Ther is no "cable" connector on this model tv. Check your direct tv control module "cable box" for a hdmi output. If you have that output, you will need ahdmi cable for HD broadcast. If you donot have a hdmi output on your direct tv box, contact direct tv for the right one. Do not use RCA connectors because the picture will be fuzzy do to in-ability for rca connectoe to send HD signal. You MUST have hdmi signal from cablle box to tv.
Good luck.

How do I hook up my 55 inch led tv to a stereo for better sound


In many cases newer tv's do not have an audio out, some have a headphone jack on the side (Small usually blue)

Otherwise if you are wanting to get better sound from a DVD / Blueray / Satellite / Cable box, You can put the audio from these devices into your sound system, then plug your sound systems audio out into the tv.
The video out from your devices will need to connect directly into the tv.

If using HDMI or S-Video that carries both audio and video, slitter / separation boxes are available, but usually degrade sound and audio quality.

The above would look something like

Cable box audio out (red / white) to Stereo audio IN. >> Stereo Audio OUT to TV audio in.
Yellow (Video) Cable from cable box then goes directly to the TV Video IN. Just make sure the audio and video cables are going to the same section (Some tv's may have multiple audio / video in's

My set is plugged into a cable box. the tv will not turn on either manually or with the remote.


Plug the power cord directly into a wall power outlet, and make sure that the standby light is lit (turn it on/off manually to see if anything changes). If there isn't any light, then it's most likely broken.
If the TV works again, being plugged into the power outlet in the wall, then the problem is with the cable box (i bet you figured that out too).

I just bought a m221nv from ebay tv dealer an he said i could jus plug it in in my kitchen, bedrm or ? and watch it via my router cause it has wifi no need connect cable, antenna or anything but i cant get...


The wifi connection will allow you to access content via the Vizio Internet Apps (Netflix for example) but not tv broadcasts.
Your tv can access tv broadcasts (CBS, NBC, FOX, ABC) over the air but w/o an external antenna the signal and therefore the quality will probably be weak.
To access cable/direct tv/fios content you will need to connect the tv via a cable.

How do i hook up my hd tv to record hd channels to my vcr


this is a hard question to answer because you cant just record from a tv to a vcr if your recording from an antenna you would have to plug it directly into the vcr and the vcr wouldn't be able to use the digital antenna anyway, if your recording from a satallite or cable u would have to go directly to the vcr then to the tv and the vcr cant record in hd

Sounds like there is too much voltage going into the same outlet. Please keep in mind cable boxes as well as your tv hold a higher amount of voltage then your dvd player. If your tv is plugged into the back of your cable box, unplug that and just plug it directly into the wall. If not, get a power strip and plug it in that way.

Connecting HT/Cable box to TV?


Get a fiber optic (Toslink Optical) cable to plug into the TV's optical OUT between the red/white RCA audio and the spot where you plug in your cable TV, to the Optical IN on your HT-DS610. This way all audio coming in to your TV from any source goes directly to your hi-fi in all it's splendor.

Have fun!

Channel Scan on my Philips 26" TV only finds the local channels.


Hi.

you should go into your tv's setup menu and go to the tuner settings and make sure it is set to CATV (cable tv) and not Antenna/Air also splitting a cable to many times can cause the signal to weaken and gain a lot of noise/distortion that could be an issue that can only be solved by having the company come to the house and do a test ALSO when your in the tuner menu in under your tv's setup menu try adding a non local channel manualy and then see if the tv will tune to it, if so then you might have to add them manually at the worst... my guess is that it is not set to CATV/cable tv hope this helps and if not i hope someone else can.

The only audio out jack on your TV is for the headphone on the left side of the TV. You need to purchase a 3.5 mm to RCA audio cable, connect the 3.5mm jack to the left side of your TV and the 2 RCA audio cable ends to the audio in of your Home Theater and then select AUX 1 or AUX 2 on the home theater depending on which jacks you plugged into.
