    Dear Sir,

    I am a guy from Mumbai (India), I was looking for a site to enlighten
    me about bands UHF, VHF, S, Hyperband. I couldn't find a site which
    would educate me on the subjecy. Some companies only gave an overview
    explanation which seems marketing their brand.

    Although, i want to know whether TV with UHF, VHF band is sufficient OR
    with todays range of satellite channels S & Hyperband is also required.

    We are subscribers of cable network. Our cable provider is unable to
    transmit/receive nearly 40% channels.
    I beleive there could be one out of three possible reasons. 01.The
    cable provider is unable to receive these channel's signals on his
    satellite.? OR
    02.The cable provider receives this channels, but is unable to
    transmit/forward due to lack of proper transmitting equipments.? OR
    03.The transmission is OK. However, since our Television set has only
    UHF & VHF bands, it cannot receive these channel signals.

    Can you guide me for a solution. Please!
    Moreover, if i want to receive channels like ESPN, Star Sports, TEN
    sports. What could be the requirement for TV, Receiver in terms of
    dish/antenna to receive this channels. Can you guide in which range
    does this satellite channel falls. Is it possible to receive this
    channels from a normal antennae.?

    Regards
    Javed

    I guess, your guess is wrong :)

    There is a number one reason that reads: money!

    Many channels charge for their use. If your provider wants to
    relay those to their customers, they have to pay the owner of the
    channel. And that's usually a charge 'per viewer'.
    Which means, that they pay for any user that might tune in. Which
    makes 'adding a channel' an expensive exercise, not a technical
    challenge.
     
  3. It is a little hard to understand exactly what your describing, but if
    my interpretation is close: It may be a simple case of the TV installed
    on the cable system not being setup correctly. If the TV is set for
    "ANTENNA" (or, something simialr), you will not be able to view all the
    channels on the cable system. You must go into the TV's "SETUP" menu
    and change the option (perhaps specified as "MODE") to "CABLE".

    On one of my TV's here (a Panasonic), the options are "CABLE" and
    (stupidly) "TV". Helllloooooo! It's _all_ "TV". :)

    I think your #3 is correct. If your TV is only UHF/VHF it will not receive
    the cable channels. (It should get channels 2 through 13, as those channels
    are the same frequency for VHF and cable.) You need to get a new TV, or a
    cable box. The cable company should have these. Or you could buy your own.
    The cable box receives the cable channels and converts them to be received
    by your TV on channel 3 or 4.
