Question & Answers About p/n DCT210

 

Will your part number (p/n) DCT210 tune to analog channels and show it on my TV?

The DCT210 is a digital TV tuner and will display only Standard Digital (SD) or High Definition (HD) Digital channels. To view the old analog channels (that is the lower band, old channels 1-99) an ANALOG tuner is required.

 

Do I need my Cable operator's permission to connect the DCT210?

The DCT210 is a legitimate device. You don't need your Cable operator's permission to use it. The tuner will not interfere with the operator's system.

 

I pay for premium HDTV channels to watch CNN and other Cable networks. Can I watch CNN if I have the DCT210?

premium services (such as HBO, CNN, Showtime, Straz, Playboy etc.), "Pay Per View" and "Movies On Demand are encrypted and require special subscription (and additional payment to the basic service fee) to unlock the encryption. These channels can not be displayed by "Clear" QAM tuners such as our p/n DCT210. For more information about this topic please link to our "Cable QAM and 'Clear' QAM" page.

 

What is "Clear" QAM?

QAM is a digital transmission method used in Cable TV. "Clear" is a technical descriptive term indicating unencrypted channel.

 

Where can I find "Clear" QAM channels in my Cable service?

"Clear" QAM channels are available in the basic service plan provided by your Cable operator.

 

How many "Clear" QAM channels will be picked up by your p/n DCT210?

The number of unencrypted "Clear" channels available through the coaxial RF cable feed from your Cable operator is solely determined by the operator marketing policy in your area and may differ from one location to another.

 

Why some channels I see on my TV are not available through the DCT210?

Many TV sets produced before the digital transition that went into effect on Friday June 12, 2009 have a hybrid analog/digital tuner and pick up the analog channels that are still transmitted by the Cable operators simultaneously with the digital channels. These analog transmissions are gradually converted to digital and will disappear shortly. As said above, the DCT210 is a digital tuner and will not tune to analog channels.

 

Can I connect the p/n DCT210 to my old TV and projector that do not have HDMI input?

The p/n DCT210 is a perfect digital tuner for such application. By connecting your RF feed to the tuner it will tune to digital unencrypted ("Clear") QAM channels in your basic Cable service and will output analog audio video signal from one of the following outputs: Composite Video, S-Video and Component Video. It is the right solution for use with old analog TV sets or projectors.

 

Is the DCT210 limited to Cable reception only?

No! The DCT210 is also an Over The Air (OTA) receiver and will tune to terrestrial OTA ATSC digital transmissions available in your location. The number of OTA channels you will receive depend on the available broadcasts in your area, signal strength and quality. OTA or Cable reception are selected during the tuner setup process.

 

What will affect the OTA signal strength and quality?

There are many parameters that influence signal strength and quality. Some of them are:

  • Distance from the transmitter.
  • Terrain type and the existing of large bodies between your antenna and the transmitter.
  • The type and location of your antenna.
  • Weather conditions.

 

I have a question but could not find the answer on this page. What shall I do?
