Question about Zenith XBS344 System
My cable company (Cox) has uses Scientific Atlanta boxes that have both a coax cable connection and RCA cable connections. Can you use the VCR IN LINE 1 connections on the Zenith XBS344 system to run the digital lines into from the cable box? The picture to my Sharp Aquos TV isn't as sharp when I run the cable directly into the back of it from the cable box, but I'd hate to lose the use of the home theatre system by by-passing it. Any suggestions? Thanks.
No digital sound comes from Digital Coax or Optical and in order to utilize a digital signal u need HDMI or Component although component wont be truly digital. Try running everything to the TV then the sound out of the TV into the sound system. If its a high def source like high def cable box then use the optical conection on the back of the aquos and plug than into your surround system. if ur system doesnt support Optical or digital coax then you need an updated surround system. If i misunderstood your question im sorry. If u live in CT though stop by Circuit city in North haven. either myself, Dave, or my associate Justin should be able to help you out. and dont worry we're not on commission or anything.

Tips for a great answer:
See page 12 and manually assign the coaxial to something other than the default CD ( SAT seems to be the closest meaning to Cable). Or just select CD and the Cable Box should come in digitally.
