I hope I've posted this in the right area. Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.

I've pulled a Yamaha RX-460 out of retirement. Does anyone know what type of antenna connector this is? PAL, RCA? I'm looking for an adapter to connect a screw on F connector from the cable that goes to my FM antenna in the attic.

Google "IEC PAL DVB-T Male plug to F Female adapter" and I think that will get ya there..
I dont know if there were slight variations in exact dimensions from old versions of that connector and modern ones, but I see em on ebay for 99 cents from china if your not in any hurry, so ya won't be out much if it's not an exact match.

That looks like the right adapter but beware of price gouging. Some receivers include the right adapter. I found a cheap push on coax adapter from a local surplus store worked and cost less than $5, much less that the Amazon link that came up in the search. Chinese sourced adapters on eBay are a fraction of the price of North American sources. I found an identical product that was $1 on eBay and $15 on Amazon, both shipped from China.

It used to be your could expect a Chinese part from eBay in 2-3 weeks. Now it's more like double that.

Thanks everyone, I purchased from Amazon. 2 for $9 and free shipping on my wife’s prime account. I did find some for 99 cents, but $20 shipping. Let’s see what happens. :)

That sounds good. I wasn't long ago that things like that were $1-$2 on eBay with free shipping. It looks like eBay has changed.

The one I came across on ebay was shipping to the US for free and was only 99 cents. Still says that now.
Must be the canadian ebay ur lookin at? I get stuff from china many times through out any given year, and the only time it really slows down is ~ chinese new year +/- a couple weeks.

So the adapter arrived today, looks like I ordered the wrong gender. The center pins both measure 2.2mm, but I think the hollow pin on the receiver causes the confusion.

The PAL-female to F-female are 1 cent cheaper. Should have them next week.
