Time Warner digital. I need to know how its installed

I will be switching over to digital cable soon and I want to know if they use the same physical cable or do they have to install new? Also, I am getting a new TV with an HD tuner. Is there any other separate box they give you or will I be able to just plug right into the TV?

You will need the set-top box to "descramble" the signal, and connect it to your new HDTV via a HDMI cable.

Well, crap. Is there much to it? Know where I could get a picture of it? I'm trying to figure out if I could mount it on the wall out of sight behind the TV. Its a 46" that I plan to mount over the fireplace. The only other component I plan to have around is the DVD player and cable modem. I know the modem will mount on the wall.

HDMI cables out of cable box and dvd player to your receiver. HDMI out from the receiver to the tv.

It's the same coax coming into your house that you hook to the cable box. The Time Warner cable boxes are large pieces of shit so doubtful you can mount it on the wall without it being seen. I think my HD DVR one from the is about 18"x12"x3".

Atlantic Blue '00 - '03 Cobra motor and TKO600, solid axle, 4.10s, full MM suspension, upper pulley and bolt-ons
Silver '01 Vette - D1 blown 400" LS stroker
Black '85 GT - bone stock except true dual exhaust

An HDMI cable need not be a lot thicker than the coax that Time Warner will run to the cable box, and you were going to have to run cable (preferably HDMI as well) from the DVD player to the TV anyway.
