Connecting your equipment 03
Connecting a satellite/cable
or other set-top box
Satellite and cable receivers, and terrestrial digital TV
tuners are all examples of so-called ‘set-top boxes’.
1Connect a set of audio/video outputs on the set-
top box component to the TV/SAT AUDIO and VIDEO
inputs on this receiver.
• Use a stereo RCA phono cable for the audio
connection and a standard RCA video or S-video
cable for the video connection.
About the video converter
on page 16 if you plan
to use a different type of video cable than you used to
connect your TV.
2 Connect an optical digital audio output from
your set-top box component to the DIGITAL 1 (TV/
SAT) input on this receiver.
• Use an optical cable for the connection.
• If your set-top box only has a coaxial digital output,
you can connect it to one of the coaxial inputs on this
receiver using a coaxial digital audio cable. When
you set up the receiver you’ll need to tell the receiver
which input you connected the set-top box to (see
Assigning the digital inputs
on page 81).
•If your satellite/cable receiver doesn’t have a digital
audio output, omit step
• If you’ve already connected your TV to the
inputs above, simply choose another input. However,
you’ll need to tell the receiver which input you
connected the set-top box to (see
on page 81).
