Hello, I’m Nathan, and I’ll be assisting you today. My livelihood depends on your positive feedback, so your satisfaction is my highest priority. Sorry to hear you’re having trouble. The new tv will work in exactly the same manner as the old one. Connect the existing 2nd outlet coax to the new tv,set the new tv to the TV input mode (not hdmi, etc).Go into the tv setup menu, usually under channels, programs, or initial setup (depends on make/model of the tv),then run through the Tuning function (auto scan/auto program) and the new tv should pick up the box, usually on channel 3 or 4 (or whatever channel the old tv used).
