FAQ

Why do I only get channels up to Channel 13?

Most TVs have a setting to switch reception between "Off-Air" / "Antenna" and "Cable." On most TVs, the default setting is not "Cable," but that is the setting you need in order to receive all the channels on the campus television system. Please make sure your TV is set to "Cable" (or "CATV" or "HDTV," depending on the make) using the menu options. Once this setting has been changed, you may need to re-scan for channels following the instructions above.

What if my TV isn't digital?

You will need to purchase a digital tuner ($35-115) or upgrade your TV to a non-analog, newer TV ($100 for a 19"). It is likely more cost effective to bring a newer TV capable of receiving HD cable channels with you to campus.
