I bought these brand new component cables for my dvd/vcr. Hooked it up from component out (Dvd player), to my hd ready tv that supports up to 1080i. Checking the instruction manual for my TV, I have 2 spots to plug in the component wires. One is for progressive one is for interlaced. It was plugged into the progressive one.
Then I put the Progressive feature “on” for my dvd player. My screen is black and says “No cable connected”. It’s plugged in properly, yes… And I tried my other DVD player to make sure. Exact some thing.
These wires are new, there shouldnt be a problem. And I tried it on my 2 new dvd players… Obviously something is wrong.
There are some features on my DVD Player which I don’t fully understand like the “SP/EP” button…
And yes, I had my DVD/VCR set to DVD mode so it would accept the component wires but still…
Some things to know:
- The Progressive Component In to my TV works because I play my Wii in 480p all the time.
- Composite works just fine.
- When I plug my component audio in, it works. But the video doesn’t because it still says “No Cable Connected”
Please help, maybe I’m doing something wrong.
