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,

How to install indoor digital tv antenna to a lcd tv & pickup digi channels


First, the LCD TV has to have a digital tuner in it. Older ones may not. If it does, then you attach the antenna connector to the TV connection that is marked TV IN or CABLE. Then, in the TV's menu, you would need to ensure that the digital tuner is selected. Once that is done, then, still in the menu, perform an "ON AIR" channel scan to find and lock in whatever digital channels that the antenna can detect.

Indoor antenna won't work on my cable ready set


You do have to make sure to switch the settings to an external antenna. You also will have to check that you have what is an analog signal available to you. If you antenna is analog it will only get analog broadcast. You may also need to switch to a digital tv antenna, The other thing is the range of you antenna. Most indoors, in a congested area will only pull in signal from about 20 to 25 miles out.

Indoor antennas are not very good if you live far away from the TV transmitter. Antenna aim has to be more precise than before with analog TV's. If you can put up an outside antenna you'll probably get them all.

Really tough to get perfect reception with Rabbit ears. If you can somehow feed the line outside a lot of the times I have found that it helps improve signal reception

Does your set have compatible connectors on the rear of it? Did you read the instruction manuals that came with the new equipment? Did you ask your dealer???
