Key words of the manual
1. SMA701PM-13x: where the “x” stand for S/C/T.
2. Cassette: one SMA701PM-13x or SMA701RM-13D card.
SMA701 is a DVB SMATV system. SMA-701MF has 8 cassette slots with separate modules. The master module can convert the QPSK/QAM/COFDM signal to the traditional RF carrier such as PAL, NTSC or SECAM. The tuner-saved TS modules share descrambled streams from the master module, which supports Common Interface and could descramble several streams at the same time (Multi-decryption function should be supported by CAM). This system can allocate transport streams to CATV system via each module’s forward and mix signal function.
Note: Please connect ground wire before using the product, double check if it is connected well.
