anyone can comment?
*
I am having this same problem. I just bought a AEM 8002 (AV to RF Converter) which uses PAL / BG at Channel 3>
The AV-RF is not faulty cos I've tested it with a DVD Player and works fine. Only when I connect it to Astro B.yond decoder then this happens. My connection is

B.YOND --> RCA Out AV (Red,White Yellow) -----> AEM8002 ------> RF Out ----->TV.
I don' think its the cable or anything cos it works fine with the DVD.
Auto tuning the TV also did not solve the problem.

My signal is ok at 255 so it should not be a prob.

Can some one help me out?

I am using the "AEM AV to RF Converter". Works really well. Picture Quality and colour are very good.


My AEM AV to RF converter doesn't work with my b.yond but works well with my dvd player so I can't return it to the shop and say that its faulty.

I have my Byond connected to one TV upstairs and another downstairs using the AEM AV to RF converter, at the same time I also have it connected to my 24inch PC monitor using the HDMI interface. The picture quality on the PC monitor is just incredible, wow!!

This thing doesn't seem to work with me cos I don't get clear picture at all and very noisy audio. The AEM AV to RF is on Channel 3 right? Btw, do I need to attached a booster to the AEM thing to get clearer signal?

I have a WIRELESS FULL HD TRANSMITTER running at 5GHZ , so it wont interfere with all the normal IT appliances. I use to broadcast FULL HD quality from my living hall to my bedroom upstairs, and it work just great. HD quality. It has HDMI input at the sender and receiver. COOL!

Is not in the market yet, i have the priviledge to do the testing for my company. What i can say, is it going to be launch sometime this year, around april time frame, i can take some photo to show you, but i am not allow to mention the brand yet. Quite expensive if you compare it with normal analog AV transmitter. It can transmit more than one device means you can have your byond box, blue ray dvd player connect to it (2x HDMI), then it has also one RCA input. so all together 3 devices, n yes...it comes with 3 IR flasher at sender end. So you can control all 3 devices.

limshihao,
how expensive is "quite expensive compared to normal analog AV"? i know the normal analog wireless one would cost from RM200++... any hint or ballpark figures perhaps? actually i'm in the process of buying a house... would be renovating the house in april/ may... already thinking of laying CAT6.. get the HDMI to CAT6 converter... i've a rough idea on the cost... so if this solution could be around the same cost.. i'd definitely use this wireless thingie as it would be easily moved anywhere... but if too much different... wired may still be preferred options as to in would guarantee stability (i suppose?)...

some pictures would be nice too... i know u can't mention the brand name... but if i guess correctly.. can u nod? eheheheh... is the name sounds like a tall animal with long neck? ehehehe....

transmitting distance is 40m, however is depending on walls and other obstacles. As you might have known, the higher frequency, the lesser the transmitting signal can penetrate walls and other obstacle. I tested with Bluray, PS3, Astro (normal box), Astro (byond Box)...it works just fine, and the beautiful part is no interference from your other IT/Electronic gadgets like cordless phone, WIFI router ++.

I will post some photo early next week.

Yeah, it's still copper but different impedance. Cat5 is twisted pair cable, impedance is about 120 ohm. Coax is 75 ohm, with 1 core in the middle & the other as a skin. Wonder why you get perfect signal.

Yeah, it's still copper but different impedance. Cat5 is twisted pair cable, impedance is about 120 ohm. Coax is 75 ohm, with 1 core in the middle & the other as a skin. Wonder why you get perfect signal.

Exactly my point... but hey... if it's working.. i won't complaint... eheheh... i've never done it myself.. but if it works.. i'll do it also... of course... i'll try on small scale first... thumbup.gif

this really makes me wonder if all the theories i read all this while are 100% true or not... not just on this thing.. but others as well... ehehehe...

This is how my setup is

TV to Astro --> HDMI

TV to Media Center PC --> Yellow/Red/White Cable (good ol RCA Cables)

I can still do two outputs , its not a problem at all. I can record shows this way on my Media centre pc which is connected to my HDTV via HDMI ! .

Guys,

I am a lil bit blur after reading the whole post of this thread. I am not so sure about it. sad.gif.

I am not sure what is RCA, RF, coax cable. tongue.gif. If I am right, RCA is a type of signal, carried by composite cable (the one with 3 color cable - yellow, red and white/black). RF is the old signal type where we use it back in antenna era last time. Coax cable is the hardware who carries RF signal. Is all right. smile.gif.

Ok if all are right, Let me explain about my current setup with old astro decoder:
- 2 TV - one in living room and another in bedroom. They are just 10-20 meters away.
- TV in Living room is using 3 cable - yellow, red, black.
- TV in bedroom is using old time antenna cable - I assume is it coax cable (if my above explanation is right).
- Normally change channel at living room. Not a real problem because it just sit right in front my bedroom door.

So, here comes the questions. biggrin.gif.

I want to use astro byond with 2 TVs.I dont mind 1 with HD and another is SD. so, what I can think of now is:

- HDMI connects my TV and astro decoder. Right?
- to make my bedroom TV works, I have to get a AV-RF converter - to convert 3 color cable (or known as RCA signal) to RF signal. Then I am set to go.

am I right guys?? if that is right, I want to add a value to my TV in bedroom - where I can change channel without going to living room. biggrin.gif. what do I need? I read in previous post, u guys are talking about infra red, bla bla but I have no idea. anyone here care to explain?

I am really appreciate your help. Thanks in advance. smile.gif.

Get a HDMI splitter 1 in 4 out and wiring HDMI cable to all the tvs would solve your problem. Cost wise it would cost quite a bit.

If you are asking about the AV to RF converter, then it is RM38 here in Kota Kinabalu. Since it is Malaysian made, I bet it is quite a bit cheaper in Semananjung Malaysia.

Guys, I have learnt much from you all in this thread.
And the knowledge shared has enabled me to work on splitting my Byond to 2 tv's.
However, I am encountering problems, hope can get help here...

Problem: Just got a AV RF Converter (Yagitenna YT5050).
Connect RCA from Byond to Converter, then connect Coax from RF out port at converter to TV in bedroom.

Result: No audio and picture with small amount of noise.

Have tried direct RCA to bedroom TV (by moving the entire LCD down sweat.gif ), and that works - so should not be an issue with Byond box.
Have changed RCA cables, same results - so should not be the RCA cable issue.

Could it be the converter? I just bought it today and will be trying to do an exchange tomorrow.

Another question:
Saw an Astro Splitter at the hardware shop. Can this work with Byond?
Meaning the main cable from dish go to this Astro splitter, and split it to my Byond decoder and the other one go to my bedroom tv... will this method work?

Thanks a million.

Hello all,

Please bear with me (I hear a collective groan! smile.gif), but I sincerely honestly need advice.

Current Astro set-up:

One decoder with 2 tvs, one in living room, the other in bedroom. Wiring all concealed in roofs and between floors (I think!) and I use IR transmitter to change channels in bedroom. Additional decoder for supplementary package in in-laws room.

Question: I would like to run byond the same way. In-laws will stay put on SD. Will the cables run in similar fashion?

A million thanks in advance, and if this has been asked a gazillion times, a million apologies as well...smile.gif)

Did you connect audio cable (red/white RCA) to your AV to RF Converter?
Noise might be caused by long cable or interference with other device.

This splitter works if you have 2 decoder but need to use 1 dish only, but it won't work with byond.

If I understand correctly, your situation is like this.
1 dish, split into 2 decoder - 1 for you, another 1 for your in-laws.
Your decoder split into 2 TVs (using built-in RF converter or external converter?)

For splitting display, you can use current set up but need additional AV to RF converter with IR transmitter (but I think you have it now because you can use IR transmitter function).

The other thing since you have 2 decoder in your house, you need to run another cable from dish to byond decoder. You need to tell Astro about this when you subscribing to byond, they will install LNB with 2 output.

Guys.. Got 1 prob.. I just bought wireless transmitter connecting 2 tv using byond.. Seems I can't change the channel from the receiver end.. I've tried different position of the IR from the decoder but still cannot..

Pls advise


Added on June 20, 2010, 6:59 pmHah.. I know what's the problem.. Seems that my mastro remote can't change the channel.. But it works on my byond remote..

Is the mastro remote faulty or the remote can't be used for byond?

Where can I get byond remote?

Tq

Hi

need some advise/comment from you guys on the following:

Equipment Used:
1. Astro Beyond
2. AEM8002 AV to RF Convertor

Setup:
I. Sony DVD Player OUTPUT to Convertor using {Audio LR (Red&White) + Video (Yellow)}, Convertor OUTPUT to TV using {Coaxial} ==> Video & Sound OK
II. Astro Beyond OUTPUT to Convertor using {Audio LR (Red&White) + Video (Yellow)}, Convertor OUTPUT to TV using {Coaxial} ==> Video - colour washout & Sound - noisy
III. Astro Beyond OUTPUT to TV using {Audio LR (Red&White) + Video (Yellow)} ==> Video & Sound - OK
IV. Astro Beyond OUTPUT to TV(1) using {Audio LR (Red&White) + Video (Yellow)}/{HDMI}, TV1 OUTPUT to Convertor using {Audio LR (Red&White) + Video (Yellow)}, Convertor OUTPUT to TV2 using {Coaxial} ==> Video - No picture & Sound - OK
V. DVD Player OUTPUT to TV(1) using {Audio LR (Red&White) + Video (Yellow)}/{HDMI}, TV1 OUTPUT to Convertor using {Audio LR (Red&White) + Video (Yellow)}, Convertor OUTPUT to TV2 using {Coaxial} ==> Video & Sound - OK


from the above, i can conclude that:
1. From SETUP I, convertor is working
2. From SETUP III, Astro Decoder {Audio LR (Red&White) + Video (Yellow)} output is working

So is it possible that the convertor not compatible with the Astro Beyond signal?? Any idea??

TQ

You might need to adjust the infrared sensor to the correct spot. It just a bit right after the channel display on the decoder..

I'm using the China made AV-RF converter. The picture is good except that it is noisy when it comes to bright light scene. There made quite an annoying buzzing sound when it displays the scene. Is there any way to eliminate this noise? Should I use booster or change to a better AV-RF converter?

Thanks.

How about running a long RCA (red, yellow, white) cable from living room byond box to the bedroom tv upstairs? Not sure maybe 10m. PQ should still be ok right? Better than RF?

I've actually tried using an AV-RF converter (because I have existing RF wiring for my old Astro setup), but the signal was totally unwatchable. Ended up returning the damn unit!

So that's why considering connecting the RCA output directly to the bedroom via a long cable.

Anyone tried this before? Thanks

Get a HDMI splitter 1 in 4 out and wiring HDMI cable to all the tvs would solve your problem. Cost wise it would cost quite a bit.

Agree ! for HD video, wiring HDMI is the best solution if you want to keep the High Definition video.
Astro byond is broadcast in High Definition (1920 x 1080 screen resolution).
If you use a AV-RF convertor, am wondering whether that AV-RF convertor able to handle the 1920 x 1080 screen resolution.
Even if the AV-RF convertor able to handle the 1920 x 1080 screen resolution, your TV also need a HD receiver/tuner.

I've just installed Byond.
From Byond to Plasma Tv - Hdmi Cable.
RCA Cables from byond-- connect to Universal (taiwan) AV Rf convertor.
Convertor to coaxil Cable to 2tv.
2nd tv picture very clear, sound excellent but when I switch to HD channels, HBO HD, etc, 2nd tv upstairs has no sound.
I can only get sound with the normal channels.
Any suggestions to get sound on 2nd tv while watching hd channels?

Any suggestions on how to record astro byond HD content without using the PVR

Basically the flow is :

Byond decoder > Splitter

1. one for HDTV
2. one for pc card that have HDMI input for recording purpose.

is this possible ?

hello,

i am using the AEM xtra link 2 to switch astro channel. the decorder located on the 1st floor and another tv is at the groudn floor.

i found out that last time when using normal astro(not beyond), i can change the channel from the sofa(around 5 metres distance) but after using astro beyond, i have to bring the remote very close the to AEM xtra link 2 box, very close like 1 meter then i can change the channel.

anythong wrong with the AEM xtra link 2 or it behave that way woth beyond?

hi,
i currently have 1 LCD tv connected to my astro byond decoder which is in d bedroom while the 2nd decoder/splitter/whatever u call it is in the living room. I recently bought a new Plasma tv and left it in the Living room.
I managed to tune in to Astro n all but, the quality for d HD channels is disappointing sad.gif
is there anyway to make both run in HD quality?
ive read from earlier post abt HDMI splitter. could you please tell me more about this?

hello everyone, sorry i tried reading some posts here but still a bit clueless.

wanted to ask how do i go about connecting astro beyond decoder to 2 tvs.
the situation is like this
-wall socket output for centralised dish in apartment
= what cable do i use for this to connect to astro beyond decoder?
- then from astro decoder i assume use RCA cable (what is this) and connect to AV Transmitter (is it same with AV to RF converter?) input
- from the AV Transmitter output, i use coaxial cable RG6 to connect to 2nd tv in bedroom?
- i may want to install the box thing that i can switch the channels from my bedroom, what is this called? is it the same as AEM Xtra Link2? so the coaxial cable connect to this first and then another cable to 2nd tv?

i am planning to get this done first so i can lay the cables first and get other work done since i just subscribed to astro and may take a month before they install. so if i do it sendiri can get it up and running easily when they bring the decoder. this way i can plant the wires/cables first. bear in mind i am placing the tv on the opposite side of the wall socket so i need to find a long cable that connects from the wall socket to astro beyond decoder. just in case its different from the rg6 coaxial cable.
assuming im using HDMI cable to connect to living room tv (even though still SD quality), what other cables and other equipment do i need as above? and final question would be the pricing and where can i find them?

help will be very very much appreciated.

Thanks in advance sifus

i read that wireless technology can actually lead to cancer. its a type of radiation. RF is radiation. supposedly it screws with your dna.
not really sure but cables might be safer... its messier no doubt but potentially safer

You have to manually go to byond sound setting and change from dolby 5.1 to stereo, everytime you change to HD channel. This method is only good if both of your TVs are using Tv speakers for stereo sound.

But If you have dedicated AVR and surround sound system (5.1/7.1) then this will be troublesome, unless you u only want stereo sound from your HD channel instead of 5.1.

I believe the HD channel is using diff freq from the SD channel. So I guess when you switch to HD chan, there is a control signal sent to the LNB to change the freq and hence your old decoder no longer receives SD signal.

This is why for Byond PVR you need to install two RF cables from the dish with 2 LNB so that you can have both HD and SD channels active simultaneously..

I see that some members are asking for av-rf converter for Byond. I have tried 3 av-rf converter/modulator, only PX Universal RF modulator works. So, for the benefit of other forummers, the below av-rf converters do not work with Byond.

Do not work
1. Yagitenna YT5050
2. China brand converter with Byond wording on the set. Green packaging.

Work
1. PX Universal RF modulator (user MyDevil)
2. Newpro NP2020 AV to RF converter (user kimyee73)
3. dawa AV-RF transmitter (user Viper1912)
4. Engel brand - DigiSender2 (user noblelife)

Feel free to add in the list.

1 dish can support multiple decoder.. but you got to pay separate subscription for each decoder..
or just use 1 smart card, and you swap the smart card from one decoder to another..

Nope. Byond smartcard was paired to the Byond decoder. It can't be swapped with others Byond decoder unless it's done by Astro. Even if they do it, the pairing with 1st decoder will be void. Refer Byond's thread..

behind your astro byond should have (CVBS) video, same yellow, red and white cable. Plug in and connect to your AV/RF convertor and you could play ....


Added on October 8, 2011, 11:10 pmhi guys, I just bought EKK AV-RF convertor at Jln Pasar for RM39 and I could connect V,L,R to AV convertor and 2nd, 3rd TV can work well with audio on.

However, I connect HDMI to my primary tv and no display& audio. I wondering what happen then use component video...pic ok but no sound. Anybody know what's going on?

If u want to connect thru component video, you can buy 2pcs RCA 1 to 2 (like picture below) , connect component video to 1st TV, then the 2pcs of RCA 1 to 2 connect on your decoder Audio L and Audio R (to split the audio to 2 output for each channel), then u can connect 1 set of ur Audio L+R to ur 1st TV and another set of Audio L+R to ur AV converter.
This is what I do on others satellite decoder but i never try Astro Beyond. Perhaps Astro Beyond will Lock others signal out when you connect HDMI output.... same thing happen on some Dreambox decoder..... Hope this info could help....

Your current RF cable from your TV/VCR output have to mod to F-connector (like Astro sat cable one) then connect to your openbox s10 rear Ant/VCR output will do.

Yeah, i am using the Pakite 2.4hgz wireless solution, so far its pretty good, purchase from KABA. Mine is double storey house...Decoder downstairs, 2nd TV upstairs.

However, its not 100% trouble free, just some minor annoyances:
i) Occasional interference to the signal when something/someone is around the receiver..can't pinpoint why..
ii) If have many electrical source/wirings close to the receiver, and power on at the same time...might occur static interference too.
iii) The infrared transmitter has to be precisely located at the Astro beyond, for the channel changing feature to work flawlessly. I just stick and face it to the Beyond decoder..this may require trial and error. This maybe the most frustrating part to get it right..so, be forewarned.
iv) Reports of possible interference with WiFi, but i am not sure about this. So far, those normal modem like p1 seems no conflict with it.

Good things about it:

i) Probably the simplest and less messy solution.
ii) No HD quality pictures, but Astro HD channel available..quality wise, its SD quality. HD channel's SD quality is slightly better than normal SD channel. But i prefer to watch it on SD channels becoz it's scaling is normally full screen, but under if HD channel...it will project the movies with top & bottom black bar.

So, hope some info on the my experiences helps...

To me, its worth it, not having to pay extra monthly fees to Astro...albeit have to watch same channels for two TVs.
Actually the quality of pictures surpassed my expectations... My personal opinion is if the second tv is smallish, like 32/37/40 inch LED/LCD...then the picture quality should acceptable...

I am currently using the Wireless AV transmitter to change channel only (for the 2nd tv)... this is because the quality is really not that good to transmit video.... so i use a very long RCA cable to transmit video and sound instead....
behind the astro beyond decoder, there are RCA and component, so the main TV I use component, then the 2nd tv use RCA....... 1 main problem is the splitter that I use cannot fit in to split the audio (red and white)... so what happen is 1 tv use red and 1 tv use white sad.gif... too bad astro won't open the HDMI port if u dont subscribe HD channel.....

just for sharing.

I noticed that AEM unit need cable to connect to 2nd TV.
Saw it selling at RM69 at ACE hardware. So i decided to go for wireless.

i just bought wireless AV sender at RM175, won from lelong bidding.

My Astro byond now connect to 1st LCD TV using HDMI.
red/white/yellow from astro byond connect to wireless transmitter.

2nd LCD TV connect to wireless receiver. Ready to watch.  icon_rolleyes.gif

The only thing i still not able how to change channel at 2nd TV because the IR at both side not working. sad.gif

also found that the wireless receiver cannot put near to WIFI modem, it will make noice to the TV.

I don't mind the 2nd TV watch in normal video input, even not the HD.

this item can go for 100 meters.

Hi guys,

Need help.... I have 2 different astro decoders at home, one byond and a normal sd decoder (2 saperate Smart cards). Currently i am using the cheap coax splitter to split the signal between the two decoders. Everything works well until i switch to HD channels. I wont be able to watch anything on the other decoder and the sat signal shows zero. Anyone encounter this? How do i overcome this? Will signal booster help in this situation? Many thanx

same like the old decoder i guess, but connect it to beyod's composite and L&R audio analog channels only -

the connection will be from beyond's composite yellow video, analog L & R audio into the AV transmitter input...but you will just get SD channels for the other tv...the HD channels you can't get...

Sorry to bump this old thread.

Since my house now in the midst of renovation, I hope to have a solution now.

I plan to install A.Beyond decoder link to my LED TV at living hall. If I would like to watch astro at my first floor family hall, how can it be done?

Can I maintain 1 dish but 2 decoder watching the same channel? Which both also can watch HD.
