Question about Samsung UN40HU6950 40 Inch Ultra Smart

1 Answer

I can't get audio to work on my Samsung UN40HU6950F UHD TV HDMI 1 input using the Time Warner Cable Cisco 4742HDC cable box.

When I hook up the HDMI cable from the Tiime Warner Cable Cisco 4742HDC box to the Samsung UN40HU6950F Samsung HDMI 1 input I get a beautiful picture but no audio. Same with HDMI 2 and 4. But I do get audio and video on the HDMI 3 input. When I connect the TV to the bedroom Time Waner Motorola DCX3510M DVR box, all 4 of the HDMI inputs on the Samsung TV work. The TWC tech says it is a problem with the TV and insisted on connecting using the component inputs. I told him that wasn't acceptable since the component inputs are analog, not digital. When I called the Samsung tech, they said it was a TWC problem. Any idea why the TWC box won't work on 3 of the 4 HDMI inputs on the Samsung UN40HU6950F?

If all 4 inputs work with another input source(i.e. your Motorola box) it indicates the issue is with the TWC input source. Also check your HDMI cable to be sure it is in good condition & properly plugged in on both ends.

My 32 incn Hisense Roku tv can I hook it up to my time warner cable instead of wireless connection


Yes, you can. You would need to hook the cable box up to the tv using an HDMI cable for it to work. Hope it helped!

Picture in picture operation & connection to dvd player


Now--first--connect the DVR cable box HDMI output to the HDTV HDMI input (use the lowest numbered one e.g. HDMI 1) for this connection. Use a standard (not Monster brand) HDMI cable for this connection. Then turn on the TV, turn on the cable box and switch the TV to the HDMI input. A picture should come on. You may even hear the audio on the TV speakers. If so, that is OK.

Then--connect the component video output of the DVD HT to the TV component 1 input. Use a three wire component video cable with red, blue and green connectors on each end. Connect color to color on both ends. Then turn on the DVD, put a DVD in the player and start it running. Switch the TV to the component input and it should show a pix. The audio will come from the DVD player speakers.

If your DVD player does have an HDMI output, you can use it and just connect as above to the second TV HDMI input.

To get audio from the cable box out of the DVD player speakers, you will need to connect an audio cable from the cable box go the HT amplifier. Use a set of RCA patch cables and go from the analog audio output of the cable box to the rear panel audio inputs of the DVD player. The owners manual for this unit will give directions on using this input. Since your HT unit does not have any other inputs, you will not be able to get Dolby Digital audio.

Hope this gives you food for thought. If so, and you have more questions, just come back in with a follow up.

Good luck. Remember, the owners manuals all have hook up connections diagrams. Sometimes they will help.

How to hook up a cable remote to a Samsung cable box?


    • 1 Examine the back of the your cable box and the back of your Samsung HDTV. Note which cable jacks are of an identical size and color. Those are the ones that can be used to connect the two devices. Samsung HDTVs cluster all the jacks in a single panel near the power cord.
    • 2 Look at the square rectangular boxes labeled "HDMI In." These are for high-definition multimedia interface cables--combination A/V cables that provide the highest possible image and sound clarity. Look at the back of your cable box for an identical jack labeled "HDMI Out." If you see one, connect the two jacks using an HDMI cable. If you don't, you need to use another set of cables to hook up your cable box.
    • Sponsored Links
    • 3 Check for a series of three round jacks labeled "Component In" and color coded in red, green and blue. These are component video jacks, which provide a good HD picture, but not as good as HDMI. If your cable box has an identical set of "Out" jacks, use them to connect the two components.
    • 4 Look for a pair of red and white jacks (possibly connected to a yellow one). These are audio RCA jacks. If you're using component video cables to hook up your cable box, you will need to hook these two up as well: Component video cables don't provide sound. Any cable box that uses component video cables should also have "Out" jacks for RCA audio cables.
    • 5 Find the raised circular jack with a pinhole in the center of a milky white plastic interior. This is the coaxial jack. Samsung HDTVs label them "Ant In." Every cable box should have a corresponding jack labeled "Out" or "Ant Out." If none of the other cable jacks on the cable box match, use a length of coaxial cable to connect the TV to the cable box through these two jacks. You can also use this connection to hook the TV directly to the wall cable.
    • 6 Turn on your TV and cable box, and set the TV to the input jack connected to the cable box. You can do this by pushing the Menu button on the remote, scrolling down to the "Input" option and pushing "Enter." That will let you cycle through the various input options, labeled by cable type (HDMI, component video). Press "Enter" again when you reach the right component, then exit the menu. You should now be able to watch TV as normal.

Got the digital set up box from Time Warner Cable but they did not include hook-up instructions.


If you have an HDTV, you can hookup HDMI cable from set-top-box to the HDTV's HDMI input and select that input on the TV using your remote. If you have analog TV, you can hookup using RCA cables (yellow to yellow, white to white). You could also call Time-Warner for assistance.

I have Time Warner cable. I have a Symphonic SR90VE vcr/dvd that I have hooked up to the main TV. The cable box services a second tv in another room. I can't seem to get the main tv and the vcr/dvd player...


Cable goes to vcr cable INPUT, then run cables from vcr OUPUT to tv INPUT or AV.

Then put tv on input or av channel or channel 4 and use put the vcr on the channel you want to record.

I have a samsung tv and samsung blu ray i have my dvr in hdmi 1 and my blu ray in hdmi 2. when i first turn on my tv and blu ray it works fine but if i switch to cable the back to blu ray it says no...


First, HDMI is not a perfect hook-up solution. Cable box connections via HDMI are notorious for being problematic. The best thing you can do is contact Samsung and get the latest firmware for your TV.
Samsung Customer Care: 1-800-Samsung (1-800-726-7864). If this does not resolve the issue, connect the cable box using Component cables instead of the HDMI. Component cables are HD also. I hope this was of some assistance.

When I connect HDMI from a Time Warner DVR to my Vizio thru a DVI/HDMI adapter, I get no sound. I can only get sound if I use Component input (RGB+ audio R&L). Is this a DVR issue or a Vizio issue?


Use the Time Warner remote and hit the settings button twice. Scroll down to "audio: digital out" and select HDMI. That solved it for me.

The only issue I have now is that I also have component sound outputs going from the cable box to a receiver. When I turn off the TV while the HDMI cable is hooked up to both the box and the tv the sound goes out to the receiver...
