I'm not getting TV from the antenna when the web sites say I should be getting 9 or 10 channels. I'll have to run out and try scanning it with the amp turned off.
On most Winegard amp wallplates...
green lite = boost antenna signal, and feed switched to antenna coax
no green lite = boost off, and feed switched to cable-in coax
Most plates have three coax, an antenna feed, a cable feed, and a to-television out.
Some don't pay attention to the light when they say they turned that switch on. It's pushes both in and out. That's why I said the member was asking about the light, not just that a person thinks they pushed the button and turned it on.
Members also ask things about the TV menu to help folks trouble shoot, there may be one channel search for air signals and another channel search for cable signals. Sometimes folks forget to set their TV for air versus cable. It's a likely reason for no signal showing up on the TV tuner.
Didn't mean to confuse you.
