The Tuning Adapter with CableCARD devices
CableCARD devices sold at retail are designed to view one-way broadcast channels. A Tuning Adapter can be connected to a compatible CableCARD device, enabling that device to display two-way communication channels.
The Tuning Adapter with the Cable card will allow two-way and premium channels. However, Pay-Per-View and the program guide will not be available.
The number of devices compatible with the Tuning Adapter may change, but for now these are the compatible devices:
- Tivo (TiVo Series 3 or higher)
- OCUR (connected to PC running Windows 7 or Windows 8)
The Digital Adapter, also known as DTA
A Digital Adapter is a very simple device that provides improved picture and sound quality and access to Basic TV and Standard TV channels only.
Parental controls and High Definition channels are available with the Digital Adapter. However, Premium Channels, Pay-Per-View, and the program guide are not available. Switched Digital Video (SDV) is not compatible with this service.
For those subscribers who have Basic TV or Standard TV Service, the Digital Adapter is available for $2.30 monthly. There are other options that offer additional functionality. Please contact us if you have any questions.
