Cable connection


Recommended Posts

Oh how I struggle with technology!

I connected to cable at my campground and connected to the cable port on my Ollie. What in the world do I have to do to get the cable channels? (2022 OEII) I have tried everything I know on the remote...nothing helpful in the manuels.

For my trailer (2016), there is a box in the attic that toggles between the cable connection and the antenna.  There is a little button that switches between the two.  If it’s in your attic, push the little button and then try scanning for cable channels again.  Mike

Also in the  2019 and I assume in yours.

When you are connected up to a cable port outside the trailer it comes into the "amplifier" in the attic.

The AMP is ON when the red lamp is lit.
It's only supposed to be on to receive off the air HDTV channels via your antenna.

The red light (and amplifier)  needs to be OFF to receive CATV , then do a channel scan for the CATV input that is feeding the TV from the CATV pedestal.

That wall mount amplifier channel is hooked up to the HDTV antenna.  So when it's on , that input becomes the most powerful input and your TV won't see any CATV channels.

So when you turn it off, then the CATV scan should find the CATV channels.

One last thing, in my Hull 505 the factory had inadvertently wired the CATV input (outside) to the Satellite input and vice versa. 
So if you still don't get anything, stick the outdoor cable into the other outside input and rescan.


After that I don't know what to tell you.

That was it Galwaygirl! Thank you! It boiled down to simply rescanning after a cable connection. That's probably what Mike was also implying, but I didn't get it. 

Thank you guys...We love you.
