    My XBR450 was just delivered and all 3 S-video jacks are not working.
    Video 1 -- no picture at all
    Video 2 -- red/green picture fluctuating and scrolling
    horizontally
    Video 3 -- same as Video 2
    Any ideas?
    I think I'll call to exchange it unless someone knows something simple is wrong.
    Thanks

    It was the cable. I looked at the connector and found a broken wire.
    Does anyone know what Monster Cable's warrenty is. I'll replace it with a Bettercables S-video if I have to.
