Here is my C-Band parabolic tv digital receiver. As shown by the pictures, the incoming coax cable (INPUT) connected both the outer and the core. One goes to digital receiver 1 (receiver 1), and another goes to digital receiver 2 (receiver 2).
- If BOTH receivers are turned ON, they are working fine.
- If receiver 1 is turned OFF, receiver 2 is working fine.
- But, if receiver 2 is turned OFF, the receiver 1 is NOT working.
They are supposed to be connected by a spliter. Unfortunately, I don't have a suitable one. This is temporary until I get it. Then my question is, why is the receiver 1 can not be independent from digital receiver 2 (but not vice versa)? Which one is better in term of loss affected by the connection compared to if compared to use combiner?
