My Pi (1 version B, running OpenELEC and Raspian installed via NOOBS) works like a charm via HDMI (mind you, I also happen to use an HDMI to DVI adapter and I have no problems with that). But I cannot get any kind of video signal when using the yellow video cable. I set the tv to A/V, get a black screen, power up the Pi, the screen stays black. Does not even blink.
I tried to connect the yellow cable to the yellow adapter on my tv (works to display pictures from my Canon camera) and I have a black screen. I tried to connect the yellow cable to a scart adapter and with that to the scart input of my TV and still get a black screen. I tried this on two tvs - always black.
I also tried to change PAL and NTSC on the newer TV: still black.
Pressing "3" at boot won't help.
(All of this from a freshly powered up RasPi without HDMI cable). Right now I have hooked up the hdmi output to my Samsung monitor - I can get picture and video, and the analog output to my TV (yellow to yellow). TV is black.
In Openelec I have changed video resolution from 1280x1024 of the Samsung monitor to "desktop", thinking that maybe the tv was trying to eat more than it could chew, but... I do not get the boot screen either. Shouldn't I be at least seeing that?
I want to stress that I get absolutely nothing on screen. It's not black and white video. It's utter darkness.
Can someone shed some light on this?
