Inputs and Outputs
The TUE-T151 is a compact UHF/VHF TV tuner which
allows you to view TV stations on your Alpine Multimedia unit, Alpine video monitor or non-Alpine display with RCA A/V inputs. An optional remote eye (item 500KRE500E) is required to control the tuner when it is used with non-Alpine equipment. The tuner includes two amplified dual antenna units and a switching diversity system to
give you the best reception possible.

function will scan the entire TV broadcast band and store the receivable
channels into preset memory.
Tuning Modes: You can manually
tune up or down the channels one by one. You can also activate the seek tuning
mode which tunes up or down and stops at the next available channel. The preset
tuning mode allows you to tune the preset channels stored using the Channel Scan

includes two powered dual antenna units, each with two antenna plugs. The
antennas can be installed in the vehicle's rear window (or rear side windows of

built-in 4-Channel Diversity system constantly monitors the incoming signals
from the four antenna inputs, and selects the best available signal.
