TV system wiring design, upgrades and troubleshooting
With the shift to digital QAM replacing outdated analog systems many properties may find wiring issues they never knew existed. Poor connectors, outdated coax cable, amplifiers which do not pass all frequencies, an unknown cable paths are typical. As renovations were made over the years or vendors and staff changed it is common to have lapses in documentation. Isolating problems can be challenging. Frequently no one really knows where every amplifies, splitter is located or how wiring is routed. Upgrading to a new digital system can be full of surprises but doesn’t have to be with advance planning. Systematic evaluation and troubleshooting is required in what sometimes can be a tedious process but necessary for the end result—crisp clear HD pictures that your patients will enjoy.
