DCX3510-M: Video Connection Options

« Go Back



What type of video connections are available on the DCX3510-M set-top?


The DCX set-top offers several different video connection options.

  • Component video, HDMI, and IEEE-1394 allow you to view both High Definition and Standard Definition TV programming.
  • Composite video, S-Video, and RF coaxial connections allows  to view only Standard-Definition TV programming. HD programming will be down-converted to SD format for SD outputs.

To determine whether the TV features component video, HDMI, IEEE-1394, S-Video, or composite video, check the manual supplied with the TV.

Use the guidelines below to determine the best video connection for the home entertainment system.

NOTE: Only (1) video connection to the TV is required. HD video can only be viewed with HDMI, IEEE-1394, or component video connections.


HDMI or IEEE-1394 - HDTV and SDTV

HDMI and IEEE-1394 offer higher quality HD video than component video.

If the TV has an HDMI input, this is for both audio and video. Connect a Standard HDMI cable to the TV and to the HDMI connector on the DCX set-top.

HDMI and IEEE-1394 outputs provide video and audio, so no separate audio connections are required if planning to use the TV?s speakers as the primary audio source.

NOTE: On screen graphics will not be displayed when using the IEEE-1394 connection on the rear panel of the DCX set-top.

If the TV has a DVI input, connect a HDMI-to-DVI adapter or cable to the HDMI out connector on the DCX set-top and the DVI HDTV connector on the TV.

NOTE: DVI does not provide audio. A separate audio connection must be made.


Component video (YPbPr) ? HDTV and SDTV

The YPbPr connectors on the DCX set-top provide HDTV and SDTV component video.

NOTE: Component video does not provide audio. A separate audio connection must be made.

Composite Video ? SDTV

If an S-Video input is not available on the TV, use the composite video (video) connection.

NOTE: Composite video does not provide audio. A separate audio connection must be made.
