    Hi, sorry if this sounds a remarkably stupid question, but I am having a digital aerial fitted next week in readiness for the arrival of my PV500. How would the connection fit to the PV500? Is there an aerial socket on it and is that what is used for the digital aerial connection to view Freeview channels?

    Coax tv connection

    Plug

    Socket
    See diagram below for exploded view of a plug connector.
    1: Unscrew the two parts of the plug and slide the cover (the back part) onto the cable.
    2: Twist together the screening and wrap it around the outer insulation. Place the brass 'claws' over the centre conductor, covering the screen.
    3: Strip away half the inner insulation to expose the inner conductor. Check that the inner conductor is not touching the screening.
    4: Push the centre conductor into the hole in the front half of the plug as far a possible. The centre conductor should show trough the hole from outside, and the brass claws should trap the screen, with the outer insulation underneath. Screw the two halves of the plug together, this will squeeze the brass claws tight on the cable insulation to grip the cable.
    5: Cut off the excess wire showing through the centre stem of the plug. To give a really good contact the centre wire should be soldered.

    Chill :cool:

    Only shedding a bit of light entertainment.

    You have to admit though asking where the aerial connects to a tv is a strange post for someone that has the intelligence to buy great plasma :smashin:

    I think you misunderstood me. Of course I know where and how an aerial connects, but the link I put in my original post shows the back of the PV500 and I couldn't see the aerial in socket anywhere. Just wanted to check it was there before shelling out £180 to get a digital aerial set up!

    I was chilled! :cool:

    Guys lets Chill....otherwise rather than The Enquirer to answer your question we'll get The Punisher to do it...and he'll probably just tell you where to stick it (aerial of course) ! :D

    I hate to spoil your guys fun but.. the Aerial is fitted to a socket that is facing downwards, hence you can't see the aerial socket in any pictures. It is on the right hand side.

    :D

    Jedi - a digital aerial. However we live in an area where technically there is no Freeview but 'booster' power boxes are used and a very good signal can be dragged in so we need one of those. The price also includes to four different points within the house and all wiring obviously plus dismantelling of existing aerial and cabling.

    Thought £180 seemed reasonable enough?

    sorry mate i just thought it were gonna be 1 A/E to one point, as you described the low sig area, larger aerial req of bat, then a booster add £80-100 and to four rooms maybe another £ 70-120 quid total approx £280-£300 before any discount so yes £180 is a very very very fair price mate

    My fault for leaping without getting all the details

    Your price guesses are spot on. It would normally cost me about £250 but I managed to knock him down to £180! He's agreed to keep the price open to me for a month while I wait for the TV to be delivered - I'll then call him in and see what he can do. He's promised to charge me nothing if he can't get a picture I'm happy with - although I would imagine that's standard procedure.
