Trutech 35" LCD connecting to cable box

Ok, I know the quality of this TV is not good but wondering what causes this. Have cable box hooked up to TV with video cable (yellow/red/white) into input (AV1). What is weird is local channels come in fine (abc,cbs,nbc,pbs etc.) However, when you change channel on cable box and go to a cable channel like TNT,WBS it displays it at the bottom of the screen like all the channels but just stays black. It does this for all cable channels so it shows what channel it is at the bottom of the screen but isn't displaying it. The trutech TV doesn't have a channel set/format option like other TV's so wondering what is going on?

How do I hook up the DVD/VCR to cable box and Vizio HDTV?


both should be hooked directly to tv

VCR side of combo should be hooked up with composite video(yellow, red, white wires) to video 1 input

DVD side of combo should be hooked up component video (red, blue, green wires and red white for sound)

cable box should be hooked up HDMI or component to TV if HD or composite video if SD

hope this helps

good luck

I have a cablevision box with a set of red, green and blue wires and another set of red and white wires. How do I hook the cable to tv to get cable? The colors on the front and back of the Mickey tv are...


hi. The colored cord you described are for high definition, there should also be some jacks on the back of the cablevision box that say "video out" "left""right"

Find those, and the video out is the yellow in jack on Mickey, and the Left is the white jack on Mickey

If you can't find those, then use the cable tv out from the box to hook it up to your tv.

This is all that is needed to hook up really, just the coax cable from the box to Mickey.
I know Mickey has a antenna cable jack on the back.

Just run a cable from the box to mickey, put Mickey on channel 3, or 4, depending on what the setting is on the box, and you should be good to go!

How do I plug my cable TV into the receiver and then into the TV? Whats wrong with the following: 1. Plug the cable into the antenna jack on the receiver 2. Plug the red/yellow/white cable into the...


When we talk about cables in an environment that also includes "cable TV", digital and analog audio; and video we need to be VERY specific.

Therefore, I could be misinterpreting what you meant in the following.

I doubt the receiver is designed to BE your cable box so hooking the TV-source cable to the FM antenna jack on the receiver is probably a bad idea.

If you HAVE a cable or satellite box, treat it like any other audio/video source and run its BEST audio digitally to the AVR and its BEST video to the monitor or TV (*) where the BEST most-specialized electronics will have the first shot at each function. You could also run basic composite video from the AVR out to the Monitor for the AVR's internal setup purposes.

* Even if it means bypassing the AVR. HDMI or DVI, component, composite are the various video outputs in descending order of quality. The TV deserves the BEST video.

If you're using the red/white/yellow cables for analog audo and composite video then you are making a major compromise in the quality of both.

Hi,
This would be 5 pins, red-white is for audio and rest of 3 pins red-green-blue for video signal, it calls component video.
Find out red-green-blue jacks at back of TV that would be label as Y, Yr, Yb
Plug each pin in same color to get color picture.

LCD TV IS CONNECTED TO CABLE USING SATELITE. CABLE IS RUN APPROX 150 FT FROM SAT DISH TO TV. RECEPTION IS VERY GRAINY,,,IS IT THE LENGTH OF CABLE? THE CABLE IS 100FT CONNECTED TO 50FT CONNECTED TO TV....


Is the satellite receiver HD or standard?
If it is standard you should hook up the box to the tv via RCA cables (Yellow/Red/White) and this will help with the picture quality.

If it is a HD receiver then hook up the box to the tv using a component video cable and this will drastically change the quality of the picture.

Using a coax cable to attach from the box to the tv essentially is connecting an analog signal to the tv and this will produce a lower quality picture...

Good Luck!!

I spent the last hour on the phone with tech support for my local cable company. after the duration, we came to the conclusion that there was in fact, not a space for the red, yellow and white chords....


Without seeing anything, the yellow=video, the red and white=audio. The yellow/video "output" of the cable box goes to the yellow/video "input" of the TV. The red and white are the audio that go from audio "output" of the cable box to the audio "input"of the TV. I don't know what the Cable company was telling you???? The cables are "RCA" and give you the worst clarity for a picture. If you cable box has three output ports colored Red, Green, and Blue ("Component') and you TV has the same three as inputs, that will make your picture much better. If you can hook it up with the component jacks, you will still need the audio RCA (red and white) between the two units. I hope this helps.

Lcd tv hookup


Ive got 3 samsung tv's (lcd, plasma, DLP) and I use HDMI cables on all of them. Its the only way to get the full potential out of the tv. When you use the red/white/yellow RCA cables the signal is anolog aka "old technology". Component cables are good but HDMI is the best. HDMI is a digital signal and thats what all the components that go with the tv should be run on. If your dvd player does not have an HDMI output I would suggest getting one that has that output. As for the cable box most require you to upgrade to digital cable in order to get one with an HDMI output. If you dont want to spend the money on new components and run what you have now the picture will stay mediocre at best. Good luck hope this helped

NO volume


often people make the mistake of hooking their devices to the tv using more than one input.  a cable box for example may have many different types of outputs but you are only going to use one to the tv (preferrably the highest quality connection). try switching the inputs on the tv to see if you get the same picture on two different inputs.   If using s-video, you will also need a red & white RCA cable for audio.  The order of video cable quality from lowest to highest is this: Coax(screw on), Composite(yellow,red,white), S-video(Round)+(red,white), Component(video=red,green,blue), HDMI(carries HD video & sound)

It sounds like your cables are connceted ok, but what you neede to do is to be able the switch from one video mode to the other so lets go through the cable and vrc conncetions again just to make sure. From your cable set top box connect your component video (RGB) video out to your TV (RGB) video in via the (RGB)cables. From your VCR connect your composite video (yellow) out to your TV composite video in withe the composite video (yellow) cable. From your VCR (Left & Right audio out)connect your left and right audio connections (White and Red) to the Audio in of the TV (Left and Right). Whith this setup you should be able to use the TV to switch between the two A/V inputs using the remote control.
