Major / Minor channel numbers ( also called VCT virtual channel table ) are the DESTINATION POSITION on your TV CHANNEL LIST for each of your VeCOAX channel

If you set MAJOR = 1   MINOR = 1  on your VeCOAX for a specific channel,  that will show on your TV when you select NUMBER 1 on your tv.

the purpose of the Minor is to position this channel in a certain sub-position, in case you are receiving OTHER tv stations numbered #1

1.1  my minimod one

1.2  my minimod two

1.3  my minimod three

1.4  my minimod four

etc

In this case, on your TV remote control you can recall the button #1 plus again another button for the sub-channel


Typically you use the MAJOR as DIRECT CHANNEL NUMBER to recall on your tv remote control, and keep the minor always equal to 1 so the tv will not even use it in case there is only one signal for that channel

1.1 my minimod one

2.1 my minimod two

3.1 my minimod three

25.1 my minimod xxxxx


this way, if you press button 1 on your TV remote, it will show the 1.1   and if you press button 3 will show  3.1 - DIRECT RECALL


IMPORTANT:  THE DESTINATION MEMORY NUMBERS ( MAJOR/MINOR - vct as above ) ARE TOTALLY INDEPENDENT FROM THE USED COAXIAL FREQUENCY

YOU CAN PUT ANY MODULATOR ON ANY OF THE AVAILABLE FREQUENCIES, DIFFERENT EACH-OTHER UNIT BY UNIT SO THEY DOES NOT JAM THE SIGNAL EACH-OTHERS

BUT FREQUENCIES ARE JUST THE CARRIERS FOR THE DIGITAL TV DATA.   THE DESTINATION MEMORY NUMBER IS ONLY SET VIA THE MAJOR/MINOR NUMBERS AS EXPLAINED ABOVE
