How do I program my digital TV to receive all the University channels?
If you have a digital TV not connected to a cable receiver, it is important to auto program your TV to ensure you are viewing all the available analog and digital channels. Exact details on how to auto program or auto tune digital TVs vary from manufacturer to manufacturer and from model to model. These instructions are generalizations that are meant to describe the way most TVs accomplish this feature. For best results, refer to the owner’s manual for the specific TV you are working with. Most TVs will take between 20-45 minutes to complete this function.
Using the TVs remote control, follow these general steps:
Step 1: Press the “Power” button to turn on the TV
Step 2: Press the “Menu” Button
Step 3: Select “Set-Up”
Step 4: Select “Antenna” then “Cable”
Step 5: Select “Auto Program/Auto Tune” then “OK”
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. Campus Televideo has tested and recommends the Technicolor DCI 401n which can be purchased with a credit card through our website for $136 (including shipping & handling). Note - The unit has an analog output via a RF connector (coax). All standard definition and high definition channels will pass through the converter and display on an analog television. Your high definition (HD) channels will be scaled down and will not be in a true HD format but will be viewable.
If you experience trouble upon reprogramming your TV please contact the help desk at 425-4000 and a technician will be advised to provide support.
