Cable/Antenna

Need a little help in this natter-----what do you do to switch from antenna to cable on the TV at a camp ground? Is there any switch to turn over from one to the other. Thanks! Got a Cardinal flag now need the pole ---- nice looking --- can't wait to fly it over the bird. :D :D

I personally go out and disconnect the cable, raise the antenna, and turn on the booster. The reason I disconnect from the cable is that an antenna booster will back feed through the cable and ruin all the neighbors picture on cable. Many campgrounds warn of this in the check-in guidelines.

Hi Rosie, there should be a switch on a wall plate somewhere inside you entertainment center. When the light is on you are using the antenna on the roof. When the lights is off you are using cable.

Speaking of cable and antennas, does anyone have a 12v outlet for a TV in any room? I thought we were supposed to have at least one 12v hookup at one of the coaxial cable outlets? Can anyone help?

My Cardinal has one in the bedroom and one where the main tv is located in the living area.

Thank you. Our red bird is still under warranty, so I will contact the dealer and get them installed.

Thank you for the input as soon as we get the bird out I'll check and let all know if the problem is fixed. Thanks again
