Need help connecting my Atari to my 1989 tv

Recommended Posts

So I bought an atari 2600 online and got it in the mail today. Hopefully the system itself works. But right now I am having trouble connecting it. My tv has 3 vhf screws(not really screws idk what to call them), one says ANT input, another converter output, and the last AUX Input. It also has 2 UHF screws below that.

I have a TV/game/computer switch but it does not have prongs like most, it is only a copper wire sticking out of it. I also have the power cable. So what do I do exactly? =p

That is awesome to have. Makes your connection easy and simplified so you can just get to the gaming! ;)

This is provided you are using the TV only for gaming and not watching shows. It replaces the old switch box. It gives you a direct line into the TV for the game without having to switch from cable or antennae to game.

It doesn't sound like it has a coax input. He might need an RF splitter like I have to use on my 78 Trinitron and one of the suggested adapters. Or just a new switch box. A picture of the back of the TV would help.
