After the scan where you get 126 I believe RF channels, no digital nor analog, it just asks for a scan again-and again--and again.

When I set to air and scan, it gets different numbers of digital (assume weather has something to do with it and we are about equi distance of Charleston and Savannah) but when it finishes scan it jumps right to the first digital channel--all of which except the PBS channels of Georgia and South Carolina are unstable--but both likely have repeaters relatively near us.

So we will take it back to our dealer--who is quite good with working with us--and see what they can find-problems with wiring, TV, etc.

What brand antenna and amplifier do you have on your RV?

Our 2017 MBS Sunseeker has a King Jack HD over the air antenna. along with it comes a power switch to power. When the power is on the signal to the TV comes from the Antenna, when the power is off, The signal for the TV comes from the cable TV attachment point.

See if your antenna system has a similar switch as this could be your problem. BTW our switch is hidden in a cabinet behind the main wall mounted TV.

hope this helps

Cable not air

We have been able to get OTA-even here at home, move antenna, but in most instances we have been quite a distance from any cities and assume we will be again. But unless we are traveling more full time, would prefer to use the CG cable with many more channels and in fact the ones that you can't get OTA. Its frustrating when all around you people are watching with cable and ours won't connect but we will try suggestions next week.
