Question about Televison & Video
Have new HD TV hooked up and connected to HD DVR digital cable box (and service through Time Warner) and new home theater system. Used "monster cables" and everything is working, but the picture is awful on all channels, regardless of HD or not. Even the radio sounds "snowy." Any ideas of where to start looking for a solution? We're new to HD.Thanks.
SOURCE: How do I hook up
If I may add to the postings of Ekse and TampaNative......
Depending on what available cables and connectors that you may have the basic idea is from the cable company in to your Motorola receiver then to your Samsung HT-X50 then to the Sony Wega as below image shows. All other additional devices such as another DVD player or an iPod Nano with Video Dock or anything else would have to be connected to the Samsung.
All external devices would have to be plug in the the different INPUTs as you may decide which is to which. What is important to remember is that everything goes through the Samsung be it incoming or outputs.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards.
Thank you for using FixYa.

While I personally can't provide you with any model-specific home theater system recommendations, there are a couple of common ways that you can generally configure your home theater.
Connecting several devices directly to the HTIB system may typically allow you to minimize the number of remote controls necessary, as long as the HTIB system supports the use of a universal remote. Should you not necessarily care if you have to change back-and-forth between two remotes however, you may have a wider variety of possible configurations available.
In order to use only HDMI cable connections to set up your home theater, you most likely would need an HTIB system with three HDMI ports: one for your TV, one for your PS3 and one for your cable box. Each device would require a separate HDMI cable running between it and the receiver. This option (in theory) would allow you to use one universal remote to control each device, assuming that they are all compatible with the same remote.
Another common configuration you might wish to try requires you to connect your cable box and PS3 directly to your TV. By doing so however, you might limit yourself to using an optical digital audio cable to make the connection between your TV and many HTIB systems. In this configuration, the cable box and PS3 would again have their own separate HDMI cables, while the optical digital audio cable would need to be run from the Digital Audio-Out port on the back of your TV to the Digital Audio-In port on the receiver. This option essentially treats the HTIB system as an expansion device, instead of the center of your home theater configuration.
Should you need any additional information or suggestions, remember that you may always speak with a sales representative at your local Best Buy™ store for further assistance.
Hope this helps you out.

SOURCE: TV only will play HD Channels
This must be the setup for your TV box. Contact the support for your TV box.
Normaly, the TV should auto select the proper operation mode.

We have Comcast and we plugged the cable straight into our Bravia, searched for Digital Channels and it found 131. We actually get all the HD channels that we had using the box, plus a few more. It's worth a try.
