TOPIC: Cable tv reception problem

Cable tv reception problem 1 week 2 days ago #1

Ok, need the help of all you video people that are smarter than me .......

Here's the issue - if I use the OTA antenna (we have one of the Winegard automatic ones that looks like a small dome ) the picture on both sets is great. Crystal clear, lots of channels, full HD when available. If I then turn off the booster, switch to the cable in from the park, one set is at most "fair" and the other set has maybe two channels that are watchable. Have looked at a rig a couple of sites away from mine and their cable is ok. The park maintenance has checked our site with a meter and said "its within specs and should be ok".

And the tv search is restarted when switching from OTA to cable.

I'm smelling the park maintenance is full of it. Am I correct or is there somewhere else I should be looking ?

Not sure about your system, but I'll bet it is the park's problem. Where we are right now we can get internet through the park's cable system, the internet tech said "if you get a crummy TV signal then our internet won't work well". He tests the park cable connection before he sets up the internet.

Question: Did your Park Cable input work prior to changing to the Automatic OTA Dome??
Just wondering if something got messed up making the change from the Bat Wing.

The line from the booster to the TV is the same regardless of whether your watching OTA or cable. SO the only fault on your end could be the line from the cable input (wet bay on mine) to the booster. To check this I would attach the cable to the sat in (wet bay on mine) that goes directly to behind the living room tv. Scan again and see. Also make sure your selecting cable not air when you scan. If that works then its your cable in line to the booster. If it still looks bad, then is the signal form the park.
