If the antenna is grounded before connection be sure to disconnect from the mains (not just switch off), not only television, but also everything attached to it: VCRs, DVD players and recorders, audio amplifiers, etc. If this is not done, that while touching the metal parts of the plug and the device when the cable is disconnected you can get a very painful shock. It is typically safe by itself, but may cause sharply pulling the arm, causing her to accidentally hurt a hard or sharp object, and if there is a soldering iron, to burn about it.
In the absence of a VCR or DVD recorder, connect the antenna plug directly into the Jack of the TV. Some devices have separate jacks for antenna ranges VHF and UHF. In this case, connect two separate antennas for these bands, or use a special separator bands.
In the presence of VCR or DVD recorder connect the antenna Jack in the antenna input socket of the corresponding apparatus. Output antenna Jack of this unit connect includes a delivery cable from the aerial socket of the TV (with separate sockets in any of them, which is designed for UHF antennas). If the TV has no remote control and the VCR or recorder it is, the first button of the TV set to the frequency of the output of the modulator device. Remember that the signal from the device input to its output in some models persist even without frequency conversion in the case that it is not connected to the network.
If the antenna cable is not equipped with a plug, buy it. It is desirable that it did not require soldering even if soldering you can do well. The fact that at the slightest overheat at the coaxial cable core will be shorted to the braid. First thread the cable through the connector cover, and then attach the braided cable to the ring contact of the plug, and the Central vein - to the male. Then put the cover on the connector.
If you got the antenna cable supplied with the VCR, make it. Buy cut slim 75-lot coaxial cable with a length of about five feet. Connect to it as described above on one side of the antenna plug, and the other antenna socket.
Don't forget to hook up a VCR or DVD recorder not only at high but also at low frequency special cable with a SCART, DIN to 6 RCA or in all cases when the TV allows it.
Advice 2: How to connect the antenna to the TV
Digital image transmission has many advantages over analog devices, but has its own characteristics. The fact that a coded image of a normal analog TV will not accept. Therefore the antenna to a normal TV to this method of broadcasting will have to connect via set-top box decoder.
You will need
- TV antenna, decoder
Connect the antenna to the decoder. Typically used to receive the UHF signal antenna should be inserted into the slot on the rear panel of the decoder. Depending on the model of the device socket will be marked "Antenna" or "Ant".
If the same antenna you plan to use for broadcasting normal (analog) TV, connect using a special cable or antenna extension cable connector on rear panel Ant. out." ("Ant. out") to the antenna input of a television receiver. In the absence of the decoder such possibility of connection, use the divider signal (antenna splitter).
The next step is the connection of the decoder to the TV. The connection can be made at a low frequency using a special interface or a high frequency.
In any interface, first switch the television receiver to the corresponding video mode that the signal did not come from antenna input and relevant video input. To switch use the button on the remote control of the TV or on the front panel of the device. Usually it is denoted by "Video", "AV", "AV/TV", etc.
If your TV has multiple inputs, repeatedly press the appropriate button or select the desired mode from the menu, following the instructions to the TV.
Connect the decoder to the TV at a low frequency trigger via cable with three connectors ("tulips"). Turn one end of the cable into the decoder, the color of plug should match color of socket. The second end of the cable turn on the TV.
Connect the decoder to the power supply. If no indication check in what position is the switch on the body of the decoder (on the rear panel near the power cord). With proper decoder on the front panel you will see the corresponding indication.
Now the antenna is connected through the decoder. Configure the connection, switch your TV to the appropriate video mode. Setup can be done from the control panel via the context menu or buttons on the control panel of a television receiver.
