I have the Pinnacle HDTV mini stick tuner, and need to replace the cable that allows the connection of a normal TV antenna to the mini stick.

The connection on the mini stick is circular, about 1/8" in diameter. It looks like it would take the mini plug from earphones, but it has a pin in the middle of it.

Pinnacle sold their tv tuner business to Hauppage. Hauppage only sells the complete sets. They don't sell parts. I checked with Radio Shack, but the guy there had never seen anything like it.

Do any of you know what that connection is called and where I might buy an adapter that will let me hook up an antenna? If you have one you'd like to sell, I'd be thrilled to buy it. I'm at my wits' end and I really don't want to buy another TV tuner.

Thanks,
Joanne

I believe that this connector is referred to as a mini coax connector.

Thanks! I'll check under that name.
