Use only the hdmi cord to hook it up and go to menu on the tv and select hdmi for hook up and you should get a picture. Make sure your cable cord is the only cord running to the cable box , you don't need any other cord.

Try identifying which caption is from the TV and which is from the cable box by turning the TV Closed Caption on and off while you have to sets of captioning. This will show you which closed caption never turns off.

I have a panasonic TC-P50ST30 and viera link will not work with my charter HD DVR cable box. I have a HDMI cable connecting them.What can I do?


Unfortunately, your charter HD DVR cable box is not a Viera link device that is compatible with the TC-P50ST30. Viera Link only works to control Panasonic HDAVI devices that are Viera Link ready (and that use the same Viera link coding) when using the HDMI cable. Thus some Viera link devices of different generations will not work with the same Viera link remote.

The manual for the TC-P50ST30 is available here: http://service.us.panasonic.com/OPERMANPDF/TCP42ST30.PDF . See page 32 for details on the Viera link controls.

I wish that I had better news for you. However, you will need to use separate remotes for your cable box and the TV.

I cannot get sound when using an HDMI with my Panasonic Viera TC-L32X2 LCD. I have tried three different HDMI cables, I'm highly confident that is not the problem. My cable provider had to override...


Is this TV new or new to you? I suggest you check two parts of the Audio > Advanced Audio menu. First check if the TV speakers are set to on. Next check the HDMI audio setting. This should be set to Digital. (There is an analog option that works with DVI to HDMI cables and older HDMI cables that aren't fully HDMI compliant. For these situations, you connect an audio cable between the cable box and TV. I believe your audio cable needs to have a 3.5 MM (M) end at the TV and plugs in at the computer audio input.)

Since your cable provider turned off the HDCP (high definition copy protection), it's possible that the cable box is treating the cable as being incapable of carrying the audio. Try using the Analog audio option, described above. You may want to check if your cables are fully-compliant with the HDMI specification (and HDCP). Then get the HDCP enabled in the cable box. Similarly, check the audio output settings for the cable box. (If you can access the Settings for the cable box without a service call, you should look at the Audio and Display settings. My cable box has Display options for HDMI versus DVI cables, as well as a choice for Digital Audio for the HDMI option in the Display sub-menu.)

I hope these ideas help. If you need more information, add a comment with the settings for your Audio and Display settings. The manual is available on the TC-L32X2 support page, http://shop.panasonic.com/support-only/TC-L32X2.html . The direct link to the manual is currently ftp://ftp.panasonic.com/television/om/tc-l32x2_en_om.pdf . See page 28 for the Audio menu options. Since you tried three cables, I think the odds of all three being bad is slim.

How do I hook this up to a COMCAST Cable Box...or do I hook it to the audio of the TV? Are cables the best or should I just buy an HDMI cable?


Cable (and any source) audio should go digitally and directly to your AV receiver. HDMI would work, too, but the TV would be the best place to send the HD video if you only have the one HDMI output at the Comcast box.

OTOH, I compared both HDMI and the component video hookups to my HDTV and could not see the difference. So I run my BD on HDMI (because it is by FAR the best video the TV will ever get) and component video from the HD cable box to the TV (because all broadcast video is bit- and bandwidth-limited somewhere along the line).

TV audio almost never originates with the TV unless it has an antenna, so why would you want to feed its audio to the receiver?

How do I connect to Sharp HDTV and Comcast cable


Your dvd recorder only has rca, red white yellow inputs it wont allow you to record in HD, although you can play your comcast box any hd, regular digital through and record. Hook up the comcast box if HD through preferably HDMI if not get one from comcast. The HD box is the only box that allow HDMI, component and regular RCA and some RF out. This way you can play HD to your set but also record through RCA or RF again will not allow for HD record unless its TiVo. Hope this helps

How to Hook up HDMI from Comcast Motarola Cable Box


Connect the HDMI outputs on your various components to the HDMI inputs on your receiver. Connect the HDMI output on the receiver to the input on your TV. HDMI incorporates digital audio, so no need to buy optical audio cables. If your receiver does not have HDMI inputs for all your components, you will need to make a choice. HDMI = Best, component video + optical audio = second best, S-video+ optical audio = third best

Need help hooking up TV, BluRay, Home Theatre & cable box


I found that since the Panasonic TH50PZ80U TV has only 2 HDMI ports on the back of the TV, the best solution for me was to use component (red, blue, green) cables to connect the Home Theatre to the TV. I suppose I/you could connect the home theatre to the HDMI port on the front panel, but I don't want cables hanging out the front of the TV (personal preference). Unfortunately, I am no longer able to use the VIERA Link functionality available by connecting all Panasonic components to each other using HDMI cables, but I feel it's a small price to pay for the incredible picture quality acheived by using the HDMI cable to connect the HD Cable Box to the TV. I may yet be able to control everything using the HD Cable Box remote, but I haven't gotten that far yet but I've got Comcast coming on Saturday and hopefully they can let me know if this is possible: let me know if you have a solution.

So here are the components and the cable types used to connect:
  1. HD Cable Box to TV: HDMI cable & Optical Audio cable
  2. Home Theatre to TV: Red, Blue & Green component cables
  3. BluRay Player to TV: HDMI cable
I hope this helps someone else.

Don't worry about sending the TV audio to the Panasonic. Just send a digital audio signal from the cable box to the Panasonic.

DVD - Panasonic connected via HDMI
TV - Panasonic connected via HDI
cable connected to cable box and TV. But you will not really be using the cable connection to the TV (TV Tuner) since you will want HD feed from cable box through HDMI input on TV.

You aren't concerned about feeding the TV speakers because your audio will always come from the home theatre.

Note that some components don't feed audio through HDMI, in which case you will need to use optical digital audio.
