I have a new 30-RKSS. It has two cable inputs outside. Sat and Cable. There is only one output below the shelf. Sat/Aux. I couldn't get cable at the park to work on the TV. I don't understand and the dealer wasn't very helpful, why there are two inputs and one output. What's the point and is there a difference? I'm looking at adding DishHD but still want to use cable when it's available, not both at the same time.

Any input on DishHD system would be appreciated. Camping World told me the Winegard Travl'r for $1800 is the only thing that will work. My local RV tech says Dish doesn't work on RV's. And I'm not especially interested in a portable unit. Rather have something on the roof.

Thanks for any help.

First off Welcome!!

Your cable coax feeds to the same wall connector as your on the roof ant. The key is make sure your "power boost" is turned off. The power boost switch should be on the wall plate, sm. button. I would also check to make sure the connections are tight behind the wall plate. The people who put the things together do not really tighten them up.

Dish does work, you do not need to look at that system. There are the other systems that will mount on the ladder for around 500.

Keep in mind that if you go with the roof mount, is there permanently. If you have trees in the way, you don't have TV.

The good thing about the portables is that they can be moved to find signal if there are obstructions.

I used the cable for the first time this year. Make sure the amplifier is off and that you set the television to cable. You should find it when you push menu on the clicker. At least that's how mine worked after a bit figuring it out.

In a pinch (if the correct procedure listed below is still giving you fits), you can use the sat connection. It is a single cable straight through to the sat output on the wall plate. Just hook your TV input to the sat connector directly and set your TV's antenna input; set the channel scanner to cable; scan and it should work.
