This is a discussion on Use Telewest Wall Box/Outlet for a Satellite feed within the Satellite Installation forums, part of the Satellite category; Hi there, i have got a cable going from the omnibox to ...
i have got a cable going from the omnibox to the master bedroom upstairs which has been in use for over 5 years, but now i wish to install a freesat box in the room, can i get a satellite feed and join it the existing coax (cable feed) and use the freesat box with no problems.
how ever with some research i have found out that there is a filter inside the wall box, i was told that i need to remove that in order the box to receive any signal. the wall box has a system zero tamper proof screws so i cant remove it, any force removal of the box can result in virgin media filing a criminal damage.
i have tried in connecting a satellite feed to the cable, i used an old sky pace box and i wasn't receiving any signal. ive noticed that inside the omnibox the cable was just hanging and not connected to anything, and what appears as rust in the f connector.
so the question:
can i get a satellite feed and join it the existing coax (cable feed) and use the freesat box with no problems.
