No HDMI input on your TV?

Manhattan boxes are designed for HD, which requires HDMI. However, if you have an older TV that doesn’t have HDMI, our boxes can almost certainly be connected to your TV using an AV lead (not included). Your TV simply needs either of these inputs:

Supported Analog AV Inputs

⚠ Using a third party cable

You can purchase the 3.5mm 4-pole Minijack to RCA AV cable from third parties. However, as there is no standard for the 4-pole Minijack, please be aware of the following:

  • The yellow, white and red cables may be mixed up when used with your Manhattan box. Normally the yellow cable carries the video signal, the red cable carries the right audio channel and the white cable carries the left audio channel. You might need to experiment to find out which is which when using a third party cable.
  • Please check the length of the 3.5mm 4-pole Minijack plug (see below). The correct size of the plug is 14mm. Connecting with an incorrect plug size, for example with the 17mm type (also available), will not work and may damage the AV socket on your Manhattan T1.
