Cable vs Satellite -- Which wiring plugs to use 27DFWP

I'm trying to clarify another thread I posted.

Which input/output connection should I plug a campground cable line into? I have been plugging the campground cable connection into the rear plugs on my 27DFWP and receive a really bad picture. The output has been the top connection behind the TV/LCD...

I had a horrible time trying to get a good picture. I finally checked the cable going into the back of the TV. After jiggling the connection a bit I got a crystal clear picture. I then pushed the TV back to pinch the cable between it and the cabinet to hold the position. Now I need to investigate the problem for a permanent fix. Outside I had the coax hooked up to the back. Inside it was up and switch didn't make a difference. Best of luck.

Lots of people have problems with the coax cable connectors in these RV's the best thing to do is change all the connectors and make sure to install the new ones correctly.

Update --
The only issue was the $2 cable from the wall to the LCD TV. I changed that chinese cable and it's all great now.

Very good info. Sometimes we overlook the obvious. I had a 90 el once that was bad. Found it after replacing all the jumpers and reworking the connectors. Glad you found it.

x2. RV Builders know nothing about coax fittings. Good lord, I've seen drunk monkeys do a better job!!!!!
