Help! Hd Catch-22!
Posted 19 January 2008 - 07:52 PM
All of this leads me to believe that I don't have everything hooked up properly to begin with, but at this point I think I'd need an engineering degree to get it set up right. I also have my cable TV box and a DVD/VCR player connected, so there aren't a lot of jacks available to plug stuff in. Let me spell out how I have the X-box 360 hooked up:
There are 6 plugs on the Pelican cable - one red & one white for audio, then a seperate group of 4 (another red, yellow, green and blue) which I assume are for video. The X-box only works (in standard mode) if I plug in the red & white audio ones and the yellow video one into the area marked "SVideo/CVBS." There are three more jacks just to the right of this area marked "AV Out" (with the helpful markings R-L-V on it; thanks, that still doesn't tell me which plug to use). I've tried all sorts of combinations of plugging things in trial-and-error style, but the only way I can get any video at all is if I use the above configuration in standard TV mode.
Soooooooo, is there anyone out there with a solution besides "smash that TV with a hammer & get a new one?"

PC - Audio In - Y Pb Pr - DVI Audio In - HDMI - Optical - YPbPr Audio In - Headphone out - SVideo - CVBS (yellow) - L (white) & R (red) SVideo/CVBS Audio In
- R (red) L (white) V (yellow) AV OUT - RF Input
My cable box is connected to the first "Y Pb Pr" section, the "YPBPR Audio In" section and RF Input. The red & white audio X-Box cables are connected to the l & R SVideo/CVBS Audio In" section. So I figured the blue, green and red video X-box cables would have to go in the three AV OUT jacks, but I've tried all sorts of combinations and nothing seems to work. There's just nowhere else to plug them in.

I just confirmed this. I saw a picture. You have only 1 set of component inputs. Either put the cable box to hdmi/dvi or the 360 to hdmi.
