The RCA TV F25432 has two holes in the back, one labeled F and one labeled S. There is also a place to attach the antenna and something called a G link. I purchased a Zenith converter box but don't know how to hook up the cables. I connected converter boxes to two other TVs with no problem. What do you suggest?

Good: Connect the antenna to the converter box where it says antenna/in. Connect the coax cable to where it says to tv/out on the converter box. Connect this cable to the coax/rf input on the television. Plug in and turn on the converter box and the television. Make sure the television is on channel 3 and follow the setup process that pops up on the screen.
Better: Connect RCA cables to the converter box where the yellow red and white holes are. Connect them to an RCA input on your television. If you don't have a red hole on the television that's ok, just connect yellow and white and leave the red plug dangling. Connect the antenna to the converter box where it says antenna/in. Plug in everything and turn everything on. Press the video/input/source button until you have located the setup screen for the converter box and follow the directions on the screen.
The converter box is connected correctly. When you use the coverter remote to torn it on you should see a blinking light that changes to steady when you are good to go. You have to program the converter box to receive the channels you want to watch. This usually is accomplished with an autosearch function selected when you press setup on your remote. Be sure the TV is on so you can see the autosearch in action
Your TV will require a Digital Converter Box to recieve over the air Digital Television Signals. You will need to hook up the antenna to the converter box and then hook your converter box to the TV. Hooking your television directly to a digital antenna will not get you Digital signals...only analog signals.
Basically, you cannot use the coax connections for both the VCR and the RCA converter box. I would hook up the phono/cinch connectors from the VCR to the TV if you can (these are also called RCA connectors, but I'm avoiding using that name so we dont confuse the digital receiver with a cable/connector name that is the same here). There should be a yellow one for video and red/white ones for left and right stereo. I believe the RCA converter comes with a three headed cable that can do this for you. With this configuration, you can set the TV to input on these connectors and the VCR should always output there. Once that is set, you can still use the converter box to receive the signal from your antenna, then run the coax to the VCR. Now, the VCR will always have to be set on channel 4 in your setup and you will need to manually change channels on the converter box for it to record a show. Does this make sense so far?
I understand that but on your cable box there should be audio out jacks just like on mine. It will say audio out. On some cable boxes there is a video in. Another way is to go to a local Radioshack or place like that and buy an AV switch. They are about $10-$20.
The audio out jacks in the back of the cable box can support up to 5.1 channels of audio to a home theater system. Take the DVD player and plug it into the TV with only the video cable and the audio cables into the theater syste. If you have and questions you can ask and if pictures are needed than I can post them.
If you ONLY have an Antenna or Cable input, you are going to need a Video & Audio to RF converter.. This connects to ya DVD Video & Sound OUT, and then connects to ya sets Antenna IN.
This device converts ya Video & Audio signal to Radio Frequency Signal that can be "Received" by ya set. (Basically a low power TV transmitter)
This is the only way I know of, if ya haven't got any other Inputs into a set.
