Spectrum TV

How many HDMI cables do I need?

Because HDMI cables carry both an audio and video signal, only one HDMI cable is needed when connecting two devices.

  • HDMI cables are used with HD equipment. If your TV does not have an HDMI port, you can use component cables instead.
  • Standard definition TVs and Spectrum Receivers do not use HDMI. You can use composite cables for standard definition equipment.

Did You Know?

  • You can also connect other compatible equipment with an HDMI cable, such as a Blu-ray player or some video game consoles. You will need one HDMI cable for each piece of equipment you want to connect to your TV.
  • If you want to connect multiple HDMI devices to your TV, ensure that your TV has enough HDMI ports for each connection.
