Help install Playstation 4

Hi I am trying to install Playstation 4 and am confused.

I am on the first step of connecting the power (completed) and connecting the HDMI cable to the TV. The problem is with the HDMI cable. I have ATT Uverse and right now the box from ATT is connected to the TV by HDMI cable. The TV has one port for HDMI. The ATT box has one port for HDMI. Those two are connected and thus I do not understand what to plug the playstation 4s HDMI port into?

Thank you.

    Each HDMI port can only support one device. If your TV only has one single HDMI connector, you will not be able to have both the cable box and the PS4 hooked up at the same time. The only thing you will be able to do is unplug one when you want to use the other. Most modern TVs come with 3,4, and even more HDMI ports to support multiple devices.

  • Thanks for the quick reply. Dang.

  • And I thought had a modern TV just to have HDMI and flat screen :p
