Hi and welcome. The TV is an analogue tuner so won't work as there are no analogue signals any more.
You could add a digital tuner and feed it into the AV inputs if you really wanted it but you'd also need a new antenna.

Hello Robert and welcome to the Forum. Your car has an analogue tuner, so will not work as the signal is now digital. You will need to install a digital tuner. There are several threads on here that will point you in the correct direction.

How about searching 'Digital Tuner' from the 'Search' box in the top right corner :)

^ If you really want TV, a decent car hi fi shop should be able to fit a digital tuner and antenna.
The only problem is it can only be viewed when parked, they switch off on the move automatically.

Hello to you.I would only have wanted it when parked by the shore or in the country park.More as a gimmick i suppose rather than an essential item.Thanks for the advice

Yup. I had the same problem. There IS a way to convert the TV-input for use with reversing camera I believe but that’s as far as it goes.
