Be alarmed Carl, I read it like you, thinking two shops were involved. You know what they say, Great Minds can't figure Dave out!

I rechecked my TV in our MH. The system is the older (non HDMI) one. I put all 4 TVs through their pace in the "over the air" mode of operation. All 4 searched and locked into at least 20 local stations (includes each station's sub channels).

I can't do the same for cable operation. The MH's storage spot is in the driveway outside my DD and SIL's home and they do not have any form of cable TV.

I took another look behind the air/cable switch and checked all connections and looked for cables in need of being attached to another cable. A picture of this area would be useless for you "remote technicians" since the area looks like a jumbled mass of black spaghetti (countless number of cables, some in a protective sleeve and some just plain old cables). So . . . . . I think I'll go to a neighboring RV park, hook up to cable, and do some basic hook/unhook/reattach types of manuvers OR just call a TV tech to meet me at the park.

Make sure when hooked to cable, you change the settings from antenna (over the air) to cable. If antenna is working, then so should cable if setting is changed.

Thanks Chuck! That photo is better than a diet pill. You've totally turned my stomach off to the idea of food.

Steve, also when hooking up cable turn the booster off.

Still would like a picture of your set-up.

If you cannot connect your RV to a cable input, what are you expecting from the "cable" side of things??? This is even more confusing than Dave describing his fixin's...

Hello, my dears!
Good catching up on all the goings on. I'm so looking forward to meeting you guys.

Di, thinking of you with that iron infusion. I hope that does the trick! And maybe get it checked more often, if it can be caught early so no need for 7 hour infusions? Do you have that MTHFR genetic dysfunction that prevents your body from accurately absorbing iron?

Barb and Carl, I need to borrow Sena or Boko. Hey you guys could rent them out and make a pretty penny from fellow RVers who need to motivate recalcitrant repair shops, haha! In lieu, I could take Earlene and her toy boat....*wink wink"

Dave, speaking of boyhood play... you ever play army men as a kid and shoot them down with rubber bands? That was Allen's thing as a kid, epic army man battles. Got good enough at accuracy that he could shoot flies out of the air. Taught army man battles to our sons. Only down side to that, was stepping on plastic army men in the dark at night. Worse than stepping on Barbie shoes or Legos because plastic army men have more edges on them! Our grandsons are almost old enough to teach rubber band army man battles to, across the living room floor. Good times ahead.

Tim, loved hearing that the GD's have mastered the art of loving on those hens (whether they want loving on or not, hehe.) Have a wonderful trip at the state park!

Charlene

The switch from air to cable "seems" to be working as it should. One switch is for all the tvs and the front tv is working fine on cable mode.

Papa Steve, after hearing your troubles and those of others with their TV's and electronic gadgets in their motorhomes, I'm kind of glad Honey is an old lady without all the gizmos... but then, I don't fulltime in her either. I'm happy without my TV for the trips we take, I get caught up on books in my reading list.
