FIOS HDTV Connections

by enigma1944 / February 25, 2010 9:26 PM PST

I currently have a 36" LCD HDTV connected thru a Brighthouse cable TV box with the required cables.

Next month I will be changing to Verizon FIOS TV with a new TV which is a Toshiba 55" model 55zv650u.

Do I need to purchase new cables for this transition or will the cables I currently use function with this new TV and FIOS.

First, you don't specify which cables & specific model cable box you are currently using. Second, it would be prudent for you to inquire of Verizon exactly which hardware you will be receiving upon the service change. Their FIOS technical support web site will have some of these details for certain.

That said, it's likely you will be using the same HDMI cable that you have now, unless you are using either component or DVI, hence my first question above ;).

everything are the same. Hence the old cable will do.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
