Question about Zenith Z50PX2D 50 in. Plasma HDTV
I have digital cable, and I just purchased a plasma TV, do I need any special hook up devices or cables
You will want to use an HDMI connection for you cable. Check your cable box, it will be marked HDMI and probably have a cover snapped over it. Depending on the available inputs on your set and outputs on your other devices you may have to use component connections for your dvd player. Those will be marked "Y, Pr, and Pb" and will be RCA type connectors. (like the old stereo speaker hook ups). Check you cable box for an optical audio output and your surround sound unit if any or TV for optical audio inputs. They will be marked appropriately and may have some type of cover over them. Use that for your sound if you can. All of these cables can be obtained at your local electronics store or Walmart. You will want to measure all of your distances to insure the cables you buy are long enough to make the connections. Also be very careful of the optical cable. Don't kink it or fold it, they can be damaged internally and are fairly expensive. Lastly make sure all of your equipment is plugged into a good Surge suppressor not just an ordinary plug strip. A $20 investment for power conditioning can save you a lot of headaches down the road. I hope this helps you, Good Luck.
