It depends on the output of the QAM Tuner box. Each TV will need a box. The input to the box is your coax cable. The output may also be coax cable or it may be HDMI.

What happens if you place the converter out of the pedestal. Then to the cable in on RV. Does that work. Same channel on all 3 Tv's and does remote work inside RV with box outside in a bay. Trying to avoid running cable in window or inside RV.

If you put this box at the pedestal:

https://www.amazon.com/IVIEW-3200STB...ords=qam+tuner

and connect to your cable-in connection all TVs will have to be turned to the appropriate channel (3 or 4) and they will watch whatever channel is selected by this tuner. You may need to point the remote out of the window for it to work and don't leave the tuner outside in the rain.


Or you could just buy 1 box for each TV and connect it between the coax for the TV and the TV input coax. Connect the outside coax to your Cable-in connection and turn off the internal OTA amplifier.

Thanks. Have had only a couple of places where cable didn't work. Considering replacing Tv's. At least this will give me an option. Thanks for your help.

Thanks to all who responded. I have learned a lot. My next immediate move is to swap the Samsung TV in my garage for the Sieki in the MH. A temporary fix until I buy new TVs.

We had problems with our 32" Seiki TV in the living area where the sound would not work on occasion. But then maybe next time it would.

Last weekend we went down to the Clearwater, FL area to visit our new grandson and the TV was soundless again. That was the straw.......
I went to BestBuy and got a 39" 1080P Insignia ROKU TV for $199. It even had the same 200 x 200 mm VESA pattern as the Seiki so it fit the mount with no modification. And it streams great using my Mobley and $20/month Unlimited Connected Car Plan. And because it is connected to the Internet it has a real channel guide that you can browse.

One less Seiki to deal with.
