How To Connect Your Openview Decoder To Your TV

The OpenView connection process is easy and hassle free. If you already have a satellite dish in place and would like to install and activate your decoder, here is a step-by-step guide on how to do just that. To connect your decoder to the satellite dish, you will need to connect the LNB cable from your satellite dish to the LNB IN or DISH IN slot at the back of your decoder. There are three ways to connect your decoder to your TV:

You can connect with an RCA Cable, an AV Mini Jack or an HDMI Cable

RCA Cable

  • If you are using an RCA cable connect the cables to the back of your decoder – matching the colours of the connectors to the colours of the ports (red to red, white to white and yellow to yellow).
  • Then, connect the other end of the cable to your TV. Make sure you are plugging them into the ports that are marked INPUT. Again, match the colours of the connectors to the colour of the ports (red to red, white to white and yellow to yellow).
  • If your TV does not have coloured ports, then plug the connectors in accordingly: yellow into VIDEO IN, white into AUDIO IN (L) and red into AUDIO IN (R) – if available.

AV Mini Jack

  • If you are using an AV mini jack cable, plug the single jack into the back of your decoder. Then, connect the other end of the cable to your TV.
  • Make sure you are plugging them into the ports that are marked INPUT. Match the colours of the connectors to the colour of the ports (red to red, white to white and yellow to yellow).
  • If your TV does not have coloured ports, then plug the connectors in accordingly: yellow into VIDEO IN, white into AUDIO IN (L) and red into AUDIO IN (R) – if available.

HDMI

  • If you are using an HDMI cable, then plug it into the HDMI port on the back of your decoder and then plug the other end into an HDMI port on your TV.
  • You will then need to switch to the relevant HDMI source/input channel on your television.

To power your decoder, you will need to connect the power cable to the decoder and connect it to a power source. Your decoder should then switch on and start scanning. Once scanning is complete you will see channel 100. Your decoder is now ready to be activated.
