    I am not sure if this is the place to ask this, but I have a small portable digital TV (Eviant T4 to be exact) and it has a small connector for the antenna It looks just liike the antenna connector for my Sirius radio in my car so I was surprised to find that it is actually way smaller than that connector. It is about the size of the connectors found on the Wifi cards of some newer laptops. Does anyone know what type of connecor this is? Is it an SMB type? I also cannot tell if it is male or female. You can put a connector inside but it has a center tiny pin that could make it a male??? I really would like to find a reference somewhere of all connector types.

    Thank you.

    Hope this link works. It is the connector left of the headphone jack.

    Thank you.

    can see his and your one now ( tho Im now on the home XP computer and not at work on the Win7 puter)
    earlier when I responded there was little black square with a white X in it
    ( Image placer)

    OK ..... looks a little big for a SMB.... is the outer surface threaded ?
    SMA is usually the norm for WiFi stuff

    SMA is threaded, SMB is smaller than SMA and not threaded
    ( threaded as in plug screws onto the soket for holding together

    SMB are just a push fit and "click" into place

    LOL that's interesting

    this morning, back at work, and only your image is showing, Steve

    Zunebuggy's post still shows just little black square with a white X in it

    something weird with Win7 I guess

    I would guess that it has something to do with a company firewall protecting you/them from porn.

    Somebody probably found porn at that site once and now they block everything from that site. I used to work at a place like that. They blocked lots of technical sited that I needed to do my job... until I employed a "technical solution".

    It's a push on connector. I ordered a SMB (found one for less than $5) that has a M on one end and a F on the other so no matter what, if it fits, I should be able to make a cable for it. I figure it's worth a try. It is about half the size of the antenna connector on my Sirius radio antenna (which is also push on). The TV is actually very small. When I got it, it said it could get OTA connect to cable or other video devices, but it did not come with any cables to do so and no documentation. Even a web search for the TV model # was no help.

    Like I said, I think it is the same size connector that is inside my laptop that connects the small wifi card to the laptop (internall) but I do not want to crack open my laptop again and that wont tell me what type of connector that is. It will just confirm they are the same size. Are they SMB?

    I actually took an RCA video signal and touched it to the center pin and did a quick channel scan and it displayed the video fairly clear on a channel it labeled Input. (paperclip and aligator clip). I also have an old video game that displays on Chan 3 and 4 and I could tune to that as well although it was a little fuzzy. It will tune the old analog OTA channels as well as new digital OTA (this is in the owners manual). It will auto detect straight video signal as well (as INPUT). Getting the RCA and old video game to show up was my proof of concept. If the SMB connector is the same size, I can make an RCA to SMB (or whatever) and finally be able to connect various video sources to this TV. I have a couple uses for it in mind but for now I have to determine this connector type.

    Thank you.

    If not SMB, then it could be MMCX, also a small size push connect type.
