RF Bypass Switch Cabling Diagrams
The RF Bypass switch enables the cable signal to pass directly to a cable-ready TV, bypassing
the DCT5100. The bypass mode is automatically initiated under one of three conditions: when
the DCT5100 loses power, when it is turned off from the front panel, or when the user manually
activates the switch by pressing the A/B key. If the DCT5100 loses power or is turned off, the
subscriber can continue viewing the clear analog channels on the cable system. Activating
bypass mode enables you to tape a tuned channel from the DCT5100 while watching a different
clear channel that is bypassed to the TV.
Proper operation of the RF Bypass feature requires special configuration information from the
control system, and proper user interface settings in the Electronic Program Guide (EPG).
Figure 3-2 illustrates RF cabling to an optional VCR using the RF Bypass switch. When a VCR
is not present, install the supplied jumper cable from the CONV OUT to CONV IN on the RF Bypass
switch.

The DCT5100 is capable of delivering Dolby AC-3 audio to a Dolby Digital stereo receiver using
the SPDIF RCA connector. When connecting to a receiver, you can use the left/right RCA
baseband audio outputs or the SPDIF RCA connection. The connections you use will depend on
the capabilities of the audio receiver. The SPDIF port carries the audio stream in either a PCM
or Dolby AC-3 format. If the subscriber does not have a Dolby Digital receiver, use the baseband
Left/Right audio RCA connections to interface to the audio receiver.
The following illustrations show audio/video connections to a digital receiver, where the receiver
functions as an audio/video router. When connecting the audio path to a digital receiver,
reference your receiver’s installation instructions for directions on connecting to baseband and
SPDIF ports.

The VCR and TV receive their audio/video signals from the currently selected input device on the
digital receiver. This is important when the subscriber has another audio/video device such as a
DVD player, a secondary VCR, a CD player, or other electronic component. It is recommended
that you connect the TV to the monitor output so On-Screen menus associated with the receiver
can be displayed. (In many cases the receivers themselves have interactive on-screen menus).

If your stereo receiver has the ability to check both the baseband and SPDIF ports for appropriate
channels, you will want to connect both the baseband and SPDIF connections. Otherwise, do not
connect both the baseband left/right RCA connections and the RCA SPDIF digital connection.
The baseband connections are not necessary because the SPDIF port carries audio for both
digital and analog channels providing for a single audio interface.

IR Blaster Transmitter
The optional IR Blaster provides control of the subscriber’s VCR from the DCT5100. It consists
of a low-power infrared transmitter attached to a six-foot cord and a mounting bracket. The
mounting bracket is a clear plastic holder that has a pad of adhesive tape that enables you to
install the IR Blaster near the VCR IR receiver. A mini-pin connector at the end of the cord
connects the IR Blaster to the DCT5100. The IR Blaster is sold separately as an accessory item.
The availability and functionality of the IR Blaster depends on the installed application
software.
Figure 3-8 illustrates the IR transmitter installed in the mounting bracket:
Figure 3-8
IR transmitter installed in mounting bracket
Adhesive tape
Mounting bracket
Transmitter
Once installed, the IR Blaster is activated automatically through the electronic program guide.
Individual VCR codes are broadcast through the out-of-band data channel and are updated
periodically as new codes are added.
The procedure for installing the IR Blaster is described in the following paragraphs.
Locating the IR Receiver on the VCR
The IR receiver area is not visible on some VCRs. To locate it:
Obtain a piece of opaque material, such as a 3- by 5-inch index card.
Use the card to block off areas of the VCR where the IR receiver might be located. Try to
turn the VCR on and off with the remote control pointed directly at it, and close enough to
reduce the possibility that the receiver will see IR reflections.
Note the blocked area where the VCR is unresponsive to the remote control. This region
contains the sensor and can be marked by loosely taping the index card to the area.
Because the IR Blaster radiates in an area approximately 40 degrees wide, you do not need to be
precisely on target with the receiver. You may prefer to offset the location of the IR Blaster
transmitter so that it is less likely to interfere with operation of the VCR remote control.

Boot Cycle
After connecting the proper cabling to the DCT5100, plug the power cord into the DCT5100 and
electrical wall outlet. Begin performing the boot cycle procedure:
The LED displays HUNT and then FR 1.
The DCT5100 begins searching for the headend Out of Band (OOB) frequency carrier. If the
OOB frequency is not set to 75.25 MHz, the LED flashes FR 1 and then flashes FR 2. This
searching process repeats until the correct OOB frequency is found and the required
message for your set-top model is acquired. Table 3-1 illustrates the LED displays and OOB
frequencies:

When multiple OOB frequencies are used, the DCT5100 pauses 40 seconds on each valid
frequency. The LED displays dl and a progress indicator, which identifies a software object
download. The progress indicator, or crawling ant, moves one position around the dl display
for each segment of download received. If the dl stops moving up and down on the LED for
an extended period of time, contact the headend operator.
The progress indicator usually moves at a consistent rate as segment downloads are
received. If all the segments are retrieved in the first pass, the EF, AU and FP messages are
displayed on the LED. If segments are dropped, the progress indicator appears to stall and
then inch forward after the dropped segments are retired.
When the progress indicator alternates between rapid and sluggish movement, this may
indicate that the stream is spinning too fast for existing plant conditions.
The LED displays EF for up to 60 seconds when the software object download is complete
during flash erasure and then displays FP for up to 60 seconds during flash programming.
The DCT5100 is ready for initialization by the headend controller when the LED display is
blank. Verify that the DCT5100 is powered up or reset within two minutes of a completed
download.
Boot Cycle Error Codes
If hardware or software problems occur, the DCT5100 displays error codes on the LED display.

Diagnostics
This section describes the diagnostics designed to confirm proper installation of the DCT5100.
They include checking error states, signal integrity, and provisions to identify the DCT5100 on
the network and verify communications with the headend. The diagnostic information is
displayed on the front-panel LEDs and the On-Screen Display (OSD).
For diagnostics provided in this section:
All indicators are in decimal notation unless otherwise noted.
All signal-level and quality indicators are based on a 1% to 100% scale, unless otherwise
noted.
All sample displays are illustrative; actual data may differ from the examples.
Accessing Diagnostics
You can run the base platform software or Thin Client software to access the DCT5100
diagnostics. The Heritage mode and the Enhanced mode are the two modes of entry for
accessing diagnostics. The Heritage mode uses the front-panel keys or IR remote and is
commonly used with the DCT 1000, DCT 1200, and DCT2000 models. The Enhanced mode uses
the front-panel keys and supports an on/off state-independent entry.
To access diagnostics using the Heritage and Enhanced modes:
1
Ensure the set-top is installed with the base platform or Thin Client software and that it is
connected to an ac outlet.
2
Press POWER and then within 2 seconds press SELECT for Heritage mode.
or
Simultaneously press both CURSOR ◄ and CURSOR ► and hold both keys for three seconds for
Enhanced mode.
The DIAGNOSTICS main menu is displayed on the OSD and d01 is displayed on the
front-panel LED. The DCT5100 is now in diagnostic mode.
Use the following keys to navigate diagnostics menus:
Press CHANNEL ▲, CHANNEL ▼, CURSOR ▲, or CURSOR ▼ to select d01 through E.
Press CURSOR ◄, CURSOR ►, SELECT or ENTER to execute the selected diagnostic.
Select E from the main menu to exit.

MAC ABORT COUNTER
The MAC ABORT COUNTER increments every time the MAC layer reaches the Cell Abort
Count limit. The MAC ABORT COUNTER is reset by the successful upstream transmission of a
cell, for example, when an ACK is received by the set-top.
If the MAC ABORT COUNTER reaches the MAC Abort Count limit, the set-top assumes the
MAC layer is unavailable due to noise, congestion, or some other problem. The set-top will stop
transmitting data upstream, report an error to the calling function, and attempt to re-enter the
network using the initialization process.
0000 is displayed as default or if the MAC ABORT COUNTER is not configured or unknown.
SOCKET PORT STATE
The SOCKET PORT STATE indicates socket mode and activity:

Troubleshooting
This section provides troubleshooting guidelines. If problems are still occurring after performing
the diagnostics, call Seaside Communications: 539-6250
Problem
Possible Solution
Remote control not responding
Check for an obstruction between the remote control and the
DCT5100.
Aim the remote control directly at the DCT5100, not the TV or VCR.
Press and release operation keys one at a time, firmly and
deliberately.
Try changing channels using the buttons on the front panel.
Check the batteries in the remote control and install new batteries if
needed.
No sound from the TV
Press MUTE on the remote control to restore sound.
Check that you have the correct cables for the audio ports.
Not receiving a cable signal
Verify that the TV set is tuned to the output channel 3 or 4 of the
DCT5100.
No Video on TV
Check that you have selected the correct video output mode. The
default mode is standard video available on RF, S-Video and
Baseband.
If you are using component video outputs, you must set the video
output to the correct format (1080i, 720p, 480p or Native). When
component outputs are selected, the other outputs will not pass
video.
