There is a product call ed an RF modulator(~$35) you could Check w/Radio Shack. you could also use a VCR If the GE tv is less than 9 years old they have a very common cold solder problem in the grounding of the tuner section, A simple fix @ for most techs.

The only thing you can use to utilize the AV connector is to use a cable box or with AV ouputs.

Old TV

I can assume the input for your tv has only a coax input to it. Meaning a threaded connector on the back. If so, first connect the Wii to the input of the dvd player, second, from the output of the dvd player, this is where your solution is needed. run a coax cable from the tv to the DVD player and at the dvd player you will need an adapter from your local Radio Shack or electronics store. It should be a female coax to RCA adapter (male Red White and Yellow).Red and white for audio and yellow for video. Post a pic of the back of the tv if this doesnt solve it for you. Good luck, fingers crossed.

Not sure if I have one installed. Which of the 3 slots should it be in. What are the 2 cards I have installed now?

> not sure if have one installed.

One what?

Take a look at the connectors on the 2 cards.

Is one connector a VGA "video-output" connector?
If so, it's a video-card.

Is one connector a pair of sockets, with 4 gold wires per socket?
If so, it's a modem.

Is one connector a single socket, with 8 gold wires?
If so, it's a network adapter.

Is one connector an oval "female", with 25 holes?
If so, it's a parallel-port adapter, for an older-style printer.

Is one connector a thin slot (or a pair of thin slots) ?
If so, it's a USB adapter, for connecting USB devices.

Is one connector a standard coax cable (such as on the back of your TV) ?
If so, it's a TV-input card, to turn your computer into a TV-receiver.

How many instrument and power cables in one cctv

Hi a simple CCTV one camera system is 1 pair of power wires (1 positive 1 negative) and 1 piece of coax cable with BNC connectors at both ends. (usually rg59 but RG6 is better)

Things to be aware of:

Cameras come in both 12v DC OR 24Vac configurations some are capable of both but most models available to consumers run on 12v most professionals choose 24v models.

simple adapters used to convert from regular coax screw type connectors to either an RCA connector or BNC connector are available at Radio shack. If you need more than 1 or 2 its cheaper to get them on ebay.

You can connect a BNC equipped camera to an input on your TV by using one of these adapters. *put an RCA connector on the end and plug it into one of the yellow video inputs on the TV.

I have a Motorola Quasar TV and an outside UHF Antennae. I have coax coming from Ant. There are 3 coax connectors on the back and one pair of screw terminals for 300 ohm flat lead in cable that is...

You are losing a VERY small amount of signal using the transformer. It won't even be noticeable I'm sure if you switch to the coax in but the fewer connections you go through the less the chance of a bad connection. Use regular " Ant. In " coax connection or " RF in" whichever the wording is on the back of your set. Good Luck!

HD cable question

It sounds like you dont have the right HD box. When connecting HD you will use an HDMI cable or a component cable consisting of 5 cable total 3 for video two for audio. Coax cable is not used to connect HD to your TV / Monitor.

I cant find a aux on my tv to hook up the dvd.

I am guessing that your game is hooked to the cable connector on the back of the tv and is switched. Do you know you can get a special adapter that uses the rca jacks (white,red,yellow) out of the dvd to the adapter and then out of the adapter with coax to the cable connector on the tv where the signal goes. I think you can get them at WalMart or Radio Shack. Upgraded tv's have the red white and yellow inputs for dvd. Hope this helps.

Female coax connector in tv bad?

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.
