    I'll leave out the details as to why I'm using this TV right now, but it is very old (like, from the 1970's). This old TV does not have a coaxial input.

I know there's such a thing that lets you convert that into a coaxial input, but I don't know how to search for that or even what to call it.

    What you are looking for is a 300 ohm to 75 ohm coaxial connector. Go to Radio Shack.

    Also - if you want to hook up a DVD player (that only has a yellow RCA plug for the video out), you want to pick up an "RF Converter" for about $25 that takes the RCA video in, and gives you a coaxial connection out.
