How to Setup Digital Cable
Make sure your TV has the proper QAM Tuner. Without a QAM tuner, you will not receive TV service. To determine whether your TV has a tuner, you will need to search the specs section of your TV manual or locate the make and model of the TV and lookup specs online. If your TV does not have an internal QAM tuner, please contact Apogee support.
When you first arrive on campus you will need a cable ready TV (with a coax input) that has a QAM tuner*, and a coax cable to connect to the campus cable TV that is provided in your room or common area.
How to Connect
All students receive the same programming automatically. Simply connect your own coaxial cable to the connection in the room and auto program your TV to receive the channels. The University does not provide coaxial cables, but you can purchase one at Laptop Central's walk-in desk.
Once you have properly connected the cable you may need to auto program your TV to the correct signal setting. If you do not do this, you may not receive all or any of the channel signals. Each TV manufacturer has a different menu, so we are unable to explain the exact steps to follow. Please refer to the manufacturer guide for your TV on how to select the signal input.
There is only one coax drop per bedroom and we do not recommend using a splitter as it may degrade your signal.
