How to Hook Up a Time Warner Cable Box to an HDMI TV

By James Clark

Time Warner's cable television service includes a receiver box for connecting to your high definition television (HDTV). On TV sets equipped with an HDMI (high definition media interface) port, the Time Warner cable box connects with a standard HDMI cable. The HDMI cable delivers an all-digital signal with video and audio through one connection. The plug on each end of the cable contains 19 metal contacts that send the high-definition digital video signal as well as eight distinct channels of audio.
