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?

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

480p to 1080i


Your TV should automatically switch to 1080i if the source input is in 1080i format. Also, since your TV does not have HDMI, you must use the component 1 or 2 inputs (using component cables) for 1080i source material. You cannot get 1080i from composite or s-video inputs. You should be able to switch to the component inputs using the remote or the front control panel using TV/Video button.

Look to see if those inputs in the on screen menu show or not---locked out maybe? Someone using just the other inputs may have disabled them.

I want to hook a Wii up to an older tv that has co-axial, s-video and component inputs. Which can be done and which is best?


Hi,

The best connection that you can use is the Component Inputs (Red/Blue/Green Cables) since the picture that is transmitted by the component cable is a High Definision Picture. Remember that if you will use the Component Cable you must select the Component Input using the original Remote of the TV. Component Cables only generates Video Signal.

Thanks for using Fixya.

For some reason, the component video input on my Sony Wega KE-42TS2U plasma HDTV will not work. Component video is on video 3. All other inputs work fine (coaxial, standard RCA inputs, and the digital...


Yes you need a new Q board most likely, if you audio fails after a while and your other inputs do as well then for sure you need a new Q board. It may be B board but I highly doubt. Atleast with my experiences with the KE-42TS2U.

I Have just bought this reviever (Yamaha Rx-v365)and im just trying to work out how to best connect all my devises. I have Tivo, Lg DVD player with both yellow, red white cables and blue green red cable...


Hi, firstly some terminology:
yellow cable - video composite (worst quality)
white/red - stereo analog audio
blue/green/red - video component (second best quality after HDMI)

You are correct that RX-V365 doesn't do audio over HDMI. Moreover it also doesn't do any video processing, which means composite video input will go only to composite video output (and not to component); compoment input only to component output and HDMI input only to HDMI output.

If you have more devices of same video output (in your example the component blue/green/red), you can connect them to TV via the receiver. But if only one device of same video output, you can connect it directly to TV. There is no reason to go through your receiver for video.

For audio, you can use either the analog stereo white/red cables (rx365 has 5 such inputs) or better use digital SPDIF connection, which is slightly better quality and more importantly supports 5.1 sound. There are 2 types - coaxial (orange RCA plug, can use basic rca cable) and optical (square black connector). Receiver has 1x coax spdif input and 2x optical spdif inputs. Look at your other equipment to decide which cable to use.

For the analog audio inputs, I think you can assign it either to composite video or component video. So for DVD audio white/red plugs, you can choose if either Video composite yellow plug named DVD will be used, or component blue/green/red named DVD will be used.

DVD's not playing in color


sounds like the problem is the TV . your tv have to different inputs , COMPONENT is for the separate color , BLUE , RED , GREEN this is for better video quality , if your DVD doesnt have this OUTPUT feature , then maybe the YELLOW (VIDEO) , RED & WHITE ( AUDIO ) thats coming out from your DVD player is connected to the COMPONENT input of your TV , GETTING the B&W effect. it should be connected to the VIDEO input of your TV ( yellow , red , white ) hope this is helpful AJ

Sound problem


The Red/Green/Blue component connection only carries video. You will also need to connect the separate Red/White audio connectors to the audio inputs on the TV adjacent to the component input.

The yellow composite connection is not needed.

My hd tv


to view anything in High definition you have to connect to your tv using either the DVI, Component or HDMI inputs. Your cam or anything you want to view HD videos from will need to have a lead to suit these inputs, the component lead will consist of an input from camera to five seperate coloured leads or an oblong DVI connector or HDMI which looks similair to a usb connector. You will need then on your tv to select the resolution of 720P or 1080I to view the HD picture.

Component Video inputs do not work


I started back in the day of tubes. A family would have one set and it would be a 19" black and white. There are different resolutions now. The components probably do work, but, they don't pass the 480i signal. The satelite converter's analog signal needs to be set to 480p and the DVD needs to be set to progressive if it does have that setting. If the DVD is not a progressive scan DVD, then, the only inputs that it will show on is the analog signal. Some of the dish converters have a switch on the face for changing the resolution. If yours doesn't then put it in an analog source and go to the menu and change it there. Then move it to the component input. Hope this helps.
