Qi3 Cable Set-Top / IP Client

ATSC, HEVC, HD Set-Top with MoCA®2.0 & TiVo®

The Qi3 (DCX860) is compact, low cost solution for delivering the TiVo® User Experience to your subscribers.

The Qi3 is a hybrid device that can function as a standalone HD set-top box using DTA security for the delivery of linear content. Alternatively, it can function as an IP Client (TiVo Mini) to a TiVo video gateway on the home network.

As a standalone HD set-top, the Qi3 is a cost effective solution for single outlet HD subscribers. It also offers the versatility to function as an IP video client for subscribers that look to extend the TiVo® DVR experience to multiple outlets in the home.

The integrated MoCA® 2.0 home networking interface allows it to serve as a high-speed multimedia client via existing coaxial cables in walls for receiving content from other compatible devices in the home, creating an IP home network without having to install new wiring. This delivers whole home networking for service like Multi-Room DVR.

The Qi3 has a diminutive enclosure measuring just 6.2”W x 4.1”D x 1.1”H. With support of the RF4CE remote control protocol, line of sight to the Qi3 is not required. These features offer consumers flexibility in the placement of the device.

TiVo Integration

The Qi3 runs the full TiVo application software stack. This includes support for standard TiVo features such as integrated search across linear channels and streaming applications. In Mini mode, it offers all the capabilities of TivoHD Minis and it can interoperate with multiple ARRIS video gateways that support TiVo.
