Just moved into a ~100 yr old house in Christchurch, and having trouble connecting my TV to the antenna (for vanilla TV - not yet Freeview).
I have a Samsung 37 inch flatscreen, about 4 years old.
The cable coming out of the wall is like this:
The connector at the back of the TV is like any regular aerial socket.
I went to 'tricky dickie', had to make multiple trips for the correct cable with a bunch of different adaptors.
The cable I now have connects from the wall to the TV, but still no signal - not even snowy reception, the TV is blank black screen even when cycling through TV/AV/DVI functions.
We have a 'bunny ears' aerial which we are using, but it is a pain having to adjust it for different channels.
Even though the sockets plug in, is it possible that the cable I purchased is not the correct type?
There is a twin-cabled connection in the same corner for the Sky satellite.
I am not totally deficient when it comes to electronics - I have set up internet this week, got AV & sound cables for the laptop to the TV, and I build my own PCs.
Having moved into the place in just a weeks notice, I am not exactly swimming in funds to pay someone to have a look.
