I would suggest to google "how to solder" and You tube has some instructional video that will help you on how is done.
Good Luck.

Coax to RCA plugs

You need a tuner. For example, you might try a vcr. Most vcr's have a tuner built in, and have rca outputs. Tune the vcr to the channel of the converter box output.

Will my TV receive digital signals without an external digital converter?

Hi, John.
No your tv is an older standard definition tv with an NTSC tuner..that was the old type tuner for analog stations.
You will need to get an ATSC digital tuner in order to tune in digital broadcasts.

Luckily, you don't have to spend hundreds to get one.
WalMart and several other stores carry inexpensive digital tuner converters that are in the $30-$40 range.

I hope this helps you out on getting stations picked up, as without the converter, your tv would only be good for hooking up a dvd player to it, or for video games.

Good luck tio you, and have a good day.

Tuner problem?

This is an indication of a bad ground connection. Since you have replaced the cable and splitter, it suggests an internal grounding problem. If you can solder and can get to the tuner, resolder the ground points within the tuner and update this with the results.

No channels above 47

That works great except I can get the tuner to program any channels above channel47. Is this a limitation of this older model TV yes there is limitation in old tv. is there some setting I can change in order to get more channels using the tv tuner? in INDIA what we do is put a remote control ckt which gives us about 250 channels. of course we replace tuner also called hyper tuner along with remote ckt or replace whole kit which are cheaply available.& serves the purpose. hope this will help

Teac USB2 TV TUNER Video Capture

Hi Betty, First of all, this tuner requires that your laptop support USB 2.0, if your laptop is fairly new (made within the last 2 years) you should have no problem. Make sure you install the software first, and then plug in the USB cable from the tuner to your laptop. Your laptop should see it, and install it automatically. Then plug the s-video cable from your VCR to your TV tuner. Also connect the audio cables (white and red cables) from the VCR to the tuner. That's it. Please let us know how this works for you, and if you need any additional troubleshooting. Best regards, nightdiver
