The Supermax 900 receiver is an FTA device based out of China. FTA, short for free-to-air, is a satellite platform that allows you to receive unscrambled satellite signals from any location in the world. This is different from subscription services, such as DirecTV and Dish Network, that receive scrambled signals and than unscramble the information with the data saved on the receiver. Installing the Supermax 900 only takes a few minutes, regardless of any experience you have with setting up home audio/video equipment.

Plug the cable running from your FTA satellite dish into the "In" port on the rear of the Supermax 900 receiver. Tighten the cable connection by turning it to the right.

Insert the red, white and yellow RCA audio/video cables into the "Video Out" ports. These are found almost in the exact middle of the Supermax 900 receiver's rear panel. Make sure the colours of the cables match the same colour of the connection ports.

Plug the other ends of the RCA audio/video cables into the "Video In" ports on the television. Power on the receiver and the television, then select "Video" on the TV and the satellite programming appears on the television screen.
