The coaxial end does not fit on it. has to have an adapter. I thought maybe it was a rca plug, so bought a F female to RCA male, nope it is not an RCA plug. I have ther manual. it does not say what the adapter is. i DO NOT NEED 75/300 OHM ADAPTER, MY END IS ALREADY 300 OHM BUT WON'T FIT RECEIVER PLUG. THANKS Sorry not yelling, caps stuck sorry

    it is an F connector same as your tv's coax. Now just srew on a cable and splice out the other end or if you are good just slpice it up and expose the center conductor or a better way is that you can get the soler type F connectors at radioshack and just solder a 22 gauge speaker wire (10 - 15 feet long) to the connectors center and ground connections. Now just tear apart the other end for about 3 feet and spread them apart and tear off the jacket for about 1 inch now you have your Y antennae

This is your manual http://www2.yamaha.co.jp/manual/pdf/av/english/re/HTR-5230.pdf

this is the 300 ohm adapter you need from radio shack and just install some small gauge speaker wire to it. or just splice the one that came with your receiver.

I moved the Mintek Tv from my bedroom to the living room, the tv cable cord will not screw into the Tv, I was told that I need a adapter, coax to av-rca, is this correct? What do you think?


Not sure due to lack of information to go on
I. think you need a tv coaxial female to f plug male adapter
really depends on the TV cable cord what is the gender of the end of the cable if it is coaxial male then the adapter needs a female coxial
if the tv has a female socket hole then the f type part of adapter needs to be a male.

The tv manual may shed some more info on the type of RF antenna coaxial connector. it uses.
RCA can be confused as av is to do with with hooking up a Video recorder with Video output being the yellow plug and audio with Red and white plugs.
http://www.4cabling.com.au/rca-audio-and-video-cable-10m.html?gclid=COyD3pvqpsUCFYqCvQodP38A1Q#.VUa9JZM_xhI
I think you need a RF coaxial adapter rather than AV RCA if you are connecting tv to a tv antenna or tv antenna splitter device.
there is a RCA standard that has adapter like below link http://www.radioparts.com.au/product/30255099/pa5099-%27f%27-plug-to-rca-socket-adaptor#.VUa7uJM_xhI
again gender types are needed to be considered before deciding if correct type of adapter..
You could research the rca rf standard to see if it is used in your country. My country uses Pal coaxial standard.

How to install external monitor to laptop if laptop does not support 15 pin plug from monitor


If your laptop does not have the 15 pin plug (VGA Port) then you will need to get some type of adapter that will make the monitor work. You probably have a DVI monitor.

You just need to make sure you get the correct type of adapter and make sure the ends that plug into the computer are correct such as male or female. For example think of the human male and female body parts when you look at adapters. The vga port on the computer is called a Female port, but the piece that plugs into it is called Male. It's the same with DVI ports.

I think you need a VGA Male to a DVI Female so below is a link to one and for $2.54 from Cable Wholesale.

Below is a picture of what it looks like.

I have a Philips MC235B micro stereo system, but I'm too dumb to figure out the FM antenna connector type. Any help would be great, thank you!


Hi,
If it is a plug, it is probably the PAL connector so you would need a PAL female on your coax lead.
There is a great reference at the FM Antenna Connector and Adapter Guide with pictures:

I'm trying to connect my cablevision coax to my Pioneer VSX-1019 reveiver so I can listen to FM radio through the tuner. The antenna connection on the receiver is a female European PAL (also called as...


Is this what you need? http://cgi.ebay.com/4pc-Gold-Plated-Aerial-Female-Aerial-Female-Adapter-/180435080974?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item2a02c4d70e
although I would be surprised if the signal you have would be correct to supply your fm tuner, you may be better off with something like this (depends on how good your fm signal is locally) http://cgi.ebay.com/FM-AERIAL-KIT-RADIO-RECEIVERS-BALUN-UNIVERSAL-/310283558296?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_3&hash=item483e575d98#ht_2068wt_876
Alternatively, and I know this sounds crude, poke a long piece of wire into the centre of the aerial socket on your tuner and pin it to the wall or a door frame, it often works if you have a decent signal to begin with.

Changing cable port


The monitor is a Fujitsu VL-15DX5G. 15 inch LCD.

The monitor cable uses a female DFP20 connector.
(Display Port 20-pin)

http://auction.thumbnail.image.rakuten.co.jp/@0_auc/image50/cb/4a/00010523850/a1/85/img00149858603.jpg

So you need a male DFP20 to male DVI-D adapter, or adapter cable.

DFP20 Male to plug into the monitor cable, and Male DVI-D (Dual) to plug into the graphics card's, female DVI-D connection.

So far, all I have found from a quick search is a Male DFP20 to Female DVI-D adapter, such as this example,

http://www.worldofcables.com/store/viewitem.asp?idproduct=768

Of course this won't do.

IF, this is all that's available for DFP20 adapters, you'll need an adapter of Male DVI-D to Male DVI-D, also. (Yes, I am aware of how crazy that sounds)

(It would appear, adapters are sold to connect a normal DVI-D monitor cable, {Male}, to a computer with a female DFP20 connector)

Should your searching only find DVI-D female to DFP20 male adapters, or adapter cables, then here is an example of a DVI-D male to DVI-D male adapter,

http://www.kvconnection.com/product-p/m-sgc-dvid-mm.htm

(DVI-D male to DVI-D male cable would probably be better as there would be less strain on the graphics card's DVI-D connection)

I've just bought a Altech AEC High Definition Digital TV Receiver and even though I'm not a blond female (sorry nothing against blonds) I'm finding it hard to understand the instruction booklet as to how...


Hi mrs Grumpy well this is a difficult task doing this blindly not knowing what you have there But I will try to explain the fundamentals.

First you have a coax (black cord ) from the external antenna. That goes directly to the antenna in on the set top box.
From that box you need a cable that has male and female plugs on black coax that goes from STB to the ANT IN of the Video recorder. Then from the VIDEO recorder ANT out Take that to the TV Now you might not have the right cables as Ins and Outs have different plugs on them You need some that are Male to Male and Male to Female The female plugs are O with and o inside them ( cant reproduce it in text) Males are an O with a pin inside them . so looking back at your connections From the wall to thje set top box is Antenna in is a female plug and Antenna out is a male plug. so check what cords you need to plug these together in the sequence I have outlined.

You will also need some different types of plugs that came with the STB that will be colored RED YELLOW and WHITE connect these from the OUT to the AUDIO/Video in the same color sequence to the recorder Than the next set of colored plougs from The recorders Audio Video OUT to the TV. Now it should all be connected cotrrectly You TV set TO AV should show the channel that is selected on the STB. Use the STB remote to change channel preference for viewing.

Get back to me if you need to cloarify anything.

Cheers Thank you for using FIXYA and please rate the help box.

I can recieve on my CB but cannot transmit


sounds like thats a regular antenna wire. cb radio normally have a pl259 plug. and you need a propper cb antenna not one that has am/fm plug. cb antennas require tuning using a SWR meter.

External FM antenna


The fix for the problem is simply go to Radioshack and purchase their part number 278-267 which is an "F" jack to 1/8" Male Plug. The cost is $6.09. This should solve your problem. The 75-Ohm antenna plug can now be screwed or connected to the "F" connector.

Cable in connection


Hi,

Most TV models/cable providers uses the F type of coaxial connector as shown below. 7c21c7e.jpg
However, some versions intended for other regions (Europe & Middle East) uses the PAL type of connector likewise shown below.
be2f30d.jpg
If your model uses the latter and your cable provider uses the F type, what you need is a straight F type Female to PAL Male adapter. Or it could even be just the other way around.
f66d800.jpg
They are available in most electronic parts/supply store or online. You can try here, here or here.

Hope that this be of idea/help. Pls post back how things turned up, r should you need additional information and/or if your cable connectors are of different types. A photo of the connectors would be nice.

Good luck and kind regards.
