Question about Televison & Video

2 Answers

I have plenty of old TV's that have a standard cable input, but no AV input (The white and yellow plugs that modern TV's have). Do they make a converter that turns the yellow and white AV plugs into a cable wire so that I can plug it into the TV that I have. If so, is it cheaper than just getting a new TV?

These are not cross compatible an rca hook up is a base band signal basically raw data, and coax(cable line) is a frequency with a carrier best suggestion I have is to buy a vcr with a coax out put and rca input that way the vcr can pick up the video signal then remodulate it onto a channel frequency and send it to the tv

How do i wire red white and yellow rca to an xbox 1 av plug. my av plug has blaack white orange and green wires


In the old school standard AV: Red and White are usually audio channels (Red:Right - White:Left), Yellow is video.

Orange can be coax audio, (both L&R channels in one cable). Before digital (optical) came out, some receivers actually had a coax (orange) jack in the back. Radio Shack sells a splitter if necessary.

In higher resolution systems video is separated into three colored cables: RGB or Red, Green, Blue
called 'component' video. The green cable carries Yellow, the blue cable carries (PB) Blue and the red cable carries Red (PR). And with today's tech, the component signal is carried YCBCR as (digital video.) cf. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/YPbPr

Component 'wire colors' are there just to remind us. If your TV has "Component" input. Try green to green, white to yellow and black to red. Orange to audio (splitting L&R if necessary)..

Also, here is a PS3 link that might help: http://www.ps3hax.net/showthread.php?t=9238
Good luck !

When ever i plug in my video and audio cable the red white and yellow ones, into the back of my Toshiba 26CV100U TV i don't get the picture i only get the sound what should i do ?


The Red, White and Yellow (AV) cable is for composite video and stereo audio. The yellow cable is the video part of this, the red and white are the audio --
3 possible solutions for you:

1. Make sure you match up the color of the plugs with the sockets on your tv.
2. Make sure you're not using the Red, Green, Blue (RGB) input on your tv which uses similar plugs, but has a different color coding.
3. Make sure your tv input is set to the AV input. This is often controlled by the "TV/Video" button on your remote, and the AV input is often called "Video 2" or "3" depending on the model.

I have an archos 404. i have a dvr station as well. How do i get my movies from my archos to play on my tv?


The Archos 404 attaches to the TV using either a DVR Station or a special AV cable. The AV cable uses a special small audio-style mini plug on one end to the standard red, white and yellow composite video connectors on the other.The docking station can record from and playback to the TV. The DVR Station 5 uses S-Video and red/white RCA plugs for connection to the TV. Optionally you can use the yellow/red/white composite connections instead. Hook it up similarly to a VCR, input from the cable box to the input of the DVR Station and output of the DVR Station to the input of the TV.

How do i connect a playstation 3 to a philips tv


The PlayStation 3 (PS3) is a high-definition gaming console that supports both standard AV connections and high-resolution connections (such as HDMI). Most of the older Philips TVs come with a standard AV input. Newer, flat-panel Philips TVs include standard AV inputs and high-resolution inputs. To get the best video quality out of your PS3, using an HDMI connection is recommended if the option is available. The PS3 does not include an HDMI cable, only a standard AV cable

Standard AV
  • 1 Turn off the PS3.
  • 2 Connect the flat end of the PS3 AV cable into the "AV Multi Out" port on the back of the PS3.
  • 3 Connect the "red," "white" and "yellow" prongs on the opposite end of the PS3 AV cable into the corresponding "red," "white" and "yellow" AV inputs on the TV (usually located on the side or in the back).
  • 4 Press the "Source" button on the Philips TV remote.
  • 5 Select the "AV" video display mode.
  • 6 Turn on the PS3. The PS3 logo will appear on the screen.
  • HDMI Connection

    How do I hook up my dish network and a wii console at the same time if I don't have the tv/ant cable I just have the red, yellow, and white cables?


    Yellow is Video, Red & White are Audio, these wire color to color from unit to TV. Use these for the Wii, and the Dish, output will wire the same, if that is the ONLY way to output the signal... You can get "Splitter" boxes that allow a two to one, switchable input. Usually though, it's out with one, in with the other. most modern TV's have multiple ways of getting video into the set. Do you have any "other" Video/Audio inputs? Like, SVHS, Composite, Component? If so then you use one each and choose of the menu on the TV. Connecting this up will be easy. What you do is get a yourself a set of the right, for your setup, cables. That uses EITHER one of the formats, of these described, below. You will need, either, a THREE way Cable, or three separate " Coaxial Cored" Cables with RCA PLUGS on them. ColoredYellow, (Video) Red, & White. (Audio) AV. OR If you have SCARTConnection Sockets, it's a big Black Socket at rear of unit(s), you get aSCART Cable.& It's all inside. Now some units, use a standard calledComponent Video, that uses, a Green, Red, & Blue Plugs. Now, with the Component setup, you will also ,need, Two more Cables, for the AV Audio. these are, Red & White.(So with Component Video there are 5 Cables/Plugs in all). In any event ALL Cables go Color to Color, at each end, plugging into the corresponding Colored RCA Jacks, on either machine, or VCR or TV. Now if you have SCART, then it simply plugs in only one way. It is that simple. So connect up with the leads your set uses, and select the correct "Input" from TV/Remote, it is NOT on a "Channel" it will be on AV, AUX, and Press "Play" on VCR/DVD whatever.... should be all go.

    I cant plug my jvc to my tv .Each time i try,nothing shows up.


    I am assuming that you have an AV cable which you need to have connected to your camcorder at the AV output socket, and the other end should have RCA phono plugs (one red, one white and one yellow) which usually connect to three corresponding sockets on the front or side of most modern TV sets, these may be inside a front panel which opens. Once connected, you need to select the appropriate AV input on your TV remote, very often this will be "Front AV" or AV3 or AV4, you need to check your TV instruction manual to be sure of which input is required for your specific model of TV...hope that helps!

    Zenith TV has no place for yellow, red, white composite plugs


    This TV doesn't have an AV input, so there are no input jacks other than the antenna connector. If you want to connect a device that has only AV outputs (your red, white and yellow plug) you will need an RF converter. This will take the AV signals and convert them to a channel 3 or 4 signal you can tune in on the set.

    But since you don't seem interested in spending any money, you'll probably not like to hear that the converter runs around $15 most places. Take heart, there is an alternative. Find a VCR (if you don't have one already) that has an RF output. Many of the the newer DVD/VCR combos only have AV outputs. You're looking for one that has an "out to TV" threaded connector on the back. These units already have an RF converter built in. Connect your AV plugs to the line in jacks on the VCR and switch to that input, and you can use your video game or DVD player through the VCR.
