    OAT100R Product Description The LG CodePlus™ OAT100R Off Air Transcoder System provides a flexible solution for system providers who provide terrestrial delivered DTV content to commercial facilities (hotels, hospitals, etc.). The OAT100R incorporates eight RF tuners that receive up to eight off air DTV channels from the terrestrial broadcast service.

  • Page 8: Setup Information

    Setup Information This document provides installation and setup support only for the OAT100R. One or more VHF and/or UHF antennas must be installed before you proceed to set up the OAT100R. LG recommends that the system be professionally installed. Check the following items before you begin the OAT100R installation and setup procedures.

    Setup Information (Cont.) channels will be 95, 96, and 97. Refer to EIA-542 STD CATV frequency allocation tables for further information as required. The highest available RF channel number for the OAT100R is 135. Thus, to allocate all four channels available for OAT100R RF output, the RF start channel must be set no higher than 132.

  • Page 10: Packet Identifiers (pids) Overview

    Packet Identifiers (PIDs) Overview Each RF channel has five or more associated PIDs assigned in a hierarchy (see diagram below), and the content of each RF channel is carried in a transport stream. The transport stream is a packet-based protocol, where each packet has a PID that is used to uniquely identify packets for particular purposes (video, audio, etc.).
