Overview of cable types

Cables can be purchased from most stores that sell audio/
video devices. Before purchasing any cables, be sure of
connector types required by your devices and the length of
each cable.
Coaxial (F-type) cable
Coaxial (F-type) cable is used for connecting your antenna,
cable TV service, and/or cable converter box to the ANT/
CABLE input on your TV.
Standard A/V cables (red/white/yellow)
Standard A/V cables (composite video) usually come in sets
of three, and are for use with video devices with analog audio
and composite video output. These cables (and the related
inputs on your TV) are typically color-coded according to
use: yellow for video, red for stereo right audio, and white for
stereo left (or mono) audio.
S-video cable
S-video cable is for use with video devices with S-video
output. Separate audio cables are required for a complete
connection.
Note: An S-video cable provides better picture performance
than a composite video cable. If you connect an S-video cable,
be sure to disconnect the standard (composite) video cable or
the picture performance will be unacceptable.
Component video cables (red/green/blue)
Component video cables come in sets of three and are for
use with video devices with component video output.
(ColorStream
is Toshiba's brand of component video.) These
®
cables are typically color-coded red, green, and blue. Separate
audio cables are required for a complete connection.
Note: Component video cables provide better picture
performance than a standard (composite) video or S-video
cable.

Chapter 2: Connecting your TV
HDMI™ cable (with HDMI Logo "
HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface) cable is for
use with devices with an HDMI output. An HDMI cable
delivers digital audio and video in its native format. This
cable carries both video and audio information; therefore,
separate audio cables are not required for a complete HDMI
device connection ( page 17 and page 19).
Note: HDMI cable provides better picture performance than a
standard (composite) video or S-video cable.
Optical audio cable
Optical audio cable is for connecting receivers with Dolby
Digital or PCM (pulse-code modulation) optical audio input
to the TV's DIGITAL AUDIO OUT terminal ( page 18).
Analog RGB (15-pin) computer cable
Analog RGB (15-pin) computer cable is for connecting a PC
to the TV's PC IN terminal ( page 18).
