RCA Wall Plate
I got satellite reception through the brown wall plate containing 2 terminals (F-type) marked “satellite/aux” and “tv” whereas the satellite box is connected using coaxial cable (F-type). If I disconnect the “out to tv” coaxial cable and connect the standard a/v cables (red/white/yellow) to the white RCA wall plate switch/selector middle row of terminals mark “cable/satellite” and set the RCA wall plate selector to “cable/satellite”, I lose satellite reception. Here is my question: This loss of satellite reception (signal) has led me to believe that if I wanted to use cable programing (Cox Communications) as opposed to satellite, I would have to make connection using the standard a/v cables (red/white/yellow)? Otherwise, I don’t see the relevancy of the white selector plate as it relates to satellite? Apparently, my satellite connection at the back of the tv set (which I cannot get off the wall) must be strictly through coaxial cable (F-type) and cable tv programing (i.e. Cox Communications) must be through a/v cables at the back of the tv set.
White RCA Wall Plate Selector/Switch:
My experience with the satellite connection as described above has led me to believe that the white RCA wall plate switch/selector with the 3 rows of a/v terminals marked “Game, Cable/Satellite, MP3/TV” and corresponding switch in the bottom right corner with the same markings “Game, Cable/Satellite, MP3/TV” including an additional selection marked “XM/Pod” is for additional inputs. Is this plate used to introduce (integrate) additional inputs into the system?
