Air antenna works! Can't figure cable out...

2015 Interstate Grand Tour here! I have figured out how to watch tv with the antenna.
When I connect cable I can't get a single channel...turned the booster off and changed input on tv to cable...but nothing.
Is there something else I need to do?

Have you done a channel scan on your television? You'll have to do it again every time you move to a new location with a new cable hookup.

Thanks for the reply, Yes change input and channel scan and still nothing.

Wondering if I need to connect something. The coax connection where the booster button is doesn't have anything plugged into it. I just turn the booster on when I use the antenna and off when I TRY cable.

What you have described you are doing has made the cable work on my Airstreams. Are you sure the cable you are connecting to actually has service on it?

I don't know about Interstates, but the trailers have 2 coaxial cable inputs- one for cable, one for satellite- I don't know why-

The trailers also have a little jumper cable by the dining room table maybe you need to move the jumper around or put the jumper in?

You should have a coax that runs from booster to the back of your TV. Mine goes in the wall and comes out to connect to the ant2 on the back of the TV. I have a 2009 classic limited.

I just bought a 2008' safari and had the same problem. On back of television there was two inputs for coax cable input. One for antenna and one for cable. I switched to the other input and it worked. So if you want to use antenna you have to switch back. Dan Regan
