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, TiVo HD or TiVo HD XL) TiVo HD DVR
- OCUR (connected to PC running Windows 7)
Oceanic Time Warner Cable is making available Tuning Adapters in those locations that need it. If you have a compatible CableCARD device listed above, you can order a Tuning Adapter, and we will notify you when they are available.
