    I have the same problem. I have a brand new Sharp Aquos 42' Flat Screen and an Xbox 360. Every 10 minutes or so while playing a black screen pops up for a few seconds and then goes away. This did not happen before I changed it to the 1080i setting. I am using the HD Component cables included with the Xbox. I have tried setting it to 720p to see if this help and it did not. Please Help!

Most TV's have problems doing 1080p over component. Dial the Xbox back to 1080i. Make sure the big switch on the Xbox AV cable is set to 'HDTV' not 'TV'(common problem) If the problem persists, try plugging into different hookups, use HDMI (if your console supports it) or buy one of the HDMI adaptors from PDP or MadCatz if your console doesnt. HDMI will reduce the clutter and will make 1080p a reality.

How should I connect a Sony Wega KF-50WE620 to an XBox360 ?


Since the TV accepts HD signals only via DVI and component inputs, the only logical way is to use the "Xbox 360 Component HD AV Cable" as show in the link below:

How to hook up your Xbox 360 or Xbox 360 to TV

The TV will not accept a VGA input. A cable converting HDMI to DVI would also require that you break out the L + R audio channels, too. The one I mentioned above does this all for you with no degradation in video signals.

How do you get your xbox 360 to play, on a 65'' mitubishi projection tv,its connected but nothing comes on screen when i put a movie in just a blank screen and no sound,if i'm on a channel,the channel...


Hello

The Xbox 360 connects to a TV using either

- COMPONENT (red blue green for video, red and white for audio

- COMPOSITE (yellow for video, red and white for audio)

- HDMI

So, if your TV is on a "Channel", it is not on the correct input to view the Xbox 360.

Check the Xbox and verify which cables it is using to connect to the TV. When you find this, follow the cable to the back of the TV and find the input selection. It should be listed as the type and a number (i.e. HDMI 2, COMPONENT 1).

Have the Xbox on. Use the TV remote and use either the INPUT or the MENU options to change the input to the input that matches the port that the Xbox is connected to.

This should make the Xbox work.

When you are done with the Xbox, use the INPUT or MENU to change back to the tuner to watch TV.

How do i hook my XBOX-360 up to this tv and get 1080i resolution? Thanks, Mike


You should be able to get 1080i with the Input/DVI port or the component video in ports of the TV. I believe the easiest option will be to set the XBox A/V switch to HDTV and use a component video cable (red, green, blue) from the XBox component out to the TV Component In. (with the audio out going to your TV or speaker system). Turn on the X-box and the My Xbox > System Settings. Then Console Settings > Display and chose the 1080i.

Set the TV Net Command (remote) and the Device settings for the input jack in use (component 1/2). Adjust the A/V menu for the Display before playing long.

Wen you change inputs, you will see a status screen for the settings for the TV input.

I hope this helps.

Cable TV blinks on and off when connected to my Onkyo receiver.


I have the same problem.  It only occurs with my HD DVR (HDMI cable), not my blue ray (HDMI cable), or my xbox and wii (component video).  Video and audio cutout is random and drives the family nuts.  I am desperate for a solution.

I have a samsung led tv and am trying to hook up a wii. The tv does not have component video - only hdmi and usb. How do I hook this up?


I've never heard of a TV not having component cables (the 5 plug cables: red, blue and green video cables, red and white audio cables). I've seen some newer ones without composite (3 cables: yellow video, red and white audio), but never component.

I find is hard to believe it has no component. I looked at some Samsung LED tv's this weekend, and although they lacked composite, they had component. Are you sure you mean component?

The Wii only comes with composite video cables, so you'll need to buy a component video cable for the Wii to hook it up if your TV has no composite inputs.

Component Cables for the Wii

TV's have inputs on the side and rear. If the TV truly has HDMI, USB and nothing else (which I find hard to believe), then you'll need a cheap home theather 5.1 receiver. Ifyou get a cheap one with HDMI out, it should have a few composite inputs on the backside. A cheap sony one can be had for sub $200. If you hook the Wii into the receiver via composite, and the receiver into the TV via HDMI, it will allow you to hook up and play the Wii (and it may upconvert it too, depending on the receiver).

Plays dvds on xbox 360 fine, but no picture for games/dashboard


already solved it. thanks. i couldn't see the xbox settings blade because of the blank screen so switched my component cable to the tv setting instead of the hdtv setting, then i could see the dashboard in non-hd and switched the resolution to 720p while simultaneously switching the component cable back to the hdtv setting. that worked.

Green screen via analog connections


check if your input settings in the RXV663 for the S-video and composite are correct. Both connections are about the worst possibilities for video signal. What might help is powering of all other equipment not used when using XBOX or VCR, really powering off, not leave in standby.

Does your TV support analogue inputs? Than use them for the XBOX and VCR to connect directly to your TV for video, sound can still be connected to the yamaha.

let me know if it works.

No Picture from Component Input #1 or #2 but do have audio via Surrond Sound


Simplest thing would be that your component cables are not HU'd correctly. Having them reversed would do this.
