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?

Hook the converter box cables to the input RCA jacks on the back of the VCR, then hook the output RCA jacks to the input RCA jacks to the TV, Keep the VCR on channel 3 or 4, on the TV in menu scroll through the source settings to find the what source the vcr is using
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.
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.
The antena hole input in the Converter box that where said the input source said Ant.,use a antena like a digital antena,roof antena or a rabit ear antena.Hook up ur source of the antena go in that hole.The hole input said out to tv in the Converter box,use a cable that was supply to u,came with the Converter box.Use that cable plug in the Conveter box tv hole said out to tv.The other end of that cable go to ur tv Ant. hole.Now u got it all hook up.Turn ur tv to channel 3 or 4 now u got a menu from the Converter box,go down to the highlight word said scan channels,push that highlight word.Ater the scan are finish,u will now get all the free DTV channels.
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.
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.
