Hello - The fact is that your TV, as a HDTV ready device, is really a display monitor that does not contain any TV tuner. There is no place to attach your coax TV connector.

To view TV on the unit you would have to either subscribe to cable or satellite TV service or buy yourself an external TV tuner such as listed HERE (I'm not recommending this tuner just showing the kind of device you would need.)

Regards and thank you for using Fix Ya.

    Hello again - In re-reading your question I just realized that you are speaking about hooking up a CABLE TV connection so my advice above is mute. Apologies. What you need if you don't already have it is a cable set top box from the cable company. If you don't have one they will provide you one free (with perhaps a small monthly fee of $5 (USD) or so). Along with that box they will provide the cables you require and installation instructions or you can have them come and install it.


    Again, sorry for the misinformation, and enjoy your HDTV programming.

I have a 42 inch maxent but i dont know where to plug my cable cord because i have a comcast box and theres no where in the t.v to plug my cable cord


If your comcast box has video (yellow), audio R (Red), audio L (White) out, just connect RC cables to the input of the TV at video, audio-in RC Jacks. If your comcast box has only RF out, buy one RF to audio-video converter and then connect these to the TV.

Hello, Currently I have Vaio laptop connected to my Vizio 42" inch flat screen TV. There's no audio coming from my Vizio TV. So I connected an audio cable connected to the stereo jack. Where do I connect...


You need a 1/8 in cord on both ends. Normally, its an 1/8 inch audio connection in your tv to work with PC (the same connection as when you plug it in your comp) So u would need a wire that both ends are 1/8 inch (Headphone jack sized)
