    I live in residence, and have no TV in my room, so I was thinking of buying this... CLICK ME!

    But the problem is, I don't think I have a cable jack in my room. I might... but WHAT IS THIS I HAVE ONE OF THESE IN MY ROOM?

    [​IMG]

    Is there possibly cable behind it?

    And if the answer is no, then I was thinking of buying one of these... CLICK ME!

    Now, they seem great and all, but my question is... will these be affected by the switch to DTV? I know antenna TVs are affected, but do these count?

    You won't get electrocuted. If you don't have TV in your room, odds are there isn't a signal even if there is a cable.

    Suites have cable jacks, so I think the cable is live, if there is cable. I might have a screwdriver, I'll open it up and see whats in it.

    I'd borrow an antenna to first see if you get a signal. I don't know how its in Canada, but I have a 10$ cheapo HDTV antenna and I get about 7 HD channels.

    if you can find a live cable you can split it and get free cable. if not you will also need a tuner CLICK HERE!

    I suggest unscrewing that panel and trying to find a cable to split.


    EDIT: hmmm, This says it has a tuner in it, but with the other thing you get a remote!
