These are just EMI/RFI shields that one places around the power cord and video and audio connection cables. They are ideal for component video and any form of analog video/analog audio cables, however in a digital world with HDMI they are hardly used since the EMI/RFI interference would need to be extreme to change the digital bitstream. You would notice major digital artifacts if the EMI/RFI interference was causing a problem with HDMI. They are never needed on optical audio cables since fiber is 100% immune to EMI/RFI interference.

They are not magnets, per se. They are called ferrite beads or cores.

At first I thought he was asking about the old magnets that come with CRTS to align the picture.

I put mine on the power cord that came with the TV. That's what the instructions said to do. I guess maybe they aren't useful anyway.
