LINC-TV -- your devices need to be "Clear QAM"

LINC-TV is now operating on the Clear QAM industry standard.  Make sure the words “Clear QAM tuner" are listed on the make & model of your television, otherwise you will need to purchase a digital set top box to act as an interface to your older TV.   

If you have questions about what to purchase, please contact Terry Benton, Cable TV Manager, LINC-TV Services, Santa Clara University 408-551-1746, or
