Hello, I'm looking to possibly hook up an outdoor antenna through my outside cable box as to get channels to all my tv's, not sure how to do this, can you help ?

Re: Antenna

Not sure what you mean. Cable boxes will not work with a broadcast antenna. You would wire the antenna, maybe through a splitter, to the TV's.

Re: Antenna

The antenna coaxial cable needs to be connected to the TV's "antenna in"  connection. You then change the TV source to "antenna" and run a channel search to find any stations in your area that the antenna can pick up.


After that you just switch the TV's source to "cable" or "antenna" using the TV's remote.
