Sorry i am not an expert and I hope I posted on the right forum :

I have an HD capable TV setup with a motorola DCT5100 , I currently added an external DVD player and need to know if I can hook up an HDMI cable to the box. There are two USB ports and two IEEE 1394 connection , but I do not see any HDMI adapter on the motorola box.
Any Ideas ??:confused:

You should hook the dvd player's HDMI cable to the tv. If you have a receiver with surround set up, hook an optical cable directly to the receiver from the dvd player.

The set top boxes are not used for passing thru external components.
