How is the HD cable box hooked up to the tv? Through a coaxial cable connection or other connection? If you have the model number of your cable box I can give you exact directions. Depending on if it has an optical audio connection or if you just want to use standard composite connections. You will output the audio from the cable box to the RCA system. Then go to the tv if you would like from the RCA system. The video cable depending on what type of connection you want to use can go straight from the cable box to the tv. If you need any further assistance please let me know.
Thank you,

    The box is hooked up to the back of what on input 1? When dealing with how to hook up all the components in and out of a stereo system it can get complicated even though it is basically fairly simple. I will need as much detail as possible in your feedback to give you the best course of action. For anything you want audio for it will need to go through the receiver. Once I have more information I can continue to assist you.
    Thank you,

    You can view/download the manual at that link. What you would do is go audio out from the cable box to the stereo so you could have sound going through the stereo. Any device you want to have sound coming through the stereo will need to output from said device into an audio input on the stereo. So if you wanted audio coming out of the stereo from your ps3, you would audio out either through the L/R composite connection or a digital audio output into the stereo. Please take a moment to accept/rate my assistance as you should find it more then helpful.
    Thank you,

If you look real close at the VGA port on the TV, you will see a small mini phone jack 'AUDIO' that is for attaching the audio cable with mini stereo phone plug at both ends, one end is to the TV PC audio input jack, another end goes to the PC AUDIO line out or headphone out.

OK! First, you have NO TUNER in that model. It's called a monitor. You have to use a cable box, satellite receiver or use an older style vcr with a tuner in it. With the vcr you won't see HD stations that broadcast in HD. You will see the old style analog.

For a standard VCR which is what most people have, all you need to do is connect a yellow RCA cable for video from the yellow output jack on the cable box rear panel to the VCR's yellow video input jack on its rear panel. Next connect a white RCA audio cable from the cable box white RCA output jack to the VCRs white RCA audio input jack. You can record a cable show by selecting the LINE input on the VCR and selecting the TV show on the cable box.

Now for playback, connect the VCR to your TV. Connect a yellow video cable from the VCR's yellow output jack to the TV's yellow video input jack. Same for the white audio connection. Select on the TV, the source input for the VCR. Its not complicated and you should not need any other devices for a standard setup with a digital cable box and vcr.

I have the same tv with the same problem ---Green and I have found that the HDMI cable from my Blue rayplayer works just fine when the regular tv is green /I have come to the conclusion that the digital board is not working right so I just went to cox and got the box . I am going to hook my cable up to the top set box from cox and then I am going to hook the component video cables to the tv then I will bypass the Board ,and not scew the cable into the tv . we shall see I think it will work as long as my HDMI and component jacks dont give out to .

If you hooked up the satelite box to your tv Automaticly the Satelite box is the one who pick up the channels (from the satelite)
In this case your tv is acting as a monitor only. Try to connect your tv with HDMI cable or COMPONENT cable for best picture. Don't use RF antenna input to hook up your Satelite Box. Hope this Helps
