Please can you advise what lead I would need to connect my Ultis PV4 pc to my tv.
My tv has component inputs (yellow, red and white sockets) and a scart socket available, but I do not know what output lead from the pc is required.
Can you help?

Re: Connect my pc to my tv
To be able to attach a TV to a computer when the TV does not have a VGA input (blue jack with 15 pins), you will need a graphics card in your PC with the RCA (red/yellow/white) output jack. You can usually find these for pretty cheap, since not many people use them anymore. Alternatively, you can find a converter such as http://www.monoprice.com/products/product.asp?c_id=101&cp_id=10114&cs_id=1011407&p_id=4724&seq=1&format=2 which should work, although I have never used one before. Good luck!

Hello! Ok: I will guide yourself through "hook up" process. 1. connect your TV set to your VCR, using 3 wires RCA cable(Yellow, red, white) to "Video1" input, yellow only! The other 2(sound channels) connect to "home theater/DVD unit. Use "aux" input. 2. Connect your DVD video output. yellow or 3 colored( green, blue, red) component cables to your TV's Video 2 or "component 1" input. Now you'll be able to use your TV as a video monitor for your VCR and DVD. The sound will be handled by DVD/Home theater. In case your TV is a very modern, all you can get out is: direct digital sound stream. Your home theater must be equipped with coaxial(orange) input(looks like RCA plug) or optical input. Or both. You must use proper cables to connect TV to Home theater. sorry, but it requires some patience and thorough reading of user manuals. Otherwise, it's "level 1" difficulty. nothing you may damage, due to installation. Good luck, Feel free to ask for more help, if needed. thanks, Alex.
Use three RCA cables, yellow, white and red to connect DVD player to TV as shown in the diagram below. Connect yellow to yellow and white to white. Connect red to red. Select on the TV, the A/V input where the DVD is connected using the TV remote control. Power on TV and DVD, place a disc in tray of DVD player and press PLAY.
Connect cables: Connect yellow to yellow (dvd player to TV) Connect white to white (dvd player to TV) Power on DVD and TV and insert a DVD into the player, press PLAY. Use your TV remote to select the proper input: Your remote should have a button like INPUT SELECT or Video, keep pressing until you see the DVD players output.
The quickest thing you can try is to connect it to another TV and see if it works.
There are various methods for connecting the Wii to the TV. In the box you should have a component video lead with red, white & yellow connectors. These can be connected directly to the corresponding inputs on the TV or you can connect them to the SCART adaptor and then connect that to a SCART input on the TV. Try using the red, white & yellow leads directly if possible, just in case the scart converter is faulty. If you have more than one set of RWY connectors on your TV then make sure you are using the correct set (you might connect the yellow video to one set and accidentally connect the red & white audio to another set). If you are using the SCART input then try swapping to another input if possible.
Make sure the all the connections are fully pushed into the Wii and the TV.
The cable your refering too are called Component leads.
The red and white are for your audio and the remainder are the video. All you need to do is connect the component leads matching up all the colour in the correct ports then using your av/source button change the tv to component
You will still have to connect the red and white audio cable to the tv as well.
