Spectrum TV

I want to use an HDMI cable, but my TV does not have an HDMI port.

If your TV does not have an HDMI port but you want to use HDMI cables, check for the following:

  • HDMI cables are for use with HDTVs only. If you aren't sure if your TV is HD, check your TV for an HD sticker or your TV's user manual.
  • Older TVs may have a DVI port rather than an HDMI port. With a DVI port you can use an HDMI to DVI cable to connect to your HD Spectrum Receiver.
    • You will need to use separate audio cables with an HDMI to DVI cable.

If you do not have an HDMI or DVI port, you can use component cables instead. This connection still provides HD programming.
