Hi. On that model you may need to change the tv to the VIDEO setting. Have you tried that?

we have changed the input setting there doesn't appear to have a video setting that has anything to do with the switch from antenna to cable

Do you have more than one input on the coach? Some do, and that can make a difference. And look at the place on the wall where the cable hook up is for your box........is there a switch there for selecting one or the other?

Then I would just give Tiffin Customer Service a call and ask them for some assistance. I am attaching a link for that site for you. Sorry I couldn't offer more on this. Please get back to me and let me know what they had to say. Thanks! http://www.tiffinmotorhomes.com/contact
