N64 Composite Connection Mystery?
I have a Dynex HDTV with Component/Composite hookups. If my N64 is plugged in (correctly) it does not register. However, I have found a workaround. If I plug in another composite device (XBOX 360 for example) that registers, I can switch out the composite cables Indiana Jones-style and get the 64 to appear. Everything works perfectly from that point on as long as I don't shut off the 64 or change the input. If I change the input from, say, Component/AV to HDMI and back, the 64 goes back to not registering.
My ultimate solution was to hook everything up through a composite switcher. Even ran through the switcher the same problem exists (but the Indiana Jones routine is replaced by a button). This is just super weird and I would love to know what the cause of this problem is. Even better would be a solution so I don't have to have such a complicated set-up.
