Hooking up my cable–tv box. How’s it done?
My cable-tv box (Samsung DCB-S305G) brings digital pictures and sound to my living room. Well, it used to! Now I want to hook it up to my new Sony HT-SF1300 home-cinema system, my Sony RDR-HXD750B DVD-Recorder and to my new (arriving shortly) Sony KDL 32W4000 LCD Full-HD television.
The cable-tv provides a wide range of digital programmes, including some I pay a little extra for. The extra programmes normally have to be accessed via the cable-tv box, since they are not sent down the line like the others. They include BBC Prime and other English language channels.
The cable-tv box has two Scart connections and the RF (aerial) connection. It does not have an HDMI connection. My home cinema AV-receiver does not have Scart connections, only HDMI and an RF (aerial) input connection, which I believe is for radio broadcasts, but I may be wrong.
The DVD-Recorder has Scart connections and an HDMI output to the AV-receiver.
Question: which is the best way to hook this up to give the best possible picture and sound?
