Bedroom TV

We bought a 2007 Limited se 36MDDS last year and can not get the Bedroom Tv to work off the roof antenna. I do not have Direct Tv right now and the front Dell Tv works great off the roof antenna. I have tried all button settings above in the driver cabinet but all I get is snow. The Tv works fine with the DVD player.

Make sure the TV is plugged in to the antenna and the cable didn't pop out.

Have you ever had it work on cable?
I'm guessing a bad cable connection on back of the 3way switch or at the Tv if you've got nothing on any source.
If it's just off-air that's missing then likely bad connection @ the off-air cable into switch or out of the off-air amplifier behind the TV
If none of those work then time to time out the cables themselves for continuity

Old Scout nailed-it! 2007 is when the Feds required new Tv's to be Digital & this Magnavox must have been made earlier. I had a converter box I had for free, hooked it up this morning it has a great picture.

I guess 3 or 4 heads are better than one.... Thanks again.

Since I assume you now have the bedroom coax connected to your digital converter box, be aware that the digital converter box likely will not handle analog signals. If you connect to an analog RV park cable system, you may find your bedroom TV no longer gets cable signals if you attempt to use it.

A coax A/B switch or a splitter should fix that if you care.

Thanks Jim, I happen to have an A/B switch for the near term I will install.

I think my long rang solution will be to replace the Magnavox boat anchor with a lite weight flat screen & utilize that huge cavity for additional cabinet space; perhaps off the toilet room.

Thanks for the update!
Very few posters are as considerate.

BTW, that should put an end to this thread, (but unfortunately it won't).
