Hi, you may have answered this already, but i can't find a thread on it.
I have a very old (ancient) RCA tv that only has a coaxial (?) connector on the back. I bought a modulator so i could hook up my dtv converter box, dvd player, and ps2 to this tv, but when i tried to hook it to my tv, i saw the modulator only offers either a 3 plug rca jack output, or a s-video output. Can i use this to hook a s-video cable to my modulator, and plug it into the back of my tv?
At the moment i am running the modulator through an old vcr, but i would really like to eliminate the vcr, since it is never used, and is only sucking up electric. Thank you. -VIDEO/Detail

No, this RCA connector will not plug into your coax input on the TV.

Here is an RCA to F-Type(coax) adapter that might work for you.


You would still need to consider the audio output from your modulator. The coax input on your TV handles Audio and Video. RCA and S-Video require seperate connections for Audio and Video. If you using a different device for audio (receiver, surround, etc) this should work.

If not, you can get a modulator that has a coax output
