USB TV Stick connection

  geedad 12:32 05 Dec 2009

I have just aquired a Digital Freeview USB Stick. It came with a miniature aerial socket and plug. After scanning, I am unable to receive any channels, and I want to know if there is a connection cable from the USB Stick to a NORMAL CO-AX Cable to enable me to plug it into my home outside aerial?
I need the same size to connect to the USB Stick, and at the other end, a CO-AX - plug.
Is there such a cable?
Thanks in advance.

you should be able to get a converter though I would have thought that one should have been supplied as they know that the small Ariel only works when close to Transmitter

You should be able to connect your normal outdoor TV aerial to the USB TV Stick. You also need to be in a good Digital TV Reception area.

Or you could try a normal indoor aerial - however,the positioning of the small or indoor aerial is critical - a few inches movement in any direction can make all the difference.

What is the make and model of your stick.

I have one and found it useless unless connected to my main TV aerial in the loft.

Thanks, both!
Woolwell - It is a Blaze USB TV Stick V 3.5, capable of recording Freeview channels.
Thank you also,

I've been searching and found what seems to be the answer.It is an RF Coaxial to MCX Antenna Rooftop Adaptor DVB- T.

Thanks to all again!
