CLASSIC CABLE TV
This service does not require a digital converter box, and connects directly to your TV with a coax cable.
If you have Digital Cable or HD, you may still get Classic Cable TV on any TVs in your home that do not have a converter box. Simply connect the TV to a pre-wired cable outlet. If you need additional outlets, contact Falcon Broadband. We can add more outlets to your home for a nominal fee. With Classic Cable TV, you use your own TV remote to change the channel. No special remote controls are required or provided.
DIGITAL CABLE TV
Digital Cable TV opens your entertainment options to over 100 TV channels, almost 40 digital music channels, pay-per-view movies, and optional DVR, HD, and movie channel packages. For each TV that you connect to Digital Cable TV, you will need a digital converter box. Your first converter is included with your Digital Cable TV service. Additional converters are available for a monthly fee. The digital converter must be connected to a working cable outlet, then connected to your
TV. Your digital converter box includes a remote that controls your Digital Cable TV, and in most cases can
also be programmed to operate your TV.

HIGH DEFINITION CABLE TV
By adding HD service to your Falcon Broadband Digital Cable TV, you are able to experience the
incredible clarity and picture quality of high definition programming. To view HD programming, you must have HD service from Falcon Broadband, an HD receiver or HD DVR, and an HD television. Additionally, the HD receiver must have a HD connection to the HD TV – typically with a component video output (YPbPr), HDMI, or S-Video connection. A RF (cable) or composite video (yellow-red-white) connection will not provide HD-quality signal to the TV.

DVR (DIGITAL VIDEO RECORDER)
Your DVR Service gives you the control to pause and record live TV. The two-tuner DVR allows you to record two shows at the same time, watch one show while you record another, or watch a recorded show while recording two shows. Never miss a minute of your favorite programs! Skip commercials, pause for a run to the kitchen, or back up to see something you missed. With a DVR, you’re watching TV on your terms.
Your DVR can record a maximum of 80 hours of programming. When this limit is reached, the oldest recorded shows will be automatically deleted to make room for new shows. To prevent a show from being automatically deleted, press List to bring up the list of recorded shows, select the show, then select Protect from the on-screen menu. Some programming, such as HD programming, consumes more space on the DVR, and reduces the maximum recording hours available.

Your Digital Cable TV, HD, or DVR service can be used to limit the availability of certain programming to your home. There are two different controls which may be activated: Parental Controls, and Purchase PINs.
To begin, bring up the Main Menu on your screen by pressing the Menu button on your remote. Select Setup from the Main Menu, then select PINs. Follow the on-screen prompts to setup, clear, or change your PINs. If activated, the Purchase PIN must be entered before any pay-per-view programming may be ordered. If activated, the Parental Lock PIN must be entered before restricted programs may be viewed. To set up Parental Controls, bring up the Main Menu on your screen by pressing the Menu button on your remote. Choose Setup from the Main Menu, then select Locks. You may lock out programming by
rating, channel, and/or title.
