Thanks Chasbo 70, I did find the app on Google Play. Next trip out we'll use it. Going fishing at the end of this month. It'll be nice to have a better tv at night.

I had the same issue with my 2011 Georgetown 327DS and came to the conclusion that it was caused by the 4-way splitter between the input selector switch (ant/cable/sat) and the TVs in the unit. My "no-modifications" solution was to add an amplifier from Radio Shack at the output of the input selector box. The boosted signal, after the splitter now has enough strength to usually give a good picture. Some RV parks still have poor signals because their equipment is old, misinstalled, has bad connections or a number of other problems.

Thanks everyone for your help. I finally found a tiny black button in one of the overhead cabinets that seems to switch from over the air TV to cable TV and now cable TV comes in fairly well. This button was not discussed at the delivery inspection and isn't in any of the manuals but my issue is resolved.
