    Just got back with the apple A/V kit and I cant get the color to work on the TV screen. Do I need all the connections made? (2-way connector, 3-way connector and the usb power?) I am thinking that things arent plugged in correctly- any help?

    Is it a color Tv? (Stupid question, i know)

    Make sure the colors match up when you stick in the connectors.

    I have no matching colors at all. My Tv's only have Y,R,W. I can get video when I plug the green into the yellow ( no color ) and sound when I plug the 2way connector into the appropriate R and W slots.
    Yup they are color....
    My xbox 360 has the same color scheme and plugs into the TV and works just fine!? ( in the same ports )

    hmm. I guess its because you are putting component cables into composite slots. Only thing I can say is update your tv.
