I have two SD TV's. I also have an HDMI-to-composite converter box. The box works great on one of the TV's, but if hook it up to the other one instead, I get an interference pattern and the colors are turned green. Does anybody know why this could be, and if a box by a different manufacturer might work on this TV?

What converter box is it and what display? No way to answer the question without more info.

The TV is a Toshiba TZ50V61. And I should mention that the composite input on this TV works great with other devices, like my DVD player

The converter box is by "C&E", and the model is "CNE62034". Like I said, the converter box works great with other TVs, it just doesn't like this one. I tried it with both the composite out and the s-video out, and got the same result.

I already spent $40 ordering this box through the mail, as I couldn't find one locally with an s-video port. I'd be willing to buy a different one, but not if it's gonna be the same result

Are you using the same source when it works on other displays? Multiple sources? Could it be a setting in the source?

Does the input on the Toshiba double as component like some do? Maybe it thinks it is seeing component.

No source is necessary, since the converter box outputs a test pattern if no source is attached. The test pattern is clear on one TV, and with interference and green color on the other.


The Toshiba has 6 selectable inputs, and a total of 19 jacks/ports:

1. Antenna 1 (RF jack)
2. Antenna 2 (RF jack)
3. Video 1 (Composite jack, S-video port, Left audio jack, Right audio jack)
4. Video 2 (Composite jack, S-video port, Left audio jack, Right audio jack)
5. Video 3 (Composite jack, S-video port, Left audio jack, Right audio jack)
6. Component (Y jack, Pb Jack, Pr Jack, Left audio jack, Right audio Jack)


So no, I don't think any of the inputs are doubling as component, as each of the inputs have their own dedicated jacks/ports.
