are there screw terminals that it connects too? if not but the wire is exposed like you said splice into it add in one of the transformers that has the rf end on the end of it. i would recomend some strain relief
A long time ago I used to see adapters that would allow a 75 ohm to 300 ohm connection for the older TV sets. These may not be easy to find anymore.
Considering all things practical and the age of the set, there comes a time when it is the time to get a new set! At least the new set will be compatible and you will be able to enjoy a better quality of performance.
Hello Ann, I will try to help you, well if your for sure about the Manufactur date on the T.V., then yes you will need a digital converter box, also it is suggested to have an outdoor UHF/VHF antenna with coax to attach to your converter box, the old rabbit ears aren't suggested. I hope this helps in getting you prepared for Feb. 19, 2009 when all T.V. stations broadcasting will convert to the new signal. Thank You and Have great day.
You will have to go to Radio Shack or Wall Mart, maybe Home Depot and get a matching transformer. That will have spade terminals on one end to connect to your tv and a round (75ohm male thread) to hook to your converter box.
You can hook it up through the antennae system. Keep your dvr connected to the tv the way you had it. Hook up your TV rabbit ears antennae to the converter box in the connection on the left side of the box. Then hook up the antennae lead from the converter box to your TV on the right side connector. The only thing I'm wondering is, do you get stereo sound this way and does anyone know how to get it without hooking up the separate audio and video plugs? There aren't enough connections on the tv to hook up both sets.
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.
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.
