Starting from an HDTV cable box using a split cable going to the pip output can you connect another tv to the pip output and get an HDTV picture on the other tv?

Hi, It really depends on your PIP output on the cable box and whether or not the output is HDTV or standard TV. And in some cases, the PIP output will only display non-HDTV channels, depending again, on the box and the cable company. However, IF the cable company says that a HDTV signal is available from the PIP output on the cable box, then it'll probably work. The only way to be sure is to connect a TV and find out. Hope this helps, Cubby

Can you buy your own box to receive the HD TV signal if you have just purchased a HD TV and have not signed up for HD TV service from your cable company yet?

Please note that you don't have to have HD TV service to play HD TV games, but you do to watch high definition television. If your TV is an "HDTV" (as opposed to a "HD ready TV"), then the Radio Shack box isn't going to do you any good. There are two ways that you might be able to get HDTV programing without buying HD cable service. Your HDTV should have a digtial over the air tuner (ATSC in the US). If you are located in an area were you can get TV reception with an antenna, then just hook up a TV antenna to your HDTV and tune into a HDTV broadcast. Some cable systems include non-premium digial channels in a format called QAM. Most HDTVs have a QAM tuner built into them. Just connect your HDTV directly to your cable outlet (not through a converter box) and scan for digital cable channels.

How do you hook up your ps3 with out an internet connection?

Plug it into your TV with the cable that came with it or if you have a HDTV buy a HDMI cable and plug that into your HDTV and PS3.. Plug the power in and turn it on. You should see it on your TV screen and if not turn your TV to the same input you plugged the PS3 into. Owners of the 720P HDTVs or those without HDMI can buy PS3 component cables with 5 color coded connections that use RCA plugs for the HDTV inputs. Both the HDTV 1080p and 720 HDTV owners can connect with the A/V cable that came with the PS3, but then it will be standard 480i from your PS3

Where does the HDMI cable for the playstation 3 hook up to the tv?

The PS3 end of the cable is always a HDMI plug and the other side goes to the TV. If you have a HDTV with a spot for HDMI input you purchase a HDMI Cable with a HDMI plug on both sides and use that to connect the HDTV. Some older HDTVs do not have an HDMI plug for input and instead have either S-Video or Component connections for input and then you purchase a PS3 S-Video or Component Cable to match what you need for your HDTV. The PS3 cable which has a HDMI for the PS3 side connects to the HD inputs on the side or back of your HDTV with the component or S-Video plugs. None of these connections can be made to a standard TV for that you need the A/V cable that came with the PS3. The standard cable can also be used on a HDTV until you purchase an optional cable.

How do you hookup a cable box to a tv?

All Cable TV receivers are a little different. Look at the back of the Cable box receiver and you should see a coaxial out (TV out) or a HDMI port (TV out-for HD Programming). If you do not have a HDMI out port on your cable box (you need a HDTV for this as well), you will need to run a coax wire from the Cable TV receiver to your television coax input. In most cases your TV will then be tuned to channel 3 or 4 to receive programming. If you have HD programming with your Cable company and have an HDMI out on your Cable box, you can use an HDMI cord and connect it to your HDMI port on your HDTV. You will then need to tune to the HDMI input to receive programming.

What if you have a tv with ps3 do you need a HDMI?

If your TV is an HDTV with HDMI connection it is foolish not to spend the money to purchase and use the cable. The cheapest games are more than the cost of the cable and you would get much more from the system. It is what the PS3 was designed and the games it plays was designed for. The prices for HDTVs are low and you will be able to tell the difference if you upgrade your TV, but when you already have an HDTV you really need to add the HDMI cable. Of course a HDMI plug is for HDTVS and not Standard 480i TVs and the standard A/V cable that comes with a PS3 will work with the HDTV, just not with the same results.

What other TV reception can you get other than HDTV?

Television reception began with analogue. Analogue signal is now the few local stations you might get without a cable box.Cable Television with a set-top box de-scrambles television signals, permitting you to receive hundreds of channels under "Basic" cable TV subscription. Cable TV can be enabled for "Pay TV" channels, if you are willing to pay more.HDTV is a setting in a television (see set up screens). HDTV-ready or enabled TV sets mean the TVs can receive HDTV signal. If you have a set-top cable box, it is either the old version that just descrambles signals OR the box itself is specifically for HDTV. Talk to your cable provider.
