First off, I would go to the Olevia web site and download the user's manual
for the set you are looking at. It will show all the interconnections. I
ened up downloading, and printing parts of, for a half dozen sets. Paper is
cheap compared to a TV. Unless your cable guy is smarter than the ones
around here, they only know how to hook up to an HD set by using component
video cables. Meanwhile, I am trying to get a cable card to work right. They
keep telling me they know what the problem is, and will fix in in a few
minutes. Hasn't happened yet, after 4 days. (Some HD channels work)
Cable boxes that I have seen have a DVI, rather than an HDMI output. There
is a DVI to HDMI adapter cable, but that won't work with some TV if there is
no external audio input associated with the HDMI input.
