If I install HDMI cables, do I still need my old cables?

When using HDMI cables, you should not connect any other type of cable between the two devices. HDMI carries both video and audio signals, eliminating the need for additional wires.

Before connecting two devices with HDMI, ensure that you have removed other types of cables between the two devices. Using extra connections can prevent the HDMI cables from working properly. See How do I install HDMI cables?
