However it can not work with the Sanyo TV that is in the RV, that means I need a newer TV. Now the old TV's were a 4:3 screen ratio and the new LED/LCD TV's are 16:9. So the opening for the old TV will not accept the new ones unless I change the cabinet design. Just not a quick change over.
Thank you for the replies, next project?
Just a clarification.
You do know the flat Winegard flat dish is for local TV and NOT Satellite.
It should be able to hookup to any TV that has a coax connector and nothing special. You do have to turn the amp on by pushing the button on the faceplate that has the round 12volt big circle plug.
You do know that... Right?
Wonder why the guys says it won't work on your Sanyo TV?
Did he ever tell you why?
Was the little box switched to local antenna and not SAT?
Now the King Dome is your SAT antenna and yes you need a receiver box to run as well as turning power on for it to operate.
If you know this you are on your way... Great!
