How do I make my analog TV work on the school’s digital cable system?
If you have an older analog television and your school cable system is digital, your television cannot receive the signal without use of a digital-to-analog converter box. You may purchase an NTSC Clear QAM tuner digital-to-analog converter box anywhere that you shop for electronics. These boxes vary in price from $40.00 to $100.00.
If you need help or consultation on digital-to-analog converter boxes; please contact 425-4000, and a Cable Technician will contact you.
Please Note: QAM tuners are better for out cable system over ATSC tuners. Be sure to check your TV to verify that it has a QAM tuner as only limited models have a QAM tuner and others do not have them at all. UTC cannot guarantee the accuracy of this information and you should verify the specifications when you make a purchase.
