Channel Master CM6001
Add-on adapter for Internet-to-TV coaxial kit
Item # 6596001 | MFR # 6001

Our take on the Channel Master CM6001 by Crutchfield's Tara W.
This add-on adapter works with Channel Master's Internet-to-TV coaxial kit. Plug it into an available coaxial RF wall jack, and it'll automatically connect to other adapters in your home. Use multiple adapters to bring a consistent, high-speed network signal to TVs, A/V receivers, game consoles and computers throughout your home.
In addition to enabling a PC network connection, this adapter 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-6001 Internet-to-TV Coax Adapter is an easy-to-install add-on device for the Channel Master CM-6000 Internet-to-TV Coax Adapter Kit (6596000, sold separately). The Channel Master CM-6001 provides an additional Internet connection to another TV, SAT/Cable box, Blu-ray player, or game console in another room of your home. You can connect up to 16 Channel Master Internet-to-TV devices to your home network.
MoCA 1.1 Compliance: The Channel Master CM-6001 Internet-to-TV Coax Adapter 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).
RF Coax Connectors: The Channel Master CM-6001 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-6001 will work with RG6, RG59, or RG11 coax cables (sold separately).
Note: Dish Network and DirecTV Satellite services will require a coax-splitter from the wall and a separate coax cable run.
Ethernet Port: The Channel Master CM-6001 Internet-to-TV Coax Adapter is equipped with a single Ethernet (RJ-45) port. The device's Ethernet port connects to your Internet enabled TV, DVR, Blu-ray player, or game console. The CM-6001 supports Cat5e or higher Ethernet cable (4' Ethernet cable supplied).

The Channel Master CM6001 is an add-on adapter for Channel Master's Internet-to-TV coaxial kit. That kit has been discontinued but it came with 2 adapters included; one connects to your modem or router and a nearby coaxial wall jack. You would 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, so there wouldn't be anyway for someone to tap-in to that connection unless they also had the same Channel Master adapter as well as access to your existing coaxial wiring.

I forwarded your question to an Advisor and they responded with the following: The Channel Master networking pieces will definitely work with the Yamaha receiver. However, you need the CM6104 to begin with not just the CM6001. You can add additional rooms to the CM6104 using the CM6001. If you would like to discuss further you can contact an Advisor directly by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat. [ Krissy Apr 02, 2015 ] Staff
