Hook up Cox Dig CBL Box to receiver and TV for home theater

I have a surround sound home theater set up a year ago with a new LG 37 (LC7D) and a Yamaha HTR 6060 receiver and a DVD player (also a Yamaha) DV-C6860.
I picked up a new COX Digital cable Box and an trying to figure out how to hook it up (I did not get a Digital Video Recorder so dont need info on that).

I also have a Yamaha remote RAV326 to control it all which isnt the greatest but it works, COX sent a remote that may be better.

Cox also sent a 5 wire cable (3 video and 2 audio in the normal colors or R_B_G video and R_W audio). They also sent two short coax cables.

what is the best way to hook this up to get best sound avoiding TV speakers? The lousy manual only shows how to hook it up using either a direct hookup to the TV or a hookup thru the DVRecorder which I didnt acquire).

Thanks for your help. I wanted to watch some bowl games using HD but so far I struck out making it work.

    Yes, the inputs are on the back of the COX Digital Receiver.

    Let me clarify. Both the Cox cable Box and the Yamaha Receiver have inputs on the back.

The easiest way to proceed is by using RCA cables (the red, white, yellow) to connect the cable box.

    Use the Video input panel on the HTR6060, if you watch at the backpanel it should be on the upper right hand corner.

    There chose if to use RCA, component or svideo, and connect input from cable box and output to TV.

    Refer to page 15 on manual:

I have a LG LHB335 Blu-Ray home theater system, & a LG TV I can get Full surround sound when the blu-ray is play a DVD but not when just watching Reg TV. I use a HDMI, should I hook up sonething else ?...


LG documentation states:

When you use SIMPLINK function, you have to

connect to the OPTICAL IN 1 jack to enjoy TV
sound to your speaker system.

Basically you need to have the Audio go from TV to receiver and setup receiver to that Input to output surround sound to all speakers.

If you have a cable box or satellite receiver, hook that output into the receivers input and that should work.

My setup is DirectTv HDMI output goes into the LG Home Theater HDMI Input 1, and LG goes HDMI output into the TV HDMI input 1.
so to watch DirectTV, I switch LG Home theater to HDMI Input 1. and TV is on HDMI input 1 (to view LG HDMI output from DriectTV, Blu-Ray, Vudu, etc.)

OK. For all you regular Joe's like me here's the fix--plain and simple! I have Dish Networks HD receiver, an LG Home Theater System (LHB953) and an LG HD Television - although I suspect this applies for most LG TV-to-LG Audio Systems used in combination with a HD TV). My problem lied within the LG to LG setting known as SIMPLINK which tries to "auto-configure" everything between LG to LG devices.

Do this to make your HD TV (using Dish/DirecTV) play it's HD video display from the satellite provider but play the audio over the LG surround sound speakers:

1. Plug a HDMI cable from your satelite receiver's set-top-box to your HD TV. This will carry your HD "video" ONLY. Click "Input" on the TV remote until the HD video signal shows your desired TV channel from your satellite provider.

2. Plug an HD Optical cable (the one with the red laser) from your LG HTS (Home Theater System) to your satellite box. This will carry your HD "audio" ONLY.

3. This is the magic everyone seems to be overlooking. On the LG TV remote, go into the menu options and disable SIMPLINK by setting SIMPLINK=OFF. This feature allows the video and audio signals to be split over 2 different ports: HD video goes over the HDMI cable and the audio to go over the HD Optical cable.

Hope this helps!

I have an almost exact set-up and you will only get sound out of your rear speakers when the TV channel is broadcasting in 5.1 Ch Stereo. Otherwise the sound is limited to your front, center, and woofer speakers.

Lg home theater to lg plasma tv


This is a typical problem with TV broadcast UNLESS you use a matrix DSP surround sound mode, most DVD audio is either Dolby digital 5.1 surround or DTS multi-channel surround sound, unless you are viewing a HDTV broadcast with 5.1 Digital sound connected from the TV to the receiver then you are probably receiving a 2 channel Stereo sound format, I would suggest that you try to set your TV input mode to a audio Dolby Pro- Logic which will yield 5.1 and should engage all speakers.

Hooking up the RT 2600


connect all the devices into the receiver inputs then there should be 1 set of outputs to the tv. This is to play everything using surround sound as all the video and audio is going through your recevier... if you want to do HD and have surround sound you will need a new receiver as this one has no hdmi inputs or outputs.
