<< Back to DTC-100 Tips
Tip by Ken Fowler: "In the
past, one of the most frequent criticisms of the RCA DTC-100 has been its inability to
save service menu changes to raster adjustment.
For those not familiar the issue; when the RCA DTC100 HDTV set-top box is used with
certain non-RCA televisions, the high-definition picture is not correctly centered
Horizontal centering can be corrected through the DTC100's service menu; unfortunately,
in the past, there was no known method to preserve these adjustments -- they would reset
to the default when the unit was turned off.
I have now been informed that the DTC-100 can indeed save service menu changes to
- Enter the service menu by pushing and holding down both the info and down-arrow buttons
on the DTC100 front panel (not remote); scroll down to the last item for raster
adjustment. (Warning: Do not mess with other service menu settings unless you know
specifically what you are doing.)
- Perform the needed raster changes to center the picture.
- Once the position is established, the unit should be unplugged briefly before the output
mode is changed. By unplugging, the data is burned into EEPROM.
