Abstract (en)

[origin: WO2006083249A1] The disclosed embodiments relate to a system and method for decoding video signals. A video unit (10) may comprise a detection circuit (16) coupled to a luminance input jack (36), a red color difference input jack (38), and a blue color difference input jack (40), the detection circuit (18) adapted to detect a sync signal portion of a video signal received by the video unit (10); and a video processor (14) coupled to the detection circuit (16), the video processor (14) adapted to decode the video signal as a component video signal if the detection circuit (16) detects that the sync signal portion is being received through the luminance input jack (36). The method may comprise the acts of configuring the video unit (10) to detect a sync signal portion of a video signal received by the video unit (10) and configuring the video unit (10) to decode the video signal as a component video signal if the sync signal portion is detected as being received through a luminance input jack (36).
