Most major brand flat screen TVs manufactured after 2006 support both ATSC (Advanced Television Systems Committee) and QAM (quadrature amplitude modulation) digital tuners. ATSC is used to receive digital channels over the air. QAM is used to receive digital channels from a cable TV provider without use of a cable box. Your TV must support QAM to function on the Spectrum provided ResNet HD Cable TV system.
Please be advised this is an informal reference guide and we can't guarantee or warrant the accuracy of the information provided. If you are making a TV tuner purchase decision, you are advised to carefully check the return and return shipping policies before you finalize any purchase.
A QAM tuner allows your TV to tune to digital or HD channels. Most, but not all, TV’s that were made after 2006 have a QAM tuner built in.
Experience shows the following well known name brand manufacturers typically DO provide QAM Tuner support and typically will function with the ResNet HD Cable TV system powered by Comcast.
OFTEN INCOMPATIBLE BRANDS
Experience suggests many of the following lessor brand TVs may NOT include QAM Tuner support and may NOT function with the ResNet HD Cable TV system powered by Spectrum.
If you are purchasing or already own one of the brands listed above, please verify that your model includes a QAM tuner.
COMPATIBLE QAM SET-TOP TUNERS
These would not be required unless your TV does not have a compatible QAM tuner. Experience shows the following stand-alone QAM Tuners (i.e. set-top cable boxes) are compatible with ResNet HD Cable TV system powered by Spectrum. However, we can't warrant or guarantee that set-top QAM tuners will work with your specific TV. Sometimes there are compatibility issues between the QAM tuner and specific TVs. If you choose to purchase a QAM set-top cable box, be sure you understand return policies, shipping and taxes before making any purchase decision.
