Laundry Alert

LaundryAlert allows a resident to determine the status of his/her laundry from his/her computer and allows residents to receive a text message when his/her laundry is done.

Setting Up Your TV

It is important to perform a channel scan on your TV to ensure you are viewing all the available analog and digital channels. Exact details on how to auto program or auto tune digital TVs vary from manufacturer to manufacturer and from model to model. For best results, refer to the owner’s manual. Most TVs will take between 20-45 minutes to complete this function.

Using the TV's remote control, follow these general steps:

  1. Press the “Power” button to turn on the TV
  2. Press the “Menu” Button
  3. Select “Set-Up”
  4. Select “Antenna” then “Cable”
  5. Select “Auto Program/Auto Tune/Channel Scan” then “OK”
