In the process of moving my TV, the cable cord got stuck and I pulled the cable connector out of the TV. Now there is no silver connector just the wires that it was attached to. How do I get this repaired and is it worth it?

Re: Cable cord connector
This unfortunately is a common issue that happens when moving televisions with the coaxial connection (the silver connector). Normally the best way to get this repaired is to bring it in to a local repair facility. I can't speak on the costs but they should be nominal, as long there wasn't any other internal components that were damaged.
Another repair option might be to purchase a digital converter box for your television as long as you have Audio/Video inputs. With the pending conversion to digital broadcasts this would be killing two birds with one stone.

The red-blue-green outputs of the cable box are COMPONENT video, and the yellow-white-red inputs on the tv are COMPOSITE video. Although the words sound almost alike and the connectors look similar, they are incompatible signals. You'll need to change either the cable box or the tv so they match. Maybe this would be a good way to rationalize getting that new home theater system! Or maybe call your tv cable company and ask for a different box with composite video output. Once the cable box matches the tv, you don't necessarily need to change the cables. If the connectors fit, go ahead and use the cables you have.
If you mean the plug on the end of your incoming cable line that connects to the back of the TV or cable box, Radio Shack sells replacements. You can get crimp-on ones (a good mechanical connection but requires a crimping tool, not expensive) or ones that twist onto the cable without special tools. If this is a connector on the end of a cable between a cable box or VCR and your TV, just get a new cable and don't worry about repair.
What you are calling the "antenna module" is actually the tuner. The connector that pulled out is called the F connector. The F connector can be soldered back onto the tuner but this is a very delicate procedure and is especially difficult if any of the coils in the area of the F connector have been bent, altered or moved. The tuner itself is not too expensive and is much easier to replace than trying to replace the F connector, especially if you have never done one before. If you use this set with a cable box then simply connect AV cables from the cable box to the TV set the TV to VIDEO.
