Where can i get an external antenna adapter to fit my tv/dvd from
I need the adapter that fits on the back of the component where it says ext. ant. so that i can hook up my dtv converter box up to it. I went to radio shack and the piece they gave me doesn't fit, it seems like it's not long enough or something. Please help me out with this matter.

Well I thought I had one of the mini-jack to F type connector cables ordered but then it became Discontinued at PacParts.com. However, if Radio Shack still carries those F-connector to mini-mono earphone plugs then with another F-type Quick Connect you can make one with a length of RG-*.*/U cable with F-type screwon male connectors. Almost every one has some of those cable or satellite pieces laying around or stored and with proper adapters can fashion one for their portable TV's.

sadly without knowing the MAKE /model . we can only guess but in over 50 years I never saw one that did not have an antenna in jack . satellite service usually goes into the same place when the antenna is disconnected .
If your TV doesn't have a Video IN jack (Yellow) then you would have to attach your dvd by antenna (Coaxial) cable. What does the DVD have on the back ? EG: Video Out is Yellow, Red is Right Audio, White is Left Audio. If your DVD has Ant in & Ant Out you can use a coaxial cable from Ant out to your tv's antenna In socket and put your antenna cable (from your wall socket) to Ant in on the dvd. Turn on the dvd and put your tv on a blank station and tune your tv till you see the dvd screen . lock it in and that becomes your DVD channel to watch your dvd's.
If the antenna has a cable like cable wire--hook it direct to the cable fitting on the set.
If the antenna uses the flat type wire (called 300 ohm twin wire) use an adapter that will connect to the end and have screws for the flat wires and a cable slide on the other side to slide onto the cable fitting on the rear of the TV
The adapter is not exactly the same which is required.but yes you can get the external connection for adapter which will fit in adapter and also get connected to the antenna.You will have to get this external connection from
www.walmart.com or from www.radioshack.com check out.thanks.
You can either plug RCA cables from the audio and video, audio is red and white for stereo or just one of them for mono, the video is yellow, from the "outputs" on the VCR to the matching colors on the tvs "inputs". You can also connect the antenna output on the VCR to the antenna input on the tv and put the tv on channel 3 or 4, if done this way connect the antenna/cable to the VCR antenna in and connect a cable from the antenna out to the tv.
Hi, You need to look on the cable itself to see if it is an RG58 or RG59 or RG6 or RG9. On an RG6 cable the center conductor is larger than on an RG58, The RG6 cable is used for incoming cable, satellite ect. An outside antenna is not usually equipped with an RG6 unless it is of the new HD variety, which is meant to go to one of the newer tvs. You can remedy the problem a couple of ways, use the ant out on the tv if you have one or use an adapter that fits 2 coax cables together and use a RG 58 jumper from the adapter to the vcr. Good Luck!
I had this same problem, I wanted to use this tv with a converter box and the only way to do this was to hook up the converter box with an external antenna to the small 3.5mm input on the back. If you go to radio Shack and get an "F to 1/8" Adapter"the radio shack part number is "278-257". It worked perfectly. I'm able to get many clear channels, and with the converter box I now have remote control. It works well. Good luck, I hope this helps
