    HeLLo Everyone,

    I just got my Plasma TV yesterday, it is currently mounted on the wall above the fireplace ( fake one ). I am having a little problem, When i connect my DVD Player ( Sony NC665P ) to one of the 3 Video Input ( RCA ) in the back of the TV i don't get any video at all. I use the 2 of the component channels and they work fine, ofcourse i don't have any sound cause i haven't got my AV Reciever yet. On those 3 video channels in the back of the TV i am using RGB cables and i was told by the sales person that i can use that cable instead of regular RCA Cable ( Yellow, Red & White ) as long as i have same color connection on both end. I have been going through the setup of the TV to see if there is something in there, but so far i haven't found anything yet. In the front of the TV it has another Video Input, when i use that it works completely fine. Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks !n Advance ...

    I found out what the problem is,
    Basically, if u have a s-video cable connected to the back of the tv on line1/2 ( even though the other end is not connected to anything at all ) it overwrites composite/rca so leave the s-video cable out. I found this problem out cause s-video worked fine while compostie/rca was connected on the back of the TV, so i took the s-video out and it worked.
    Thanks Anyways ....

    Also, i bought the Marantz SR7400 Receiver today and currently have my DVD player and my Cable Box connected to it, and i am using UP-CONVERSION feature to convert my DVD and CABLE via Master OUT to the COMPONENT INPUT 1 on my TV, and using regular RCA for audio through my TV until i get my Speakers ...
    Any suggestion(s) on what speakers to use with my setup ?
