The cable TV system serves as a link between the broadcast transmitter and the home receiver. The broadcast transmitter, while not flawless, is usually built and maintained to professional standards. The household television receiver which serves as the final terminal in the television chain is often not maintained with the special technical requirements of cable television in mind. Some of the technical characteristics of CATV systems which affect receiver operation and maintenance are reviewed, with case histories of receiver/cable TV problems presented.
