HDTV Cable

I will be getting the HDTV Cable box from Rogers to go along with
DTV. How do i hook up the incoming cables from both along with
my DVD to my TV (Toshiba 50hdx82). I presently have s-video from
DTV going to TV & component video going to TV.

Do you have component inputs on your TV?

Connect the S-video and component video from the 3100HD to unused inputs on your HDTV. You might also want to connect a composite cable for the analog channels. You will be able to view all channels on the component outputs but picture quality will improve by switching to S-video for digital SD and composite for analog SD.

If you are not using an A/V system, connect the analog audio from the 3100 HD to your TV. You may need two or more Y connectors to feed all TV inputs.

If you are using an A/V system, connect both the digital audio and analog audio from the 3100HD to your A/V system. Digital audio is required if you want Dolby Digital surround. Analog audio is required for analog TV stations.

Go to the HT FAQ section - link below: See the post on "Cables & Connections". There's a link at the bottom showing how to connect a 3100HD, as well as more explanations.


If you have a VCR, check out the post "How to hook up a VCR & STB".
