OK, so a little bit of a weird request here. I bought the WD TV Live HD about 6 months back and it was working great back in Ireland. But have now moved over here and need a little bit of help.
I used to connect the TV Live via HDMI but our new TV over here doesn’t have HDMI, only component (blue, green, red) video inputs. Can I buy a cheap HDMI-component cable and get best picture quality? At present I’m using the composite/phono (red, yellow and white) to get video but quality is very poor, so would like to try out the component connection. The TV is a 9 year old 32" CRT Panasonic HDTV so takes component in at 480p and 1080i i think.
Secondly both my hard drive (1TB WD elements) and WDTV Live have UK plugs. Both have adapters that can be slipped off though, to just change the plug ends. Should I try to find little fittings that can change these or is it best to try and just buy new transformers/plugs altogether? AT present I have the WDTV Live plugged into one travel adapter and can only then run videos off a flash drive.
Any advice, ideas or thoughts would be great! I’m in Toronto so if cables/transformers can be bought somewhere downtown then that’d be better than online. Thanks again!
