Are you sure you connected the coax from the roof antenna to the proper "UHF/VHF" RF connector on the back of the 960? That's the one you must use for OTA antenna feed. You shouldn't be using the other "CABLE" connector.
Also, after connecting your roof coax properly did you then perform the channel scan? Remember, there are no more NTSC analog channels to tune from your roof antenna. Everything is now digital ATSC, and the 8VSB tuner in the 960 needs to scan the airwaves locking in on the digital channels it can receive. That results from the "auto programming" function in Setup as described on page 100 of the user manual.
Press MENU button on remote, navigate down to the CHANNELS icon group. Then navigate to the "auto program" item, press OK, and let it run.
All the available digital ATSC channels/sub-channels which can be received by your roof antenna will be tuned to by the 960 and made available for selection. You can then UN-SELECT whichever of those channels and sub-channels you do NOT want to waste time passing through when you use channel-up/down, etc.
