Hooked up wrong

I have a Forest River Silverback 2016. I have to use a splitter and hook up to the Sat connections 1 & 2 to get cable on both TV's. I also have to move the cable connections behind the TV. Wired up wrong at factory. Haven't had a chance to change yet

Thanks so much! It took the combination of first using the switch as described and then using the remote to program in the channels. Thanks to all who contributed. Great community.

Question, can you still get cable channels without a cable box?

Yes, If you're at a campground that offers cable tv.

We had great success with cable, until this year. Through process of elimination, have determined the wiring is now bad somewhere between the cable input Jack where you attach the campground cable and the TV. As a work around we use a longer cable and run through the window. Have no idea how to replace the bad wire.

Herk7769 has good suggestions. Only other obvious suggestions are to check security of connections, confirm with the RV Park or with others as to the quality of their cable TV transmission, and also check quality of your physical cables.

Search

Yes. Go to the menu and make sure antenna is selected and then do a search. I do a new search each time we change campgrounds.

Yes, each time you move you will need to do a new search. Don't worry, it will soon be part of the routine and you won't have to think hard about it!

Jim....when using your roof antenna, do search for "AIR" channels. When on the RV cable system, do same search but for "CABLE" channels. Hope that helps.
