Hi the fact that you're connecting it to the antenna tells me you have a RF switch as shown in this page click me

You need to put the ch 3 or 4 switch and then tune the TV to this channel either 3 or 4. Then you should see the game appear on the TV

I tried that with no success. I also tried selecting tv from source on remote. I will try again. Is there anything else it might be??
TV Technician: hongkongpom, Cable TV Installer replied 2 months ago

Hello there you can only try to ascertain if the RF switch is working. If you can get another TV to try it. Failing this you should use the yellow and red AV cable try connect to the TV as shown here click me
