The "Horse Shoe Like Ends" on the leads are installed under the Screws marked ANTENNA and then the screws tightened. If No Screws then your Rabbit Ears do not hook directly to this TV. Is there a connector comming out of the back that is Threaded? If YES, then this is your antenna connector (R59) and will require an Adapter for the rabbit ears. Available at Radio Shack.

A simple set of rabbit ears should suffice. You'll also need to use the remote's menu to change the input settings from cable to local.

Rabbit ears to digital conversion box


Your TV is old enough to have not only screw terminals for the antenna, but it sounds like it has separate UHF and VHF terminals as well. Pick up a 75-ohm to 300-ohm adapter (available at Radio Shack and probably most other places that sell TV's and antennas). This is a small cylinder-shaped part with a threaded antenna connector on one end, and a flat wire with two terminals on the other end. Connect the cable from the converter box to the round connector, hook the two terminals to the VHF antenna screws on your TV, put the TV on channel 3 and you'll be set.

You should also pick up a new antenna designed to work with digital broadcasting. If you use the old rabbit ears you were using before, you will probably not pick up all the channels available in your area.

SONY Trinatron 27" Gets No Reception


hello
What are you using to connect the rabbit ears to the tv, a 300 to 75 ohm plug assembly? it may have sprung the contacts in the rf socket of the tuner.
or The tuner has malfunctioned,
It may be switched to the wrong source as some tvs have more than one tuner input.
Thanks Guy9

No cable hookup


harvque- you can use rabbit ears to get the local free channels,but you will probably need to extend the wires and try to mount them outside.The main reason is because the newer tv's with digital tuners don't pick up as well as old school tuners,and the tv signals are not as strong cause they are usually boosted as the are wired in.Try this and let me know,I do have a few tricks for free air tv. cooltekFeb.18/08

Sony TV KV-32v26


Do you mean basic CABLE channels or Aerial channels? If aerial, what kind of antenna are you using (you must have SOME sort of antenna... rabbit ears, set-top, etc...)?
