36bhbs TV reception

We bought our new 2013 Salem 36BHBS last year and I have yet to be able to receive any channels on the TV. It is a new flat screen purchased last year so it should have an internal digital receiver in it. I have put the antenna up and rotated it through it's full rotation while running channel searches throughout but it hasn't came up with 1 channel. Our neighbour ( 30 ft away) is getting 6 channels over the air. Any suggestions?

Sounds like you don't have the booster on.
I can't get anything on mine with it off, but get 13 channels with it on.
Makes my son quite upset, because I get more channels in my trailer than he does at his house. LOL

My Salem 32BHDS had the antenna wires crossed up. Had the same problem as you, bought a Jack antenna. Still nothing. Started going through wires and sure enough. They had put the antenna wire on the satellite side. Check your wires.
