Question about GE 35GT740 35" TV
I have an old tv (80's) that I am trying to hook up to a digital conversion box. I have an adapter to connect the rabbit ears to the converter. I don't have input/output or coaxial connectors on the back of my tv. What can I do? I notice several additional screws on the back on the tv for additional adapters.
Your TV is old enough to have not only screw terminals for the antenna, but it sounds like it has separate UHF and VHF terminals as well. Pick up a 75-ohm to 300-ohm adapter (available at Radio Shack and probably most other places that sell TV's and antennas). This is a small cylinder-shaped part with a threaded antenna connector on one end, and a flat wire with two terminals on the other end. Connect the cable from the converter box to the round connector, hook the two terminals to the VHF antenna screws on your TV, put the TV on channel 3 and you'll be set.
You should also pick up a new antenna designed to work with digital broadcasting. If you use the old rabbit ears you were using before, you will probably not pick up all the channels available in your area.
