Open Question

Connecting an indoor antenna to a digital LCD TV

I want to connect an RCA ANT121 indoor antenna to a LC195SL9 digital LCD TV. The antenna has a 75 ohm coaxial cable with an F-type connector according to the specs. The antenna input of the TV is also for a 75 ohm coaxial cable with an F-type connector according to its specs. However, the central pin of the antenna connector seems to be too large for the TV input, so that a connection cannot be made. Previously, the antenna connected with no difficulty to another LCD TV. Is the TV input defective? How can this problem be solved?

I checked Amazon, it says "For connections, you get 1 each composite- and S-video inputs for your DVD player, VCR, or other audio/video device, and a set of component-video inputs for your progressive-scan DVD player or DTV set-top box."

Your TV does not have a audio out since it is a smaller TV. You need to get a tuner and route the sound system through there.

You just can't. Not without an external receiver.

Your TV is simply missing a piece of hardware - it is called TUNER - that can understand the signal that runs through the cable (or an antenna) and decode it into simple video signal.

So the only solution is to buy an EXTERNAL TUNER device (also called external receiver or external set top TV box).

Those are rather cheap compared with what they used to be, but if you care for an advice from professional it is: sell your TV and use the revenue towards the purchase of a new one. All TVs currently in the mainstream sales channels have that thing built-in.

Some of the older models that you will find on Craigslist (like yours) do not.

it is usually not a problem for users with cable TV because most cable TV boxes also have a built-in tuner. If you are talking about how to connect your TV to your local cable company then the right thing to do is call your cable operator and tell them you want a newer receiver that outputs standard composite (one yellow one red one white) or component (green, blue, yellow and white and red) - if your TV has the later.

Hope this helps. If it does please rate accordingly.

Cheers,

I have an indoor digital aerial connected to a free view box but when I automatically tune the TV it comes up with no channels found check aerial connection


Possibly. Try rotating the antenna a little bit and retry tuning. Keep on doing this until you get your channels. If this doesn't work, raise the antenna as high as possible and try again.

How do I attach an antennna?


On the back of the TV look for the connector marked Ant/cable. This is a silver connection with threads on it. If you have a digital indoor antenna, connect it there. Same goes if you have an outdoor antenna. Now go to the setup screen and select AIR for antenna type. After that do a channel search and select digital and analog channels. Let the TV find all the stations it can. When it's done searching, it will show a picture. You may need to aim the antenna to get a better picture .

Please check if the antennae is connected with right cable and the dipole is good. If so search the channels avaiilable and if there is no signal then it is possible that the TUNER is faulty. check using another TV with the same antennae or check the RF input using a VCR or TUNER.

I cann;t receive several network channels on my Dynex 26: L150A11 LCD TV using only an antenna (no converter box). Does this TV have a built-in digital tuner? Do I need to use anything else to connect ?


Hi,
all new tvs should have a built in digital tuner. Make sure that tv is set to receive antenna signal and not cable by going into the menu. Use autoprogram feature if you haven't done so already. it will lock onto whatever signal is strong enough for it to see. Also if you are using an indoor antenna it may not be able to get enough signal to the box. Indoor antennas are not the greatest especially if the station is far away.

Don't have cable. Have the digital converter box and a indoor antenna...it's hooked up and TV is playing fine. After hours of changing every cable the VCR will not play. I get the sound of the movie but no...


You can connect VCR, TV and converter box using coaxial cables OR you can connect using RCA cables. See this web page:

Using RCA cables, make sure you connect the yellow video cable. Select the proper input on the TV.
