Use any Blu Ray player with the HDfurry to convert HDMI to component.

Does anyone know how to get the BOCs distribution signal on a TV utilizing a CableCARD? I have yet to find a way around this.

So I know this product is pretty much dead but I am installing my old unit in a parent's house and can't seem to find my installation instructions/device code list. Unfortunately the website appears to be down and I was wondering if anyone out there happens to have saved the old .pdf files and could shoot them to me.


Thanks in advance.

I took a serious look at BOCS a few years ago, but unfortunately didn't archive any of the relevant literature. You're right about the web site being down, but BOCS did have some business ties to another company called Amperor (sales or marketing outfit???) ....and they still have a few of the BOCS docs posted:

http://www.amperordirect.com/pc/r-product-support/z-reference-bocs-mediahub.html

....they have many (dead) links to Bocsco.com, but there still are a couple of documents on the Amperor site that might give you some pointers, such as http://www.amperordirect.com/mm5/website_v3/products/bocs/BOCS%20Application%20Notebook.pdf .....but the real nugget may be that there are still several live links to YouTube vids, showing install details, that are still up and running.

So....not exactly what you were asking for, but maybe you'll find something usable.

It's a shame to hear about BOCS' demise - the "Head BOCS" dude, David, came across as a knowledgeable and stand-up guy - tough market, I guess!

Just wanted to say thanks. I had found the amperor direct website but not the videos. They had helped but I still needed codes. Luckily one of my kids showed me where he had "organized" the papers and I found them. Thanks again for the help. Too bad the HD version never materialized....it's a pretty cool product.

And if anyone stumbles across this and needs the documents just let me know.

You're wlecome. I figured you'd probably found the Amperor site, but posted the links just in case you hadn't.

Yup, the lack of HD capabilities did seem to be the final nail in the coffin - I know that there were difficulties with obtaining "HD chips" - shame, good product.

Can BOCS be used with Uverse STB's? Are there remote codes to match the AT&T remotes?

Does anyone have access to the PDF documents on the myxtender.com website?  I'm trying to set up a second xtender and need some additional info that can be found in the "Second BOCS.pdf" document, but I cannot find it anywhere.  specifically I'm trying to figure out how to pair the remote to a second BOCS.

 

Thanks!

I have the "Second BOCS Install" PDF.

Programming:
Once you have things wired up (and double checked to make sure that two DC
power feeds are not using the same wire), you need to program your system to
use alternate channels as well as how to recognize both BOCS systems.

The shift button is critical in all these efforts – any programming sequence can be
directed at the second BOCS unit by simply pressing and releasing the shift
button (yellow up arrow) on the remote prior to entering a programming
sequence. For instance, to pair a remote with a BOCS device, you hit the pair
button on the front of a BOCS unit (all three lights will begin to flash), and within
15 seconds you press and hold “Menu” and “CH+” on a BOCS remote. The
remote will flash 3 times indicating a successful pairing. Now when you press a
red, green, or blue button on the BOCS remote, the corresponding color light on
the front of the BOCS unit will blink.

To pair a remote (the same remote) to a second BOCS unit, you press the pair
button on the front of the second BOCS unit then press shift then hold down
“Menu” and “CH+” on the BOCS remote. The power light should blink 3 times on
the second BOCS unit indicating success.


Now if you press “RED”, the red light on the first BOCS unit should flash and if
you press “SHIFT” then “RED”, the red light on the second BOCS unit should
flash. Note that few people get the binding to work right the first time – usually
accidentally binding the normal and shifted on the remote to the same unit. The
key is pressing shift then pressing “MENU” and “CH+” at EXACTLY the same
time.

Now if you are trying to program the IR code for the Red channel on the second
BOCS you press “SHIFT”, then hold down “RED” and “INFO” at the same time
(likewise for any other command)

We recommend leaving the first BOCS unit on the default channels and changing
only the channels on the second BOCS. If you are putting it on 76, 78, and 80,
then you would: Press shift, then press and hold “RED” and “CH-“ until the
power light comes on then enter the channels all together three digits each
“076078080” and press “OK”. The power light will blink twice to indicate
success. If you have the correct code programmed into the “LOCAL-TV” button
for the TV you are in front of, pressing “RED” should change the TV to 14 and
pressing “SHIFT” then “RED” should change the TV to 76.

Repeaters:
If you are using two BOCS units, a repeater must be bound to both of them. The
process is identical but you have to do it for each BOCS unit. Press the “PAIR”
button on the front of the BOCS unit then plug the repeater into
a wall outlet within 20 feet of the BOCS unit. Wait for the BOCS lights to stop
flashing (approximately 10 seconds) and unplug the repeater from the wall. Then
you can bind to the second BOCS unit in the same manner and then move the
repeater to the desired location to cover the extended area.

I as looking into something using this product, but is this company still in business or are they pretty much dead? I haven't see ANY updates on the website (in maybe years) so I am thinking any kind of HD distribution equipment from them (like they state on the site) is a moot point & not going to happen.

Yep, have to assume it's a dead project... HD distribution is becoming less useful for most folks, as the combination of "whole house DVR" and inexpensive streaming devices have made major strides and provide more functionality with none of the hassles of distributed video.
