What to Expect

Santos-de Santos, we supply and install Satellite TV and Audio/Video systems. Your local Audio/Video specialist based in Whitianga. I can help with Satellite TV and Audio/Video installations, service, trouble calls, and Freeview. Former Sky certified technician.
Building or doing alterations? Be well informed about the 'Do's and Don'ts.' Get the information you need to insure your audio/video system is properly installed and performs to your requirements and expectations. Feel free to have your contractor/tradesman contact me.

whitianga Satellite TV and Audio/Video systems Services

If you are having trouble or need any advise on audio/video and home theatre systems please give me a call. Being well informed will enable you to ask the right questions and make the right decisions. All to often I'm called in after the fact. I would welcome your business, but would rather provide free information so you avoid unnecessary costs and headaches. Consultations are provided at no cost.

TV Reception signal & Satellite Dishes

TV reception in the areas serviced is only available by means of an installed Satellite Dish, and the use of a Sky TV or Freeview set top box (decoder). However, there are now two types of TV's with built-in Freeview. If your TV has an aerial connection with a push-in fitting, it will only get reception by means of UHF Terrestrial broadcast, which is not available in this service area. In which case, a set top box will be required.
However, if your TV has an aerial connection with a threaded (screw-on) fitting, it is equipped with a digital tuner and can be connected directly to your Satellite Dish cable. Just follow the manufacture instructions for tuning, or call me for assistance.

Getting 'No Signal',  'Rain Fade' or 'Atmospheric Conditions' on a perfectly clear blue sky day? Please call for solutions. In most cases the problem can be sorted by performing a few simple steps. Please, first take notice of the receiver/LNB at the end of the arm on your satellite dish. The white piece facing the dish will be either round or oval. This will help to determine the proper settings.

Services include new construction pre-wires, simplification of difficult to use systems, TV swaps, installation of additional TV connections, wall mounting TV's, installation and connection of Smart TV's, Sound Bars, BlueRay Players and Home Theatre Systems.

Happy viewing...
