Is there such a thing as a co-ax cable to input converters?
I believe my co-ax hook up on my tv is going bad because it is a little fuzzy and the cable runs off the co-ax cable. When I play a DVD which runs off the inputs it is clear. Is there a product out there that will allow me to plug the co ax cable into it and convert that to using the inputs? Thanks

Re: Is there such a thing as a co-ax cable to input...
Before you go that far, realize that the cable itself may be the problem. Usually poor picture quality can be traced to poor cable connections. Also, another possibility is poor connections inside the tuner of the set. I assume that you are using a cable box. Some of the newer boxes have direct video connections which will connect as you describe. Check the condition of all of the cables and connectors before yo invest in anything.

Hard to believe you do not have any "F" connectors on the VCR/DVD. What brand is this? You should have inputs and outputs for separate composite and audio. Using phono cords with male ends you should be able to go to and from your television for recording and watching. It will mean alot of changing to go from one mode to the other but should be doable provided your tv has composite in/out. Your owners manual should show a diagram to hook the unit up this way. If you get stuck email me and I'll try to walk you through it. Give me as much info as you can on inputs and outputs. Let me know.
Check first that the Co-Ax cable is firmly plugged into your SKY box in your lounge.
(I'm assuming that the carpet fitters did NOT put a nail thru your co-ax cable or pushed the cable onto any metal carpet grippers???)
If they might have done this accidentally, then, that's why it doesn't work!
Then make sure that the co-ax cable is plugged firmly into your second TV. Sometimes the central connector within the co-axial socket becomes loose and needs nipping back together with a pair of long-nosed pliers.
I'm assuming that you have plugged the Infra-red remote eye unit back into the second TV aerial socket - before you plugged the co-ax cable back in?
If you have, press the SKY remote to see if the Infra-red LED can be seen in the remote pod.
Finally, make sure that you have selected the correct channel number (or Input) on your second TV remote to select SKY.
The older TV's will normally only have inputs for co-ax cables labeled "antenna in" and "out to TV. In this case you will need to use those or get an audio/video converter. It has connections on it for S-video, the red white and yellow audio/video cables that you mentioned, as well as co-ax. Cost less than $20.00. That should fix your problem. Hope this helps you.
The converter box receives hte digital signals and converts them into either channel 3 or 4, or into direct video (red,white,yel). The output of the converter box must go into the VCR input for recording to work. Before the conversion, the tuner of hte VCR would receive the RF signal the same as the TV. The tuner inside the VCR is an analog tuner not digital, so it needs the conversion too. Most converters will provide both the A/V signal (R/Wh/Y) and RF (coax connector).
Just run red and white composite audio cables from the audio out ports above the AVin1 ports on the back of the tv to one of the audio input ports on the home theater system, remember which input port you connected it to and when you want to watch tv with the home theater sound just switch to that input on the home theater system.
Good Day, aprilpatino;
If your TV has video, components or HDMI inputs you can by pass the 'rf' connector. You must have a cable, sat box or vcr in order to do so. Hook cable output from 'box' to the TV's input. Change TV's input with remote for the proper 'hooked-up' input.
Good Luck, Big Irish.
If your cable converter box has audio/video connections on the back of it,you don't need to worry about using that RF coax connector. Just hook it up the same way your DVD is hooked to the TV input jack. Get a 3-wire cable (yellow-red-white)hook it to the same colors on the back of the cable box and hook the other end to an unused input on the back of the TV. Then select that input with your remote and watch TV.
