Need help with TV and viewing channels

Let's take one step at a time - lets work on cable stations first.

I was at a cg with cable TV connections. I hooked up a coax cable from the power stand to the coax outlet on the outside of the trailer. Then I had the TV scanned for all available channels. I ended up with only 1 or 2 local stations (KCET & Fox) but a lot of the higher number channels (these stations came in fuzzy).

I tried watching/scanning with the little green on; antenna up and down; set for cable; set for antenna. All of those choices gave me different results but none good.

Question: What are the correct steps when trying to watch TV via cable connection?

Great choice for "Living within my means" and camping for one...

The booster button little green light. The TV in the cable mode, not antennae mode. I shouldn't matter whether the antennae is up or down, but I would leave it down....something less to forget when you pull-out.

I have the same issue. In my case the L/R television isn't digital compatible so I need a converter box to get all the upper channels. Right now i only get about 8 -10 channels.
