Because we always had problems with campground cable systems and the OTA setup passing the lower channels, typically the channels carrying the network feeds. I disconnected the coax cable from the input that was in place, and ran a new quad shielded RG6U cable to the side of cabinet next to the stairs. When we use the Wally, it is placed on top of this cabinet. If satellite signal is blocked, the receiver stays in a case beside the bed. Although we have the Jack antenna, sometimes it picks up a myriad of channels and at other times only a few, and often the transmissions are weak leading to excessive pixelating. If I had to do it again, I would omit the Jack antenna. We also carry a small DVD player in the event cable, OTA, or satellite signals are nonexistent or dismal. One summer we watched Downton Abbey, another we watched most of Longmire. We really do not watch a lot of television until after the evening meal, especially if it is rainy.
What a long strange trip itís been!
