How to Set Up a Rogers Digital Box

A Rogers Digital Box converts high-definition television (HDTV) signals, allowing the viewer to display HDTV programming in many different picture formats. The box allows you to access the mode required for your individual high-definition television, regardless of make or model. For first time setup, the box will run an HDTV Setup Wizard that will give you step-by-step instructions on how to link your television with a compatible format from Rogers Cable, Inc.

Rogers Digital Box Setup Instructions

Step

Plug one end of the coaxial cable into the cable connection on your wall. Plug the other end into the “CABLE IN” connection on the HD box. The coaxial cable is usually white or tan in color with threaded metal ends containing a singular cable wire. Tighten the connections by turning the metal ends in a clockwise direction.

Step

Plug the component cable into the “HDTV OUT” connection on the back of your HD box. The cable will have three different colored sockets on each end. Match the colored sockets to the colored holes behind the box. Plug the colored sockets on the other end into the corresponding colored holes on the back of your HD television at the location labeled “VIDEO IN.”

Step

Plug the HDMI cable into the “HDMI OUTPUT” hole on your HD box and the other end into the “HDMI INPUT” connection on your HD television.

Step

Plug the audio cable into the “AUDIO OUT” connection on the HD box and the other end into the “AUDIO IN” connection on your HD television. The audio cables will have red and white sockets to correspond to the red and white holes into which they will be plugged. Please note that if you are using an HDMI cable, this audio cable is not required.

Step

Plug your digital box and television into an electrical outlet. Ensure that your digital box is powered off and your television is powered on.

Step

Simultaneously press the “Guide” and “Info” buttons located on the front panel of your digital box. The HDTV Setup Wizard will appear on your television screen. Press “A” on the digital box remote control to begin.

Step

Select “A” again for “Easy Setup” mode. Select “A” if you have a standard 4:3 television, or “B” for a 16:9 widescreen TV. Press the power button on the digital box to begin watching HD television.
