Hi, I have heard of a transmiter and receiver set from
if they still exist.
The radio shack sells modulators that your t v might pick up.
Or find a friend to buy a splitter and some cable wire and connect it to your t v.

Hi, all. I'm posting this one to both e-mail addresses for the list, so if you get it twice, I'm really sorry. I just want to try and reach all of you knowledgeable folks in hopes that someone will have an answer. I recently picked up a little $10 TV for my bedroom; nothing fancy, but I wanted to give myself the option of laying in bed to watch some of my favorite shows on nights when I am tired. I only have what is called lifeline cable: in other words, I pay $10 per month for the priveledge of getting decent reception of our local channels. There doesn't appear to be a cable jack in my bedroom, and since I'm in an apartment, Time Warner refuses to come out and install another jack. I suppose that that's understandable since I'm not exactly a high-paying customer. Anyway, the little $10 TV came with a set of rabbit ears, and it brings in most of my lokal vhf stations with no trouble. However, I can't pick up any UHF channels at all. Ideally, I'd love to find some sort of virtual cable jack; something that perhaps could plug a miniature transmitter of some sort into the cable jack in my living room and then be wireless until it reaches the back of the TV in the bedroom, where there would be some sort of little receiver that plugs into the antenna jack. Is there such a device out there? If not, does anyone know of a good quality uhf/vhf antenna? This little TV only has one place to plug anything into, and it's a cable jack interface. I found an antenna on amazon.com that sounded promising, the turk tv5, but I won't be able to afford it for a couple of weeks. It's a low profile antenna, which would be ideal because there's slightly less chance that the cats would want to play with it. It has a lot of favorable reviews, and if it works really well, I'd be highly tempted to buy 2 of them and ditch Time Warner Cable altogether. I live in a basement level apartment, though, and presumeably, an outdoor antenna isn't an option. I love the TV, but at the moment, it isn't able to fully perform the purpose for which I purchased it. Any assistance you may have in this matter would be greatly appreciated. Thank you all very much for your time, and I hope you're having a great day! Missy
