Cable TV ??

Just set up our new Seismic wave for the first time in an RV park with full hookups. Cant figure out how to set up the cable TV.
Have hooked up to the pedestal, and ran an auto search but cant get any stations. I ran the cable to the adjacent spot and still can not get anything.
Is there something special I need to do to get the cable TV to work?

Thanks

Yes, I tried several things. It all of sudden it found all the channels. Took about a half hr during the channel search before it started finding them. So we are good now.
Guess it's just slow finding channels?
Thanks.

Many sets require you to select either Antenna or Cable somewhere in the setup.

Most take a long time to scan thru the gizallions of channel numbers. It would be nice if you had the option to select digital, analog or both somewhere in there. It would speed the scan up some.

Like stated above be sure your OTA ANTENNA WALL PLATE is off as indicated by no light being on.

This inhibits the CABLE TV wiring and just selects the OTA Crank up Antenna when the light is on...

LOL...This seems to be the case. My other units were quite a bit faster. This is my first Furrion equipped RV. Not a big issue for us as we normally dry camp 90% of the time and don't watch TV.

Now to figure out how to get the DVD ejected! Put the Lippert leveling DVD in first thing to learn about the auto leveling and wont eject.

BTW...so far this is the biggest issues found so far on first trip out, so cant complain!
