232-ATSC+1 Tuner recommended replacement for Extron AVT 200HD Tuner

As some of our dealers know, Extron has “retired” its AVT 200HD tuner. Extron has been gracious in recommending our Contemporary Research 232-ATSC+1 HDTV Tuner as a replacement. Actually, we offer two HDTV tuners, so we’ll clarify the features for those unfamiliar with our line.


232-ATSC+1 HDTV Tuner
This is the most direct replacement featuring:

  • Tuning of both analog and digital channels in NTSC, ATSC, and QAM formats
  • Simultaneous output of HDMI, Composite and HD RGBHV/Component video; the installer can select either the RGBHV or Component output for use

  • Scales all channels to a constant resolution of 1080i, 720p, 480p or 480i (480i not available on HDMI)
