Turn off Title/Time/Date text display on all channels.


To clear the time/data titling overlay from the CM9760-MDA Master Distribution Amplifier video outputs perform the following steps:

1. Unplug the CM9760-MDA power cord.

2. Set the MDA to unit ID 33:

     a. Set DIP switches 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 7 and 8 to the OFF/UP position

     b. Set DIP switch 6 to the ON/DOWN position.

3. Plug in the CM9760-MDA power cord.

4. A 30-second timer starts - before the 30 seconds elapses (18-20 seconds has proven to be effective), set DIP switch 6 to the OFF/UP position.

After 30 seconds have elapsed, the CM9760-MDA checks whether the unit ID is different from the initial setting of 33. If the unit ID has changed, the CM9760-MDA title/time/date text display is cleared.

Note:  The DIP Switch is located on the back of the CM9760-MDA.

  • OFF = UP
  • ON = DOWN
