How to connect HDTV antenna to an old Sony Am Fm Radio Tv Receiver, Model Tv-413?

I would like to connect an HDTV antenna to my old Sony AM/FM Radio TV Model TV-413. It doesn't have a coax connector to match what most HDTV antennae have. Is there a workaround? Thanks.

    A much hyped up "digital antenna" is no different than any old type of antenna. The set doesn't know what it is connected to. You will have to cut the special plug off the end of the new antenna, and either install the 2 leads from the antenna directly to the TV terminals or locate a plug that the TV uses.Probably the old style F connector you can find anywhere. So much hype and sales garbage about an antenna being "digital". It's RF energy, all the antenna does is feed that signal to the TV. Mind you, that the TV radio combo will NOT receive digital broadcasts, just because you are using a digital antenna.

Yes there is an coax to ant adapter. Check walmart or Radio Shack if they are still in business.

    Coaxial FM antenna


    Radio Shack has an
    adapter catalog number 278-0291. It takes some effort to push the 278-0291
    adapter onto the FM UNBL 75 ohm terminal so wait until you have the 278-0291
    installed before you connect your 75 ohm coax on to your new adapter.

    This will resolve your FM screw on F connector antenna interface issue.


    I see others trying to
    help suggest using a 300 ohm to 75 ohm transformer match unit, this isn't what is needed. Your receiver antenna input IS a 75
    ohm input.

    FM antenna is not providing reception, despite cable connected to powered antenna amplifier. TV also connected to powered antenna amplifier (splitter) works fine. FM mode produces only static. I purchased...


    If I understand your setup, you've connected the receiver antenna terminal to the output of the antenna amplifier. If this is true, I'd suggest trying the receiver using a plain old FM dipole antenna (available at Radio Shack and other stores) or even just a piece of wire hooked to the antenna terminal. You should be able to pick up some local FM stations then.

    What might be happening is that the FM is being filtered out by the amplifier. Some amps made mainly as a TV signal booster have an FM trap designed to block the FM broadcast band. In the analog broadcast days, the FM band was right near the sound part of a TV signal, and the trap was there to prevent interference. It may be filtering out your FM band.It may also be possible that you're just overloading the FM antenna input with the amplified signal. Sometimes a signal can be too strong. Using a simple wire antenna will let you test the receiver by itself.

    Other than connecting an antenna you shouldn't have to do any setup for FM reception. If you still get no stations at all when using a simple antenna, then the receiver may need service. But I doubt Circuit City would have sold a floor model that was defective, even at the very end, unless it was clearly marked as such and sold "as-is". I'm pretty sure you'll find that the receiver works with an antenna made for FM.

    The static level is so high I am unable to hear the radio.


    Under menu, select FM frequency. Try using different frequency. A nearby FM station could be bleeding its signal onto the FM frequency your unit is using by default.

    Am/fm radio stations not clear... I have the AM antenna attached... but there is no attachment for FM


    First of all check for any nearby source of interference.....Move your unit away from all computers, fluorescent lights, neon lights, microwaves, cell phones, and cell phonemag-glass_10x10.gif chargers. These devises tend to produce noise in the medium frequency band, where AM radio is broadcast.
    If the unit plugs into the wall with a nonpolarized plug (where both prongs are the same size), try reversing the plug inmag-glass_10x10.gif the outlet. Moving the plug to another outlet might help, too.
    check for fault in the antenna lead, (common) or bad earth on the antenna to body
    If you don't have an antenna connected to your FM receiver,With a receiver or tuner, connect a wire-loop or T-shaped dipole FM antenna to the back of your unit. Move the antenna until you get the cleanest signal. Use a signal-strength meter or display to gauge signal strength if your unit has one.
  • Step 2 If you're still not getting a good signal, try an indoor amplified antenna, which you'll find at an electronics store. Don't buy one unless you get a guarantee that you can return it for full credit if it doesn't solve your reception problems.
  • Step 3 If your signal is weak because you live a long way from the transmitter, install an outside antenna and mount it as high as is practical. If you're primarily interested in getting signals from one station or from a group of stations in one direction, get a directional antenna and point it toward the transmitters.
  • Step 4 If you're using a portable FM radio where the only antenna is the power cord, stretch the cord as straight as possible and experiment with positioning again.
  • Step 5 Temporarily switch to monaural mode to improve a weak signal on an FM receiver.

    Improve reception


    HI there,

    Well Yes you can improve the reception, please follow the below steps -

    Improve FM Radio Reception -
     
    1. If you don't have an antenna connected to your FM receiver, purchase a simple dipole antenna--a simple T-shape flexible wire-- and connect it to the FM antenna inputs on the receiver. Because FM signals are directional, you'll want to experiment with the positioning of the wire to find the best reception of the station you're trying to receive.
     
    2. If you're still not getting a good signal, try an indoor amplified antenna, which you'll find at an electronics store. Don't buy one unless you get a guarantee that you can return it for full credit if it doesn't solve your reception problems.
     
    3. If your signal is weak because you live a long way from the transmitter, install an outside antenna and mount it as high as is practical. If you're primarily interested in getting signals from one station or from a group of stations in one direction, get a directional antenna and point it toward the transmitters.
     
    4. If you're using a portable FM radio where the only antenna is the power cord, stretch the cord as straight as possible and experiment with positioning again.
     
    5. Temporarily switch to monaural mode to improve a weak signal on an FM receiver.


    Improve AM Reception -
     
    1. Gradually rotate the radio 360 degrees. Leave it in the position where it sounds best.
     
    2. Reverse the AC plug if it isn't polarized. (If you can flip the plug over, then it's non-polarized.)
     
    3. Plug the radio into a different AC outlet.
     
    4. Move the radio closer to a window.
     
    5. Experiment to learn if appliances and powered products in your home are causing interference: computer monitor, television, electric blanket, light dimmer, fluorescent light, hair dryer, air conditioner, smoke detector. If possible, turn off the offending item. Otherwise, move the radio to another room.
     
    6. Upgrade to an external antenna if your receiver, tuner or radio has a place to connect one.
     
    7. Buy a passive AM antenna that doesn't need to be connected to a radio or receiver.

    Good Luck!!

    Thanks

    Hi...
    Some cable companies dont put the FM band on cable and some others put an FM trap (which kills the FM band) in line with the cable.
    One of those is your problem.
