TV Cabling

I have the Jay Feather 7 18RNB. There is an open TV cable hookup with a power boost button, which I assume is only for the antenna. What if the campsite offers cable? What are the other two connectors with the jumper cable hooked between? There is no explanation in the owner's manual.

Leave the jumper in place to hook up campground cable to the outside connector.

The jumper is removed to use a satellite connection. One connection goes to the satellite receiver dish in connector the other goes to the TV out connector on the satellite receiver.

Thanks Chuck. So I assume I just connect the TV to the open connection regardless of antenna or cable TV. I just didn't want to connect it and screw up something.

It's usually recommended to turn off the boost when connecting to cable.

Yes single top outlet with the booster goes to the TV. Booster off if hooked to external cable, on for antenna, Here is a picture of ours, along with 5 added USB ports for charging phones and tablets (we have teenagers ya know). Jumper below is for adding a satellite antenna.
