  • In most cases, you can simply connect a coax (RF) cable from the wall plate to your TV. When you turn your tv on, it should automatically find and display the available channels.
  • If this does not work, enter the menu on your TV and select the option to Search for Channels. (This may be called, "Find Channels,"Program Channels", or something along those lines.
  • If you still do not receive any channels, enter the menu on your tv and reset the antenna selection to CATV. Then, select Search for Channels (as in the previous step).
  • If you still are having problem contact the IT HelpDesk.
