Question about Vizio Televison & Video
The DVD is hooked directly to Component 1 using a 3 line connector (yellow, red, and white) It's looks correct according to the TV manufacturer's instruction book. It's set on the correct channel and I can see the movie however only in B&W. I've tried different movies to rule that out.
RCA cable connectors (red,white, yellow) are usually for an analog setup. You could still use these for "component" setup, but know the difference with color stamps as follows:
Component color stamps are "blue, green, red" ( blue is marked Pb, green is marked Y, red is marked Pr)
RCA color stamps your using are "red, white, yellow"
Here are the proper hook up method for "Component" using your "RCA" connectors:
On both the TV and DVD component setup:
Plug the red RCA fitting in the component port marked "Pr (red)
Plug the white RCA fitting in the component port marked "Pb (blue)
Plug the yellow RCA fitting in the component port marked "Y (green)
Be sure this setup is the same for the TV's component input ports, and the DVD's component output ports.
For optimum picture quality you may want to purchase component cables as the gage is thicker giving better impedance match resulting in better picture and sound quality.
