News & Updates

**  Important Information **   Programming Format Change from Analog to All Digital

Cox Communications is moving LSU to an all digital video delivery system.
 
This change will take place May 10, 2017. If you are currently using a set-top receiver this service update will not affect your TV. 

Service outages are to be expected on the main campus from 12:00 AM - 7:00 AM on May 10th.

Prior to these dates, tune your TV to channel 706. If you are able to tune to this channel and view the programming, then your TV is capable of receiving the new digital channels without the need of a set-top box. If you cannot tune to channel 706, or if you cannot view the programming on channel 706, contact the ITS Help Desk at 578-3375.
 
On May 10th, after 7:00 A.M. you will need to do the following:
1 – Ensure your TV is connected to the Cable TV outlet.
2 – Confirm your TV is set to the correct input source. Using your TV’s remote control or the front panel on your TV, change the input or source to CABLE or CATV.
3 – Perform a TV channel scan. This varies based on the manufacturer and the TV model.
 
NOTE: Your TV User’s Manual can provide you with the all the details required on how to connect your TV, change the input source, and perform a channel scan.


Is Action Required?

      • Please Note:  The Set-Top Box (DTA) the is provided is programmed to ONLY work on the LSU On-Campus CATV System.
  • Newer Televisions already have a built-in QAM Tuner:
    • No Cable Set-Top Box (DTA) Required.
    • If your television was manufactured in 2006 or later, it already has a built-in in QAM Tuner. 
       
  • Both Older & Newer Televisions:
    • Either way, you will need to take action after the conversion is complete.
      • Make some changes to your TV and Re-scan the channels.
