Probably something you'll want to ask at a dealership. I don't think anybody does aftermarket TV anything.
Ok. But I just wanted to know about antenna connection to the car setup. There are four antenna sockets but car doesn't have a tv antenna.

The point being we're all here to do aftermarket stuff and I don't think I've ever seen antenna related anything in aftermarket 12V electronics industry and I definitely have never seen anybody on this board post anything about TV anything. I'm saying I don't think anybody here can help you with this nor would 99% of car audio shops. It's likely even half the dealerships wouldn't have any idea what to do with that without calling around.

Looks like something misunderstanding.
My issue is; I have a car audio setup which contains DVD player, FM radio, TV, GPS etc. This a an old setup indeed. DVD, radio etc working fine. When switch to tv it scans for only one tv channel. When I examined the setup removing from the car, found that there were no antenna connection wires on the harness. Setup contains four sockets for tv antenna. (Pl. see the photo uploaded with my first post) So I want to connect antenna or aerial to those sockets to tuning the tv. Am I wrong!??

If it's a factory stereo, the parts guy at the dealership may be able to help. Have you tried typing in the model and year of your vehicle into your search engine followed by "How to connect the TV antenna"?
Just some suggestions. Good luck.

An antenna is nothing more than a loop of wire, try making some and plugging them in and rescan. A car audio enthusiast website is not going to have proprietary information on some old electronics device with no real description of the equipment. what car, what brand how about pics of the whole unit front, sides. maybe there is a sticker on there somewhere with a part number. your expectations on an answer are skewed.

Again, how would any of us know? I have yet to see or hear of anybody putting a TV antenna in a vehicle, not on this board and not in person at any car audio shop or show. The ONLY people who are going to stand a chance of knowing is the dealer or manufacturer of that car and again seeing that TV in a car has never even remotely been popular you'll be hard pressed to find anybody anywhere who has any hands on experience with this sort of thing.

Or in short, your guess is going to be as good as any of ours.

I think my issue wasn't understand some guys here. I didn't mean Install a TV antenna in the
car. But if some car stereo has a built in tv tuner then there should be a way to receive tv signals to tuner. I've attached a photo of the setup with my first post. It clearly indicates the antenna sockets, 04 nos. 3.5mm sockets. It might be an aerial but I cannot understand what kind of aerial.

https://www.qualitymobilevideo.com/ant1.html Something like that?

It appears that 3.5mm has fallen out of style with pretty much every antenna type, so the odds of that being the one are quite high.

Thanks. This may help to solve my issue.
I probably have one ... but being in another country shipping would be high.
