Question about Philips Flat Panel Televisions

Open Question

Im trying to hook up my Xbox 360 to a Philips 32" HD TV using the Xbox HD AV cable. On this model it has the normal three colours red white and yellow at the side which i was using with my old non HD cable. (when you choose the ext' on the TV there is an ext' for the side and then a few more for ext' on the back of the TV). I have hooked up the new blue green and red part of the HD AV cable but then below that i haven't got a space for the red and white audio part of the cable, there is only a lil black hole which states its for the audio L/R. I have tried putting the red and white cable back into the side and also in another spot they can go on the bottom of the TV but as they seem to be different ext' on the TV the sound doesn't work with the blue green and red which is set at ext' 3 ( if i select ext' 3 i get the picture but no sound, if i select ext' side i get sound no picture!) Can some one please help me as im at my witts end!! ????

ok your tv does not come with the very best sound, you have to get a receiver 7.1 or you can use the optical wire , that's if the system you are using has that option.

Offhand, your Philips 32PFL7422/98 do not have regular Audio Output RCA jacks (white and red), sorry. However, right before the antenna connector is an S/PDIF output connector. This should allow transfer of digital audio signals from the Philips 32PFL7422/98 to a S/PDIF capable receiver or amplifier. If you would look at the rear of your stereo and determine if it has such an input, then it would be a matter of getting the right cable/connector.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

The red white and yellow cables are composite connections. The red/green/blue connections are component connections.

The playstation's composite connections consist of two audio connections- red & white, and a composite yellow video connection. The TV's white connection is the audio, and the red/green/blue are component video. You need an adapter that will connect the one yellow(composite video) to the three red/green/blue (component video) connections

SOURCE: lcd tv hookup

Ive got 3 samsung tv's (lcd, plasma, DLP) and I use HDMI cables on all of them. Its the only way to get the full potential out of the tv. When you use the red/white/yellow RCA cables the signal is anolog aka "old technology". Component cables are good but HDMI is the best. HDMI is a digital signal and thats what all the components that go with the tv should be run on. If your dvd player does not have an HDMI output I would suggest getting one that has that output. As for the cable box most require you to upgrade to digital cable in order to get one with an HDMI output. If you dont want to spend the money on new components and run what you have now the picture will stay mediocre at best. Good luck hope this helped

The three picture cords (red/blue/green) often are a little larger around than the sound cords (red/white). If they are they same size, they are often grouped separate by picture and sound. Double check to verify if you have the "red" cords correct. Good luck.

Is it possible to hook up an slyvania to hd on xbox 360?

hello. You can get an hd signal if you have either of two connections on your tv. One is component hookup (red blue and green jacks). The other would be an hdmi port. If you have the proper cables for your xbox then it is possible.

Can i hook up my xbox 360 to my aquos tv with just the red, yellow, and white cable? Right now I am not getting a color pic

Yes you can but it won't be Hi def. It sounds like you're trying to connect the cables to the Hi def input (Red, blue, green, white and red for the audio) That's not the right place to connect to.

How do i hook up my xbox 360 to the Sharp Aquos

You have a few options actually. depending on which 360 you have you have at least 3 ways to connect; 4 if you have CDMI cable output on Elite 360. you only need to pick one though. easiest is the plug with one yellow and a red and white. the yellow is the video and the red and white are the left and right audio. You can use the red green blue plugs choice if your tv has that input. in that case the red green blue are the video and you use the other paired red white for audio. You can use the S video connection (the round one that looks like a mouse plug) for video. You can use the HDMI (flat, looks like giant USB slot) for really high quality video. So, basically just use whatever cable you happen to have. If you still have questions, please ask as we will definitely get you hooked up for sure:) farmerbear at FixYa

I'm trying to hook up my Xbox 360 to my Advent LCD TV and I can get it working but the game has no sound or color. I've tried several plug combinations but I just keep getting the same results. So where...

The best thing to use is a scat converter Yellow,Red, and White to scat,but other than that the Yellow,Red, and White plug into the back or the side of the tv.
if you use the converter it wont auto detect like it does with a DVD player or free view box,you will have to change the tv source manual AV1 or AV2 for the scat & S-VIDIO for the Yellow,Red, and White.
If that doesn't work try it on another tv if it's still the same change the cable,or if your tv's HD get a HDMI cable.

Xbox 360 hookup problem

Check the video cable coming out of the xbox, depending on which model xbox it is (arcade, pro, elite etc.) it will most likely have both component cables - green, blue and red or RCA cables - Yellow, red and white. It sounds as if your JVC would only be able to run RCA cables (due to its age) so use the yellow cable for video and white and red (or just white if you only have a yellow and white input) and then make sure the switch located on the cable is switched to "standard" and not "hi definition" hope it helps. -if you have any further problems

When i try to connect my xbox 360 to my Vizio hdtv it doesnt not recognize the connection. I have tried replacing the cord to no avail

I have a Vizio 37' tv with an Xbox 360 and it works fine. I am a Cable repair tech, hook up the xbox using the composit cable first RCA these are the red white and yellow cable to a non high def input on the tv, if that works check the settings in the xbox, there is a screen that will allow or enable HD quality pictures. Also check the Xbox cable itself. at the Y there is a small swiitch that goes from componet to composit you can only get HD if you use the Red Blue Green cables, then make sure you have the TV input set to that input other wise you will have only a blue screen. If that does not work, Hell, call the cable company if you are a customer, they should send someone out to show you how to connect it, and they might not even charge you, we don't, but I work for a smaller company, not ComCast or Cox, If you want to email me you can, good luck

No picture

with the x box 360 it defaults to 1080p and this model does not support that resolution. connect xbox with composite cables and go into x box menu and lower resolution to 1080i and source tv back to original connection and should have picture
