HOME ENTERTAINMENT FORUMS..ANY RECOMMENDATIONS??

by the way, i bought a 32TV that has the component inputs to
use a three wire blue-green-red video picture connection
from a dvd player,etc.

i am finding out my dvd does NOT have the blue-green-red
outputs neither does my satelite receiver.

i checked 5 new dvd players at a local store,none has the
in/outputs for a 3 wire blue-green-red connection.

do they make dvd players for a 3 wire connection to a tv?
perhaps they do but those dvd players are a specialty item.

I've never seen a tv with those inputs. Is the TV new?!?! New TVs have some combination of three different inputs, coaxial cable(the kind the cable company uses), S-Video(the newest, video only), or three inputs which are ussually yellow, red, and white. Although they yellow, red, and white inputs look identical, the yellow carries the video feed, while the red and white carry the left and right audio. The idea of sending video over three cables, one for each color, seems ridiculous. Check to see if the three colors correspond to the typical yellow, white, red setup on most other equipment.

Componet sockets are the best analog-analog connection and are superior to composite, S-Video or RGB.
One thing that can be confusing is all the different standards, while some components are simply colour coded, others will says Y-Pr-Pb, or Y-Cr-Cb. have a look on your DVD player for any connections marked with these names, to connect up
Y=Green
Pr=Cr=Red
Pb=Cb=Blue
(some sources say these connections are the same, others that they are different, I have only used the Y, Pr, Pb so I don't know)

On the other hand you may find you have Y-U-V or Y,B-y,r-y, these cant be mixed with the formats above. It normally comes down to what kind of TV you have, plasmas have these connections, CRTVs have the above connections.

Lots of DVD players have the Y, Pr, Pb or Y, Cr, Cb so it shouldnt be too hard to find. I've got a budget DVD player and it has them (Toshiba SD-330E)

This forum was recently recommended by Mulder for all AV stuff

Oh yeah, forget to mention. All three component sockets are used for video, there is no audio. If you do use them you will need to have a seperate cable for the Red-White audio (although a lot of component cables come with all five)
