Your best cable choice is going to be HDMI, but for heaven's sake don't be suckered into paying an enormous amount of money for an HDMI cable. Any good quality cable will work, you don't need a $100 MONSTER cable, because you won't see a difference in picture between the $10 cable and the $100 cable, regardless of what the sales person might tell you

I have dish network hd but hdmi does not work so i hooked it up direct whats the best one to put it on 1080pi or 480.480pi,720 or what


Hi my name is Mike Houston of DISH Network and I see youhave DISH Network HD the hdmi does not work. Depending on what the TV is set to;480, 480i, 720, 1080i will depend on what you have your receiver set to. Afteryou check your TV settings press the buttons of Menu-6-8 and it will take youto HDTV Setup. Make sure your TV settings match your DISH Network HD settings;if you have anymore questions please e-mail me at Michael.houston@dishnetwork.com.

The best picture would be with the composite connections which is the red, blue and green plugs. when using these plugs you will also have to connect seperate audio cables for the sound. Then select the proper input on the tv.

Hd hook up for rca 52"dlp


If you have Direct TV HD the best way is to use a HDMI to DVI cable. If you only have the component (red/green/blue)connectors on the Direct TV Box that would be the best way. You will not have audio using the DVI cable, so you will have to run Red/White cable to the Audio Input.

I belive the JVC hd-ila will only output digital audio when you are on a digital source. If you tune a digital channel on antenna or cable, it should work. If this doesn't work check all the settings, you may have a hardware failure. I personally would run the line directly from the hd dvr to the stereo and take out the middle man to keep your signal as true as possible.

Off Air?


The Scientific Atlanta box was a cable box and recieved CATV signals. The Direct TV box is satellite only. You might check if it has a built in ATSC tuner for off air digital signals. Direct TV in most locations offers the major networks in HD format.
