Pace Set Top Box Instructions

By Maya Austen

Pace makes digital set-top boxes for a variety of pay-TV market service providers, such as Comcast Cable. When you subscribe to a cable service, your set-top box is often installed by the cable provider's technician. If you need to disconnect your Pace set-top box, you don't need to call your cable technician to reconnect the box. You can perform this on your own.

Things You'll Need

  • Set of A/V cables
  • 75 Ohm coaxial cable

Setup Using A/V Cables

Step 1

Connect the coaxial cable wire coming from the wall, this cable carries the main cable TV signal, into the RF-in connector labeled "Cable In" on the back of the Pace set-top box.

Step 2

Plug one end of the red A/V cable into the red "R" "Audio Out" jack on the back of the Pace set-top box. Plug one end of the white A/V cable into the white "L" "Audio Out" jack on the back of the Pace set-top box. Plug one end of the yellow A/V cable into the yellow "Video Out" jack on the back of the Pace set-top box.

Step 3

Follow the same pattern as you connect the other end of each A/V cable to an A/V-in panel on the TV.

Step 4

Plug the TV's power cable into the "Power Outlet" on the back of the Pace set-top box.

Step 5

Connect the power cable, which came with the Pace set-top box, to the "Power Input" port on the back of the set-top box. Plug the set-top box's power cable into a power strip or wall outlet.

Tips & Warnings

  • If you're also looking to hook up a VCR or DVD recorder along with the Pace set-top box, perform Step 1 from either section. The remaining connection configuration is:
  • The Pace set-top box's signal output goes to the corresponding input on the VCR or DVD recorder. The VCR or DVD recorder's signal output goes to the corresponding input on the TV.
  • Make sure the TV and VCR or DVD recorder are set to Channel 3 if you used coaxial cables to make your connections. Make sure the video input channel on both the TV and VCR or DVD recorder are set to the proper input source if using A/V cables to make your connections.
