SAFETY
INFORMATION
OTHER WARNINGS
To ensure you use this product safely,
please read all the safety information
included in this document.
This digital adapter has been manufactured
and tested with your safety in mind. However,
improper use can result in potential electric
shock or fire hazards. To avoid defeating
the safeguards that have been built into
your digital adapter, please observe the
precautions discussed in this document.
Never place naked flame sources, such as
lighted candles, on or adjacent to your digital
adapter.
The model number, serial number and
electrical rating of your digital adapter are on
a label on its base.
Warnings
•
•
•
•
Do not remove the cover of your
digital adapter. There are no userserviceable parts inside it.
Do not perform any servicing
unless you are qualified to do
so by Pace. Refer all servicing
to qualified service personnel.
Servicing the digital adapter
yourself will invalidate the
warranty.
On the rear panel of your digital
adapter there is a tamper-evident
label that states “Warranty void if
broken or removed”.
To reduce the risk of fire or
electric shock, do not expose
your digital adapter to rain or
moisture.
Risk of fire or scorching
Ambient temperature
The operating temperature range of your
digital adapter is 32-104°F. If the ambient
temperature around your digital adapter
falls outside this range, you must correct
this in order for your digital adapter to work
correctly and safely. For example, if the
temperature is too high, switch on the air
conditioning.
Ventilation
Slots and openings in the casing of your
digital adapter are provided for ventilation,
to ensure reliable operation of your digital
adapter and to protect it from overheating.
• Never block the ventilation openings by
placing your digital adapter on a bed,
sofa, rug or other similar surface.
• Never cover the ventilation openings with
items such as newspapers, table-cloths
or curtains.
CAUTION
Do not attempt to modify your digital
adapter without written authorization
from the manufacturer. Unauthorized
modification could void your authority
to operate your digital adapter.
SAVE THIS INFORMATION FOR FUTURE
REFERENCE
REGULATORY
INFORMATION
NOTE
Your digital adapter has been tested and
found to comply with the limits for a Class
B digital device, pursuant to Part 15 of
the FCC Rules. These limits are designed
to provide reasonable protection against
harmful interference in a residential
installation. Your digital adapter
generates, uses and can radiate radiofrequency energy and, if not installed and
used in accordance with the instructions,
may cause harmful interference to radio
communications.
However, there is no guarantee that
interference will not occur in a particular
installation. If your digital adapter does
cause harmful interference to radio
or television reception, which can be
determined by turning your digital adapter
off and on, you are encouraged to try to
correct the interference by one or more of
the following measures:
• Reorient or relocate the receiving
antenna.
• Increase the separation between your
digital adapter and the receiver.
• Connect your digital adapter to an
outlet on a circuit different from that to
which the receiver is connected.
• Consult your dealer or an experienced
radio/TV technician for help.
CONNECTING TO THE
AC POWER SUPPLY
You must not plug your digital adapter into
the power supply until you have connected
your digital adapter to the other equipment in
your system.
Your digital adapter itself is designed for use
only with the supplied power supply unit.
On the power supply unit there is a label that
specifies the correct AC power supply input
for it. Do not connect the power supply unit
to any supply other than this.
Always connect the 5 volt DC cord from the
power supply unit to your digital adapter
before you insert the power supply unit into
the wall AC outlet.
To disconnect power from your digital
adapter, always remove the power supply unit
from the wall AC outlet (i.e. not by removing
the 5 volt cord from your digital adapter).
Therefore you must install your digital
adapter near to the wall AC outlet, which
should be easily accessible.
If you are in any doubt about the
power supply lead, its plug or its
connection, consult a qualified
electrician.
Warnings on the power supply unit
CAUTION
RISK OF ELECTRIC SHOCK
DO NOT OPEN
The lightning flash with arrowhead symbol, within a triangle, is intended to alert
you to the presence of uninsulated “dangerous” voltages within the power supply
unit’s enclosure that may be of sufficient magnitude to constitute a risk of electric
shock to persons.
The exclamation point within a triangle is intended to alert you to the presence of
important instructions in the literature accompanying your set-top
Avertissements affichés sur le bloc d’alimentation
CAUTION
RISK OF ELECTRIC SHOCK
DO NOT OPEN
Le symbole représentant un éclair dans un triangle a pour but de vous avertir de
la présence de tensions “dangereuses” non isolées à l’intérieur du châssis du

Introducing the Pace Digital Transport Adapter (DTA)
Enclosed you will find your new Pace digital adapter.
This device allows you to receive your channels in full digital format, which
improves both the overall sound and picture quality.
You should connect your digital adapter to any television that has cable service
connected but does not have a digital cable box.
Televisions that already have a digital cable box installed do not require a
digital adapter.
By following the instructions in this guide, you will be able to install your
digital adapter with relative ease.
BEFORE YOU BEGIN
• Read all the safety information in this guide.
• Check you have all the things you need (see ‘What’s in the box?’).
• Familiarize yourself with the front and rear panels of your digital adapter
(see ‘About your Digital adapter’).
• Before connecting any cables, choose a suitable position for your digital adapter,
observing the ventilation requirements set out in the safety information above.
• Follow the instructions overleaf to install your digital adapter correctly.
Remember, you will need access to a working electrical outlet.
• You may want to secure your digital adapter with the enclosed adhesive
fasteners. However, be careful that the adhesive doesn’t damage the
surface to which you are attaching the fastener, as your cable company will
not be responsible for any damage.
• Any problems? Consult the ‘Solving Problems’ table overleaf.
