TV Technician: Anthony_Infotech, Technician replied 4 months ago

So you are trying to connect the satellite box via an antenna?we do not normally do that,it would be connected via HDMI?can't you find the HDMI?

Satellite boxis downstairs, tv is upstairs. cable coming out of wall upstairs is plain old coaxcable. if tvwon't work that way why isthere a coax connection on it. I haveno hdmi cables anywhere.
TV Technician: Anthony_Infotech, Technician replied 4 months ago

No you can't do that I am afraid with a modern set,there is a coax connector on the set for OVER AIR channels via an antenna (nothing to do with the box) you would need an antenna either outdoor or indoor depending how far away from the over air transmitter you are.....
