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.

HANDHELD UNIT NEED ADAPTER TO GET DIGITAL SIGNAL NEAR KCMO


To connect a converter box to a handheld TV that has an external antenna jack, you need an adapter with an F jack on one end and a 1/8" plug on the other (Radio Shack catalog # 278-257, about $5). The 1/8" plug on the adapter goes in the external antenna jack on the TV, and the other end connects to the coaxial cable that goes to the TV (RF out) jack on the converter box.

Has anyone figured out IF such a digital anntenna exist yet?


You don't need a digital antenna; any indoor UHF/VHF antenna will work. The antenna and the TV both connect to the converter box, not to each other.

A standard rabbit ears (UHF/VHF) antenna with flat wire (300 ohm) connections can be hooked up to the coaxial cable that goes to the Antenna (RF in) jack on the converter box by using a balun (Radio Shack catalog # 15-1297, about $8). If you have an antenna with coaxial cable already attached, you don't need the balun.

To connect the TV to the converter box, you need an adapter that has an F jack on one end and a 1/8" plug on the other (Radio Shack catalog # 278-257, about $5).

Need adator for DTV converter box.


The converter box needs an antenna, but not the one built into the TV. In fact, you should get an antenna designed for the new DTV broadcasts to get the best reception. There are a number of styles and they start at under $10.

To connect the converter box to the TV, you have a couple of options. You can use the channel 3 or 4 output from the box and connect the cable to the TV external antenna jack with the appropriate adapter. Or, since this TV also works as a monitor, you could use the converter box video and audio outputs instead. If the TV has a single A/V input jack instead of separate audio and video jacks (the usual case), Radio Shack and other vendors sell the adapter cable you'll need. One might have been supplied with the TV.

Are there converters 4 hand held casio 880B


I have my handheld Casio TV-980 up and running with a converter box. All I needed (in addition to the converter box and standard rabbit ears [UHF/VHF] antenna) was an adapter with an F jack on one end and a 1/8" plug on the other (Radio Shack catalog # 278-257, about $5). The 1/8" plug on the adapter goes in the external antenna jack on the TV, and the other end connects to the coaxial cable that goes to the TV (RF out) jack on the converter box. The adapter would have been a little cheaper at my local, independent electronics store, but they were sold out.
 
If your antenna has flat 300 ohm wire connections, you'll need a balun (Radio Shack catalog # 15-1297, about $8) to connect it to the coaxial cable that goes to the Antenna (RF in) jack on the converter box.
 
I’ve tried 2 different converter boxes with the handheld TV, and they both work well: Insignia (Best Buy’s house brand, same as Zenith) and RCA (from Target, same as Venturer), so any government coupon-eligible converter box should work.
 
A few other tips:
 
1. I always turn on the converter box before I turn on the TV. The cpnverter box seems to take control better that way.
 
2. When I turn on the TV, the tuner doesn’t automatically go to channel 3 or 4 (where it should be set when using a converter box), and the picture quality is poor. If I use the tuner on the TV to get to channel 3 or 4, the picture quality is vastly improved. I have to do that every time I turn on the TV.
 
3. Placement of the antenna is very important. I like to watch my handheld TV when I'm on the computer, and the reception is better the further away from the computer the antenna is located. I'm actually using a 6' coaxial cable for the antenna, but I could also have used 2 shorter cables with a coupler that has an F jack at both ends (Radio Shack catalog # 278-304, about $3).

Hello,
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

EXT means external input,i.e.from an outside or alternate source.

That source could be a DVD / VCR , cable box, video game,etc.

2) New dvd/vcr recorders allow A / V inputs only,usually obtained

from a source box ( cable or satellite ) They do not have coax cable input/output,also known as RF in/RF out.

3)The dvd/vcr manufacturer expects the consumer to upgrade equipment periodically.If your TV or A/V receiver ( surround sound) has a video monitor output,problem solved!

 

Hope I helped you ......T.
