How to Convert Coaxial Cable to HDMI (coax to hdmi)

coax to hdmi:The signal that moves between programming sources like a DVD player, a digital media player or a cable box to a TV set needs a specific cable that has been designed to read, construe, and pass the right signal. Coax, or coaxial cables had been a standard television format for long until High Definition Media Interface (HDMI) was designed for the modern high-definition televisions. One question that some of us want answers for is how we can convert our coaxial cable outputs to HDMI and connect them to the TVs in a case where a programming source does not have the right HDMI connection.

Since both the HDMI and the coaxial cables work off on various kinds of signal (the analog and digital for that matter), the only means of connecting a programming source that only contains the coaxial output to an HDMI input television is to convert the signal and change the plugs. We can only do this if we find a converter and connect it to all the plugs.

Here are the simple steps to converting a coaxial cable to HDMI :

  • The first thing we must do is to connect the coaxial cable to the adapter box of the signal. This can be done by attaching the coupler of the cable to the threaded jack that is located on the box. After that, it should then be turned on the clockwise side, just by hand.
  • The next step after that would be to connect the other end of the coax cable to an available signal box that is compatible with the coaxial cable’s other end. The compatible signal source for this matter could be the cable or satellite’s TV’s receiver box.
  • After successfully completing that process, the next thing we should do is to plug the HDMI cable into the adapter box. This should be done while the cable’s wider end is turned upward.
  • It can, however, be challenging if the computer monitor or the television set has more than one HDMI input. If this is the case, then the best thing to do is to identify the one that is used with the connection of the coaxial cable.
  • The next thing would be to plug the adapter as well as the television into a surge protector power strip. This kind of power strip can be easily connected to a wall outlet.

In summary, the process is quite simple if we first determine which between the two cables we need. One thing that we should remember throughout the entire connection process is to match the needled end of the cable to the right connection and then to secure the threaded jack. Similarly, the HDMI cable is also very easy to connect.

We should begin the process by plugging one cable to the adapter box, and the other one to the television set. It’s also imperative to note that the adapter itself would need an outside source of power.

This is what will help it in translating the analog signal {coax} to the digital signal {HDMI}. The AC power supply would help here.

These are the simple steps to converting a coaxial cable to an HDMI cable.
