Question about Televison & Video
Hello, My name is Debbie petri. I just inheirted a 27-30in TV from my deceased X husband. I am trying to hook up a Xbox 360, but it won't convert to TV Video, how can I fix this problem? thank you
SOURCE: YPbPr inputs not working
Tacz, What video input# on the back of the TV is your component video?? Are you sure the TV is set to look at that video input#??? You may be looking at one of the composite video inputs as far as the TV is concerned and with nothing plugged in to that input the TV would naturally give the error message you indicated. Let me know.. Bill

Have you checked the aspect ratio?? May be that when the kids had the X-Box hooked up they simply changed the aspect to zoom.

If I understand your posting/description right, you have:
1, a Sanyo TV with only 1 video input;
2. you have a DVD player with only video output; and
3. you have a VCR (which I will assume to be with both video input and output).
Your query, if I may clarify, is how to hook them up so that you need not connect/disconnect any video cable when you want to switch video source from either DVD or VCR.
If that is what you want, then connect:
a. audio/video OUT of your DVD to audio/video IN of the VCR;
b. audio/video OUT of your VCR to audio/video IN of the TV.
The above described connection would allow you to:
i. watch DVD movies on your TV (your VCR must be powered ON and set to Video INput, your TV must be powered ON & set to Video INput);
ii. watch tape movies from your VCR without disconnecting/connecting cables.
Additionally, this arrangement would allow you to record DVD movies in your VCR. Further, connecting your cable/aerial to the RF INput of your VCR would allow you to do the same with a TV/Cable program.
Incidentally, if one of your units (TV, VCR, DVD) would only have a single audio input, it is still possible since some models uses the white audio RCA connector as either left or mono, the red is right. You can also use a 2 female RCA to 1 RCA male adapter as shown below to joint the red/white audio.
Hope this be of some idea/help. Pls post back how things turned out or should you require additional information.
Good luck and kind regards.

Hi have you tried going into the menu option using the telly controll and switching the hd mode on this should then allow you to use the xbox through hdmi cable

Yeah, mine did the same thing.
I looked around and it turns out that this problem is pretty close to same thing as the red ring of death, so in theory, to fix this problem you can do the samething as you would do for any RROD.
Last night I did the towel trick and fortunatley it worked for about an hour, than the tv screen went fuzzy and then black. I tried towel trick again for the ful 20 minutes and it seems to be working.
Hope this helps anyone, and wish me luck that my xbox holds out untill I get enough money to buy a new one or a PS3.
