    I own a Mits HDTV 55807
    Keeping in mind, I have a DVD player hooked up to the back of the tv with Componate cables.
    The DVD player works fine and looks fine.
    But when I hook up a VCR or incoming cable line to the back of the tv, the whole picture is grey(no color) and has TONS of video interfernce.
    This EVEN happens when I play a VCR tape.
    BUT my DVD is PERFECT(picture/color)
    What the heck is going on????
    I'm trying to get ready for Buffy night(musical)
    Somebody please help me before I go nuts!!!

    Are you hooking these to the Coaxial connection?
    Sounds like something needs service (RF Mod?).
    Have you tried the composite video input from the VCR?

    Hey fella . . . I bet you're still livin' in your parent's cellar . . . downloading pictures of Sarah Michelle Gellar . . . and posting "Me too!" like some brain-dead AOL-er . . . I should do the world a favor and cap ya' like Old Yeller . . . you're just about as useless as MPEGs [sic] to Hellen Keller.

    Try using the A/V connection from your VCR. You'll get a better picture than using the coax as you reduce ghosting and interference.
