SDV Tuning Adapter Installed!

Bright and early this morning, an installer from Oceanic Time Warner showed up for the installation of my SDV tuning adapter. The overall install took a long time since the thorough tech checked signal strength throughout the household. Once that was done, the installation of the SDV tuning adapter was quick.

The boot up of the tuning adapter took longer than the unboxing and connecting of the device itself. The adapter I got? It’s a Cisco STA1520 which Engadget showed some time back.

The installation and cost of the tuning adapter is free, and what do I get from this box? Not much. I now get a few additional digital channels that Oceanic converted to SDV, but I’m not paying for additional premium stations or packages. I might get the HD pack for $7 a month which I could not receive without the SDV tuning adapter. So now I got options of paying Oceanic more money each month!

    Your setup looks almost exact like mine. Which extra channels did you get? I didn’t even notice any…it just seems like the channels take longer to queue up.

    Raphael, you know I’m not even sure what extra channels I got. I didn’t have time to check all my channels before the installer came. I’m close to buying the extra HD channels to watch shows like Battlestar Galactica in HD before the series ends. ๐Ÿ™

    I did move the SDV tuner since there was a lot of heat produced sitting on top of my Tivo.
