Cable hook up

The link Ford Idaho provided should be helpful.

Having the Booster turned off is important with cable hook up. I once had a bad coaxial cable. BTW - Are you able to get any over-the-air stations with your antenna & booster? The reason I asked is that I'm thinking some TV stations might be better than having no TV at all.
Great choice for "Living within my means" and camping for one...

No. No converter. Turn off the booster (green light near connection) use TV menu to set TV to cable and scan, auto program for channels.
