My TV currently has spots for 3 different input devices, currently I use 1 for my Nintendo Wii, 1 for a DVD player, and 1 for cable TV.
I'd like to know if there is a product avilable that would allow me to connect multiple A/V cables to 1 A/V input slot? Much like a surge protector allows you to plug multiple electronic devices into 1 power outlet.
I don't recall the brand of TV, but I know it is a HD flatscreen TV.

Re: Connecting multiple A/V cables to 1 TV
Yes, there are devices to help you.You should shop for an “RF Modulator.”While the intention of this box is convert an A/V signal to RF for older televisions, many modulators offer multiple inputs which can be chosen with a switch.Be sure to check both the input and output options on the box that you buy to ensure it will be compatible with your components and television.

Look for something like this at your favorite electronics store...http://www.bestbuy.com/site/eForCity+-+3+Way+Audio+Video+AV+RCA+Switch+Switcher+Splitter+with+Cable/4655143.p?id=1218501028155&skuId=4655143&st=AV Switch&cp=8&lp=3 Copy all of that into your browser and you'll end up at best buy looking at a A/V Switch that can switch between 3 different devices so you don't have to change the cables...also, look for ones that are remote controlled that have more options...I just included this one as an example...hope this helps you!
Input & Output HDMI 1.4 (3D Auto Setting/Return Channel):4 USB:3 Component In (Y/Pb/Pr):1 Composite In (AV):1(Common Use for Component Y) Digital Audio Out (Optical):1 PC In (D-sub):1 CI Slot:1 SCART:1 RF In (Terrestrial / Cable input):1 RF In (Satellite input):1 Headphone:1 PC Audio In (Mini Jack):1 DVI Audio In (Mini Jack):1 (Common Use for PC Audio in) Audio Out (Mini Jack):- Ethernet (LAN):1
Initially I thought the problem was going to be no composite input on this television. However according to the specs there is one composite (yellow, white, red) input and that is where you connect the wii. Is the problem that you've already connected something to the one input and you're looking for another spot to connect the wii? There is a wii component cable http://www.amazon.com/Official-Wii-Component-Video-Cable-Nintendo/dp/B000JJRV90
Do I understant this correctly? You are using a composite video cable (A/V y,r,w) and connecting it with the component video input (and then telling the TV to use the YPbPr source). You need a component video cable (3 RCA plugs on each end - red, green and blue) and an audio cable (2 RCA plugs - red and white) for the Wii. It wasn't included with the Wii but it does have the component video ports. Otherwise you would need a SCART to composite connector to work with the input. Alternatively, you could get an HDMI cable and connect that between the Wii and the TV (depnding on the age of the Wii).
If I've read this correctly, you have the media box and dvd player sharing the SCART input (EXT1).
the easiest way to get signal to your HT-Z320 is to run the audio cables from your cable or sat box to the input on your theater system...for the dvd either run HDMI to the LED TV or component (whatever it supports) the Wii system can be plugged into any AV -IN on the LED tv (if you want to use the Wii on the theater system you will need to extend your RED AND WHITE audio signal cables to the input on your theater system.
It has to do with the type of input - Video2 and 3 are Component video inputs, requiring a 3- wire component video cable (Red,blue,green for video, red/white below for audio). Video 1 is for analog equipment (Yellow for the video, red and white for the audio). Unless your Wii comes with a component video out cable and jacks (same red blue green), you'll have to use video 1 for the Wii, and use Video 2 for the dvd. You'll need a component video (3-wire) cable for your dvd, which should have the jacks for it. You can use the present cable you're using for the dvd, but you'll have to change the connections on the back of the dvd to component video out, and you'll still need another 2-wire cable to connect the audio out on the dvd to the audio in on Video 2 on the tv.
Here's the manual for your tv - look on page 8 for these connections. the Wii will be an analog connnection, the dvd will be a digital connection.
1 Ensure the LCD TV display is turned on. 2 Verify that all the cables are properly connected to the LCD TV display, including the power cable. 3 Check to see if there is a blue or amber light on the lower, right-hand corner of the LCD TV display. A blue light indicates the LCD TV display is on. An amber light means the LCD TV display is in power save mode. 4 Ensure the proper source is selected in the Input Select menu. See "Input Select Menu" on page 24 for more information. 5 Reconnect any devices that are currently connected to the LCD TV display. If you are using multiple devices, connect and test one device at a time. 6 Connect another device that you know is working properly. 7 Reset the original factory defaults. Press Menu on the remote control, select Setup, and then select Factory Reset.
Problem Possible Solution No sound
1 Ensure mute is not turned on. Pressing the Mute button on the remote control turns the mute function on and off. 2 If only certain LCD TV channels do not have sound, then you need to correct the Input Select menu in the TV Menu (see "Input Select Menu" on page 24). 3 Verify that the audio cables are firmly connected to both the audio input connectors on your LCD TV display and audio output connectors on your devices. Ensure that the cable colors match the connectors colors. 4 Also, ensure that the audio cables are connected to the same row as the video cables. See "About Your LCD TV Display" on page 5 for the location of the connectors. 5 Reconnect the device using the same type of connector. For example, if you are using the composite connector on the bottom, try connecting the device to the composite connector on the side of the LCD TV display. See "About Your LCD TV Display" on page 5 for the location of the connectors. After you connect the device, change the input source in the TV Menu. See "Input Select Menu" on page 24 for more information. 6 Connect the device using a different connector. For example, if you are experiencing the problem using a composite connector, try using the component connector. NOTE: To connect to a different connector, you need the appropriate cables for that connector. See your device documentation for a list of supported connections. After you connect the device, change the input source in the TV Menu. See "Input Select Menu" on page 24 for more information. 7 Test the device on a different TV.
