ADVANTAGES of Combo Box

  • The Edision combo box is PVR ready
    • Note: Need to add an external hard drive or memory stick for recording
  • The Optimuss Underline 3 in 1 is made by Edision, who have a reputation for building premium quality combo boxes
  • The combo box is both a HD satellite receiver & HD digital terrestrial receiver in a single unit
  • Supports both standard & high definition transmissions
  • It has a DVB-T2 tuner so is suitable for Saorview and Freeview HD channels
  • The Edision Optimuss Underline 3 in 1 combo receiver is extremely competitively priced
  • It futures proofs your investment by meeting all the latest HD standards

  • The Optimuss Underline 3 in 1 is connectable to the internet
  • It comes with a 3 pin UK & Ireland plug unlike many competitor combo boxes

DISADVANTAGES of Combo Box

  • Does not support MHEG5 which will mean no teletext on HD terrestrial channels
  • More expensive than either a HD Satellite Receiver or a stand alone Digital Terrestrial Receiver but cheaper than getting them seperately
  • It does not have an RF out ie. it is not possible to run the picture to an additional room unless you use either an external Modulator or a TRI-Link (allows you to operate combo box with a sky eye from another room)
  • Note: You may need to add in an RCA to scart adaptor if using either external modulator or Trilink with the Optimuss Underline 3 in 1 combo box
  • As the Optimuss Underline 3 in 1 does not have a scart output, an RCA to scart adaptor could be used to convert the RCA output to scart input on TV if you so desire. See associated products for RCA to scart adapter
  • No cross tuner recording / watching available

  • Using bolts and washers (qty: 4), tighten with 13mm socket and ratchet
  • Use the bolts and nuts (qty:4) and the Philips screwdriver to attach the dish bracket to the dish
  • Use the long threaded bolt and small nut to attach the feed arm to the back base of the dish bracket so the arm protrudes in front of the dish
  • Finally insert the LNB (and plastic insert) into the end of the arm and secure with a tie wrap

2. How to Mount a Satellite Dish

Equipment needed to mount a satellite dish on a wall

  • Sky satellite dish, complete with wall bracket and arm
  • Coach bolt M8 x 50mm & 10mm plastic plugs (qty: 4)

Tools needed to mount on a wall

  • Cordless drill - ideally a 24-36v SDS Drill
  • 8mm, 10mm drill bits
  • 10mm, 13mm socket and ratchet
  • Satellite meter

Criteria on where to mount the satellite dish?

  • Dish must face South East (141 degrees i.e. direction of sun 11am BST)
  • Wall must be a solid surface capable of carrying weight of satellite dish
  • Signal must not be blocked by houses or trees (signal is coming in at 21 degrees to the horizontal)
  • Place at back or gable end of house to minimise visual intrusion
  • Place as close at possible to TV room to which the satellite cables are to connected so as to minimise cable run

Steps

  • Place the wall bracket and arm in the correct location
  • Use the cordless drill and 8mm drill bit to drill 4 guide holes
  • Use 10mm drill bit to drill holes to a depth of 60mm
  • Insert the 4 plastic plugs in the holes and mount the wall bracket using the 4 coach bolts
  • Tighten the coach bolts using the 13mm socket and ratchet
  • Attach the satellite dish to the arm of the wall plate
  • Use 10mm socket to lightly tighten the dish 'U'-bolts so they are fixed to arm but the dish can still be rotated
  • Follow steps in the how to align a satellite dish guide

3. How to Align a Sky / Freesat Satellite Dish

  • Having already mounted the satellite dish on your wall
  • Attach your satellite meter to the dish LNB
  • Align the dish so that it is (1) perfectly vertical, (2) pointing south east (141 degrees).
  • Rotate the dish slowly over and back
  • Repeat adjusting the tilt angle by 1 or 2 degrees to until a signal is found
  • Tighten the U-bolts and side bolts using the 10mm & 13mm sockets
  • Disconnect the satellite meter
  • Connect a cable with an 'F-type' connector from the dish to the satellite box
  • Check that the signal is working

4. How to Run Cables & Attach Connectors

The next step is to run satellite cable to the satellite receiver

Tools needed

  • Hammer
  • Snips
  • Drill
  • SDS Drill Bit 10X450

Equipment

  • Satellite Installation Kit

Prior to begining you must decide

  • Decide how to run cable
    • Connect into existing cables in the attic
      • Normally neater but requires additional connectors
      • May need a multi-meter to be able to identify the correct cable
      • May result in longer cable runs
    • Run a cable directly from the satellite dish to the satellite receiver
      • Fastest and easiest way to run a cable
      • Cable runs are normally shorter
      • Requires the drill of a hole through a wall

STEPS

  • If the satellite receiver is to be located next to the external wall of a room
    • Use a drill and an SDS Drill Bit 10x450 to drill a hole through the wall
    • Ensuring to drill from the inside out
  • To conceal broken plaster use either
    • Hole tidy (insert inside and out before the cable is run)
    • Cable cover nailed onto the outside wall after the cable has been run
  • Feed the end of the satellite cable through the wall leaving enough cable to reach the front of the satellite box
  • Now start tacking the cable using 7mm clips and a hammer
  • Ensuring that the cable runs down from the hole that been drilled in the wall
  • This will stop water following the cable into the house
  • Continue tacking the cable
    • Run cable vertically or horizontally but NEVER diagonally
    • If possible hide cable under the plint or behind drain pipes (using 300mm cable ties)
  • Cut the cable leaving enough length to reach the LNB of the dish
  • Put on an F connector on the each end of the satellite cable
  • Screw the F connector on to the LNB
  • Seal the connection using Insulation tape or ideally waterproof self amalgamating tape
  • Secure the cable to the dish feed arm using either 300mm cable ties or Insulation tape
  • Final step is to put on an F connector on the satellite cable next to the satellite receiver

How to put on an F-connector

5. How to Install Your Satellite Receiver

  • Unpack the box
    • Satellite Receiver
    • Remote control
  • Screw the lead from the satellite dish into the LNB in connection
  • Connect a scart or HDMI cable from your TV to the box
  • Plug in the power lead
  • Turn on the power switch on the back on the box
  • After 5-6 seconds the box will come on and should automatically switch TV to AV channel
  • You may need to switch AV channel on TV if it does not automatically switch over

After buying and installing many of these boxes now. I absolutely love them. For anyone who is on a budget and/or somebody who just basically wants to watch some TV, irish and English channels, this box is ideal for that (even though the box comes with many more features as standard).
The box is also very compact, very easy to tune in the saorview channels, (people, please pay the €1 extra and have the English satellite channels pre-installed, well worth it).
The box also comes with adhesive pads on the back of it, it's so small and light it will stick to the back of your TV out of site, ideal for wall mounted TV's. it comes with a small remote eye that you can stick to the front of TV for your remote.
Superb picture quality on this box in HD and also excellent picture quality when using the phono AV out option.
Got two of these boxes,excellent quality from a german company,small and seriously compact.
Ir blaster included. Amazing , but dont forget a hdmi cable under optional extra as we did.
.bang for your buck
fast delivery. no problem in setting the service. value for the money
Very impressed with this Optimus box from FreeTv. The best box I've had to date and service second to none. Many Thanks.
Excellent piece of equipment. Allows me to have all the Irish and U.K. channels on the one remote. It's amazing how small the box is and the eye works perfectly too!
Great box. Ordered it programmed by Freetv for only €1 extra. Brilliant and well worth it. I have been buying from Freetv for years now and never had a problem at all. The after sales care is second to none. Don't hesitate with Freetv and this combination is great! Thanks again lads.
Very impressed with speed of delivery and support by way of very instructive videos online.Will have no problem returning for repeat business.
Well Done again ..
Frank Canty
A great receiver. Worked straight from the box. A very compact box that can be hidden from view as it comes with an IR eye that can be mounted above or below the TV to receive the commands from the remote control..Good value and recommended.
Hi
I've just received the Combo Box, connected and up and running in a just a few easy steps, I have being getting to know the Remote control and all's well there too.
Regards

Joe Walsh
Received delivery of box one day after ordering & was surprised how quickly it arrived. With no information booklet re setting of Irish channels , deleting & organising favourites, I used YouTube to get much needed info & now enjoying excellent reception on Optimuss box. [STAFF NOTE] That is why we make the video guides. It makes everything simple:-) Glad you were happy with the box & our service
Very satisfied with this combo box, it is the second one I have puchased from FreeTV. I also have a Ferguson Ariva 153 combo which is not as good, the Optimuss has a far better user interface and OSD.
Great box .easy to set up .Only problem I had was I forgot when I connected to sky dish that sky have scrambled rte .But all other English channels no problem .bought myself an indoor Ariel 30 euros now have rte .highly recommend this box .y4
Thank you for quick delivery and it works perfect as all the items i have purched from you in the past
Excellent product and price. Delivery service was next day. Added bonus was the size of the product. Very neat and tidy. Highly recomend. Thanks for great service
Excellent receiver, pefect picture, easy to set up and edit/arrange channels. Very compact and can be fixed behind TV with handy IR eye lead to front. Wifi worked well with dongle. Well programmed on delivery which was very quick. This product is a good alternative and cheaper to the Ferguson Ariva 153 Combo which I also have, if you do not need the 153 Web services which are not great anyway.

INDEX

  • Overview
  • Free to Air
  • Freesat
  • Freeview

Overview

The 3 terms widely (and often incorrectly) used to describe a receiver to get the free satellite channels are as follows

  • Free to Air: Received by a Generic Satellite Receiver
  • Freesat: Received by an ITV/BBC Patented Satellite Receiver
  • Freeview: NOT Received by a Satellite Receiver - It"s a Digital Terrestrial TV Service

Below we give full details of the differences

Free to Air (FTA)

  • This is received using a generic satellite receiver and is used with a satellite dish
  • It is Free to Air meaning it is used to pick up free satellite channels
  • But can come with a card slot to allow it to be used for subscription services
  • It is capable of working with any satellite (so long as the dish is large enough)
  • Manufactured by a range of up to about 120 different companies
  • Boxes can come in the following formats
    • Standard definition
    • High definition
    • Twin feed HD to allow you to record one channel & look at another
    • HD Satellite & Terrestrial Combo receiver
  • Good Points
    • It is non subscription
    • It is very versatile in terms of channel line up and satellite"s that can be accessed
    • Huge range of different boxes
    • Generally cheaper than official freesat boxes
  • Drawback
    • Unlike freesat
      • It does not automatically update if their is a frequency change
      • or new channels becomes available
    • Getting spare remotes can sometimes be an issue
  • Main channels include (on astra 2, but totally flexible):
    • BBC 1,2,3,4,
    • UTV, ITV 2,3,4,
    • Channel 4, E4, More 4, Film 4
    • 6 News Channels, 7 Childrens, 8 Movie channels etc
  • We stock these in our free to air satellite receiver section

Freesat

Main points

  • This is a satellite receiver
    • Works in conjunction with a satellite dish
  • It meets the Freesat standards set out by ITV/BBC
  • It will work anywhere in Ireland from a 60cm satellite dish
  • It comes in range of types
    • Freesat SD: SD with no hard drive
    • Freesat HD: HD with no hard drive
    • Freesat+ HD: Twin feed, HD, with hard drive, series link, 7 day EPG etc
  • What makes Freesat special?
    • It is non subscription
    • It has a standard channel line up (program box with a UK Post code)
    • It automatically updates if there is a frequency change
    • or new channels becomes available
    • Easy to get spare remotes
  • Drawbacks
    • It is generally more expensive than free to air boxes
    • It is not as flexible - i.e. you can"t decide the order of the channels in freesat mode
    • Only works off the Astra 2 at 28 East satellite
  • Main channels include
    • BBC 1,2,3,4,
    • UTV, ITV 2,3,4,
    • Channel 4, E4, More 4, Film 4
    • 6 News Channels, 7 Childrens, 8 Movie channels etc
  • We stock these in our Freesat Satellite Receivers section

Freeview

Main points

  • This is a terrestrial service (NOT a satellite service)
    • Works with UHF aerial rather than a satellite dish
  • It meets the Freeview standards set out by ITV/BBC
  • It does not generally work in Ireland (Except along NI border & East coast)
  • We do not stock Freeview boxes
  • What people generally mean when they say Freeview is that they are looking for either
    • A Free To Air Receiver
    • A Freesat Receiver
