The original TV antenna is far from useless; it may be used to receive the new digital signals with NO modifications. Even if you don't have a digital TV, there are low-cost digital tuners available to update an old TV.
I would check that the connectors were in good shape, however...
ps: the satellite antenna recieves its power from the satellite tuner, through the usual RG59 it connects to it with.
