For the wiring in our new house the sparky has installed a UHF TV aerial but at the TV wall outlets he has simply left a piece of RG6 with the screw-on type connection poking out of a hole in the faceplate rather than terminating to something where we can then just plug-in a normal TV aerial lead. What is the best way to convert this type of connection to one that will go in the back of our TVs? Cheers!

You can buy plug in adaptors for some faceplates such as PDL that convert F (the screw in connector) to the TV type which is from memory Belling Lee. Mastertrade and Corys sell these or you can just buy an adaptor from TradeMe

Can also get them at Bunnings and Mitre 10 Mega.
Ask the sparky to install f29 faceplates so the cable doesn't hang out the wall. They're standard items now. Maybe he just didn't have any proper inserts?

I'd be getting him back to finish the job!

There should be faceplates on the wall, either F (preferrable) or Belling Lee. As for adapters you can literally pick these up anywhere that sells TV accessories.
