Smart TV sets itself apart from other pay TV providers by offering a unique Digital Terrestrial platform that eliminates the need for a satellite dish to receive broadcast signals. With Smart TV, customers can enjoy their favorite channels without the hassle of installing a dish, as the Terrestrial Digital Broadcasting system relies on the customer being within its spectrum to receive clear digital signals.

To set up Smart TV, you will need the following installation equipment: a digital receiver/decoder, a remote control unit with two AAA batteries (1.5V each), a Yellow, Red, and White RCA cable, a power cable connector, an AC adaptor with a British Standard power plug, and a user manual to guide you through the process.

Connecting the Smart TV decoder to the aerial is straightforward. Simply attach a UHF aerial cable to the RF IN port located at the back of the decoder. For optimal signal reception, position the UHF antenna at a higher point and direct it towards a digital TV transmitter. In Kenya, currently only Nairobi has a Smart TV transmitter. The user manual provides further guidance on displaying a reception signal meter to help determine the best antenna location for optimal signal strength.

Next, let's connect the Smart TV decoder to your television set. There are two options for connection:

  • Connecting with RCA cable:

Take the red, yellow, and white RCA ports on the back of the Smart TV decoder.
Connect the Audio Left (white) and Right (red) cables as well as the Video (yellow) cable.
Match the colors of the RCA cables to the corresponding input ports on your TV.
  • Connecting with SCART cable:

Plug one end of the SCART cable into the TV SCART connector on the back of the receiver.
Connect the other end of the SCART cable to the SCART connector on your TV set.
By following these simple steps, you can easily set up your Smart TV and enjoy a wide range of channels without the need for a satellite dish. Embrace the convenience and versatility of Smart TV's Digital Terrestrial platform for your broadcasting needs.
