Our take on the Channel Master CM6000

by Tara W.
Channel Master

Many of today's TVs, Blu-ray players, and game consoles let you access content available from the Internet, but some of them don't come with built-in Wi-Fi® adapters. If your home is already wired with coaxial RF cable for distributing TV signals, then Channel Master's CM6000 is a great solution — it lets you pass an Ethernet signal through the existing coaxial cables and jacks in your home.

This kit comes with two adapters. Connect one to your modem or router and a nearby coaxial wall jack. Plug the other adapter into a coaxial jack in the same room as your networkable device and connect it to your TV, Blu-ray player, or game console. The two adapters connect automatically, bringing the Internet to another room in your home.

In addition to enabling a PC network connection, the CM6000 system simultaneously passes TV signals to your set-top box or television. That means you can still use that same coaxial wall outlet to enjoy TV programming in the room where you've installed this system.

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 over Coax Alliance (MoCA) is the universal standard for home 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.

  • RF Coax Connectors: Each Channel Master Internet-to-TV coax adapter is equipped with a RF Coax input (Cable In) with a female F-type connector, and RF Coax output (TV out) with a female F-type connector. The RF Coax input connects to the RF coaxial cable outlet from your wall. The RF Coax output then connects to your TV or SAT/Cable box. The Channel Master CM-6000 will work with RG6, RG59, or RG11 coax cables (sold separately).
  • Ethernet Port: Each Internet-to-TV coax adapter is equipped with a single Ethernet (RJ-45) port. One Internet-to-TV coax adapter is connected to your home network's modem/router. The other Internet-to-TV coax adapter is connected to your Internet enabled TV, DVR, Blu-ray player, or game console. The CM-6000 supports Cat5e or higher Ethernet cable (two 4' Ethernet cables are supplied).

Note: The Channel Master CM-6000 Internet-to-TV Coax Adapter Kit will support cable and/or DSL high-speed internet services. Dish Network and DirecTV Satellite services will require a coax-splitter from the wall and a separate coax cable run.

Status LED Lights: The LED lights located on the front-panel of each Internet-to-TV coax adapter indicate the status of the Ethernet network (Network), coaxial network (c.Link), and power connection (Power).

AC Power Adapter: The Channel Master CM-6000 Internet-to-TV Adapter Kit operates off of standard household AC current, using the supplied AC power adapters.

Mounting Options: Each Internet-to-TV coax adapter features four integrated rubber feet to place the device on a flat table-top surface. There are also two keyhole slots that allow you to wall-mount the unit.
