I've been working hard to find a Professional to assist you with your question, but sometimes finding the right Professional can take a little longer than expected.

I wonder whether you're ok with continuing to wait for an answer. If you are, please let me know and I will continue my search. If not, feel free to let me know and I will cancel this question for you.

Thank you!

Please type in the box below, then click on the "Send" button to send me your reply.

Please turn off both your TV and cable box.
Now get the HDMI cable and plug one into the back of the cable box on the HDMI socket.

Next get the other end and plug it into the back of the TV into the HDMI socket marked HDMI 1
Now turn on both the TV & cable box.
Pick up the TV remote and press the input or source button and select HDMI 1 and press the ok button on the remote.
Now you should see your cable TV picture.
Finally pick up your cable TV remote and select the channel that you want to watch.

A bonus is much appreciated thank you!
