How is the front TV ? Do you have the right button selected for the bedroom TV (AUX.2)
How cold is it where you are at?

Hi Mtnaire,
Like palehorse89 posted, can you supply us with as much information as possible so we can make some suggestions? Before you move forward, consider these questions:
1. Have the TVs worked correctly in the past? Is this the first time the bedroom TV has had a poor picture?
2. Are all TVs having the same problem?
3. If you ran a cable directly from the cable TV connection to the bedroom TV, is the problem still there?
4. In the distribution box, work the buttons a bit and see if the picture changes.

Please post additional information here.
thanks,

Not sure which 05 MA you have, but I just took my bedroom tv out a couple weeks ago and replaced with a 26" flat. Too get your tv out (if it is like mine) there are 4 wood plugs in the face frame, take those out. I actually had to drill mine out as they were glued in. Behind the plugs are screws, take them out. Remove the face frame. Lift the tv up a little and slide it out. It is actually screwed to a board. Once you slide it out turn the tv over and unscrew it. There will also be a tether strap at the top, take it off and there you have it.
Can't help on the other, but above is good suggestions.

Did the same here on my 04 Mountain aire. Put in a flat screen and hung a little currtain to hide it when it's not on. Leaves a ton of space for light-weight storage behind the TV. Pillows, etc.

I mounted my new tv on a piece of plywood and attached with a piano hinge across the top. I can lift the TV and store behind it. I also raised the TV and made a 5" shelf along the bottom so that we had a place to sit the alarm clock so that we could see it while in bed.

Cable TV Problem

Make sure the booster switch on the roof air antenna is turned off. If left on this will cause poor reception on cable tv.
