Question about Panasonic TH-50PHD7UY 50 in. HD-Ready Plasma Television
Hi, im having a problem connecting a game console to my home entertainment system and hoping for some help. i have a panasonic plasma (th-50phd7uy) display that is connected to a scientific atlanta dvr hd digital tv tuner (time warner cable) and a panasonic dvd sound system (sc-ht670). the display is connected with component cables and the dvd sound system is connected by s video. the problem im having is were do i plug in a game console and what inputs do i use on the display.
You did not list which console you have and what type of cables it has.
Looks like your plasma has:
If this is an xbox360 or PS3 then you will want to use the component connection, but this one is already used by the cable tuner. Don't worry there is a solution. The xbox360 and ps3 output a higher resolution that your plasma can handle, so use the component with those systems.
If it is an older console, predating the xbox360, then use the composite or S-video connections.
Since you are short on video inputs, you might need a video switch. A switch with both component and S-video connections for future add-ons.
You can find them all over the web, or your local video store like walmart and best buy. Here is a switch i found on ebay that should work:
here is the ebay search i used:
Make sure you buy extra cables, most of these boxes do not come with cables, so buy what you need.
I prefer video switches that don't require a power outlet, but it's your choice. Some of the powered switches, have remotes for the lazy people, but I don't need anymore remotes on my table, keep that in mind.
