Red/white is analog audio. Yellow is composite video. Component video is usually color-coded red/green/blue.
You *need* to upgrade your cable. To the extent that you watch TV, you have will have pretty much wasted the money you spent on this TV otherwise, since everything will look subjectively worse than it did on your old analog TV.
This is a hi-def TV. It wants hi-def sources. Failing that, it at least wants standard-def sources to be fed to it at the highest possible quality. If your cable box has onlu composite and RF outputs, you can't give it what it wants.
Meanwhile, as an exercise, connect the cable directly to the TV without using the box at all. Run a channel scan. Look for channels with decimal points in their numbers, and for channels with numbers higher than 99. You may find you are getting your local HD OTA programming via your standard cable, tuned by your TV's QAM tuner. (This is very common.)
As long as you are using this cable box, at least use the AV outputs instead of the "connect to the TV's RF input and tune the TV to Channel 4" routine, which is how I connected my first VCR to my first color TV -- back in 1979.
