Description

H- THUNDER- Supports up to 8 HDMI inputs and its modular design (maximum 8 HDMI inputs) and flexible configuration makes it scalable and very reliable while providing high performance.

The signal source could be from any STB, satellite receiver, closed-circuit television cameras and antenna etc. Its output signal is designed to work with any TV or STB. Because it comes standard with every RF modulation standard builtin, this device can work anywhere in the world in a plug and play format. 

This unit is similar to our popular line H-1,2,4 HDMI-QAM-IPLL product line, but it has some differences .It is a less expensive unit, each program is modulated on its own frequency , CATV RF output only, no IPTV output

Question and Answers
Answer:
No, the 4channel HDMI modulator H-THUNDER-4 has separate Channels for each input but it can be any channel, for example, 2,20,50 99, there is control of each individual channel. Do you need to Multiplex (MUX) all 4 TS programs on one physical frequency (One RF 6Mhz channel)? QAM 236 contains 38Mps data, so you can multiplex 4 programs encoded at 9Mbps each or 8 programs encoded at 4.5Mbps We have different 4 or 12channel unit available https://thorbroadcast.com/product/4-hdmi-component-hd-to-coax-and-iptv-hd-8230.html/21 https://thorbroadcast.com/product/catv-rf-modulator-hdmi-multiplexer.html/37
Answer:
Yes, I just checked online, the Tivo has ATSC tuner, The modulator sends QAM or ATSC, it is selectable, it will be compatible with a Tivo
Answer:
The best way to convert 28 HDMI / SDI to QAM would be using H-HYBRID-RF-8 Modulator, it has 8 independent switchable SDI / HDMI inputs : https://thorbroadcast.com/product/8-channel-hdmi-and-sdi-clear-catv-rf-modulator-qam-8230.html For optical RF coax over a fiber we recommend to use the following devices : Fiber OTx https://thorbroadcast.com/product/32-mw-catv-rf-over-fiber-tx-45-870-mhz.html Fiber Rx Rack https://thorbroadcast.com/product/catv-rf-fiber-receiver-high-rf-power-rack-8230.html F-PLC-1x8 https://thorbroadcast.com/product/1-x-2-to-1-x-128-fiber-optic-couplers.html/226 The main thing I want to point out is that these are all 1310nm; will only work in the CATV band 45-870Mhz for QAM 256 If you are sending L-band (which is satellite TV) in the band 1400-2800Mhz I'm somewhat familiar with the Foxcom stuff, but I just checked the specs on their unit, it uses 1510-1610nm wavelength; so this would not be compatible. If you have different information then what I just read online then please let me know. We have similar, more sophisticated L-band gear https://thorbroadcast.com/product/6-ch-l-band-over-single-fiber-extender-54-3000mhz-cwdm.html And ours is not compatible with the lower band RF CATV gear because they operate in different bands, furthermore, you can not connect a CWDM receiver, like ours or Foxcoms, to a fiber link that is using a single laser, in the different wavelengths. Please give me a call if you'd like to discuss, if you'd like a BOM for the equipment above for a distribution system for point to multipoint let me know.
