    I bought an external TV tuner for my monitor from DX, and instead of a coaxial input, it has something that looks like this...

    I'm not sure what it is, but I wanted coaxial, thats what I was supposed to have on it. What can I buy to let me use coaxial?

    Also, the power adaptor I got was for the UK or something... strange prong. Is it possible I got a PAL device? Its working perfect for me though, so I don't really mind (using a separate power adaptor I had from before)

    this looks like old aerial TV connectors, its the ones we use in France anyway.
    pretty unrealiable especially for analog signals [​IMG]

    We still use 'em here, for DVB-T. Total crap.

    It's probably PAL.

    That is the end of the coaxial cable...u just have to strip the cable correctly and put it through it,and its done.
