Re: Digital Transport Adapter Unboxing Photos

MTS is hard to do at the box from what I read. The analog boxes just took the channel and moved to it Ch 3/4 (no re encoding). 100% digital picture&sound now means RF modulated picture with mono sound. I can get that on YouTube for free.

+1 - of course, they could have put in a stereo mod; YEA, THAT'S going to happen on a box of this caliber...

They would be better off spending .25 to have put in composite A/V jacks - I mean really, if those cheap OTA digital tuners can ALL have them, there is NO reason these shouldn't have, too!

Yeah because internally there should be baseband audio and video feeding an RF modulator. Tap the lines prior to the RF modulator and you may be able to extract a composite signal.

Not impossible, they are just keeping things cheap.
