Outside cable jack?

We've had our Greyhawk 31DS for a couple of months. I have yet to figure out how to get the cable jack in the outside storage next to the door to get a signal to my outdoor tv. Is the roof-mounted antenna supposed to feed that jack? The manual is not any help.

Thanks a lot,

Jason

You should bring t back to the dealer. I should be plug and play although you would need a tv that has a built in Digital tuner like your TV inside.

When you have your cable connected, the power switch for the antenna should be "off".

Found it. Won't have a chance to try it out this weekend. What is the thinking behind needing the antenna power off?

I don't know, but one of the members will. My guess is two feeds to the same terminal.

If left on all the time it will kill your battery... those of us that boondock need to have them off... and helps keep the battery alive when in storage.

The button switch on the TV wall plate is only a signal amplifier which is not needed for a cable signal. It does nothing as far as signal distribution.

You can not get a TV now that is not capable of digital reception.
