HDTV Digital Modulator Features:
  • F-connector-type coaxial output. Designed to interface with an existing HDTV Digital Tuner/Decoder through the antenna input.
  • F-connector-type coaxial antenna input to allow pass-through of a terrestrial digital signal.
  • Seamless interface when used with compatible HDTV models. Allows the user to seamlessly switch between DISH Network High Definition, DISH Network Standard Definition and terrestrial digital or analog broadcasts, all using the Model 5000 remote control. See "Equipment Tested for Compatibility" below.
  • Output port provides for the use of an IR extender to support the seamless interface (optional).
  • Supports Dolby Digital 5.1 sound when present in the source material and used with a Dolby Digital Decoder. The Dolby Digital interface to an external Dolby Digital Decoder is achieved via the SPDIF output on the HDTV Digital Tuner/Decoder.

At this time, the antenna must be pointed to the 61.5 satellite position to receive our HDTV HBO East Channel (Channel 861).

$299.95 (Requires Model 5000 receiver with dish antenna, an HDTV and HDTV decoder/tuner, not included.)
