Question about Sony KV-20M42 20" TV

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??
Thanks

    Clark, Thanks for your prompt response and the Quick Fix. I'll do that tomorrow morning.



    Can't get much simpler than that. :)

    I only need them to work for a few days. And here in Canada, television is being switched to digital but not until 2010, so there's not the same urgency as folks here in the U.S.

    I appreciate your feedback. TY

Your rabit ears will sadly only work for about 2 weeks though! its not quite worth the cost as the new law in the states is making rabit ears useless.

Rabbit ears to digital conversion box


A long time ago I used to see adapters that would allow a 75 ohm to 300 ohm connection for the older TV sets. These may not be easy to find anymore.

Considering all things practical and the age of the set, there comes a time when it is the time to get a new set! At least the new set will be compatible and you will be able to enjoy a better quality of performance.

Is this tv set up for the digital switch in Feb.


If the TV was manufactured in 1993, it is NOT ready for the digital switch. If you have cable or satellite, you don't need to do anything because the cable or satellite box will do the swith for you. If you are using an outside antenna (rabbit ears) you will need to get a converter box. Hope this answers your question

Digital signal conversion


If you have cable TV, satellite TV, or FIOS, the coupon eligible converter boxes aren't needed and aren't useful with those services.
They gov't coupon converter boxes are only good for reception with a regular TV antenna or rabbit ears.

According to the specs on epinions.com, no, this TV does not have a digital tuner. So, if you use a rooftop TV antenna (not satellite dish) or an indoor TV antenna, you WILL need an ATSC to NTSC converter box. You need not wait until next year, however, as most U.S. TV stations are also broadcasting digital (ATSC) now.

Sony rabbit ears


The "Horse Shoe Like Ends" on the leads are installed under the Screws marked ANTENNA and then the screws tightened. If No Screws then your Rabbit Ears do not hook directly to this TV. Is there a connector comming out of the back that is Threaded? If YES, then this is your antenna connector (R59) and will require an Adapter for the rabbit ears. Available at Radio Shack.

You should be able to use your remote control to do this.Your channel 73 is more than likely UHF 73 so you need to put your tv in the antenna setting rather than cable setting. Once you do this just input 73 with your remote. Hope this helps! Stargazer
