Essential Info

The Channel Plus 4-Channel Modulator converts the audio/video signals from your VCR, DVD player, satellite, or security camera to any four user-selected channels (UHF or CATV). Just select the channel you want to modulate to using the "program" button on the front—now you can tune-in to that channel to watch what's playing on the selected video device. If you are watching a TV in another room, running back to the VCR or DVD player (to pause the movie), or satellite receiver (to change the channel) can be difficult and inconvenient. The Channel Plus modulator has an integrated IR control engine that lets you remotely control your video device. Coax cable, RCA audio/video cable, Video distribution amplifier, In-wall IR interface panel, IR target, IR emitter, and Y adapters sold separately.


What's Included

  • Channel Plus 4-Channel Modulator Base Unit
  • Manual
  • AC Adapter
  • Four sticky "feet"
  • More Info

    The Channel Plus 4-Channel Modulator converts any baseband video/audio signal to four user-selected UHF or Ultraband CATV channels. Just select the output frequency using the "program" button. Any TV connected to the output via coax can receive the signal when the TV is tuned to the modulated channel. The Channel Plus modulator has an integrated IR control engine with four IR repeater jacks, making it possible to remotely control a video distribution panel (amplifier) without the need to run a power line to the panel. With the addition of an IR Wall Plate with an attached IR sensor (emitter), you'll be able to send remote signals back to the Channel Plus 4-Channel Modulator over coax cable. The Channel Plus modulator works with both 12-volt and 5-volt IR systems and accessories. The Channel Plus modulator also has four terminating jumpers for hi-Z.

    Bill -- SF Bay area   4/5/2010
    I left a review The first one that it did not work with digital TV's WRONG it works fine now. Bill
    FREDERIC -- centerville, IN   5/30/2009
    Works as stated. Easy to set up.
    Bill Isaak -- California   6/23/2008
    I am using it for four outdoor security cameras that show up on any TV in the house. The only problem i have is that it will not allow a camera picture to show up on a newer digital flat-screen TV. This is frustrating as that is all i have. I had to bring an old analog TV out of mothballs. If any buddy knows a work around it would be greatly appreciated. The company that makes the device is aware of the problem but has no solution. I can be emailed at Bill
    BRIAN -- alpharetta, GA   3/29/2008
    Very useful. It is important to know that you can only use every other channel. I used with a low pass filter to block all the high channels. At first I wanted to use a notch filter but it only blocked 6 channels which wasn't enough to modulate 4 channels
    Chris -- lakeland, FL   12/23/2007
    Works great. Sending multiple DirecTV satellite receivers to every room in the house.
    JP -- hawthorn woods, IL   6/21/2007

    PAUL -- westlake village, CA   1/23/2007
    This device is an iudeal solution for disributing RF signals from TiVo's, DVR's, etc. to all the rooms in your home. It was extremely easy to set up.
    Jeff Johnson -- chesapeake, Virginia   11/20/2006
    Works great, allows individual channel designation, easy setup, however it needs to work with 1080i hd format, and digital integration
    HOWARD -- chatsworth, CA   3/12/2006
    works great & allowed me to set up 4 distinct channels. I did need to also get a low pass filter to clean up some of the static
    JAMES -- wasilla, AK   3/4/2006
    Easy setup, high quality video. Note that while it has left and right audio inputs, it is mono only (great for cameras). Make sure you get 5 volt IR targets.
    ROY -- gainesville, FL   3/1/2006
    Excellent product. Easy to set up.
    KEVIN -- murfreesboro, TN   11/16/2005
    Based on the price, I am getting better results with this unit than expected. I wish I had also purchased the IR kit. I wasn't sure which modulator I needed and your representative pointed me to this unit. Thanks!
