Yes...all TV's are set to the antenna. Make sure your TV is set to air broadcasts not cable. Then search again.

If that isn't the problem then you may have a loose connection or even a bad connector. I always try the easiest answers first.

Check the coax cabling connections at the TV and at the wall plate where the connection comes from the antenna splitter. They are often not tightened very well.

What kind of TV is the one that can't get the channels? Thor has been known to install TV's that don't have QAM decoders in them--something else to check.

I'm not familiar with your brand of TV, but since you have HDMI and coax from antenna, is it possible you need to switch the TV's input setting to the antenna?

I get that on some TVs after watching on a different input, where they don't go back to original I was watching before.

We had that problem our first time out. Turned out the coax wasn't connected to the splitter for either the back or the outside TVs. On our 29.3, the splitter is in the cupboard above the 'living room' TV.

We have a '17 Axis 25.5. Our TV splitter is located behind the microwave, which you'll have to remove to access it. The plug for our microwave is in the top of the cabinet above the sink. You'll have to unplug it and push plug and cord thru the hole in cabinet wall that goes in to area behind microwave. Be sure to have a helper if you remove your microwave...don't ask how I learned that the hard way. If your coax cable isn't connected to the TV, you aren't connected to the antenna. The HDMI cables are for AV input, such as a DVD player, x-box or video games. Thor puts the cable in but you have to add your own AV toys. As to the TV wall mounts, the ones on our bedroom TV and outside TV have magnets that hold the TV's close to the wall. Gently pull on a corner of your TV and it should pull away from the wall so you can get to the cables. As previously mentioned, cables are often not tightly connected, so be sure your's are. Good luck!

thanks guys for all the helpful suggestions. i happen to find the splitter by happenstance behind an access panel in the cabinet above the sink. they were all connected. took the coach back to dealer with a couple other issues and told them about the tv. what they found was the cable was cut under the bed. they spliced it and now it works fine.

I have a 30.3 ACE with 3tvs' and all three work on the antenna. The tv outside also plays through the outside speakers using the wall mount Jenson stereo in the bedroom. There's a extra HDMI run to the DVD player in the cabinet. I added a switch so I can watch dvds' on the outside tv also.
