I couldn't get mine to work in my trailer during my first trip. Operator error. Read the book about how to work it. Then read the book a second time and follow the directions.

Telling someone to go get a pizza doesn't help anything. You should be trying to help.
What kind of problem(s) are you having? Does the TV power on? Is your booster on? Antenna up?

Cable means hooked to a cable network, digital is using the antenna.

Does the TV power on? Have you checked the settings on the TV? Menu, setup, source, scan for channels, etc?

Make sure your TV antenna booster is on, antenna raised, turn TV on and then go to the Auto Scan and let it scan all the channels. To get the most channels out of your TV you have to do this everytime you move locations, but it only takes a few minutes to do.

This poster posted the same question in two places.

I don't think people responding the should have to guess/question what the OP did or did not do. The OP should give information so those responding can help.

Some of the TV's do not have a "QAM" tuner and will not decode cable TV. Follow the set-up in your manual and have the TV search for on air channels. If that works but cable does not you may have that problem with the tuner.
I had to replace a TV in my RV that could not receive cable..

TV Menu and find antenna setting and change from air to cable. Make sure it is set to cable if you are on a cable network. Do not have the amplifier turned on if on a cable network. Scan for both analog and digital. Many campgrounds pump the signal only in analog.

OTA (Over The Air): TV Menu. find antenna setting and change it from cable to air. When scanning scan for both analog and digital signals. You may be in an area where you get only analog signals (out in the boonies)

Check the RF connectors to make sure the fine craftsman that installed the cables on any one particular day did not reverse them.

Let us know what you find.
