WSSU Campus Cable Channel Information and Tuner Requirements
The Campus Cable system has 134 channels. Channels 2 to 35 (channels 17 – 20 do not carry programming) are received by an analog tuner (NTSC) and channels 36-1 to 69-2 require a digital tuner (QAM). The lineup was configured by Time/Warner for WSSU and is different from the commercial lineup available in Winston-Salem/Forsyth County.
To setup a TV to the current channel lineup, you can access the menu and run a channel scan/setup.
If a TV set does not have a digital tuner, you will need to connect an external QAM channel converter to receive the full campus channel lineup.
Please note that ATSC is the digital format for over-the-air digital broadcast, QAM is the format for digital cable channels. Check the specifications on your TV to confirm the internal tuner for your set and the channel setup procedure.
If your TV is not picking up the digital cable channels you will need to add an external tuner/converter that supports QAM/ClearQAM signals or replace the TV with one that is cable ready with both tuners.
