What type of cords do I need to hook up a akia PDP4273m1 to my cable box


Which cable box are you trying to connect to the PDP4273m1? The best choice of cable will depend on the outputs available on the cable box. If your cable box has HDMI (looks like a rectangle with small cutouts on one long side) out, get an HDMI (type A on both sides) video cable and connect it between that port and the TV's HDMI in. (This connection doesn't require an extra audio cable.) If your cable box has a DVI (out, get a DVI to HDMI adapter and the HDMI cable (or a DVI to HDMI cable). Connect the DVI side to the cable box and then the HDMI cable to the TV Then get an RCA audio cable (two male ends on each side, usually red and white). Connect this to the audio out jacks on the cable box and to the DVI audio in ports on the TV.

If you do not have either of those outputs, check for a component video/audio output. Get the component video cable (with 3 RCA plugs on each end - red, blue and green) and an RCA audio cable. Match the colors on each side as you connect the devices.

If those aren't available, the S-video or composite video cables will work. The composite video cable comes with the audio connectors (red, white, yellow RCA plugs). They aren't part of the S-video cable and must be obtained separately. These are limited to standard video (no HD) so they are not the best choices with your tv.

If your cable box has SCART out, you will need an adapter for that. Most provide composite or S-video out. See http://www.svideo.com/scart2.html for one of these. Note: you will need to match the adapter to the CART output or get a converter.

The connections should be from the left side: serial port (RS-232 for service), HDMI, digital audio out (for connecting to a home theater receiver), DVI audio In, two component video and audio in, a composite video/audio in and out and an S-video with audio in. The manual for the PDP4273M1 is available from Retrevo here: http://www.retrevo.com/support/Akai-PDP4273M1-TVs-manual/id/741bh140/t/2/ . You will need to enter a code to download the manual.

i hope this helps. Please add a comment with your cable box make/model/provider if you want more help.

(very few TVs come with the A/V cables these days. Some set-top boxes will come with the composite video cables.)

I cannot hook up my game system to the tv and don't know where to start. help?


Hi

to hook up your console to your tv your console has to be switched on and in good condition,A lso you will be needing an A/V(Audio-Visual) cable, a cable that has to or three outlets normally red,yellow and white(Yellow is for video while white and red are the Audio outlets for stereo) These outlets go into an inlet on your tv and the other end goes into the back of your console

This enables you to see the picture and hear the sounds.If this is done then you are good to go.

Hello,

If you only have one set of inputs on the television, you can purchase a switch. You would need a two-way audio/video switch, but, you may want to get a three or four-way in case you need to add more devices in the future.

Here is what one looks like:

I'm simply looking for the most efficient way to hook up my HD-TV with HDMI inputs to both my cable box (with HDMI inputs) and my DVD player/recorder so that I can record from the TV I watch.  ...


The way you have it hooked up right now will not work unless you have a coaxial out on your cable box going to the dvd recorder. Even then, picture quality will be severely degraded. The best way to do it is to leave your cable box hooked up to your TV via HDMI and connect your dvd recorder to your cable box via component video if your dvd recorder has a component video input. If it doesn't, then just use the composite video input. That way your picture quality will be better and you will still be able to record with the TV off.
