Bought a new Tv.  Old one had composite (? Red/yellow/white) cables to go to the DVD player.  New one has conmponent(red/green/blue).  Can the old style cables be used? 

DVD player does have r/g/b cable hookups as well as r/y/w.  found component cables for <$5 on amazon, but a couple days for shipping before there'd would be anything other than basic broadcast channels ( all three! That I get there...)

The RCA cables (r/w/y) are combined audio/video. Red = right channel audio, white = left channel audio, yellow = video. Component cables replace the yellow cable, providing a richer picture. You can use the RCA cables in place of the component cables, but will not get the full benefit of higher video quality (as long as you match the colors on both pieces of equipment). You will also need another set of cables for the audio.

(I am glad GreenHall asked the question because I have the same problem.)

Does this mean you use the red/green/blue cable and the red and white cable (and just let the yellow piece hang)?

New question:

My daughter got a goldfish tank for Christmas.  It came with an electric filter.  The instructions do not say if it is supposed to run 24/7 or just for daylight hours or what.

Do I run the filter 24/7?

sevenday:
Goldfish are dirty, dirty fishies.  24/7 I think is the intended use.

That's what I thought but I wanted to check.  We actually didn't even put in the filter for the first 10 days and, whew!, did the tank stink after only that short amount of time.  Note to self:  clean the tank at least once a week.  And keep that filter on!

keep that filter on 24/7. clean tank weekly. replace 1/2 a tank of water weekly (use the removed water on the garden or your pot pants after diluting . It makes a great fertiser)
