These simple steps should get your television connected to the Georgia Tech Cable Network.
- Open up your TV's options menu.
- In your TV options, make sure the signal source is set to "Cable" and not something else, like "Air" for example.
- Run the "Auto programming" feature from the on-screen menu functions of your TV. Exactly how this is done varies from TV to TV, and if you cannot find it, you should check your TV's instruction manual for details. Other names could be "Channel Scan" or "Auto Tuning." This will cycle through every possible channel and allow "channel flipping" using your up/down channel buttons.
- Is your coaxial cable (the black cable that connects to the wall) a RG-6 Quad-shield cable? If not, you may get a weak signal, as the nearby Turner building's broadcasts tend to interfere with Georgia Tech's cable signal on weaker coaxial cables. You can buy an RG-6 Quad-shield cable at Barnes & Noble in Technology Square.
- Do you have an older TV? Many older televisions don't work correctly with GTCN, and we recommend you purchase a newer one.
