The aerial needs power to work correctly; check that the power is switched on (Switch on either the mains and/or battery power to the vehicle) both power sources switch on the aerial (12 Volts).

Check that the TV aerial lead is of good quality (Normally cheap leads from the supermarket give reception problems, they are normally mass produced and made to a wider tolerance). Ensure the coax lead from the aerial socket to the TV is suitable for digital reception (If in doubt ask for advice).
Connect aerial and power
Fix the TV to a bracket or place on a stable flat surface then connect the aerial cable and power lead to the TV and sockets.
