 I already have Fios internet and phone service. I recently decided to add TV. I live in an older home, so there are no coax wall plugs—cable is just strung along baseboards to wherever it is needed then screwed into the relevant device. I have connected my STB to the TV and the coax, but I’m not sure where to connect it’s other end. The modem/router and OMB are installed together. I’ve tried screwing the cable into both the router and the OMB but neither is correct. My TV is not getting a signal. Help!
