DSTV Explora and 5S extra view.

SOLVED

Re: DSTV Explora and 5S extra view.

The 5U and the 5S decoders only work properly with an SLNB LMX 500, 501, 502.

Next, these decoders no longer have RF ports, so RF distribution becomes tricky.

The decoders are designed to be installed in the rooms where TVs are and work best with TVs equipped with HDMI ports, though AV ports are still available.

So, please describe what you want to do and then we can possibly help.

It may be that although the cabling are all there it is not connected correctly to the SLNB and the user  band settings on the decoders may be wrong.

See my diagram.

Re: DSTV Explora and 5S extra view.

 you have to have a diplexer if there is a smart LNB , coz currently i have a explora and hd pvr and there is a cable running from the dish to both decoders and a cable running between the two decoders as a heartbeat, the explora is getting perfect signal and working perfectly but the hd pvr is not getting signal not sure if it is a setting but the cabling is new with no breaks and connections are properly connected please help

Re: DSTV Explora and 5S extra view.

An aside - as this multiple decoder HB method is regularly suggested with the Explora 1 as well, please could someone let us know if this ever does work as @MCA-David  wasn't able to get an Explora 1 to work via diplexer & SLNB with two Uniview decoders, only with one of them.

 

So there is the older RF cabling HB method you can also ask about. (In its case you have two diplexers, but then behind both 5 series and none behind the Explora 1.)

Re: DSTV Explora and 5S extra view.

Install a SLNB model LMX501 in the antenna. Install a diplexer behind the Explora 1 to sort out  the HB.

Connect the Explora 1 to port A on the SLNB and the 5S decoders to ports B, C.

Select decoder 1 option for the Explora 1, the 5S decoders will use decoder 2 and 3 network settings.
