NEW tv's do not have tv output on them.. lots of HDMI and such, but NO coax tv output I'm missing something here. Do you mean coax TV input? Because I've never seen a coax TV output on any TV before.

Re: new challenge..

Looks like a wash.. the adaptor/convertor would probably work but almost as expensive as the tv was.. guess best to bite the bullet and use a digital antenna .. I have one and it pulls all of the locals in clear. THANKS FOR TRYING THO.. and have a HAPPY NEW YEAR

Re: Enviromentalist Revenge Trap

I'll have to watch the garage sales for a flash unit.. just wanted to build something that would fit over a large plastic pale, like 5 gallon size.. put raw meat or fish in the bottom, set the insulated screens on top and watch them try to get to the meat.. see how many a day I can obliterate..
