I am interested in setting the major channels on my Drake unit, but don’t want to confuse the customers with the minor channel number. Is there any way around this?

The Drake products now allow the setting of the one-part channel numbers as well as the standard Major/Minor number combo. It is done for all units that support setting of the numbers (DQT861/1000, MQM861/1000, MQM6000L, MEQ1000, and EH24). You set it on the same form where you have always set the Major/Minor number in the Drake Digital Headend Program. The only important note is that this one-part number is only valid when the unit is set to output the CVCT. It is not valid in a TVCT. The number can be set anywhere from 1 to 16383.
