This section provides instructions for installing and cabling the DCT 2000. To complete the installation, you must: Connect the cables Supply power to equipment Download configuration information and software Run operational check and diagnostics

Before You Begin

Before you begin, review the installation instructions, gather the required items, and complete the tasks listed below: Determine if the subscribers system requirements include an A/B In, RF Bypass, Dual A/B-RF Bypass module, or a STARFONE module. These options can be installed before leaving the office. Installation instructions are provided with these modules. Verify that you have 75-ohm coaxial cables with F-type connectors and RCA baseband phonotype cables. Determine if you are connecting the DCT 2000 to a standard TV or a composite (baseband) monitor. Place the DCT 2000 on a smooth, flat surface and remove any obstructions that could interfere with the free flow of air over, under, or around it. Advise the subscriber not to place anything on top of the unit.

Either or

The S-Video connector is part of the Home Theatre option and is not included on all DCT 2000s. When connecting the video path, never connect baseband composite video and S-Video together. Because some entertainment equipment will not support both video inputs simultaneously, use only one connection path.

When all of the RCA audio connectors on the back of the stereo receiver are used, the DCT 2000 enables audio to pass through an external device such as a CD player. In this configuration, a subscribers CD player can be played through the DCT 2000 to a stereo receiver. Figure 3-16 illustrates how to connect the RCA baseband auxiliary audio input/output on the DCT 2000:

Figure 3-16 CD player cabling

CD PLAYER

The DCT 2000 must be turned off from the front panel to enable audio loop-through signals to pass through. When the DCT 2000 is powered on, the audio outputs correspond with the currently tuned channel on the DCT 2000.
Dolby Digital Cabling Diagrams
The DCT 2000 can deliver Dolby AC-3 audio to a Dolby Digital stereo receiver using the SPDIF RCA connector. Because the SPDIF does not carry audio for analog channels, use both the baseband L/R audio and the SPDIF connectors when connecting the DCT 2000 to a digital receiver. PCM audio and AC-3 are the operation modes for the SPDIF connector. PCM audio mode is the default setting from the factory. Use the Electronic Program Guide (EPG) to select an alternative operating mode for the DCT 2000. If the EPG does not provide a PCM or AC-3 option, then the SPDIF port will default to PCM audio. Table 3-1 describes the functionality of the audio ports based on the digital audio mode selected:
Table 3-1 Audio port functionality

Digital Audio Mode

Left/Right RCA ports SPDIF RCA port

PCM Mode

Audio for digital and analog channels PCM audio (Audio on digital channels only)

AC-3 Mode

Audio for analog channels only Dolby AC-3 (Audio on digital channels only)

For normal viewing:

Set the DCT 2000 to PCM audio mode using the Electronic Program Guide. Adjust the Dolby Digital receiver input audio settings for the DCT 2000 to baseband L/R inputs (refer to stereo receiver instructions for more information). This prevents audio loss while channel surfing through analog channels. When a digital program has been selected for viewing, set the DCT 2000 to AC-3 mode using the EPG. Set the stereo receiver to digital audio input to experience AC-3 audio.
Many Dolby Digital receivers are designed with A/V output ports that feed external devices such as a VCR. The AV output content is based on the selected input device. If the DCT 2000 is selected as the input device for VCR recording, an alternate device cannot simultaneously use the Dolby Digital receiver, or the VCR will then record the secondary device. (Reference the Dolby Digital receiver installation manual for information on selecting and configuring A/V interfaces on the receiver).
Using this configuration the audio/video signals are passed through the digital receiver to enable the VCR record and playback features. Figure 3-17 illustrates audio/video connections for a Dolby Digital receiver:

Locating the IR Receiver on the VCR
The IR receiver is not visible on some VCRs. You can locate the receiver using the following procedure:
Obtain a piece of opaque material, such as a 3- by 5-inch index card. Use the card to block areas of the VCR where the receiver might be located. Turn the VCR on and off, while pointing the remote control at the card blocking the VCR. Be sure the remote control is close to the VCR to reduce reflections the receiver may pick up. Note the area where the VCR is unresponsive to the remote control. This region contains the receiver and can be marked by loosely taping the index card to the area.
Because the IR Blaster radiates an area approximately 40 degrees wide, it is not necessary to be precisely on target with the remote control. Offset the location of the IR Blaster transmitters from the VCR receiver to reduce interference with operation of the VCR remote control.
Installing the IR Blaster
To install the IR Blaster:
Fit the transmitter into the mounting bracket (refer to Figure 4-1). Plug the mini-pin connector into the IR jack on the rear panel of the DCT 2000 rear panel (refer to Figure 4-2).
Figure 4-2 IR Blaster installed

DCT 2000

Remove the adhesive tape cover from the mounting bracket. Position the IR receiver off center of the VCR receiver and then press firmly attaching the mounting bracket on the VCR. Be careful to route the wire so that it does not prevent loading videotapes.
Checking the Installation
The IR Blaster is now located near the receiver and the VCR can be controlled through the DCT 2000. As a final check, operate the VCR using the remote control from various positions in the room. If the IR Blaster is obstructing the IR receiver on the VCR, move it slightly.
