I am having an issue with the above LCD HD TV Sony Bravia.
I have the instructions on how to view all the external connections, how to label the connections and to connect the external equipment to the TV.

So far I have connected 3 items and it only shows 3 Video outputs : Video1 2 and 3 which I have used up. Now I want to connect another external item (a VCR) and the only options left are HD/DVD1 and 2.  However when I plug the item into either of these i get nothing.
What I want to know is which plugs on the TV belong to which label on the external input list, for instance which item on the list pertains to the connections on the side of the TV?  The manual does not specify which physical out puts on the TV (side and rear) belong to which item on the external input list.

Can someone please tell me how to connect more items to the tV beyond the Video 1 2 & 3 outputs?  I know you can connect more however i can't get it to work. I also want to connect a DVD/HDD recorder to this list and do not know how this can be done with the items the TV is showing as available?

email me privately with an answer if possible on:

Hi Marg, your TV has HDMI, Component and Composite inputs, it sounds like you have connected all the devices via composite, hence used the 3 composite inputs up but left all the higher quality ones unused. What are you connecting to it, and do those devices have HDMI and or Component outputs, your DVD most definitely will as will your DTV STB if you have one.
