Re: Is my TV HD Compatable?
The component jacks on the back might only be good enough to take a progressive input(480p) does you tv say anywhere on it HDTV? run a search of your model number through the internet and see if you can find any information or the user manual

The best connection the kawasaki dvd has is a Component connection. This connection separates the Red, Green and Blue colour signals. Your HD TV should have a component input, just look for Red, Green and Blue RCA inputs labelled "Pr", "Pb", and "Y". You don't need the red, green, and blue colored RCA's specifically for this type of connection. The colors are there to help make it easier to connect. You can use any coloured RCA as long as you have the Pr on the DVD connected to the Pr on the TV and likewise for the other two connections. In addition to these connections you will need two more RCA's (Red and White) for the audio signal. You will need to connect the audio output of the DVD, to the audio input corresponding to the same Component Video input you are using for Video. This should be fairly self explanatory when looking at the DVD's and TV's connections at the back.
Hi, This would be 5 pins, red-white is for audio and rest of 3 pins red-green-blue for video signal, it calls component video. Find out red-green-blue jacks at back of TV that would be label as Y, Yr, Yb Plug each pin in same color to get color picture.
The inputs you refer to should be colored as follows. Red Blue Green Red White (not necessarily in this order) These are what are called Component Video inputs and is one of the way that HD capable equipment connect to your television. It will not get true HD picture but this input will provide you with a crisper clearer picture.
Check the red cable this is where the red comes from, you may have a bad cable, maybe use the blue or green one just to see if the red will come through, it can be the cable box or the tv or the cable itself.
The 37" Vizio I just bought has a very confusing feature where the same input can be used as either the Y channel of the component or the full video channel for composite. If you plug a component source into the TV and then select the composite input ("AV" on the remote), you will see a black and white version of the full component signal (makes sense as the Y channel is just the luminance component). As sad as it is, I was stumped by this for a while until I happened to hit "COMP" and got full color. FWIW, the manual warns about this, but it really doesn't emphasize the point. I wonder how many returns they get because of this.
On this TV there is only one input for any HD resolution. Input # 5 is the component input i.e. red/green/blue cable. Just get the correct cable and match colors from cable box to TV this will allow the TV to display 1080i resolution ( only one this TV supports ). FYI you will also have to connect the red and white cables to the appropriate inputs to get any sound because red/green/blue connectors are just for video display not sound. Once your connected you'll be able to access video # 5 be sure to set your cable box to 1080i resolution also. I hope this helps later J.
on your tv, there should be color coded ports that tell you which cords go where but im almost 100% sure that the red and white cords are for sound and the blue and green cables are for hd video hookups.
