CONNECTING GAMING SYSTEM

 

 

Connecting a Gaming System

 

 

High Definition Connection

 

If the gaming system being connected to the television supports high definition resolution then

either HDMI or component video & audio cables are needed.

 

For most other peripheral devices, component output will send 720p signals to the television if

the external device supports only up to 720p.

 

Each external device supporting 1080p will send 1080p signal with HDMI.

 

Use HDMI cable to connect the two devices by inserting the HDMI Out on the gaming console

system to the HDMI IN on the television.

 

Component cable can be used to connect the two devices by inserting the component video/audio

cables (red, blue, green, red, white) into the Component Out on the game system and then to

Component In on the television though the use of the both adapters supplied with TV.

 

Standard Definition Connection

 

If the game system being connected to the television does not support high definition, then

composite (AV) or coaxial (coax, antenna) cables will be needed for the standard definition

connection.

 

Most, if not all devices whether standard definition or high definition come with composite or

coaxial connections.

 

AV cables can be used to connect the two devices by inserting the AV cable into the AV Out

(red, white, yellow) on the external device and then to AV In on the television.

 

Use a coax cable to connect two devices by inserting the coax cable into the Antenna out (screws

into the unit) on the external device and then to Antenna In on the television.
