Have TV Questions? Ask a TV Technician
Thanks for your help. I appreciate it.
Well we just moved here to VA Beach from Italy, but our television is American. The television is connected by a black cable to the cable provider box (where it says "To TV") and from that box there is a cable going into the wall. There is only a black cable from the tv to the cable provider box (Verizon) The strange thing is, before we got our household goods we had an older "box" television and that worked fine. None of the cables have been touched, just put into a LCD television. we actually have two LCDs and they are both doing the same thing - showing blue screens and receiving no channels. I just got off the phone with VERIZON and they did a check on the box from their systems to see if it was possibly the box, but it is not. If we put the old TV back in right now it works fine!
Hi again Aric,
It is a coaxical female cable. It is actually an adapter we needed in order to screw on the cable...
Yes, there are red, white and yellow connections on the Verizon cable box(6) that are called one one side "Digital Audio Coax" and on the other side "Video" and on the back of the LCD tv as well of course.
Thank you, XXXXX XXXXX my husband figured it out. we just have one last question . do we not lose picture quality using the RCA cables?
One last question, Aric. Can I eventually put in a normal coax cable?
