cable i guess,,whats the difference,i,m in australia
TV Technician: Dan, Broadcast Engineer replied 8 months ago

Just checking to see what were using. You will need to place the recorder between the cable box and your TV. Depending on what type of output connections you have coming from the cable box, you will need to connect an output from the box to an input on the hdd recorder. From the hdd recorder you will connect the output to an input on the TV.
