I just bought a Explorer 4250HD and connected the cable OUT to the antenna input of my TV BUT THERE IS NO SIGNAL on the Cable out
Is it necessary to configure something in the setup menu to have something in the Cable Out or is it all time desactivated by Videotron
Except this problem the decoder works fine
Thanks for your Help
I came across the same thing, my thoughts being that I could have sd on the screen while listening to music, but the cable out didn't work on mine. I didn't look into tho, perhaps a bad batch of boxes?
I want to use the Cable out to feed a Pace 550
I have 2 decoders a SA4250 set to 16:9 which drive my Sony Bravia 22" by the HDMI cable and a Pace 550 set for 4:3 to drive by the Y Pr Pb an old Sony DVD recorder 900
That why I want the cable out, as it does not work I put a RF splitter which fedd both decoder , with such setup I have asgnal level , depnding of chnanels between +5 and +7
You cannot use the cable out to another STB since the first STB only sends the signal for the channel that it's tuned to. You need to use an RF-coax splitter upstream of both STBs, rated 5-1000 MHz minimum and bidirectional. I have no idea why your existing splitter didn't work.
In case you need it, here's the link for connecting a DVD recorder:
It's my understanding that with Videotron, you may need to pay additional money for analogue service if you want that option, discussed in another thread... My guess is you don't need the analogue if you're exclusively using the 550 with the recorder.
