I have a 32 inch Olevia HDTV - model 232 S13. The image source options are: HDMI, Tuner, VGA, Component, Composite, VGA-Component.
When I connect my Xbox 360 using the cable with the three ends - Red, White and Yellow - I set my source to 'Component'. In this setting, I only get a Black and White image. I see all the game images, but in BW.
Please help. I have made sure all the cables are firmly connected and to the right ports.
When I set the source to 'Composite', with the wires connected to Red, White and Yellow - absolutely no image from the Xbox displays on TV. But when I set the source to 'Component' with the wires connected to Red, White and Yellow, I get images from Xbox, but in black and white.
Thanks Ratman. How do I configure the Xbox to output Composite?
To add, when my TV is in the Component mode (because like I said, no image shows up in Composite mode) and on my Xbox when I go to Console Settings > Display > nothing shows up in the right hand side of the menu. I only have the option to select 'Normal' or 'Widescreen'.
With component(HD or SD) don't confuse the Red video cable(from the 3 cable video set R,G, and B) with the SD compsite where the (SD)video is on the yellow cable and the audio is again on red and white cables.
Thanks all. I got a new cable from Walmart that has multiple outputs all in one - SVideo, Component, Composite etc. I connected all the component cables and now I see all the colors. The picture is not very crisp, but I guess that coz it's a Olevia.
The problem I now have is, the TV outputs the sound from the Xbox, but there is a lot of static noise as well. If I remove one of the two audio cables (Red or White), the sound goes down a bit, but it is still loud enough to be annoying.
