You could consider getting a dvbt2 receiver see my thread here, contact me if interested to purchase.

With dvbt2 receiver, it could record the channels, while you could use the TV to view other programs or ps3 etc.

Cheapest way to watch T2 is using set-top box $50-150, otherwise only 2 32" models to check for promotions as of now; Sony W674 and Panasonic 32E6S. Ard $600

There's a few cheap DVB-T2 TVs coming soon from reputable manufacturer's 2014 TV lineup.

Samsung UA32H4100 HDReady LED TV:

Thanks all for the quick replies, looks like it is still more worthwhile to get a cheap tv and add on a dvbt2 receiver

No soldering is required on the "T" end. I suppose you know what to do at the end that is to be connected to the tv.

Just a word of caution, the unbraiding of the strands of screening wire can be tedious. And have some old newspaper to collect the broken stray strands while doing the job.
Somehow my cable is different from your. When i cut open i only see one strain of copper wire (not those thin hair strain ones. More like those used at your "T" end. I guess i will look for another cable with the TV connector then try this again

Did you salvage the cable from your rabbit antenna?

Here is another pic of a typical coaxial cable (RG 59) (mine is the RG6 type):


This particular cable does not have a screening metal foil for the inner conductor. Soldering of the screen wire is optional.
