Can someone post photos of these two so that I can tell the difference?
composite is a single cable usually with a yellow connector on each end
component video is 3 cables coloured Red Green and Blue
componet vastly superior PQ
well u learn sumthing new everyday then dont u
Thanks for the above, but I'm now very confused. So if I have red, white and yellow cables (video, audio in/out), what do I have? My Sony DAVs300 has no component, I'm reliably told (by this forum, and indeed sony), so I thought the above set up was composite (but it's not red green blue), but now you say comosite is just one cable - so is there a fifth way after scart, component, composite and s video ?
From memory the DAV had a choice of s-video or composite video which will be the yellow connector. The red and white connectors will be for audio.
red is audio "right" and white is audio "left"
hence stereo. yellow is video.
Separate names with a comma.
