Re: Coaxial cable connection to hdmi


This is the back of YOUR TV.



The inputs shown are 2 of 3 USB, 1 RF In (Antenna/Cable), 1 Composite In, 1 Ethernet, 1 Optical, 1 RS232C (Mini Jack) The RF In is where you will plug in the cable from your Antenna.

However, I have a question. Since you have DirecTV, why do you want to bother with an antenna? Are you trying to "Cut the Cord"?

Do you know WHAT you have connected to the back of the TV? For example, do you have ethernet connected or do you have a wireless connection to the internet?

Just curious why you want to add antenna if you have DirecTV as you won't add anything.

Re: Coaxial cable connection to hdmi


That Antenna Connector is a "Belling Lee" connector, also known as type 9,52
(largely only in the context of its specification, IEC 61169, Part 2: Radio-frequency coaxial connector of type 9,52)

In Europe and Australia it is known colloquially as a PAL antenna connector, IEC antenna connector, or simply as a TV aerial plug.

What is it called in North America?

Also, do many (any) TV receivers (or other devices requiring an external antenna) sold in North America come with an "F "type antenna connector?

Practically all N. American TV's have the F connector male on them. Frankly, I've never seen a TV without one except the old time tube sets with the screw terminal connections.

Thank you.

From the Wikipedia entry I thought that this may be the case.

For some strange reason, this has not spread to Australia and TVs are still sold here with Belling-Lee antenna connectors.
This is a nuisance, as the plug can tend to fall out if the lead is stressed.
