I had the same problem, went on the roof and the coax cable end was not put on right! It had no ground, where it connects to the antenna, replaced end and all is well!

mine didn't get any channels ether, so I pulled the radio out and the splitter was wired backwards, now I get lots of channels.

We took our Vibe to the FR plant for some fixes which included the switched wires for the Antenna. They not only fixed it but knew who was making the error and we felt very confident that this will be addressed with the person by them.

Had same problem with my Vibe 311 RLS. Satellite tech trouble shot to short in wiring in the walls. not to happy about it but did a workaround. He pulled out the dvd player and saw a hole made with hammer or some other object and the wires just run through the hole . poor workmanship at best

my tv didn't get any stations, same with the radio, the booster was wired up backwards there are three connections that go in the back of booster and two were reversed, now I get lots of stations. they sent a lot out of the factory that way.

Well this is good info. We didn't try the tv yet for reception, too much to explore
