    I there, I recently bought a new TV, the model number on the back is Bush LCD40883f 1080p.

    Link to TV

    If you scroll down it says

    "Connectivity:

    2 HDMI sockets and 1 SCART socket.
    Component video socket.
    Composite.
    Headphone socket.
    AV socket (side)."

    I have something I need to connect to the TV via component cables but the only inputs I can see are composite, scart and HDMI 1 & 2. When I press the source button to select the source I get this list.

    "TV
    SCART
    SIDE AV
    HDMI 1
    HDMI 2
    YPbPr
    VGA/PC"

    The only one I am unsure about here is YPbPr -- is this something I may be looking for? Is a "Component video socket" different from a regular component input?

    Or is this false advertising, and should I get a component to something converter?

    I had a read through that before I posted here and it didn't help me.

    If I get a component to VGA cable should I be good to go?

    YPbPr is Component :smashin:

    What are you trying to connect via component?
    You should have a lead with blue/green/red connectors, plus another 2 connectors for stereo sound (red/white)- so 5 connectors in total on your Component/YPbPr cable.

    It's an Avermedia Capture Card. I do indeed have a lead with blue/green/red + red/white but no space to put them in the TV from what I can see, even though the source menu has an option to switch the source to YPbPr so I'm not quite sure what I'm supposed to do. The only thing I can think of is to get a component to VGA cable and plug the component/YPbPr cable into that and set the source to VGA

    What does the manual say?
    Does it show where the YPbPr inputs are?

    If there aren't any, then that is false advertising.

    That won't work.
    Have a good look around the back and sides of the Tv for those coloured sockets.
    Maybe there's a proprietry socket on the rear and a short adapter lead is supplied with a plug to fit the socket and 5 phono sockets at the other end similar to some Samsung and other Slim models.
    Check the box/packing.

    Component to VGA cable could work, BUT only if the VGA input on the TV supports YPbPr, & not just RGB.
    You would need to check the manual to see what the VGA input supports.

    I never thought about checking the packaging for something I may have missed - I'll do that tomorrow, thanks for the tip.

    As for the manual I found this

    "3. PC Input (VGA)

    Connects a personal computer to the TV. Connect the PC cable between the PC INPUT on the TV and the PC output on the PC. You can use the PC input to allow YPbPr signal connection with a device that has component output. Connect the YPbPr to PC cable (not supplied) between the PC INPUT on the TV and the component video outputs on the device."

    So maybe if I got my hands on one of these I'd be good to go?

    A pound to a penny the sockets are around the back possibly under a lift-off cover or side panel or a lead/adapter is lying around in the packaging or user manual poly bag.

    Yep, sounds like the TV lacks proper Component inputs, & Component has to go via the VGA socket. According to the manual, a YPbPr to VGA cable should be the way to go.

    Ok thanks a lot, if the box turns out to be empty, which I imagine it will, I'll go ahead and get one of those cables.

    Thanks all.

    Hard to tell from the 2nd last pic but what colour are the two phono sockets above the yellow (composite video) socket...red and white or what?

    Not quite sure what you mean. In the middle picture the sockets from top to bottom are USB, yellow video, red & white audio then headphones.

    Yeah, that's just composite.
    I think the solution is as given in the instruction manual- to use a component to VGA cable/adapter as the VGA input on the TV supports YPbPr.
