I am going with the HDMI cable. Bad news--I have a three footer and it's too short. Good news--they make longer ones and I'll be picking one up tomorrow.
Go figure, I checked the Toshiba TV line and none of them have composite conections anymore. My two from 2011 had one or two ports with audio. Looks like the yellow port went the way of analog TV. So much for connecting VCR's , camera's old video games etc without fancy converting boards? Thats progress for ya!

HDMI ports and cables seem abit excessive for 720 dip television signals, oh well.

Sure install box, use great imagination! Wii fit system may not work though.

You should have a selectable A/V plate that will allow you to do this. You just can't hook it directly to the TV.

The entertainment center is the Concertone ZX800.
These newer HD tv's actual kind of have a cross component/composite video connection (to put it in simple terms). If I remember correct, the yellow plug goes into the green component port (it may be the red though). I can't really see clear on your pic to read all the writing.

I have my kids wii gamestation hooked into our HD television at home this way. The red and white audio ports use the red and white cables, and the yellow cable goes to the (I think) green component port. When I get home I can make sure.

Composite cable into component input? - High Def Forum - Your High Definition Community & High Definition Resource

I found this. Interesting discussion about using the "green" gun input.

Bottom line:
************************************************** ****

Having said all that though, such inputs are specialized inputs that have been designed to act in this manner. However, regular component-video inputs cannot be used as composite-video inputs and attempting to use them that way could possibly damage the TV. Input number 2 on the above-mentioned JVC I'Art TV is a regular component-video-only input that cannot be used as a composite video input.

Bottom-line is that unless the TV's manual clearly indicates that a particular component-video input is an either/or input then one should assume that it cannot handle composite video.

************************************************** ********

Old Car, see if this will fix you up. It is a Toshiba forum and they are talking about how to hook up for a Wii, but are having the same problems (black and white picture) you have. You need to hook your video (yellow) cable to the green port on back of your television (it's not correct according to your pic on page 1). You will also need to adjust your settings on the tv. It all in the forum below:

Here is an excerpt:
Q:
I am having the same issue, I hear audio fine, but doing what you suggest I put the yellow cord into the top slot. I get a black and white picture. I can see the Wii page, but it's not in color. What am I doing wrong? I did exactly as you suggested and the pictures are in blacks and greys, please help.



A:
The component (also called ColorStream HD) and composite (also called Video) connections share a single jack on the back of the TV. Rather than simply changing inputs, you have to go into the preferences to tell the TV you want to use it as Video rather than ColorStream HD. After that, you can change inputs and Video will correctly show up.

Open the "Preferences" menu and switch "AV Input" from "ColorStream HD" to "Video."

I found on the Samsung tv site the term I was looking for. It is called a shared composite component port.......and is the green.

I think you're correct the green is marked CVBS/Y. The dealer missed the port. Can't find book, op better check his book, but I agree its probably shared. Saved at least a quarter to leave it out. Where can he connect the HDMI cable? If he wanted to.
