Right.
There is no TV tuner in the Mercury II
That connection assumes you use a coax to connect the Merc to your TV, which is then tuned to Channel 3/4
But with the Merc in standby, you can then tune your TV set to all the local stations using your outdoor antenna.

Personally, I plug my FTA receiver into the TV via the RCA composite jacks, so that stuff is worthless.

The only time I've ever used the RF modulator output on a receiver, is to run a bedroom TV in a distant room.
Then, I had to solve the problem with the remote. - :rolleyes: - (which I did)

Yes, avoid using the antenna in and outs on the receiver. All it can do is act like a splitter and degrade the signal going to your tv...
