Question about HP Media Center m7250n (ED842AA) PC Desktop

1 Answer

Can't find where to get the input from red/white/yellow cables

I'm trying to find where i can see the input from the red/white/yellow set of input cables to be able to play my PS3 with internet connection.

I'm trying to get my HP Media Center PC m7250n to show input from my PS3 because I can't find a way to hook it up directly to the monitor, and don't want a tv in my den, but still want internet connection and can't get that anywhere else in the house. so, I have the regular red/white/yellow audio/video input cable hooked to the front of my pc and it doesn't want to show me what's being inputted.

    i don't know. I don't think so

  • tulae101 Feb 16, 2009

    hmm, not quite. on the back same as on front there's a composite video input, and I searched tv on the help and support center, but all of the listed topics tell me "to get more help on the media center press start on the remote then go to settings > help." and i don't have a remote..

    the problem seems to be with media centre, as there is no way of changeing the input, the tv tuner normally has software of its own.

    if you have a look for that. then you should be able to select the composite video input...



    hope this helps

  • Richard Ray Feb 18, 2009

I have the 3 RCA red, yellow, white cables on back of dvd and to tv. Video only plays when I select video 1 under the input. When when I select video 3 only sound and no video. What else can I try?


Sounds like from the symptoms that you have plugged the white and red cables into AV3 input on the back of the Teleivsion and plugged the yellow cable into AV1 on the back of the Television.
Check the cables are all plugged into AV1 input ports on the back of the Television. Red and White go into the Audio inputs and Yellow goes in the video input. Also make sure you have not plugged cables into component inputs on television look for AV1 in on back of Television .

My dynex tv only shows channel not available message?


Okay- the three cables (red, white, and yellow) are called RCA plug connectors. They are commonly used to carry audio and video signals.
Plug them into your Xbox according to the color codes- red cable connector to the red socket (jacks); then white to white, and yellow to yellow.
Now connect these leads to the RCA input jacks in the back of your t.v. - maintaining the same color code connections (red to red; white to white, and yellow to yellow)
The RCA input jacks on your t.v. should be labeled with an input number, to distinguish itself from the other inputs, like HDMI, S-Video, and such.
After plugging in your Xbox to the wall outlet or surge strip, turn it on.
Turn your t.v. set on.
With the remote control that came with your t.v. set, open the menu bar, scroll to... and open the "External Output" menu.
You should see a list of [however many] inputs your particular t.v has. Scroll to the input number that the 3 RCA cables are attached to, and press that number as the default video screen.
Exit the prompts and your Xbox video screen should be displayed.

I have a dvd player drc212 that i have no


Hi Tana,

If your TV is supplied with a video input, you will need a set of Composite Baseband video cables commonly known as RCA cables (Yellow, Red, White).

See the last paragraph if your TV is not supplied with a video input.

You will connect the Yellow (Video) from the DVD's video output, to the Yellow (Video) input on the TV set; example is VIDEO 1 or AV1.
You will connect the Red (Right Audio) from the DVD's Red Audio output, to the Red (Right Audio) input on the TV set using the same input number as example above.
You will connect the White (Left Audio) from the DVD's White Audio output, to the White (Left Audio) input on the TV set using the same input number as example above.

Turn on DVD, and TV set. Select the proper input on the TV set using the input button (video, source, AV select, etc.)

If your TV set is not supplied with a video input only a coax cable input, you will need an RF Modulator which can be purchased at any Best Buy, Radio Shack, Wal-mart, etc. You will also need a small coax jumper (3 to 6 foot should do it), and a set of RCA cables (Yellow, Red, White) as described above. The RF Modulator comes with instructions on how to connect it. It has a coax input, RCA input and a coax output that will connect to your TV set.

I hope this helps. Cheers.

Hooking up a dvd


You want to hook up the cables to any of the VGA input sets. Red= right audio channel, White= left audio channel, Yellow= Video. Don't plug them into the sets that have Red, , Green, and blue inputs. Just the set with red, white and yellow. Now you won't get HD from this since it's not bluray or HD-DVD. Just be sure you select the corresponding input on the TV when you want to use the DVD player. For example, select input 1 from the on screen display if that's the one you plugged it into.

Setup


I went to 'S' video for that function and use the external audio inputs for L/R. This path is slightly superior for video but carries no audio signal.
Check to see if they both have it.

The yellow cable is normally a 'composite' video cable which carries video and sync info.
The red and white are pretty standard for audio with red=right and white=left.
