TV antenna

I want to put a over the air antenna on the outside of the MoHo and can not get any signal from the outside jack to the television. Is this for CABLE only? Does it need boosting? I will share the results when accomplished.

Ours came with the roof mounted antenna. It is over the bedroom. The push button switch on the coaxial cable output plate that turns on the little LED light switches from cable to the antenna. Light on=antenna. Light off=cable.

Technically I believe that light indicates amplification of the antenna, certainly by NOT amplifying it you will have less interference with the cable signal, but I do not believe it is a switch. If you have a signal pulled in to your analog tuner on your TV (that no one has anymore) and you turn the light out it will get snowier, but it will not go out. Now since we all have digital TVs tuning digital TV stations you will likely see the signal be fine and then there is no signal when the light is out, but you are just as likely to have signal and continue to have signal when you turn the light off as the digital signal is really strong in most cities.

Actually, the light does indicate power applied to the antenna amplifier, but the button also switches input between antenna and cable.

Have you tried the TV directly to that antenna, without going through the M/H cable(s)? Could just be antenna alignment. The digital bands are so narrow, moving our roof mounted antenna 1/2" can lose/gain signals. If the M/H cable passes a cable TV signal, it ought to pass an antenna signal (once proven to be there).

Hope this helps.
