Coaxial Drop or Wall port

How To Connect

In Room Requirements:

  1. Cable TV Drop: There is usually one cable outlet per room.
  2. Coaxial Cable: You will need your own coaxial cable to connect your television to the cable receiver. Coax cables are available in the school bookstore.
  3. If you have trouble setting up channels please find your brand and model and look up your tv setup manual via google by typing this information into a search box. If you do not have this we will have trouble assisting when you call. 

Steps To Connect:

  1. Connect your coax cable to the cable connector on your data wall plate. Screw the connector clockwise until it is hand tight.
  2. Connect the other end of the coax cable to your TV.
  3. Turn your TV on and make sure it is set for Cable Television (CATV) reception, not Antenna (ANT or AIR).

To receive HDTV:

You will need to have your TV scan for these channels. Instructions on doing this vary with TV makes and models. In general:

  1. Press the “Menu” button on your Digital TV remote
  2. Go to “Setup” or “Settings”
  3. Go to “Installation” or “System” or “Channels”
  4. Go to “Scan channels”, “Program channels”, “Autoscan”, “Autoprogram”, or “Autotuning”
  5. Press “Select” or “Enter” or “OK” to start the scan

*If these general directions do not apply to your TV, try searching google or bing for specific instructions to setup/channel scan cable service for your television’s make and model.
