Did you turn the antenna booster button off, before you scanned?

If that is the antenna box on ceiling, yes.

What Forester model do you have ?

Where the TV is plugged into power, there will be a very small button (green light) you will need to push.

Look up the specifications for the TV. Unless it has a dual ATSC/QAM tuner, it will not tune to cable frequencies. ATSC=Over The Air, QAM=Cable. If the specs only say "digital" tuner, chances are it is only ATSC. The dual tuner models are a few $$ more, so I can guess which you have.

Did you get it working?
If so, what was the problem?
