How do I install HDMI cables?

Like other cables, HDMI cables can just be plugged in at each end to the two devices.

To connect your HD converter to your HDTV with an HDMI cable:

  1. Turn off the equipment.
  2. Connect one end of the cable to one of the TV's HDMI In ports.
  3. Connect the other end of the cable to the converter's HDMI Out port.
  4. Turn on your equipment, and then tune the TV to the appropriate input, such as HDMI 1 or Video 1. Refer to your TV's owner's manual for which input to select.

Other compatible equipment can be connected to your TV with HDMI in the same way.

To connect a Blu-ray player to your HDTV:

  1. Turn off the equipment.
  2. Connect one end of the cable to one of the TV's HDMI In ports.
  3. Connect the other end of the cable to the Blu-ray player's HDMI Out port.
  4. Turn on your equipment, and then tune the TV to the appropriate input.
