Purchased a 3500STBII from Newegg.com for the purpose of Cable QAM tuning. This will be utilize for the HDMI IN function on the new Xbox One.
I currently allow the LG to perform the "in the clear" tuning, thus I have the channel numbers mapped. After reading the numerous posts on the matter, jumped into the MANUAL tuning. I entered in a tuned channel number, saw the signal meter jump and pressed OK. This resulted in no marked channel. I then proceeded to let the unit perform an AUTO scan with no results.
The unit was setup to CABLE and USA. It currently operates V9 software and after reading the posts, I will be downgrading to V7 later this evening and will post back the results.
Any feedback on the matter will be appreciated.
So glad I found this thread, I purchased the 3500STB a few days ago for the exact same puropose you did, QAM tuning, then HDMI out from iView to HDMI in on the XB1. Currently my samsung plasma tunes my cable signal and I get about 70-80 channels.
I was expecting to be able to simply plug in my coax cable to the back of the iview and choose an "autotune" function that would tune in all of the available channels, but it seems like I might have issues doing this with the current V9 firmware?
Also, does the iView have proprietary IR codes? I am hoping the IR code database that the kinect 2.0 uses has IR codes for iView devices..... it seems as if Harmony has IR codes for iView produects, MSFT would have included iView codes in their database as well.
I'll be sure to post impressions of the unit using the XB1 on Friday.
Also, is there much of a difference between the STB and STBII?
