My old GoldStar CRT TV only has an RF socket for antenna connection. I would like to know where to connect RCA AV (mono audio) sockets into the circuit board in order to use the set as a monitor for external AV sources. I presume that the outer contact of each AV socket would be soldered to the "ground" of the circuit board, leaving one other Audio connection and one other Video connection to be made. Any ideas? Thanks.

The RF signals this TV uses to receive video are very different than the composit video signals used by (RCA AV) such as surveillance cameras. I dont know of a way to just solder an RCA plug on the circuit board and get picture and audio.

One easy way to do what you want is to get a composit to RF video converter.
something like that:

Thanks for the suggestion. I was hoping to avoid converting AV to RF and then from RF back to AV as this causes loss of clarity. It would have been good to feed AV signal directly into the AV part of the TV set. Thanks again.
