Component Inputs Dont Work Equally

Hi my name is Kelvin I have the philips 34PW9846 which has two component inputs. For some reason one of them takes 1080i and 480p and the other one only takes 480i, shouldn't they be equal in other words shouldn't both component inputs support the same resolution?. How come there like this? Is there anything i can do to fix theses component issues?

Re: Component Inputs Dont Work Equally

Are these the scart plugs your talking about? If it states by the input its for 480i and the other one says its for the 1080i and the 480p then theres no other way to switch it as the manufacturer went cheap with the inputs by not putting in a switching slector circuit. Sorry. good luck

Hi, we just got a GE Thompson TV 25gt506 from a friend because our HDTV blew up on us. What I need to know is what do I need to either buy or do to be able to hook up my dvd player? There are no RCA...

If there are no RCA inputs, try component 9(YUV)inputs.
If there are no YUV inputs, you may need a SCART lead.
If there are no SCART inputs, then the sure way is to go
through a VCR which can connect back to the aerial input
of your telly.

I want to use my philips 29 PT8321as a monitor for my laptop

I think you need a VGA to Component Video Converter. You will need a VGA to VGA cable as well as the Component video cable and the converter box. One converter box:

You can check your video output specs: if your video driver can split the VGA signal into the different video components, then you just would need the component video to VGA adapter. (This is usually limited to working with projectors unless you have a higher-end stand alone graphics card.)

I hope this helps.

How to connect acer laptop to philips tv to use tv as monitor

If your TV has a VGA input you can connect the laptop using a standard monitor cable. If the TV has component video inputs, you can get an adapter cable with a VGA plug on one end and the appropriate RCA plugs on the other.

Without these inputs, you can't connect the laptop directly. You will need a converter to switch from the computer's VGA output to a standard video signal to feed to the TV. Here is a website with a sample converter. (I don't know this site. It's just one I picked from a Google search as an example.)

Is this TV HD capable?

This is not an HDTV. However, that does not mean you cannot use it to view the HD channels with DirecTV, you just wont be able to view them in hi-def. Use the component inputs from the directv tuner and plug those into the proper component inputs of your JVC. Once you see the DirecTV picture on the screen, go into menu... setup (with the directTV remote) and make sure that the only resolution checked is 480i. DirecTV with 'downconvert' those cannels to standard def, and they will still look pretty good though the component connection...

... now, in answer to your next question: "What exactly do I need to view HDTV with DirecTV?"...

1. A television that will accept 720p or 1080i signals.
2. A DirecTV HD Tuner.
3. Any DirecTV service BUT you must purchase the HD pack so that they will 'unlock' the HD channels
4. The proper cables to hook in between your DirecTV HD receiver and your HD-capable TV/Monitor. You may use either HDMI or component video cables, so long as your TV will accept them. Tune your TV input accordingly. When using component video cables, you must also run a separate cable(s) for audio...

Take care,

ps. DirecTV HD tuners do not have an RF 'out'. ("coaxial or ch3/4 connection")

CVI connection

On a Philips TV the only way I know to switch to any of the inputs is by scanning using channel up or down. This model is capabable of 480P input only at the CVI/Component input. This is not a HD television. It is only a EDTV (enhanced definition) if you try and input anything iver 480P IE: 720p or 1080i, the double image and/or lines is what you will get.

There is a switching, flat pack type, IC that needs to be changed. It is located on the input board of this TV set. You will need special surface mounted component tools to remove this IC and to replace it with a new one. If you have no repair experience, working with surface mounted components, play it safe and that the set to a repair shop or call someone in. Good Luck
