    Try taking the OTA coax and connect it directly to the TV. Then have the TV scan for channels. If the TV works then you probably have a problem with the OTA module or the hopper. If not, then it is something else. Comcast box to OTA module will never work.

    Have you plugged your address into TVFool? You may need a larger antenna, or aim it in a different direction, or a higher installation location in order to receive your local channels. Plugging the antenna into the television and scanning for channels is a good troubleshooting tool - if it works, then you've determined there's a problem with the OTA module. If it doesn't, then you probably need a bigger/better antenna. Good as that Terk is, it's still just a small indoor antenna.

    The OTA module only receives digital OTA signals. The output from your cable box is good old fashioned NTSC analog video.
