I guess you answered the question right then....., you need the antenna. If you've lost the antenna, I'd suggest a piece of wire, not too thick though... As for the AM, that uses a loop antenna, so you might have difficulties with that one.
Normally when receiver keeps entering protection mode it means wires are crossed or touching somehwere. Double check all speaker wire connections at the receiver and speakers. More than likey the positive and negative wires are touching at one of the terminals.
Your TV will require a Digital Converter Box to recieve over the air Digital Television Signals. You will need to hook up the antenna to the converter box and then hook your converter box to the TV. Hooking your television directly to a digital antenna will not get you Digital signals...only analog signals.
The AM loop antenna needs to connect between the terminals marked as "AM ANT" and "GND" on the rear top right corner of the amp. This is the normal configuration for a loop antenna. The other option(not using a loop antenna) is to connect "GND" with a single insulated wire to a decent earth connection (2 m copper stake hammered into the ground or a water pipe, and a single wire elevated as long and as high as you can. this style of antenna system is not generally used these days, as the transmission power of radio stations has increased greatly over the years so that a small loop antenna will do the job So, most stations should be tunable with just the loop, remember however, that it will be directional. If the loop is in proximity to other electronic gear, it may not perform as well. Keep it as far away from the rest of your gear as you can.
You will generally get no AM stations AT ALL until you have connected the loop to both terminals. Happy to talk to you further about this. Please rate my solution. Cheers
The cable that goes into the TV sould come from the VCR output to TV plug.
The antenna input to the VCR should come from the antenna or DTV converter box.
The signal passes through or loops through the VCR.
If you hve a manual the connections are on pages 14 an 15.
Let me know if there are any problems and a time you might be hooking this up.
Hooking up the AM antenna loop should not have fried anything, as I know lots of peeps who have done that. The FM RF amp. sounds like it may be at fault. The only way to tell if its bad is by hooking up an RF generator and I would be surprosed if you had one of those laying around. Disconnect the unit and take it to a repair shop.. If its an older model Time to get a new one. Good Luck
