Partobooster skate With the popularity of cable TV rising at astronomical rates, it is important that you know how to hook up your cable TV box with your TV and enjoy the amazing video and audio quality of your subscribed channels. Although this might seem a daunting task to many people, the reality is that you will not need rocket science level education to be able to hook up your cable TV box with your TV. This will not only save you a lot of time and hassle but also save you the money that you would have otherwise used for paying the professional to set it up. Here is how you can set it up:

Step 1

You will need to ensure that your TV is compatible with the requirements for cable TV signal before you subscribe to one. The last thing that you will be wanting is to pay for the subscription and find out that your TV doesn’t support cable TV signals.

It is quite simple to identify whether or not your TV has the capabilities of receiving cable signal. You must check whether your TV supports more than 13 channels in order to ensure that it is cable TV compatible. Some TVs have up to 22 channels but at lower signal strength, for these TVs you must ensure that the total number of available channels is above 22.

When checking the compatibility of your TV with the cable TV signal, you need to find out whether or not it has a transformer attached to its backside which will allow you to connect the cable directly instead of using an antenna. There is nothing to worry in case you find that your TV doesn’t have the required transformer. You can always buy one separately and have it installed.

Step 2

Hook up the cable TV box with the TV along with the coaxial cable that has been provided to you. Remember that if you have rented the cable TV box from your local cable TV service provider, they are supposed to provide you with the coaxial cable also. In case you have bought the cable TV box yourself, it might or might not come along with a packaged coaxial cable. You can easily buy a coaxial cable at your nearest supermarket in case your cable TV box package didn’t come with one.

Connect the cable to the output socket of your cable TV box and connect the other end of the cable to the input socket on the transformer on the backside of the television. Ensure that the connections are rightly done and that there are no lose connections.
