Currently I have an X1 box and a slightly older Panasonic TV.
At this time I have a cable signal IN (from Comcast) and a cable signal OUT (going to TV).
I asked Comcast for the User Manual for the X1 so I could look up some (what I thought were) some pretty straight forward hookup paths for a possible DVR and a home 2 channel stereo. It turns out there is NO user manual for the X1 and I was eventually told to use the manual for the RNG150N. So looking at the most basic Hookup for Box to TV, it shows an HDMI. I tried that; it didn't work. In looking at the back of the ...150N, it shows a Coax IN but NO place for COAX (Cable) out. Interesting? I don't get that. (HOW in the world does the RNG150N get an antenna signal from it to the TV withput a Coax (cable) Out)? Some of the other hookups depicted in the Manual don't make much more sense. So what is the hookup to add a VCR to my current set up? Also for the real audiophiles in here; how do I hook up my Integrated Amp ( which only has RCA jacks) to my TV?. A straight Left/Right RCA to RCA doesn't work. Does anybody get any of this?
So the first thing I said was:
I have a X1 Box.
I have tried to run regualar audio cables from both the X1 Box and/or my TV to my Amp. They both produce a significant delay in the sound. So that doesn't work.
I did say DVR didn't I? I meant DVD. JUst a plain ole DVD player.
The place you highlighted doesn't help to show the different cables and connections.
If there are hook up charts showing cable types and cable runs to accomplish what I would liketo do, I'm fine with that. It's just that these days that info seems to be in the user manuals
I was specifically told by Comcast to use the manula for the RNG150N because they don't have one for the X1. I found the hookup indicated by that manual to be quite interesting in that it does NOT have a COAX OUT.
I am quite familiar with wiring diagrams and schematics. I see you are a retired Comcast guy; I am a retired electrical engineer. I just want the hookup alternatives for the BOX Comcast is providing to me and I am paying for. I'll talk to them. Thanks.
OK. I'm jist referring to it as an X1 box because Comcast told me that's what I have. They didn't give me any further model breakdown. I was tryin to avoid pulling it out of the wall to read the back.
Thanks for follow up.
I will have to get back with them to figure out specifically what I have and what I can do with it.
