Setting up "Telecard": step-by-step instructions, features and recommendations

"Telecard" is a provider that provides only high-quality TV channels. If you want to pay for what you use, then this provider is for you. Broadcasting passes through the satellite operator Orion Express, which delivers only the best Russian and foreign channels. Most of the Russians have already switched to "Telecard", since this operator has set rather low prices for both installation and use.

Of course, the "Telecard" setting and its installation will be paid. Many people do not want to pay extra, but try to install everything themselves. This is what will be discussed right now. Let's look at how the "Telecard" setting is done.

Favorable conditions for the installation of "Telecard", checking your local area

First we need to check how the satellite dish will interact in your area. It should be noted that the broadcasting of this operator is made from the satellite Intelsat-15 (85.15 ° - the point in the geostationary orbit).

You will need to consider the coverage area. If your area falls into the reception area, you need a fairly small plate (diameter - 0.6 meters). Another case - you did not get into this zone. What to do? To do this, you will need to purchase a satellite dish with a larger diameter. You need to know this before you buy a set for satellite TV.

So, you all found out and headed for the store. After purchasing a satellite dish, it will need to be set up. How to do it? We need to find out how to direct the dish so that it gets on the satellite. With the help of a compass this can not be determined, since it will show a completely different meaning. To configure the "Telecard" on the satellite was successful, you need to determine the exact value of the geomagnetic declination in the place where you spend the installation.


If you want to determine the exact value, you can call number 8 (800) 100-104-7, where the operator will specify the required coordinates for your settlement. Setting up the "Telecard" antenna will in this case take place much faster. But, unfortunately, on the Internet there are many reviews that the operator says not quite the correct coordinates, which, in turn, makes configuration difficult.

You, of course, can try to call the operator, but if he specifies the wrong value, then you will lose a lot of time. You can go in a different way, which clearly demonstrates how to direct the plate. You need to go to the Satellite Finder site, where directions will be shown on Google Maps. How can I see this? Everything is very simple. First we look for our city and specify the exact place where the satellite dish will be installed. After that, specify the satellite, which we need to tune in. After such simple manipulations, the green line will indicate the direction.

The setting of the "Telecard" dish will be made according to the following coordinates:

  • The magnetic azimuth for the compass is 122.4 degrees.
  • The angle of rotation of the converter is -29.9 degrees.

You should understand that the higher you set the satellite dish, the more accurate the signal will be. Of course, it can be set low, if towards the satellite there are no barriers (high houses, forests, etc.).

Installing the satellite dish

On the Internet you can find many different instructions on how to install a satellite dish. Of course, they all fit, since the most important thing is to secure the device securely. How to do it?

We will need:

  • Universal dowels ZUM 12х71.
  • Self-tapping screws.
  • Several large bolts (75 mm).
  • Level.

Mount the satellite dish on the pipe section, which is located vertically upwards. You can check this by level. During installation, you will need to separate the antenna cable and mount the F-type connectors on the ends. Next you will need to fix the bracket.

Let's start assembling the satellite dish. Connect the cable and turn the converter so that it is tuned to the satellite.

Final stage. Install the satellite dish on the bracket. We need to fix it, but do not tighten the nuts. So we can move it until we are sure that the configuration is complete.

More detailed instructions can be found on the website "Telecard". Professional masters from a to I will tell you how to properly install the plates.

Setting up the channels of "Telecard"

Before connecting all the wires, you need to make sure that the satellite receiver and TV are turned off or even not connected to the network. You can connect the receiver through SCART or "tulips".

After connecting, you can turn on the TV with the receiver. To connect to the channels provided by "Telecard", you need to switch the TV to "AV" mode. As a rule, when you turn it on for the first time, a picture appears that indicates that the receiver is working, but the antenna is not set up. In this case, self-tuning is also possible. "Telecard" will be activated via the remote control. Go to the menu and go to the "Antenna Settings". If you do not fully customize the satellite dish, then the readings should be as follows:

  • The signal power is about 45 percent.
  • The signal quality is about 5%.

With such evidence, you can not watch TV. To get a really good signal, you need to strive for high values (power - 90 percent, and quality - 70 percent).

Of course, a fairly good image can be obtained with a signal quality of 50 percent. But if you get high values, then bad weather will not be a barrier to comfortable watching TV.

Advanced antenna tuning: how to increase performance

If the coordinates given to you by the operator or which you saw on the site did not work, then the additional setting of "Telecard" is simply necessary. The essence of the method is simple and understandable, but with the help of it we can get a better signal.

So, what is this method? We need to gradually turn the antenna. After each step, you need to give 5 seconds for the receiver to process the signal and tune in to the satellite. Of course, after that you will need to look at the new values that will be shown on the TV. Setting up "Telecard" is a fairly simple, but long process. If you can not find a suitable value, when you rotate the antenna horizontally, you should try and rotate vertically. Remember, the increase in power is accompanied by an increase in the quality of signal reception.

If you get the appropriate values, then you can assume that the setting of the "Telecard" channels is over. It remains only to tighten all the bolts and go to watch the TV.

How long does it take to configure the satellite dish

So, a qualitative adjustment of the antenna "Telecard" was made. Independently beginners can do hours for three painstaking work. Of course, if you immediately find the correct coordinates, this will greatly reduce the time.

Professionals can install in an hour. As they say, beginners can take a long time with this, but in the end adjust. Each person is able to install a satellite dish, you just need to get a little patience and everything will turn out.

Where is the best to buy a set of satellite TV

Acquire all the necessary elements better from official suppliers. As a rule, they have the opportunity to check the equipment, and during installation you will not doubt its efficiency. Also you can immediately activate the "Telecard" card.


As you yourself saw, in setting up "Telecard" there is nothing complicated. It only looks at first glance laborious, but in reality in a few hours you will get a fairly high-quality television broadcast. Remember that before installing it is necessary to find out which plate to buy (whether you are in the zone of visibility) and whether there are any obstructions on the path of the signal. So you protect yourself from problems in the future. If you do not want to do this, then it's better to order installation from the official suppliers of "Telecard".
