Yes, there is a converter that is required for the Atari to connect to the tv. These are not readily easy to find at a local store. check with your local video game store, Radio Shack or look online for one. Ebay is a great place to find one.
Below is a link to Ebay, to show you what you are going to need.

I moved the Mintek Tv from my bedroom to the living room, the tv cable cord will not screw into the Tv, I was told that I need a adapter, coax to av-rca, is this correct? What do you think?


Not sure due to lack of information to go on
I. think you need a tv coaxial female to f plug male adapter
really depends on the TV cable cord what is the gender of the end of the cable if it is coaxial male then the adapter needs a female coxial
if the tv has a female socket hole then the f type part of adapter needs to be a male.

The tv manual may shed some more info on the type of RF antenna coaxial connector. it uses.
RCA can be confused as av is to do with with hooking up a Video recorder with Video output being the yellow plug and audio with Red and white plugs.

I think you need a RF coaxial adapter rather than AV RCA if you are connecting tv to a tv antenna or tv antenna splitter device.
there is a RCA standard that has adapter like below link http://www.radioparts.com.au/product/30255099/pa5099-%27f%27-plug-to-rca-socket-adaptor#.VUa7uJM_xhI
again gender types are needed to be considered before deciding if correct type of adapter..
You could research the rca rf standard to see if it is used in your country. My country uses Pal coaxial standard.

How to hook up my atari


It hooks up to the coaxial jack on the back of the tv ( antenna jack )
you will also have to get a Manual TV/Game Switch Box with Coaxial Output or a 300 to 75 OHM matching transformer or a coaxial (f-type) to female rca adapter. You can also just splice a coax cable to the Atari. There are also a converter box that will convert a coaxial input to RCA output ( Yellow,red,white) cabels

Dont have my manual. i can't get am reception and it was good before. am reception is fine. also have a new lg led tv and the only audio coming out of the tv is an optic one, my onkyo tx-8511 does not have...


Register and download the manual for free at retrevo.com

As far as the TV audio goes... unless it is the primary source of the audio (tuned through its own antenna and available no where else) why don't you just run the actual primary source's (cable/sat, whatever) best digital audio straight to the Onkyo and skip the middleman that adds nothing to it but expensive unnecessary cable hops.

I'd also run each video sources absolute best video straight to the TV for the same reason.

I just purchased a Coby TV Model number TFTV 3255. I am very happy with the set. However it has only ONE audio output. The manual, on page 7, "coaxial output" ,an optical audio cable is required....


If it is a single output and looks like an RCA type, then I would say that the cable you would need is a digital coaxial cable. The optical input/output will have a different shape and is not as big of an opening as a digital coaxial input/output.

**ABOVE IS THE URL ADDRESS WHERE I FOUND THIS INFORMATION COPY AND PASTE TO YOUR URL BAR AND DISCOVER THE WORLD WIDE WEB

COAXIAL DIGITAL JACKS;

This type of jack is used for the digital audio inputs and/or outputs on A/V components such as receivers, CD players, DVD players, and more. Coaxial digital jacks are also sometimes found on higher-end PC soundcards for digital audio input and output.
Coaxial digital inputs and outputs use standard RCA-type jacks (so coaxial digital cables are terminated with standard RCA connectors). But the cable itself is specially designed to handle the much wider frequency bandwidth of digital signals

All coaxial inputs or outputs on any unit is the screw-post type. The female part is a standard coaxial cable that slips onto the posts on the unit. Are you trying to convert Coaxial to RCA?

Video Connections


These are all the connectors on the back. The "1 x component video output" indicates that you can use the "3 color video cord" you have, better known as Component Video Cable.

Connector Type: 1 x HDMI ( 19 pin HDMI Type A ) - rear ¦ 1 x component video output ( RCA phono x 3 ) - rear ¦ 1 x S-Video output ( 4 pin mini-DIN ) - rear ¦ 1 x composite video output ( RCA phono ) - rear ¦ 1 x audio line-out ( RCA phono x 2 ) - rear ¦ 1 x 5.1 channel audio line-out ( RCA phono x 6 ) - rear ¦ 1 x digital audio output (coaxial) ( RCA phono ) - rear ¦ 1 x digital audio output (optical) ( TOSLINK ) - rear ¦ 1 x network ( RJ-45 ) - rear ¦ 2 x USB - front
