Re: Connect a new TV . which cables?
Many TV's like yours have a two coaxial port solution. Some call them antenna A and B other digital and terrestrial. If you have these connect your 3,4 out line off the SAT box to one of them. Go to the menu on the tv and go to setup, then go to autoprgram channels and it may give you an option to scan only for one type or the other if so choose the type of signal or port that you connected sat box to and run a scan if not run it as it is and check results.
If you are connecting sat box using RCA cables ensure that they are on the output port of the sat box. Then connect the other end to one of the input port on the tv remebering what input you are conected to. Using the remote, if so equipped, cycle thru the inputs by pressing input or souce button.
If you do not have these on your remote you will need to go to menu on the tv and access the inputs that way.
If you have a VCR connected and satellite ran through it via coax you will have to go to the input source the VCR is connected to. I hope I have been of assistance to you. Thanks for using Fix Ya. If you need more help let me know.

Look for something like this at your favorite electronics store...http://www.bestbuy.com/site/eForCity+-+3+Way+Audio+Video+AV+RCA+Switch+Switcher+Splitter+with+Cable/4655143.p?id=1218501028155&skuId=4655143&st=AV Switch&cp=8&lp=3 Copy all of that into your browser and you'll end up at best buy looking at a A/V Switch that can switch between 3 different devices so you don't have to change the cables...also, look for ones that are remote controlled that have more options...I just included this one as an example...hope this helps you!
your output cable is in the back of your t.v. there is a color designated on its hole then you have to buy a a cable in any electronic shop like components cable or hdmi cable try to read the back panel of your tv
What cables are you using for the XBOX and the digital box? What surround sound system are you using (what receiver)? Which model of Dynex 32" TV do you have? Looking at the DX-L32-10A, I can connect both devices to the TV and then the audio out to the surround sound system.
If HDMI, then that will carry the audio to the TV and then you would need an audio cable from the audio out on the TV to the surround sound speakers. Similarly, if you use component video and the audio cable combination, there are 2 component video jacks and 3 audio-in jacks on the rear of the TV. Then connect another cable from the audio out of the TV to the surround sound system. (This TV has one audio out and a headphone jack.)
If you previously had the audio going from the Rogers digital box directly to the surround sound system, you need to reroute things unless there are two or more sets of audio in jacks on the surround sound system. Some surround sound system can take several HDMI in cables and then route it to the TV on a HDMI out port.
Without more information, I can't be sure of the best option for your cables.
I hope this gets you started and please provide more information for additional suggestions.
I would hope that you would use a HDMI cable to connect your cable box to your LCD TV - why not display the highest resolution to your screen that you can. HDMI will transmit the 1080P high def signal to your screen. These cables can be found at Wallmart and Target or even Best Buy. Don't need the most expensive and or a 6' length or short will work just fine. Then use your S-Video cable to connect your VCR/DVD to your LCD TV - This is not a High Def signal - only 480i if that. The P means Progressive or 1080 lines from top to bottom. the I means Interlaced to which means 240 lines once for field one then 240 lines for field two. You may want to think of a blue ray player to which upconverts your older DVD's to 4x3 High Def resolution. Happy Thanksgiving and God Bless, Blessings, A/V Media Tech Guy
You will need an HDMI to DVI cable which are available in the shops, even ASDA has one but I don't know how good it is. Or you can buy an adapter that will plug into one of the ends of the HDMI cable and then plug into the DVI socket at the back of the TV. The DVI input is video only so you will need audio leads for sound. These will connect from the output of your source, say, blue ray or sky HD (Left and right audio sockets ) to the audio L/R at the back left of the TV (on the block next to the three component video connections and s-video connections)
