Possible to connect rabbit ears with prongs to Toshiba 27A43C ?
Moved in 2 weeks ago. I've had 2 Satellite installers refuse to install Dish due to the number of trees on our property. They claim they won't be able to get a clear signal. So I phoned the Cable company because there are cable outlets in two rooms? But the installer arrived today and there is no cable to the house for whatever reason, we don't know? They had to reschedule the appointment until they can send two techs to string the line. 72 hours if I'm lucky.
Meanwhile, I noticed some of the posts on here dealing with Rabbit Ears and newer TV's?
I have Rabbit Ears but they have the prong type connections that slid under a screw and were tightened down.
My question is, can they be connected to a newer style TV with (jack?) plugs.
If so, How do I do this??

Please, start thinking of "outdoor" HDTV antenna installation. You must of be in use of TV's SD tuner and "rabbit ears" or so. Only outdoor or "roof" antenna will solve your issue. Unless you have another option: satellite, cable, verizon? Check with them, first. Need antenna? Call Alex's Television.
It looks like you have lost the signal for the 119 satellite from your dish. Are you getting an error message, either 002 or 015, saying the satellite signal has been lost or acquiring satellite signal? First, check the cables on the back of the receiver to make sure they are secure. You can also run a check switch test to see if there is a problem between your dish and receiver.
Press the Menu button on your remote. This will bring up the Main Menu on your TV screen. Input the numbers: 6 (System Setup), 1 (Installation), and 1 (Point Dish). On the right side of the Point Dish screen are 3 buttons. Select the Check Switch button. Within the 2 large boxes are satellite numbers and green or red boxes. Make a note of the satellite numbers (should be 119, 110), the trans, the device, and switch. Super dish and alternate should not be checked. Select the Test button on the bottom of the screen. If a box pops up with a warning about TV 2, select Yes. It will now run the check switch test. Let it complete the test. After completion, the screen will automatically go back to the Installation Summary screen. You may get a message stating that the Check Switch test has found fewer satellites than previously detected. If you get this message cancel out of each screen (do not save the results) till you are back to the TV screen and it is acquiring Satellite signal.
If you don't get that error message, see if the information on the Installation Summary has changed. Then select Done on the next 2 screens and cancel out of the others till you get the message, Acquiring Satellite Signal. After it finishes acquiring satellite signal and downloads the program guide, see if you are getting a picture - try different channels. If you still have problems, please email me at, email@example.com. If you are still experiencing problems, we will need to send a technician to fix the problem.
You should not have had to choose cable or air. When you have satellite it is considered the same thing as cable. Air is over the air rabbit ears antenna free programming. When you are connecting a satellite receiver you only have to turn to channel 3 or pick the correct av, component or hdmi input. Oh you must be connecting more than one television to the same satellite receiver. When that is the case tv #2 usually has to be set on a different channel and the satellite tv company tells you which channel. You still use the satellite remote to change channels and leave this television on one channel at all times. This television is good enough for its own hd satellite receiver connected with component cables or an hdmi cable though in order for you to see its full potential for displaying hd programs.
The ultimate would be a satellite dish. Also, If you know where the broadcast stations are near-by then you can get a small outside or rabbit ear antenna along with the hd converter box that has RCA jacks for video output then your all set to go.
That unit has a NTSC tuner. May be HD Ready but it does not have a digital tuner. Unless you live quiet close to a local Broadcaster, rabbit ears would be useless.
The only way you would be able to get HD is using a HD Set Top Box, HD Satellite System,
or HD Cable BOX, using the Componet or HDMI inputs.
Hope this helps
I recommend you restore your computer using the system recovery application. Hopefully you have a back-up for your other files. This is the only sure way to restore your system back to factory setting and restore your missing files. Good Luck.
should go from your satellite to dish box might say sat on bck of box then the next [connection think says tv that should go to tv itsself or dvd vcr whatever ur hooking up to it then from that point hook it to ur tv
that sound is comming from the tube anode it is leaking you have to discharge the high voltage from the anode cap,then take off the cap clean the area with alcohol and put some red or clear silicone on the cap and anode connection replace back the cap on the tube leave to dry for about half hour,this will remedy your problem,no more static.good luck.
