DTV converter trip-up

I was helping Gaby set up a converter box for her TV, and strangely, the antenna plug didn’t fit!  We ended up buying a newer antenna and that also didn’t fit.  Our converter box, by Philco, didn’t seem to fit any antennas!  Fortunately google had one good result: “Antenna Jack Won’t fit Converter Box” .  We ended up picking up this little two dollar adapter.  If anyone else has the same problem, sometimes Radio Shack is the one to help.

The good news is that the TV gets far better reception with the DTV system… Gaby’s TV went from one or two barely watchable channels to six really solid channels!
