Environment

  • CM9760-CXTA Coaxitron Translator
  • CM9700-CC1 (CPU Controller)
  • 3rd party DVR (Digital Video Recorder)

Cause

The CM9700-CC1 was connected to the CM9760-CXTA Coaxitron Translator on the data in port.

The Digital Video Recorder was connected to the CM9760-CXTA Coaxitron Translator on the data out port.

Resolution

The data out port on the CM9760-CXTA Coaxitron Translator is reserved for connecting a second CM9760-CXTA Coaxitron Translator.

The use of a CM9760-DMR Data Merger/Manager is recommended to supervise multiple controlling devices to a single outputting piece of equipment.
