I am using the WDTVlive with my crt sony 29". Since it is not a lcd/plasma I opted for the composite route. The composite a/v connections were fine. I have hooked the optical cable to my avr with the WD, and as for the video I connected with the usual yellow cable for video at the back of my TV. So far so good.
The manual suggests using component cables for better video quality. I tried to connect the same via component: r/b/g but no luck. There was no signal detected.
Let me elaborate, I first connected via composite, changed the settings in A/v to Component video > selected 480p @ 60 Hz, again tried with 526p@50Hz and finally tried with 720p@60 Hz as it was prompted> selected rbg > and came out of it, and later connected via component but still there was no signal.
I went through the TV manual, where it specifies- “If your DVD player(here we will consider WD player) can output interlace and progressive mode signals select the interlace output on your dvdp/WD when connecting to component video input on your TV”
It also further states - “Your TV can receive either 525i/60Hz or 625i/50Hz interlace signals.” (Does it imply that the TV is capable of receiving only interlace signals. If so what do I do for component connections)
Rest everything has been taken care of as per (1) matching the colour-coded connectors
(2) Setting the option of component video on WD (3)… and I can’t blame the cables since they are brand new, just opened.
Your suggestions and opinions will be highly appreciated. Looking forward for a better visual picture via components.
Thanks and regards
