Re: cabe hook up tore out

Most cable boxes have outputs for audio and video. Yellow is the video, red is the audio out for the right side and white is the audio for the left.
Take a set of RCA jacks and hook it up to the back of the set on input one.
Yellow to Yellow
Red to Red
White to White.
You need further instruction, respond to this post and I will reply.

I'm not sure that the set can handle the speed, but make sure that the sync pulse is on the green when you make the connection. Also, you must use the component input not the composite. IF hte picture ends up being purple, you will need ot change the set from YPrPb to RBG as well.

Good luck,

Can a computer be hooked up to this tv, if so how?

A computer can't be connected directly. You will need a video converter of some sort to go from VGA to Component Video. If your computer's video card has TV-out functionality, you just need a VGA to component video cable. Otherwise, you will need a set-top box converter, such as .

I wish I could be of more help.

Cable companies are slowly but surely reducing the channels you can get without a digital box, which they will supply. You will need to cantact them and rent a HD cable box or converter from them that will work with your displays built-in tuner. However, if your display is HD compatible, then I would just asked your cable company for and non-DVR HD cabe box and connect it to your display with component cables....

Try using different inputs besides the RF input. Connect your PS2 and DVD player using component inputs. With two component inputs, there's no reason in the world not to do this.
