It is possible to install your own satellite equipment.

Eurostar is an FTA satellite receiver that is based out of Europe (as the title suggests). With the FTA receiver connected to any satellite dish, you are able to receive unscrambled programming not only from Europe, but from around the world. This is an exceptional option if you don't want to pay a monthly service required by most cable or satellite providers. Eurostar satellite receivers are not issued by a specific service company, however, so you do need to install the equipment yourself.


Step 1

Connect the coaxial cable running down from the satellite dish into the "In" port on your Eurostar satellite receiver. Tighten the cable onto the receiver by turning it clockwise. This ensures it does not disconnect while connected to the receiver.

Step 2

Insert the component video cables into the "Component Out" ports on the satellite receiver, then attach the opposite ends of the cables into the "Component In" ports on the television system.

Step 3

Connect the RCA audio cables into the "Audio Out" ports on the Eurostar satellite receiver, then plug the opposite ends of the cables into the "Audio In" ports on your television.


Step 4

Power on the Eurostar satellite receiver and the TV, then choose the "Input" option and select "Component Video." The satellite content now loads onto the television's screen.
