How to Hook Up an Emerson TV to a Cable Box

By Jason Taetsch

Hook up your Emerson TV to your cable set-top box to begin enjoying your cable programming. The cable box transforms the signal from your cable service so it can be displayed on the screen of your TV. Use an HDMI cable to make the connection between the two devices. The HDMI cable transfers both sound and picture so you won't have to deal with a tangle of wires behind your new TV.

Things You'll Need

  • HDMI cable

Step 1

Locate the "HDMI" input on the rear of the Emerson TV.

Step 2

Insert one side of the HDMI cable into the port on the Emerson TV.

Step 3

Connect the other side of the cable to the "HDMI" port on the back panel of the cable set-top box. Turn on the cable box and the TV.

Step 4

Press the "Input" button on the Emerson's remote control until the image from the cable box appears on your screen.
