    I'm not very technologically inclined, but I got a question that should be very basic for some of y'all.

    So I'm living in this cabin which is basically a room with a toliet, sink, and kitchenette. I got an old TV here with one of those screw plug-ins...not sure what it's called, but my brain thinks it's a RF connector. Not sure if that's right, though.

    Anyways, I have a DVD player with those standard red, yellow, and white plugs.

    Is there a way to connect the two? And where would I find the adaptor? Wal-mart mebbe?

    You have a few options...

    First, a cheap VCR may have the RCA (that's the Yellow, Red, White plugs) in and a coaxial out. Though oftentimes it may end up running two seperate systems.

    Second look for a RF converter. You may be able to find them at your local Wally World, however in the last few years they have been harder to find. Where you may have luck is in a 4 to 1 type of system. An example is here on Amazon.com
