Question about RCA 27F530T 27" TV
I have a 27F530T and an Xbox 360. When I plug the Xbox into the TV's YPbPr ports, all I get is a box on the TV saying "Unusable Signal," but the sound still works. I know that the problem is not with the cables or the console, because I have hooked the Xbox into the YPbPr on my Samsung TV with no problems, but the RCA TV is giving me no picture at all. I have also tried fooling with the Xbox resolution settings to no avail. I would try plugging the Xbox into the TV using the single yellow plug as opposed to the YPbPr inputs, but I use a monster Xbox cable that has no yellow plug, only the YPbPr (a real pity). Thanks.
Hi there. I might add my 2 cents here. On the back of the TV, video2 is both composite, component and audio jacks, all at the same input. So you say 'the screen says CVideo2 instead of just Video2, so I believe the TV recognizes the difference'. You're right. Now, are you sure the component cable you're using on the xbox is good ? You could try to connect only the green connector of the component cable to the yellow composite RCA video input of the Video2 input, and see if it displays any video. Else, i'd try to reset the xbox 360 video settings of the dashboard to defaults; here's intructions on how to do it : To reset the display settings of the Xbox 360 console to the default settings, remove any discs from the disc tray. Turn the console off and turn it back on. As the console starts, press and hold the Y button, and then pull the right trigger at the same time. The Xbox Dashboard resets the display settings to the default settings, and then automatically restarts the console. Note If you are using an Xbox 360 Wireless Controller, turn the console on by using the Xbox Guide button on the controller. Make sure that you use the player 1 controller when you do this. The player 1 controller will have the upper-left quadrant light illuminated. Hope that helps a bit. Thanks, cheebster.

Tacz, What video input# on the back of the TV is your component video?? Are you sure the TV is set to look at that video input#??? You may be looking at one of the composite video inputs as far as the TV is concerned and with nothing plugged in to that input the TV would naturally give the error message you indicated. Let me know.. Bill
