Emerson LCD HDTV 19 inch won't connect to Xbox 360

We tried to plug the new xbox 360 to the new Emerson HDTV, with the Component HD AV cable and we followed the directions, but when we turned the switch to HDTV the picture stayed blue and we could hear the sound of the video game playing. However, when I moved the cable to the S-video input jack and changed the switch to just t.v. it came on. Does this mean we are not seeing the game displayed in High Definition? Your prompt response is appreciated. Thanks!

Re: Emerson LCD HDTV 19 inch won't connect to Xbox 360

Im not an expert on the 360s, but I believe there is a switch or option on them to play them in HD feed. They must be set to play HD as far as I understand.

How should I connect a Sony Wega KF-50WE620 to an XBox360 ?

Since the TV accepts HD signals only via DVI and component inputs, the only logical way is to use the "Xbox 360 Component HD AV Cable" as show in the link below:

How to hook up your Xbox 360 or Xbox 360 to TV

The TV will not accept a VGA input. A cable converting HDMI to DVI would also require that you break out the L + R audio channels, too. The one I mentioned above does this all for you with no degradation in video signals.

I have a toshiba rear projection tv 40inch model no 40pw13p, does anyone know how i connect the xbox 360 as i cant get any av channels up?

Hello:The xbox came with an audio and video cable, probably componet cables on one end, if you are going to use HDTV input which is the red/grn/blue cables on the end of you xbox plug them into the corresponding color in the back of the tv, also on your cable is a switch labeled HTDT and TV make sure the switch is in the HDTV mode if you are going to connect the componet cables if you are going to use regular video then make sure its in the other posistion. If you use componet cables you are going to use the red an white audio cables also a total of five cables should be connected to the TV. Some newer xboxs have hdmi output as well this is the better of the three connections as it also has audio and hd all on one cable. using your tv's remote switch the tv's input to the same input you connected your xbox to. HAPPY GAMING..

Xbox360 hd hookup problem---1080i

Your component cable is probably switched to the HD setting. You have to switch it back in order to get video when hooked up to a regular TV.

Convergance issue on one AV input only

This is not a convergence problem in the traditional sense as it would effect all inputs not just one. I would be looking at the video switching IC as the defective part. I'll look up your model to try to get you more details. Are you going to attempt the repair yourself?

Plays dvds on xbox 360 fine, but no picture for games/dashboard

already solved it. thanks. i couldn't see the xbox settings blade because of the blank screen so switched my component cable to the tv setting instead of the hdtv setting, then i could see the dashboard in non-hd and switched the resolution to 720p while simultaneously switching the component cable back to the hdtv setting. that worked.

RCA D52130 52 in. Won't Display High Def

I doubt you'll look at this 2 years later, or even have the T.V.

I have the same TV and was able to view ps3 and xbox 360 games in 1080i, but it's a little tricky. First, let me say that the ps3 is probably not the best system to try using 1080i in unless you have a 360 to help trick the tv into working.

Xbox 360
You need to first set the video to 1080i. This will make the screen display in a bunch of horizontal lines most of the time, but if you keep toggling it on and off, it eventually works. To avoid having to sit and swap between the two modes, it's easier to first set it to 1080i and confirm the setting, then go back into the settings, select 720 (first option above 1080i) and cancel as soon as the video mode changes. 95% of the time this will make it display correctly in 1080i mode. If you turn the tv off and back on, it will sometimes reset to the horizontal lines. If you restart the xbox, it will reset to horizontal lines most of the time. With the ps3, you can set it to 1080i and keep toggling it until it works, but when the game launches it can screw up again, so it's best to have the xbox on and ready with a component switch so you can fix it with the xbox then switch back to the ps3. I think the cable that comes with the tv for HD input (the component plugs don't work, they only support 480, but the vga looking input supports 1080i) - the cable is just poor quality and can barely handle the signal. I've been trying to find a better quality cable with no luck.

Hope this helps other people with this ancient beta HD input canadian tvness.
