If you select the wrong HDMI source nothing will show up. If you plug something in HDMI 1 and you pick HDMI 2, then theres no picture or sound

Just go buy a cheap Blu Ray player. The cost of them now over a regular DVD is peanuts, and then you can play both DVDs and Blu Rays.

If you do that then you will have an HDMI output, which will carry both audio and video. Less cables cluttering things up and the best picture you can get for an RV

Ahhh resolution isn't everything. Image quality is lost when combining video components.

S-Video signal and Composite signal have the same resolution but the S-Video quality is better since the color(C) and luminescence(Y) signals are not combined.

Component video can carry higher resolution and higher picture quality by doing less combining. The sync(S)+luminescence(Y) are on the green wire (the reason why you get a black-and-white picture on the green connector when connecting it to a composite output) and no, the green wire doesn't actually carry the green color. The blue wire carries the difference between the blue color and Y, the red wire carries the difference between the red color and Y. The remainder produces the green color.

Component video can output higher res like 1080i but it will not look nearly as clear as 1080i on a full bandwidth system (where Red, Green, Blue and the Syncs (HV) are separated (like a Computer monitor)).

Best answer yet.

I pretty much never buy DVDs anymore...just BluRay. BluRay is Hi Def and DVD's are not.

Ugghhh...you are of course correct...In my mind, I thought you said component video and you did say composite. Yes, composite video would make it look horrible.

You are partially correct. I misspoke.

The wrong input source on Tv. With a Furrion and Drive system watching DVD you can get B/W picture with sound on wrong inputs. How do I know? Had to fix for kids.
