Question about Samsung HC-R4755W 47" HDTV
The top terminal marked ant 1 broke off a few years ago. I was still able to use my DirectTV hook up by using the ANT 2 (cable terminal). My problem is that I moved the tv to the basement where I only an antenna hook up (no cable or DirectTV) and now I can't get a signal when I plug in an antenna to the Ant 2 (cable) terminal.
Questions: 1. Should it make any difference if I plug my antenna cable into Ant 1 or Ant2?
2. If it does not make any difference, suggestions on getting a signal?
3. If I have to use Ant 1, any suggestion since I don't have an Ant 1 terminal?
I also tried hooking up a VCR to it and did not work. Could I have just damaged something in the move. My menu still come up and I can do a start up.
Suggestions, Thanks Dave
Well Dave have a tech come out and solder your ANT1 connection back on its a simple job that will probably set you back $50.00 or less.

1 Find and disconnect the cable that is connected to the
ANT IN terminal on your cable box.
? This terminal might be labeled "ANT IN", "VHF IN" or
2 Connect this cable to a two-way splitter.
3 Connect an Antenna cable between an OUT terminal on
the splitter and the IN terminal on the cable box.
4 Connect an Antenna cable between the ANT OUT terminal
on the cable box and the B-IN terminal on the RF(A/B)
5 Connect another cable between the other OUT terminal on
the splitter and the A-IN terminal on the RF (A/B) switch.
6 Connect the last Antenna cable between the OUT terminal
on the RF (A/B) switch and the ANT IN (AIR/CABLE)
terminal on the back of the TV.
After you have made this connection, set the A/B switch to the
"A" position for normal viewing. Set the A/B switch to the "B"
position to view scrambled channels. (When you set the A/B
switch to "B", you will need to tune your TV to the cable box's
output channel, which is usually channel 3 or 4.)
