How you connect your devices. depends on what available jacks the devices have. You will only use ONE method of connecting per device. The BEST is HDMI- so if you have an HDMI port on your device- that's all that is needed. If your device doesn't have HDMI, then the next best method to connect is COMPONENT VIDEO, the last best method is using AV cables. So you only use one method of connection per device.
