  1. I have a DVD recorder and a DVD/VHS combo player. The video from both players recently started becoming hazy at the same time, and a few days later the video from both players stopped displaying entirely (audio still plays fine). Cable TV through Color Stream is fine. I tried both players through each of the video inputs and with a few different AV cables, and each time I got audio but no video. I don't have a second TV, so haven't been able to test the players that way. It really looks like the TV is the problem though. Have you seen this before? I want be sure before buying a new TV. Thanks!

    This is an educated guess. Yes I think it's possible for all of one type of input to fail at once.

    Probably the only part of the circuit that's in triplicate is the jacks and the switching amplifier. The next step up, (decoder, amplifier), would be where the problem occurs, and there would only be one of these devices, for any given type of input..
