TV connection

Hi, I'm not sure if this is the right place to ask, but I've just got a new smart tv and the freesat connection into the tv is very loose, I think I need a new nut type thing to keep it screwed in.  Could anyone tell me the name of the connector I need?  Thanks.

Re: TV connection

An 'F' connector maybe

411Ip6UMN6L

Available from Amazon

They don't usually wear loose, they just need tightening up.

It wouldn't be the first time I have used a small spanner to help things along.

Thanks Strat, I think that's what I need, on my connector the nut is just turning, I think it's too big but I'll have another look.

Re: TV connection

When screwing in the connector try to hold the cable with you other hand to take the weight off the nut as you screw it in. I have just done the same to my new TV that I got the other day so I'm mentioning this having been there and just done that.

Re: TV connection

Thanks Mook, I'll give it another go before I buy another one, I think that the copper needs to be cut back a bit more as well.
