Can an old B/W TV which only has the 2-screw antenna input still be used? If a digital converter box and coax to "antenna" adapter was used would it still work? It seems like a shame to throw out a potentially functioning, and cool-looking "antique". Thanks!

TV on channel 3, digi box with a coax/300 ohm flat wires to TV screws. You will need a short piece of coax [with connectors] between 300 ohm/coax and digi box. Use digi box remote for channel scan and channel change.
