WVU provides students living in residence halls an incredible HD cable TV package. To make sure you can take advantage of this fantastic service, keep these things in mind:
o enjoy HD cable television in your residential rooms, you must have an HD TV
a digital tuner either built in or as a separate unit.
- Not all HD TV
s have a built in digital tuner, and some older ones that do won’t work with
the newest cable systems.
- Old-style CRT (tube) TV
will not work with these new digital HD services.
- If your TV does not have a digital tuner built in, or is an older model that
is not compatible with the system used by WVU, we recommend two options: the
ChannelMaster CM-7004 (available at Walmart and Amazon) or Pico Digital HD 2
(available online from multiple vendors).
- Make sure to bring a coax cable
you have to purchase the standalone digital tuner. We provide one coax cable
to each student, but you need an extra one to connect a standalone tuner to
