Bismark, for the purposes of this thread, you can just consider QAM=cable. The iview can receive clear QAM cable (unencrypted digital signals) although it is not always successful.
Irdewey, the radio section is leftover in firmware because these boxes were orignally designed to be FTA satellite receivers. It has no function on the iview. However, because of the various problems the box has getting cable channels, some people find some cable channels show up as radio. People have tried various remedies without success.
Edit: Also, to Bismark, the remote depends on which box you get. Most being sold today will come with the black remote that has a limited universal remote function. The original 3500STB (without the II) will come with the original silver remote (which most people didn't like). If buying online, verify with the seller which box you are getting since some do not put the "II" in the description.
