Video cable

ON my TV I have one set of outputs (red/white/yellow) in the back of the TV.
I need to hook up two different wires , one for our Wii system and one for our DVD player.
Are there adaptors I can buy that takes one output and makes it two coming from the TV or at least an extension output cable so I can bring it out to the front.

You would get a switch box with separate places (each with red/white/yellow) to connect the Wii and the DVD player and a "common" output to connect to the TV using another cable set.

If there are other kinds of inputs besides red/white/yellow and antenna screw on, then the DVD player will usually work better with one of those. Red/white/red/green/blue (component video, and if present) usually gives a much better picture from the DVD player.


The good conscientious technician or serviceperson will carry extra oils and lubricants in case the new pump did not come with oil or the oil was accidentally spilled, so the service call can be completed without an extra visit.
