- To program your specific TV, please search the make and model of your TV on the Internet to find the most recent version of instructions.
- When tuning directly to digital TV channels you must enter the channel number and “.1” or “-1”. Example “50-1” or “50.1”.
If you are experiencing issues receiving channels, your TV may not have the required QAM digital tuner.
We suggest completing an online search of the manufacturer’s name and exact model number to find your TV’s manual or specifications. If the documentation includes the terms QAM, Clear QAM, QAM 256 or QAM capable, your TV tuner should be compatible with the Cable TV system. However, many manufacturer’s (including well known top brands) who support QAM tuners often don’t include any reference to their QAM support.
If you’re TV isn’t supported, you may choose to purchase a set-top QAM Tuner, replace your TV, or elect to use xfinityoncampus.com. You can purchase QAM set-top tuners from popular retailers, such as Amazon, Walmart, Newegg, etc.
