Well I finally bought a new DVD player. I purchased a Samsung DVD-HD841. The plan was to use optical audio to my Sony receiver (STR-DE945) and component video to my Panasonic TV. I hooked it up and the TV picture is very red. If I pull the red cable out a little from the TV, the picture clears up. I suspect that I am breaking the connection. I am not sure what each component cable provides so I am having problems solving the issue. Please help. Thanks in advance.
