What are component cables?
Component cables provide a high definition connection between devices, such as between an HD converter and an HDTV. They include three separate color-coded video wires. To ensure that the three cables are connected to the correct ports, devices usually identify the ports by both color and letter:
- Y — Green
- Pb — Blue
- Pr — Red
Component cables are for video only, so audio cables must also be used. For more information on connecting component cables, see How do I hook up my converter to my TV using component cables?
