  1. First, identify which port is activated for cable (Please note, only 1 port will work for television in each room)
    • Kroeze: port 2
    • Neirling: port 4
    • Prentice: port 4
    • Seibold: port 2
    • Watson: port 1 (in common room)
    • Wilson: port 4
  2. In all likelihood, when you moved into your room, the ethernet cable was plugged into the appropriate port in the wall. If so, move to step 6. If not, continue to step 3.
  3. Locate your bundle. If you cannot find it, check the top dresser drawer.
  4. Unbundle your cable. It should come with a box, remote, power cable, ethernet cable, and A/V cable.
  5. Plug one end of the ethernet cable into the cable port on the wall.
  6. Plug the other end into ethernet port on the cable box.
  7. Plug the A/V cable into your TV.  You would either use Component (Blue, Green, Red for video and White, Black for audio) or Composite (Video=Yellow, Audio Left=White, Audio Right=Black),   You also have the option of using an HDMI cable which you will need to provide. If your TV does not support either type of connection, please stop by the Help Desk in Sorkness to obtain a coaxial cable, the screw in type.
  8. Plug the other end of the cable that you are using into the cable box.
  9. Plug the power into the wall.
  10. Plug the other end of the power cable into the power port on the cable box. Please note that these boxes can take up to 10 mins to boot up.
  11. If you are using A/V cables, make sure your TV channel is set to the correct input channel. Refer to your TV owner’s manual on how to do this. (i.e. AV1, Input1, etc..)
  12. If you are using an HDMI cable, the input type will likely be HDMI1, HDMI2, or etc.
  13. If you are using a coaxial cable, make sure your TV is turned to channel 3.
  14. If all is working correctly, you will see a screen with a little TV on it first
  15. Next, you will get a screen that says ‘Amino’.
  16. Next, there will be a screen which indicates a network address is being acquired. If it hangs, this is where it will hang.
  17. Finally, it will come to a screen where Guide Information is loading. If it has the correct time, all is well.
  18. If you still have issues and cannot get the cable to work correctly, please fill out a Trouble Ticket and we will assist you as soon as we are able.
