CONNECTING EXTERNAL DEVICES - CABLE/SATELLITE, ANTENNA, DVD AND BLURAY

High Definition Connection

If the external device being connected is capable of high definition, HDMI or Component cables are needed.

Blu-ray players manufactured after January of 2011 require an HDMI cable to produce 720-1080p resolution.

For all other devices, Component will send a 720p signal to the television if the external device supports 720p.

Each external device that supports 1080p will send a 1080p signal with HDMI.

HDMI cables will connect two devices by inserting the HDMI cable into the HDMI Out on the external device and then to HDMI IN on the television.

Component cables will connect two devices by inserting the Component Video/Audio cables (Red, Blue, Green, Red, White) into the Component Out on the external device and then to Component In on the television.

Standard Definition

If the external device being connected is not capable of high definition, Composite (AV) or Coaxial (Coax, Antenna) cables are needed for a standard definition connection.

Most, if not all devices whether Standard Definition or High Definition, come with Composite or Coaxial connections.

AV cables will connect 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.

The Coax cable will 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.

Antenna

The antenna being used may either be indoor or outdoor.

The coaxial cable will connect to the Antenna Out port on the wall terminal (outdoor) or Antenna/Cable out port on the indoor antenna to the Antenna/Cable In port on the Television.
