You would need some sort of thing that will broadcast analog signal to the TV, from an input, there have been a few myths about putting it on channel 3 and connecting it to RCA video out, you could use a VCR and have the cable touch the antenna, and have the VCR tuned to the Inputs or something.
I don't think that would work man.
Aha, Yes it would.
Okay I'll admit, I think it DOES work to some point and degree. I recall doing something like that with my gamecube and a 13" color television, but it was so frickkin static y that it was no use.
You did something wrong, as long as you don't expect it to air a signal to the device, then that would make sense.
No I was hoping maybe actually making contact with the antenna would work, but not really.
You did something wrong, Or the Device receiving the signal was defective, was the center part touching the antenna?
yes the center part duh, the other part of the jack is just a ground basically.
Well, The Device was probably defective, Or was not tuned to the right channel, Can be hard to achieve in those analog knobs.

Easy way, of somewhat limited resolution, is a video to RF converter ("RF modulator.") These used to be pretty common, but have become less so as TVs have gotten video inputs. The average VCR will probably have one, and/or will work as one, and may be a cheaper solution than trying to find a stand-alone unit. In some VCRs, this may be a nice little module that can be extracted. You can also hack into the video circuitry of the TV. This has gotten more dangerous since TVs no longer have line-isolated power supplies (oh, starting about 30 years ago) and may be nearly impossible a more modern TV...
