Unfortunately, the Westinghouse monitor has a bunch of inputs available, but completely lacks the audio output connection you need that would make life simple. Your Philips HTS only a single auxiliary audio input, but it does offer video and audio output connections to a monitor.

About the only solution I see available is to buy an A/V selector switch (available from Radio Shack and probably stores like Best Buy). Run the audio connections from the HD receiver and XBox through it, and send the output from the selector switch to the auxiliary audio input on the HTS6500. (You could use RCA Y-adapters to connect the audio to the monitor as well as to the selector switch if you really want to.) Send the video from these sources directly to the monitor.

You would need to select the source on the monitor, A/V switch and HTS to get the result you want, but it would be workable. (Now, why didn't Westinghouse simply include a set of audio output jacks with all those sources available?)

If this solution has gotten you going, please take a moment to rate it. And thanks for asking here!

Where to hook up white/yellow input wires from receiver to panasonic TC-P50S2. HAVE audio no video feed on tv


Usually DVD players have either composite or component video out (unless you are using HDMI connections). That means you need three or five RCA plugs connected between the devices.

The usual pattern when using a receiver would be to connect the Red/White RCA cables between the receiver and the DVD player audio out. Then connect the Yellow (composite) or Red, Green, and Blue (Pb, Pr, Y component) video cables between the TV and the DVD player. Make sure the connections match at each end; with component video, it can be easy to mix them up. Not all receivers have composite or component video outputs available to the TV. The Composite video will go to the yellow connector at Video In 1 on the TV. The Component video would go to Component In 1 or 2.

Since you don't mention the model of the receiver or how that is connected to the TV, I can't be sure why you have no video. If you have an HDMI connection between the TV and the receiver, the receiver won't convert the signal from composite/component video to HDMI.

The alternative method of connecting everything would be to connect the DVD player to the TV (both the audio and video), then use the optical digital audio connection from the TV to the receiver or to a digital to analog audio converter and then to the receiver.

Please add a comment with the rest of your A/V equipment for a more solution.

I hope this helps.

Could you tell me the steps to hook up my vcr & my dvd players to my tv. And what cables and or devices I need to accomplish this task?


It will depend on the devices. Most VCRs will have composite and S-video outputs. For this you will need either a composite audio/video cable (3 RCA plugs on each end: yellow (video) and red and white (audio)) or an S-video cable and a separate audio cable. The DVD player will probably have component video or HDMI outputs, depending on its age. The component video requires a 3 plug RCA video cable (red, green, blue) and a 2 plug RCA audio cable (red and white). Some DVD players have composite outputs as well. However, this limits you to an SD video output and isn't recommended, unless your TV doesn't have any HD inputs.

If your TV has one each of the appropriate input ports or 2 composite video ports, you just need those cables, assuming you have no other devices that have filled the inputs. Always connect the devices with the TV and the A/V components off. Match the color of the plug to the port. If you mix up the colors on component video cable, you may get a black&white picture. Some newer TVs use an adapter dongle to convert composite or component video to single port on the input board. Again match the colors at the dongle and then plug in the adapter. If your TV has shared composite and component signals, use the HDMI port output on the DVD player, if possible, or get a Audio/Video switch, like this: http://www.amazon.com/Panlong-Switcher-Composite-Selector-Consoles/dp/B00KXVBB3Q/ref=sr_1_24?s=audio-video-accessories&ie=UTF8&qid=1440632814&sr=1-24 .

Please add a comment with the make and model of your specific TV, VCR and DVD player. I hope this helps.

I have a HP m7570n. How do I use a flat screen tv as a monitor


This depends on the TV's available inputs. The Pavilion m7570n has only a VGA output in the standard configuration.

Thus if the TV has a VGA port, turn off the computer and the TV. Then connect a standard VGA (RGB or D-sub 15-pin) m/m cable between the computer and the TV. To use the TV speakers, connect a 3.5 mm audio patch cable between the computers Line-out (green speaker port) to the VGA audio in. Turn on the TV and set the input to VGA (with the Source or Input button on the remote or the TV). Then turn on the computer. Windows XP should find the correct resolution to work with the TV. (If you turn on the TV after turning on the computer, you may get an unsupported signal. Press Ctrl-Alt-Del twice to restart the computer.) If it doesn't work, you may need to connect a different monitor and set the computer to a low resolution before connecting the TV and the computer.

If the TV only has composite or component video inputs, you will need a VGA to video converter (http://www.svideo.com/pctocomponent.html for example). A VGA to component cable will not work; those are for projectors that read an RGB input. TVs interpret YPbPr.

If you have added a video graphics card, you may have an HDMI and/or DVI port(s) on the card. In that case, check the specs of the TV. Some TVs will support HDMI or DVI-HDMI inputs from a computer. Others will not (since computer video signals are not the same as the signal from a set-top box). If you use a DVI-HDMI connector, make sure to use the HDMI port labeled for DVI and connect the audio cable as with the VGA connection. If you use an HDMI connection, you may need to set the sound properties to that of the HDMI port. (Find the control panel item for sound (under Hardware) and then select Manage Audio Devices. Set the Playback properties. If it doesn't work, use an audio patch cable.) Some TVs have RCA audio inputs for the HDMI-DVI connector. In that case, you will need a female 3.5 mm to RCA M/M adapter (if you use a 3.5 mm patch cable). There is a similar device if you want to use an RCA audio cable. You may need to enable the video ports on the graphics card before swapping monitors.

Some video cards have a TV out. In that case, connect the appropriate connector (should come with the video card). Then connect to the component, composite or S-video input on the TV.

Again turn off the TV and the computer before making any connections.

You will probably need to provide your own cables for must of these connection options.

I hope this helps.

Hi i want to connect a tv to my optoma hd 66 projector


hi,
You can't be able to connect a tv to your projector, because it doesn't have a monitor out.
There is only one way. If the source is a DVD player then connect the its HDMI output to the projector and the component video out to the tv. You can't be able to get video out from the composite video output of your DVD player, when you are using HDMI. When plug the HDMI it will switch off the composite video out. The component video out remain ON whether you connect HDMI or not.
ok

The pecking order for output video to your monitor forbids a lower quality video (composite (Yellow) being up-ticked to anything higher (your component out) (Page23).

The wii would be visible on the Monitor Out composite output (Page 24) to the TV.
