The DCT210 Terrestrial off-air external HDTV tuner and Clear QAM Cable receiver is an excellent device for use with projectors and monitors featuring HDMI, Component and Composite inputs. The TV tuner provide excellent picture and crispy stereo sound. Very useful with Projectors, DVD recorders and VCRs without integrated TV tuner!
Analog Channels Display:
The Cable operator in your area is sending a mixture of both analog and digital channels. Some of the analog channels already converted to unencrypted standard digital (SD) format that can be displayed by the DCT210.
The DCT210 is a digital TV tuner and will display only Standard Digital (SD) or High Definition (HD) Digital channels. However, if your TV has a built in ANALOG TV tuner, you may use the RF bypass feature on the DCT210 and get some of the old analog channels (that is the lower band, old channels 1-99) through the TV built-in analog TV tuner. Please read in the DCT210 manual on how to use the RF bypass.
