A word about High Definition:
The TVG will only support the single video cable or S-video cable.  Component video (red, green and blue video) connections are not supported by the TVG 201 or TVG 301.  This connection is most commonly used with HDTV devices.  Using the TVG with High Definition devices is a bit complicated. 

Most Satellite/Cable receivers do not pass through closed-captions when using the HD connections.  Component and HDMI connections have been tested.  The TVG 201 and TVG 301 set-top boxes cannot work unless it can read the captions.

A workaround would be to connect the composite (RCA) video cable to the set-top box and have the digital audio connections pass through the TVG to the TV or surround sound receiver.  TVG could read the captions and mute the digital audio, but it would not display the modified captions.  Not ideal, but the best that is available right now.

See the TVG DVD Player for the high-quality red, green and blue (progressive scan) video connection.  Progressive Scan mode will not display the replacement captions, but will mute the sound.
