Hi , I`m Jack
Perhaps I can help you with this problem

Many ways o hookup this tv to a cable box .

Can you give me the cable box name and/or model and I`ll tell you the best way ?

Customer: replied 6 months ago.
The box is from Cablevision. I do not have it here, now.
Expert:  Jack replied 6 months ago.

O.k then is it a HD cable box or standard definition SD

Expert:  Jack replied 6 months ago.

There are 4 ways of connecting this tv to a cable box , it could be a single HDMI cable if the cable box is HD (high definition) then component rca type cables which is also hd ,then composite (SD) and finally with a coaxial cable in the TV's cable terminal just like an old vcr

The best would really be HDMI but if your cable box is not HD then that leaves you with composite red/white /yellow cables or coaxial

That company is called "cablevision " ?
