I have a JVC TV with an aerial port instead of the tradtional coax male connector (model # AV-29VS24). I have the adaptor for the coax cable, but I can get no satellite (Dish) signal/programming when I connect it to the TV.
What I've tried: Signal is perfectly received when using another TV with traditional coax male connector. JVC TV works perfectly when connected to a traditional VCR via RCA jack, but cannot get satellite reception. Changing the input makes no difference. Changing VCR/TV makes no difference. Help.
Your t.v is having only RFin , and if you connecting dish receiver , normaly their are two o/p for receiver one is RF and two is for audio out and video out. if your connecting direct RFout to t.v RF in then you have to tune the t.v in all bands. if your receiver do not having RFout facility, then you have to connect AV out to converter and then RFin of t.v. if you having a vcr, then connect AVout of dish receiver to vcr AVin and then vcr RFout to t.v again tune the t.v and pwer on the vcr.

This sounds like a cable issue. Assuming your Dish receiver is connected to your TV with a HDMI cable (ends are rectangular and the connector is trapezoid in shape), you can first attempt to switch HDMI ports on the back of your TV. If you get the same message, you can try flip the cable end for end -- plug the TV end into the receiver and the receiver end into the TV (I know, sounds silly, but has worked for me). Next is a new (better -- don't get a $5 cable, most good HDMI cables start close to $20 and up depending on length).
Now if you happen to be connecting via a "standard" TV cable (RG 6), first make sure that the cable is screwed on snuggly (no wrench needed, just finger tight). Next is to get a new cable.
that coaxial cable with male end has to be connected to '' tv antenna in '' connector of your tv ....... to find whether any ac adaptor is required for your indoor antenna just observe all sides of that antenna ....... if any male or female connector is there means definitely it requires adaptor ( size will be smaller then coaxial cable's male end connector ) .... click 1 st link to see whether your antenna is like that ..... if no means check 2nd link ............ once your antenna's model no is identified it will be easy to clear all doubts ....... it may require 9 volts or 12 volts adaptor ..... Recoton's universal adaptor is available ( check 3rd link ) ...... so check these links & tell us .... then we can find exact details of your antenna .......... if possible take picture of your antenna (all sides) & email to me (email@example.com ) ....
You should check the coax cable between the receiver and the LNB on the dish. Assuming that you can get to the dish, disconnect from the LNB - the connection will probably be covered with tape. Disconnect the cable from the receiver end. Examine both connectors and make sure that there are no stray bit of copper causing the short. With a meter, test the resistance between the centre pin and the outer screwed sleeve. The resistance should be very high. > 100Kohm. If it is a short or only a few ohms, you will probably need to replace the cable. If it varies the cable may be water logged. Damaged cable is not worth repairing even if you can find the problem area. Where I live, a bit further south than you - squirrels like to eat the insulation - and finding the damage is a waste of time. You can probably use the original couplings but don't forget to cover them with self amalgamating tape after you have checked your repair.
Hope this helps. If you are unsure or not happy about ladders then leave it to an aerial rigger.
Go purchase a coax male f connector, and the crimpers. Cut off 1/2 inch of rubber sleeving and fold the metal shielding back. Now cut the with part a quarter from the end but not all the way. You want the center piece to poke out. Now slide the f connector on and crimp.
There might be a bad (loose) connection in the RF isolator or the tuner (both are silver boxes. Try to unplug the coax and bend the RCA tabs in so that the connection gets firmly made when reconnected. This may help. If it does not The connector may have to be replaced.
The coax connector you describe is called the F connector and the silver box it is attached to is called the tuner. The original F connector or a replacement F connector can be soldered back into the tuner, but the metal frame of the tuner must be straightened out and the center pin must be delicately reattached too. This is quite an easy job but requires some labor, assuming that nothing was jammed into the tuner when the F connector was out and the coils behind the F connector have not been disturbed. I usually charge about $40 to reattach F connectors but if I have to replace the tuner I charge about $50 because it is a lot less labor to replace the tuner and they can be purchased for about $25.
