miramar TV issue

I have a 2016 Miramar 34.3 and for some reason I can not get the TV in the bed room and the the one in the lower bunk to work on cable . All the other TV's will search and find channels in Air or Cable mode after turing on or off the amplifier button . The Bed room will find channels and the picture is great only for Air mode with the RV antenna and the lower bunk the TV has a great picture and finds channels as well with Air mode , but in cable mode both TV's have a distorted picture and the Bed room only finds maybe one or two channels at best and those are distorted and not able to be watched. Any idea's why this is happening ??? I have tried everything I can think of at this point . Those other TV's that do work ok are the one ouside , the one over the dinette and the one in the Hall way these work great on cable or Air mode.
Thanks
Milo

I had similar problem with my outlaw. It was loose connections on the splitter to the garage/outside tvs.
I wish you luck finding the locations of the splitters. Thor tech support said placement is at mercy of the factory during assembly.

I found one in the double wall behind the antenna/cable switch. The other one was accessed behind one of the outdoor speaker.

Tighten the connectors with a 7/16" wrench. Everything is fine.

I agree, check the splitter. The splitter for the TV in my Miramar is very close to the DVD Player and HDMI Matrix combo.

I have a similer issue with our 2018 Miramar 35.3. Excellent picture on antenna but fuzzy picture on cable channels. Like others have said, it's likely a loose cable or bad connectors or spliter. I went to wallmart and purchased TV amplifier and hooked it up right where the cable comes into the motorhome. It only cost $11.99 and the cable picture is MUCH better now. One day I guess I will check all of the cable connections but this little amp was a cheap fix.

splitters found so far

I have found two splitters so far one by the dvd and one under the bottom bunk but they both had no loose fittings , so my search continues, Thanks to all for the suggestions .

Make sure the connection on the TV itself is tight and also remove the wall plate that the cable from the TV is connected to. It also has a coax connection which could be loose.

Tv problem on cable

I found the reason why the Tv in the bed room and bunks would not work on cable but did on the antenna and the answer was they did not strip back the wire insulation and thus the wire in the line for the antenna was done but the wires in the bundle that were for the cable was not stripped back far enough.
Hope this helps anyone else having this issue .
