I have a 27F530T and an Xbox 360. When I plug the Xbox into the TV's YPbPr ports, all I get is a box on the TV saying "Unusable Signal," but the sound still works.
I know that the problem is not with the cables or the console, because I have hooked the Xbox into the YPbPr on my Samsung TV with no problems, but the RCA TV is giving me no picture at all. I have also tried fooling with the Xbox resolution settings to no avail.
I would try plugging the Xbox into the TV using the single yellow plug as opposed to the YPbPr inputs, but I use a monster Xbox cable that has no yellow plug, only the YPbPr (a real pity).

Re: YPbPr inputs not working
Hi there. I might add my 2 cents here. On the back of the TV, video2 is both composite, component and audio jacks, all at the same input.
So you say 'the screen says CVideo2 instead of just Video2, so I believe the TV recognizes the difference'. You're right.
Now, are you sure the component cable you're using on the xbox is good ? You could try to connect only the green connector of the component cable to the yellow composite RCA video input of the Video2 input, and see if it displays any video.
Else, i'd try to reset the xbox 360 video settings of the dashboard to defaults; here's intructions on how to do it :
To reset the display settings of the Xbox 360 console to the default settings, remove any discs from the disc tray. Turn the console off and turn it back on. As the console starts, press and hold the Y button, and then pull the right trigger at the same time. The Xbox Dashboard resets the display settings to the default settings, and then automatically restarts the console. Note If you are using an Xbox 360 Wireless Controller, turn the console on by using the Xbox Guide button on the controller. Make sure that you use the player 1 controller when you do this. The player 1 controller will have the upper-left quadrant light illuminated.
Hope that helps a bit. Thanks, cheebster.

Re: YPbPr inputs not working
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..

That TV has an HDMI port so I recommend plugging it in using an HDMI cable. Once you've plugged it in via HDMI, turn on the TV and change the TV's input to the HDMI port. Should just be a matter of finding a button on the TV or the remote labeled "input" and hitting it until it's on the right port.
First, remove the XBox from the cable box and move it to the TV inputs. Use the menu on the front of the TV to change the input device you have plugged the XBox into and it will work. In other words, connect the XBox to AV2 in the rear of your television and select AV from the menu as the input for your device and the XBox screen will appear. If you reconnect your cable to the cable input on your cable box and connect the output to your AV1 on the TV, it will detect your stations, as long as you select Cable from the menu for input type. Let m know if you understand what I am saying.
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).
Well you need a TV. What happens when you connect check the switch on the AV cord that plugs into the 360. If you have no RYB or rca ports that work on your tv buy a nice used CRT tv from cragis list for 20-40 $
you don,t , the xbox 360 will have component cables and posibly an hdmi output , but you can plug the component cables directly to the tv in a auxillary input and on your menu screen it will either say video1 or video2 or video 3 ,you can put the cables from your xbox into those inputs on the tv and as long as your tv is also at that input you should have a signal , hope this helps ,glenn
Make sure that you have the RC Cables (red and white) plugged into the audio ports that coincides with the component video inputs. If that wont work then try plugging the audio and video cables into the inputs for the satellite, since that works. That way you can isolate the issue. If it still wont work try using the XBOX 360 HDMI cable. That has both audio and video.
Very often on HDTVs there may be more than one YPbPr connection... That is the Red Green and Blue. Under each one, or next to, or above, there should be separate red and white audio hookups for each set of YPbPr hookups.
Make sure they are hooked into the corresponding plugs.
Does his TV have other RCA in ports? If so, he should try connecting the 360 to the other one as it could be defective. If he connects a DVD player to the same ports, does he get the same problem? What sort of cables is he using? If he's using a component cable (RGB or YPbPr), he should try using a normal RCA cable. Also, when connecting the 360 to the other TV sets, did you use the same cables he used when he connected it to his TV set? If not, you should try switching the cable.
