    • 1 Examine the back of the your cable box and the back of your Samsung HDTV. Note which cable jacks are of an identical size and color. Those are the ones that can be used to connect the two devices. Samsung HDTVs cluster all the jacks in a single panel near the power cord.
    • 2 Look at the square rectangular boxes labeled "HDMI In." These are for high-definition multimedia interface cables--combination A/V cables that provide the highest possible image and sound clarity. Look at the back of your cable box for an identical jack labeled "HDMI Out." If you see one, connect the two jacks using an HDMI cable. If you don't, you need to use another set of cables to hook up your cable box.

    • 3 Check for a series of three round jacks labeled "Component In" and color coded in red, green and blue. These are component video jacks, which provide a good HD picture, but not as good as HDMI. If your cable box has an identical set of "Out" jacks, use them to connect the two components.
    • 4 Look for a pair of red and white jacks (possibly connected to a yellow one). These are audio RCA jacks. If you're using component video cables to hook up your cable box, you will need to hook these two up as well: Component video cables don't provide sound. Any cable box that uses component video cables should also have "Out" jacks for RCA audio cables.
    • 5 Find the raised circular jack with a pinhole in the center of a milky white plastic interior. This is the coaxial jack. Samsung HDTVs label them "Ant In." Every cable box should have a corresponding jack labeled "Out" or "Ant Out." If none of the other cable jacks on the cable box match, use a length of coaxial cable to connect the TV to the cable box through these two jacks. You can also use this connection to hook the TV directly to the wall cable.
    • 6 Turn on your TV and cable box, and set the TV to the input jack connected to the cable box. You can do this by pushing the Menu button on the remote, scrolling down to the "Input" option and pushing "Enter." That will let you cycle through the various input options, labeled by cable type (HDMI, component video). Press "Enter" again when you reach the right component, then exit the menu. You should now be able to watch TV as normal.

I need philips universal 4 digit remote codes


Not sure I can help. You might do well to call Samsung 800-SAMSUNG. But I have the codes that should work if you were hooking the Samsung to a Philips set top box or cable box. Perhaps they are the same? (And how lucky are you that you landed this jewel! I love this unit!

NO SOUND ON TV. CABLE REMOTE AND TV REMOTES HAVE THE MUTE OFF. TRIED WATCHING DVD, WORKS FINE WITH SOUND, THEN BACK TO CABLE, NO-SOUND. PLEASE HELP! TV IS SAMSUNG


You have just performed the best way to troubleshoot this kind of problem. Check all cables on the back of the tv and your sources and look for any loose or disconnected cables. Next, Hook your DVD palyer to the SAME input that you are using for the cable box. Now if you have good pix and sound then you have a bad cable box. If not then you have a bad Main bd in the tv.

Connecting samsung home theater to samsung lcd tv and direct tv


Need to get more granular on this, Does the volume work HT remote, for like radio, cd, ipod audio? For you to use the tv audio through the HTB the tv's audio settings should be on the "fixed" output option. This gives a line level to the Amp independant of the tvs volume adhjustment. Otherwise you will need to adjust tvs volume 75% or so before the audio amp will reproduce a good volume. Turn down audio amp prior to making any adjustments. Let me know thx

Recording from cable dvr


You have to hook up an AV cable from the box to the DVDR.. Out on the cable box to IN on the DVD player.
Then put your DVD player on AV1 - ( you can do this by pressing the INPUT SEL button on the DVDR remote)

Then put the Cable box on whatever channel you want to record. And press the record button on the DVDR and you will record whatever channel the cable box is on

If you can't get to AV1 then you have to disable cable box control (menu>setup>system>cable box control>off

Black borders


Check the resolution settings on your cable box, you may have to call your cable provider to find out how to get into the settings menu, there is a stretch function in the settings that should make all the lower channels auto fit your screen, also see if there's a p=size button on your remote control, try pushing that when on the channels that have sidebars.
