This installation guide is easy to use and will get you started with your HDTV.
If you requested no-contact installation, your installer will complete the work outside your home and will assist you over the phone. You and your installer will follow the step-by-step process together to get your video services connected and set up.
What you'll learn:
Step 1: Connecting your converter box
Connect one end of the coaxial cable to the wall outlet and the other end to the “Cable In” (or “RF IN”) connection on the back of the converter box.
