Component Video Question

01/12/2010 12:00 AM

I need help. I have a 6 wire output (SoG?), and a 5 wire input YRB+RW. What do I need to make this work?

Coming out of my device is six wires: Red, green, blue, yellow, red, white.

Going into the back of my monitor is: Red, blue, yellow, red, white.

It seems I have an extra RCA jack. What do I do with the green? Is that my sync signal? Will I have a green tinted image?

Please help me out guys, Have pity on an old mechanic.

This would make sense if you had Red, blue, GREEN, red, white on your monitor. I think the video is red, blue, green (RGB component) and the other red, white are left+right stereo audio. My guess is the yellow on the device is Composite video, don't connect that. If your monitor really is Red, blue, yellow, red, white as you say, maybe the first three (Red, blue, yellow) are what is called YPbPr component video. You can connect these to the red, green, blue (RGB) video on the device, but I suspect the colours would not look right, however it would not hurt to try.

Like the previous post, sounds like you are confusing Component and Composite hookups. In either case, separate red/white are your audio connections. In the case of composite, a single yellow cable is used for video. Component cables are blue, red, green, tied together, generally much thicker than rca audio cables and used for hi-definition video signals.

Got it . Thank you guys.

The yellow input on the back of my monitor has a green inner circle I did not see previously.

The input is therefore either:

Red Blue Yellow/Green with red white (HD)

or

Yellow/Green Red White (SD)

That pretty much sums it up. Thanks again.
