Just to cover the basics, this is what I do at every campground. Either use my phone or IPad and go to the following site transition.fcc.gov this will tell you what digital over the air channels are available in the area. Then make sure the boost is turned on and your antenna is up. Make sure your tv is set to antenna and do a channel scan. This needs done for each tv. This procedure make the assumption that nothing is wrong with your cable connections and that your over the air booster is working properly.

Booster Control

Hope your booster control looks like this one and the LED light is ON when using the roof antenna.

Are your TVs CRTs (cathod ray tubes) or flat panel? Are you sure the 3 channels you are getting are digital? If these are the original TVs in your 2004 TT, the TVs may be analog. There was a switch to digital channels in 2009. If this is so, you will need a converter box. One TV may have the converter, the other may not. If your TVs are 2009 or newer, they should be digital. Just covering all the bases

Penjoe X2 on tv's and digital converters. Even some early flat panels still need the converters.
