cable tv problem

I have a 2012 sunseeker 3170ds. It has 3 tv's on it and I am able to receive cable tv on 2 of them but the rear bedroom will not work with cabe, However it works perfect with over air signal. Any help with where to check.

Well, if you get over the air TV to all 3 TVs; then you should get cable TV to all 3 TVs.

Since you do, but one is "snowy" then I am thinking there is a high resistance (bad) splitter or cable that feeds the TV that is "snowy".

My guess is that lower channel cable comes in OK but the higher numbers are the bad ones. Higher frequencies have a hard time getting through corrosion or other high resistance connection (like a bad coil in the splitter).

I would start there. Cable connections and replace the splitter. Now, where that particular splitter is located is a mystery you will need to solve.

Is the splitter a 3 way? An input and 3 outputs?
or just a 2 way. An input and 2 outputs?

The 2nd photo is a 4 way. 1 Input 4 outputs.

See if you can locate the coax going back the the TV that does not work well. Swap the coax with the one going to the middle TV.

If the problem moves to the middle TV; replace the splitter.

If not repair the cable ends on the cable to the rear TV.
If new cable ends do not fix the problem; replace the cable run.

Since you are getting over the air TV the TV itself has to have cable and digital tuners; so that is not the problem.
