I'm trying to hook up my u verse box to my Vizio. I have no yellow port on the tv for the video component cable. I don't have HD service there fore no HDMI cable. Any ideas? Need all the help I can get.

tktrick1 - kind of wierd looking for the manual. I did find one that has inputs as you describe &n it does show a dual use jack as I suggested. The bottom row of jacks for component reuses the first jack on the left for composite. It is clearly labeled as such.

tktrick1 - Vizio is a flat panel HD set?? Yes?? Therefore, connect it HDMI or component. This will allow best picture, zoom control and available for free HD preview. Get your HDMI cable at monoprice.com.

Post your model number so I can look at the manual. You can temporarily connect COAX - Tune to analog channel 3. Or, x-video. One of the three component jacks may serve dual purpose as a composite jack.

 

Be sure to set the TV to the correct input. If you use the COAX nake sure it is connected to the output connection on the STB and you may have to run the channel scan  on the TV.
