Better TV reception

OK, so the last couple of times out I got pretty good air signal on my TT tv sets but of course I wanted to try the rv park cable. I connected it, switched my source to cable, and scanned for channels but it will not pick up any channels. What am I doing wrong? Do I need a converter box?

Did you turn off the antenna boost button?
If not do so and then rescan.


Press the little black button.

Make sure the cable is tight.

So turn off the boost, rescan, then turn the boost back on or leave it off?
