Questions & Answers Powered by TurnTo®

Questions about this item:

Shopper  can I connect this to a cable box?
DAVID P  You would not want to connect this device to a cable box. If you did, the only channel that could be watched or recorded would be the one that you have selected on your cable box. You want to connect this device directly to your cable (you may need a device to split the cable, allowing one to go to this device and the other to your cable box). That way, the software would get the direct cable signal. The software would then be used to switch channels. Obviously, any 'scrambled' signals (such as premium channels) would not be available.
