:welcome: kiwi,
IF ... you will give us details about your Panasonic Model / name of your set, it would really help our group to help you. Photos would especially help. By the way, I have never heard of a TV set without a speaker. Are you talking about a CRT computer monitor?

No antenna input !

no the screws dont look like that. i have a tv with no speakers maybe thatll help
It sounds to me like what you have is a studio / professional video monitor, and it will only accept composite video input. if it has the RCA type connector in the back (Sometimes colored Yellow), it will display the video only from the converter box. Some models support audio too, but most don't.

To get the audio, you need an audio amplifier, or a cheap solution is to get a inexpensive pair of amplified computer speakers that have their own power supply (Not the USB type), adapt or replace the the 1/8 inch stereo plug with RCA type connectors. hook the converted speakers to the audio outputs (White and Red). if you have a stereo amplifier available, you can hook the converter boxes audio outputs to a conventional stereo amplifier/ FM Receiver unit with a 6 to 8 dollar cable from Radio Shack or Wal-mart.

The Shack doesn't carry the adapter for this, but Monoprice does. Looks like this:


Don't know whether it's at Wally World.

These are a lot more common at the B&M stores.
