There are several ways...
The best video connection is HDMI out to the TV HDMI in.
The next best is the RGD, Red, Green, Blue component connections

Make sure you check the cable box out put to make sure it is outputting the highest resolution that you're TV can handle (720P, 1080i , or best 1080P)

There may be some other things to do, but without more details of your question, this would seem to be the most basic answer.

I want to connect my cable box to my newly bought toshiba plasma


Is your cable box HD? It would be best for your tv. You can hook up a couple of ways depending on your receiver and tv in/out capabilities. You will always get best picture if you go directly from your cable box out to tv in. You should have capabilty to go HDMI out and perhaps Component out on your cable box. If you can't get hd receiver from cable company. Anyway, if you use HDMI, hook to HDMI out on receiver to HDMI in on tv. HDMI provides audio and video. You can also go componenet(red, blue, green) out from recevier to in on tv. I personally feel component gives you better picture but , doesn't carry audio. For that you need to get audio using either digital optical or, composite cables. You may have to set your HD on receiver through cable boxes menu. The last option is using composite cables(last choice, poorest picture and sound) yellow(video) and red, white(audio)

How do I hook this up to a COMCAST Cable Box...or do I hook it to the audio of the TV? Are cables the best or should I just buy an HDMI cable?


Cable (and any source) audio should go digitally and directly to your AV receiver. HDMI would work, too, but the TV would be the best place to send the HD video if you only have the one HDMI output at the Comcast box.

OTOH, I compared both HDMI and the component video hookups to my HDTV and could not see the difference. So I run my BD on HDMI (because it is by FAR the best video the TV will ever get) and component video from the HD cable box to the TV (because all broadcast video is bit- and bandwidth-limited somewhere along the line).

TV audio almost never originates with the TV unless it has an antenna, so why would you want to feed its audio to the receiver?

What is the optimal cable type to connect the Samsung UN55B8500 to a DirecTV HD tuner? Are there specific TV settings to use for this cable type


The best cable hook up to use is the just the one HDMI cable. Just hook it up from box to TV and change the input selection on your TV to HDMI. Then on the Directv Box, change the resolution to 1080 for the best image.

I have an olevia hdmi capable tv and a non hd verizon box what do i need to hook it up cable wise


The best picture would be HDMI, but as you stated the cable box is not HDMI. The next best connection is component cables (red,green,blue) from video output of cable box to video input of TV. You will also need RCA audio cables (red and white) from audio output of cable box to audio input of TV. I hope this helps.

My picture is not good. I'm hooked up to digital


to get best picture and sound you need to use HDMI connection. This is normally if you have a HD cable box. If you don't have a HD box, use the coax connection directly from the cable line. On your TV, hit the menu button, use the arrow up/down to select manual channel search, select cable and hit enter. this will scan all the digital and analog channels.

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.

Need help hooking up TV, BluRay, Home Theatre & cable box


I found that since the Panasonic TH50PZ80U TV has only 2 HDMI ports on the back of the TV, the best solution for me was to use component (red, blue, green) cables to connect the Home Theatre to the TV. I suppose I/you could connect the home theatre to the HDMI port on the front panel, but I don't want cables hanging out the front of the TV (personal preference). Unfortunately, I am no longer able to use the VIERA Link functionality available by connecting all Panasonic components to each other using HDMI cables, but I feel it's a small price to pay for the incredible picture quality acheived by using the HDMI cable to connect the HD Cable Box to the TV. I may yet be able to control everything using the HD Cable Box remote, but I haven't gotten that far yet but I've got Comcast coming on Saturday and hopefully they can let me know if this is possible: let me know if you have a solution.

So here are the components and the cable types used to connect:
  1. HD Cable Box to TV: HDMI cable & Optical Audio cable
  2. Home Theatre to TV: Red, Blue & Green component cables
  3. BluRay Player to TV: HDMI cable
I hope this helps someone else.

Set up


The specs I am reading online are saying that it has digital coax connection. If your hooking up hd cable or hd satellite box some of those have a digital coax output on them. If your hd cable/satellite box only has optical out the system you have says it comes with a optical to coax converter which is pretty cool. So you should definately be able to hook up that sound system to your cable/sat box digitally for best sound. The only other way would be to run stereo red,white cables from your cable/sat box to your stereo as a last resort.

Connecting my Humax Series 2 Tivo to a Motorola HD DCH3416 Cable Box


Yes, the Tivo will just record in standard definition, instead of high def.

You can still hook the two up together, though.

What I would suggest (and have done in the past) is this:
Split the cable coming out of the cable box.
Hook one up to your HD cable box, and the other up to the Tivo.
Hook the output of your HD cable box to one HD input on your TV
Hook the output of your Tivo up to a different (non-HD) input on your TV.

This will allow you to watch HD while recording standard definition, and vise versa.

Running the HD through the Tivo will work, but will limit you to not be able to watch HD through it.
