TV Reception

Anyone with a 8289WS having bad TV reception? I reset the channels every time we camp. Any tips that will help.

If you have LED lights that might be the problem. Learned that tip on this forum, and sure enough, a couple of our lights, when on, cause us to lose reception.

I get excellent reception as long as there's a broadcast within maybe 30 miles or so. When your TV scans it will find different stations with the antenna pointed in different directions. Also, make sure your signal booster is on (light on). When it's off, you're in cable mode. My booster switch is located inside a cabinet under the TV and all three tv connections come from there.
