For this proyect we need:
- A Satelite receiver (!!! not DVB-T!!!)
- A 24V Relai (My is out from an broken Hi-Fi Amplifer)
- A Standart diode
- Some wire
- maybe Some Hot glue
- maybe some shrump tube
Step 1: The Right Receiver
For testing we need a multimeter.
We switch the multimeter and the receiver on (NOT STANDBY). Now we connect negative pin of the multimeter to the outside of the IF Input (or to LNB) and the positive pin inside the IF Input (or to LNB). The multimeter should show something between 13 and 19V.
Now we switch of the receiver of(Standby) and look if the voltage goes away.If it does we can continue with the next step. If not or the receiver hasn't a powerbuten on the Remote then it doesn't works.
Step 2: Hack the Tuner
We search the Tuner (a small metal box with the IF In conector on the bakplane).
To open we take a flat screwdriver and push to a lax. It sould look like on the image.
Now we need to solder one wire to the antenna conector (on the image marked with +) another wire
to the case of the tuner (on the image marked with -). It sould Look like on the image 3.
Now we have to cut a hole in the cover of the Tuner to fit the cables true. We klose the Tuner.
Step 3: Mount the Relai
Now we have to solder the Power Cables to the relai like in Image 2. Now we Take the srumping tube and isolate all the contacts.
With the hot glue we glue the relai to the case of the reciver. We alsow have to cut two extra holes in the case for the Power Cables!
Step 4: The Remotesensor
Step 5: Uses for This Instructables
- to switch a light
- to turn a reciver or television whitoud a bowerbuton on the Remote
- to switch Lots of Standby devices
