PS2/DVD to Small Television, What am I missing?

Recently bnought a small-ish 19 inch wide screen television to sit on my desk with my computer.

It has Audio (L/R) jacks[2 sets], a Single Video Jack, an S-Video Jack, Jack Y, Pb, and PR for component Video, a cable plug, and an HDMI plug.

I wanna hook up my DVDplayer, and my old PLaystation 2 to thsi little Television, I have bigger TV's, but I find myself watching television far more on my computer and most of my spare time at the same desk, and little time watching the other televisions.

I've run into the issue of apparnetly not have sufficient jacks however for the Video portion of both the DVD player and the PS2.

Seems that I can only pkug in one or the other to the video jack and the attached Audio jacks to it.

Am I missing something? Can I still use both?

I suppose I have thew attachments for the PS2 to be a regular DVD player. But I;d rather not use it for that. Personal taste.

My guess is that you are going to want to just use composite with your PS2 and then component with the DVD player.

There are two sets of audio jacks you say, does one go with the coposite/s-video and the other with component? Or is one set and audio-out?

When you switch the input source on the TV what different sources show up?

Here's the manual

Yes I know a Dynex isn't great. It didn't need to be spectacular to serve a small purpose

According to your manual S-video and composite share one set of audio inputs and the other set is for component.

Go to page 7 and look at the diagram, it tells you how to set it up.

So basically you cannot use s-video and composite at the same time, one of your sources should be component and the other either composite or s-video.

So with the stndard Red/white/yellow jack set up both the DVD player and PS2 come with. I'm kinda out of luck aren't I?

Have to suck it up and use the DVD player in the PS2, right?

Either that or buy component cables for either your DVD player or your PS2. Component will make it look better, I would recommend it even if you only had one device connected.

Regular Component cables: $3.74

PS2 component cables: $5.42
