I have an old box analog TV that only has ext. Ant. Input. Wondering what connectors there are to go from antenna input (looks and fits like a standard .35mm)

I know it's possible, I just went into a restaurant with the exact same TV playing to a VHS
Any help is appreciated. Thank you!
 
TV antenna inputs use an F jack (not 3.5mm). You will see a threaded cylinder with a hole in the center.
VHS works because VCRs all had channel 3/4 RF outputs specifically for older TVs without video inputs.
If you want to connect another source to the antenna input you would need an video to RF modulator

It should be fine for vintage gaming consoles but not so good for modern ones.

I got a modulator and a f coaxial cord but it's still not working. The input on the TV is not a threaded coaxial I fits a 3.5mm. So what is that plug?

This is what I just tried but I'm assuming it doesn't work cause I used a 3.5m

TV <- 3.5mm to f jack <- f jack to f jack to plug into modulator, modulator to device.

If the 3.5mm jack is wrong, what fits there that's correct? I think that's my missing puzzle piece.
