My TV's are Samsung. The menu might vary a bit between brands, but the concept is the same. On the remote select "menu". That brings up a list. Scroll down to Picture (or Channel) , and you have a choice of "air" or"cable". Since you want to use your tailgater, not cable, select "Air". Then do a channel search. Then make sure the button on the wall plate is depressed, and it should illuminate. You need that anytime you select air. It's twofold, one, it selects the roof antenna, amplifies it AND
it switches between the cable and antenna, so if it's out, you are looking at the cable coax (which you're not using.) You see there's only one coax input to the TV and that's why.
Conversely, if you're connected to the park cable, switch the booster off, go to menu, select cable and do another channel search. Sadly there's only one search so you need to repeat it when changing from air to cable.
I don't know how the satellite gets to your TV, perhaps the HDMI? So in the main menu you should be able to switch between the HDMI and the coax (roof antenna).
