I need a cable to connect my freeview receiver to the aerial socket. 

This is the output....(F Socket???)



And, this is the receiver input socket. . . 




I'm not sure the official names of these connectors but I need an adapter cable to go from one type to the other. 

Any clues? Thanks.

You just need to get an appropriate length of RG6 cable made up with F-Connectors crimped on each end, screw one end on to the "out" port of the splitter, then chuck one of these on the other end of the cable.

FYI, Jaycar sell pre-made RG6 cables with F-Connectors already crimped on the end.

You could also drop by a local aerial installation place, and they could make a cable up for you.
Both should have the screw-on Belling-Lee connectors as well.

That Belling-Lee connector is a female end, they need the male version. :)

Look again. It is f male to Belling Lee male which is what the Op needs to plug into the socket shown in the picture.
If female is needed then a male to female adaptor is available.
Bunnings and Mitre 10 should also have them as I've bought them there in the past.

The product image is misleading, because the image clearly shows a female Belling-Lee end (it has the splits on the side of the connector). Granted, the product description does say "plug", which, I guess means that it's the male version.

RG6 is the slightly better cable type anyway.

A very ambiguous product listing in any case. ;)
