Xbox 360 owners can choose to connect their console to their television or directly to their Time Warner set-top box. Connecting the game console can be achieved by way of composite or HDMI cables. Time Warner's digital cable set-top boxes are equipped with one HDMI port, so Xbox 360 owners who also have an HDTV will have to choose which will be connected to the set-top box via HDMI. If you play more Xbox 360 games than you watch HD television programming, using HDMI to connect the Xbox 360 makes the most sense; otherwise, use composite cables from your console to the set-top box and HDMI to connect the digital cable box to your TV.

  1. 1

    Set the Xbox 360 near the set-top box. Leave at least 2 inches space above the side of the console above the disc tray. Proper ventilation is vital to the Xbox 360.

  2. 2

    Plug the power supply adaptor into the power input on the Xbox 360's rear panel. Plug the power cord into the adaptor and plug it into the grounded wall socket.

  3. 3

    Plug the AV composite jack into the slot in the centre of the rear panel of the Xbox 360. Plug the composite leads on the opposite end of the cable into the inputs on the Time Warner cable set-top box. Match the input colours with the colours of the inputs for guidance.

  4. 4

    Plug the HDMI cable into the outlet located directly under the AV composite port. Route the HDMI cable to the panel of input ports on the television and plug it in to the appropriate input.
