Question about Pioneer PureVision PDP-4340HD 43 in. Plasma HDTV
I was given the above model TV today. The original owners had it in storage and didn't install it themselves in the first place so they are not certain I have all the necessary wires. They gave me an HDMI cable but I'm not sure if this overides the need to use the black and white "System Cable" wires that connect the Media Reciever to the TV. The HDMI slots are not even shown in the owners manual but it's clearly stated on the Media Reciever. The HDMI does plug in from the Media Reciever to the back of the TV where the White portion of the duel system cable goes (the sytem cables consist of a white plugg in type connection and the black is a squeeze type of connection. I have no idea what their purpose is for each. My question is does the HDMI plug go into where the "White" portion of the System Cables go and do I still need the black plug installed? The problem is the White and Black System Cable wasn't provided (only the HDMI cable) and the original owners have no idea if they used it.
Also, as explained in the manual for connecting for cable TV to watch Digital TV channels they have me using a splitter from the cable and connecting two cables to the back of the Media Reciever. Is this just older technology that has since been able to be used with one wire? I never heard of connecting two cable wires into any reciever for digital reception before.
Thanks for any help you can give. I set it up with just the HDMI cable and I only get the red and green blocks on the screen. I did this with the splitter set up and just the "conventional" channel set up which is to connect the cable to the "in" on the Media Reciever. They always show a "cable converter" in the diagram as well. Is this just in case you didn't have cable and just analog?
I can really use a Guru or this TV is useless. Not even sure if they sell those parts any more. Thanks!

SOURCE: Pioneer PDP-4340HD and 1080p
Features of Pioneer PDP-4340HD Unique among today's HDTVs, the
Pioneer PDP-4340HD runs on a 72Hz vertical refresh rate. That's an
exact multiple of the 24 frames per second at which films are
displayed, enabling the panel to use a video-processing technique
called 3:3 pull-down (instead of the 2:3 pull-down
used in previous 60Hz displays). In English, that means you should see
a more stable picture when viewing DVD movies and other video material
that was originally shot on film. Unfortunately, that didn't seem to be
the case in our tests (see Performance for more).
This panel shares with its like-size, similarly priced competition a 1,024x768 native resolution. That number of pixels bests less expensive 852x480 EDTV models and results in sharper high-def images (but not in sharper DVD or standard TV images). Even a count of 1,024x768 pixels can't display 720p, the lowest high-def resolution, in full detail, but it's as high as plasmas get in this screen-size range.

Is not capable, i think.
