Does the DTC100 natively receive digital cable or does it require an additional box from the cable service provider?


TIA,

It still requires the cable box since the DTC-100 doesn't have the circuitry to decode the digital cable signals, but it will get the analog ones!

In a word . . . "No".


The various digital cable formats don't following the ATSC standards at all by what I understand. You'll need the cable provider's digital cable box.


That's the nice thing about standards . . . there are so many to choose from. ;-)



If you have a DTC-100, may I suggest dropping your cable provider and subscribing to DirecTV . . . you already have the receiver.
