Hi, I see there are many opinions on this so I just want to confirm with a little more detail. Easy to find product, good price, excellent delivery terms and timing. You'd be right, up to a point, because you will get a picture. I'd like to experiment with this. Composite and component cables can be used interchangeably. I found much cheaper one here: I should give a try here at Singapore this week as I Could get a quality one for same price.
I actually was tossing this up too. However, before going into more details, let's review what composite and component video connections are. This reduces background noise, including clicks or pops, and also conserves the amount of physical space needed for each groove, by reducing the size of the larger low-frequency undulations. As a result, they are decreased in number, consolidated, or eliminated. Cables are really just pieces of metal.
Component cables are the ones for video only splits the video signal into 3 separate signals the composite cables have a red right audio , white left audio and yellow video. Ideally, you'd always have the right cable for the job, but sometimes you can improvise. Varying cable quality means that a cheap line-level audio cable might not successfully transfer component video. It just lets you play an old video or display an old camcorder on a newer display. I'd probably perceive a non-existant quality improvement as well. Another visible difference is the color of the connectors.
These connections have a row of five differently-colored inputs green, blue, and red for video, white and red for audio. Thanks Irvin I just want to make sure you aren't too confused here. This is accomplished in the amplifier with a phono input that incorporates standardized circuitry. But like a lot of their technical articles, this one is confused, confusing, and in some places simply wrong. If you could provide the exact model numbers of your two units, more authoritative guidance could be provided.
Sounds like you need to go from composite to component, not component to composite like this converter provides. Is it possible that it's a poor-quality cord? But you should look to see which connector and what gender you need for each. The ring is often segmented to provide spring gripping pressure when mated. However, often component inputs will support composite signals. Devices mount the socket , consisting of a central hole with a ring of metal around it. I've gotten everything but the sound. Samsung uses the same connector for both types of signals, thus eliminating the separate composite connector, while Philips has eliminated support for composite video entirely, reducing their costs just a little bit more.
Modern phonograph needles and give a very low level output signal of the order of a few millivolts which the circuitry amplifies and equalizes. Sometimes the opposite is employed with the video cables featuring this different cover design, again to prevent confusion. The other two connections are supposed to provide color-difference signals, which are used to create a colored image. Each signal type has a color and every cable plug is color-coded to help you identify which type of signal it will transmit. I'm going to ask a noob question here since this thread has piqued my interest in trying to use component video. They're calculating wavelength without taking the cable velocity factor into account.
Composite video cables transmit image data in a single line-level cable where video information is encoded into a single channel. Composite is limited in that it transmits lower-quality video. Sometimes the white or the red is replaced with a black connector instead, but typically yellow, red and white are the basic colors. Finally, the cable used to connect a subwoofer is purple. This was the intended purpose for purchasing it, works well.
I presume you guys are suggesting what I'm doing is possible. Similarly, the maximum quality of the image will be limited by the weakest link, as it were. Product is perfect and works like a charm. You'll get at least a black-and-white greyscale image. So please let me know if I understand you guys correctly.
