Short Version: Skip to the bold red at the bottom.
Long Version: Skip to the "Hey guys! I haven't posted a… Yada yada yada."
Hey guys! I haven't posted a topic in the longest time… So it's kind of convenient that I'm having a problem right now. Ironic, I know. Anywho, here's the deal. I got this new Xbox One, right? The new CoD: Advanced Warfare bundle, ya? It looked so beautiful and I literally shed a few tears when I opened that package and saw it so neatly wrapped up with all that Xbox equipment. It was such a beautiful sight… Anyways, I get over my initial awe and open that bad boy completely up and set it on that spot next to my TV where my old Halo 4 Xbox sat, and I discover a few things. Well, only one thing, actually. I feel kind of stupid for not thinking of it before, but I was too excited!
So apparently the Xbox One is too fancy for regular TV and it has to be connected to a "High Definition" TV, like it's too cool or something. Whatever. Anyway, I realized that my TV isn't HD, but I really don't want to get rid of it because it's a nice TV, great size, and it was FREE!
BUT! But, but, but! I saw that my Direct TV cable box has an HDMI port on it, so could I connect my Xbox One to that instead of directly to the TV? Sorry if this is a stupid question but I'm not that tech savvy...
I know this is kind of wordy for a simple question, but what can I say...
RED BOLD TEXT HERE THAT SAYS NOTHING IMPORTANT:
Does my Xbox One have to plugged directly into an HDMI port on the Television, or can I use my cable box? Or does it need to be plugged in at all?
