Overview: The Channel Master CM-6000 Internet-to-TV
Coax Adapter Kit is an easy-to-install solution providing an internet connection
to any of the coax cable outlets in your home. Many new TV's, SAT/Cable boxes,
Blu-ray players, and game consoles now have internet capabilities and need to be
connected to the Internet. After getting these products home you may find it
difficult to connect them to the internet, because you may not have an Ethernet
jack by your television or component. With most homes prewired with coax to
nearly all rooms, Channel Master's Internet-to-TV Coax adapter Kit (CM-6000) is
the perfect solution.
Note: The Channel Master CM-6000 Internet-to-TV Coax Adapter Kit
consists of two Channel Master CM-6001 Internet-to-TV Coax Adapters.
Additional CM-6001 Internet-to-TV Coax Adapters (6596001,
sold separately) can be purchased to expand your Internet connection to
additional Internet-ready devices in other rooms of your home (up to 16).
MoCA 1.1 Compliance: The Channel Master CM-6000 Internet-to-TV Coax
Kit is MoCA 1.1 compliant. The Multimedia

entertainment networking. MoCA is the only home entertainment networking
standard in use by all three pay TV segments (Cable, Satellite, & IPTV). The
current MoCA specification can support multiple streams of HD or SD video, deliver up
to 175 Mbps net throughputs and offer an unparalleled user experience via
parameterized quality of service (PQoS).
Internet-to-TV Connections: Simply connect one adapter (CM-6001) to your modem and coax network,
then connect the second Adapter (CM-6001) to your coax network in another room
where internet connection is desired. The Internet-to-TV adapters have been
designed to allow the home network or internet signal to ride along the same
coax as your cable television or terrestrial antenna signals with no
interference. This is the most reliable solution without installing new wires
and best of all its affordable and easy to install.
