  3. How do I plug Gamecube composite into tv's component? And what setting?

There's a similar topic I looked at already, and the solution seemed to be "in the settings". But what setting is it supposed to be?? I can't seem to find it.



The yellow is plugged into the green slot.
The picture comes on as soon as I also plug the white into the blue slot, but the screen is black and white, and the pictures's distorted.

Also there's no sound.

And by distorted I mean there's lines, and a square-ish shaped pattern throughout the screen.

You should check your TV's AV input settings. For example, for my Sony Bravia it is under Settings/Setup/AV Setup - Manage Inputs.

you don't plug composite into component, only composite into the yellow, white, red, and component into the green, blue, red. i mean really, you had to be told this?

The tv obviously doesn't have the yellow and white composite slots, only the component green blue red, or I would have done that in the first place. I mean really, you had to be told this?

The problem is that you're plugging the white audio cable into the blue Pb video input. I run composite through my component input on my HDTV, and it works fine. You want to set it up like this:

Composite -> Component TV
___Yellow -> Green (Video)
____None -> Blue (Video)
____None -> Red (Video)
____White -> White (Audio)
_____Red -> Red (Audio)

Makes sense?

Edit: it sounds like your audio inputs might be somewhere else on the TV. Does your component input have five ports in a row like I show above?

Sat down to type a response saying "Tried that before, and yes they're in a row, but didn't work."
and decided to change the source/input back to cable, and noticed a new input was there, and it works! Thanks.

I guess I'll still leave the link to the picture in here for anyone else who might have this problem.

Ah one of those irritating-sounding TVs you must choose composite or component.
I don't own one myself.

Did S-Video ever have some kind of heyday or was it just a per-component thing that the N64 and Gamecube seem to have immortalized?
