      Yup, those are called RCA-to-coax adapters, you must've joined this thread late.  :)
      Say, Alfred, I don't think we have seen you here before.  Please introduce yourself.  (Yahoo profile says you're in Texas ... all are welcome here but as you may have read we're basically a mid-Atlantic group.)

      Radio Shack has a cable adapter to adapt an RCA jack to the cable
      connector on the back of the TV. On the new cable ready TV set
      you don't need a 75 to 300 ohm converter/switch box.

      what do you mean by old style? Old style TVs didnt
      have cable inputs. You connected cable to the antenna
      jacks by way of an impedance matcher/adapter.
      Depending on what classic yer talking about, you dont
      need modulation, just a switch (those switches may
      also convert 75 to 300 ohms). Frinstance, the C64
      output channel 3 through the rca jack, carrierless
      composite video through the round din connector.
