i just got my 46" sam lcd but have not hooked it up yet, mainly due to the fact that our wall unit is not coming for 2-5 weeks. anyway, i am switching from directv to comcast cable. do i need a hdmi to hdmi or do i need a hdmi to dvi cable to go from my cable box to the tv?

Do you know the model of your cable box?? If it is a newer model, it will most likely have HDMI. A few of the older models still floating around have DVI, but should not be the case on a new install.
