Connecting Multiple AV devices to Samsung Plasma TV

Specs: Windows XP
hi
i recently purchased Samsung Plasma Model # PS43D450. Its a series 4+ TV, having following Input sources options available ; TV , AV , Component1 , Component2, PC, HDMI1, DV1, HDMI2, USB .
The devices I have are a TV connection , Sony DVD Player, XBox, Digital Satellite SetTop Box.

The TV connection is no issue, as its plugged into the single RF jack.

Now my other 3 devices ( Sony DVD, XBox, and Satellite STB ) all have AV cables connections ( 2 audio and 1 Video ).

On one pair of AV Connection, I can connect any of the above three and they work correctly. But if I connect any other on the other pair, I get video without any colors .

Please advise, what wrong am I doing ? Or do I need to get some external device for these connections. Note that I do not have HDMI cable for any device at the moment.


Regards.

Omar

My first wish is that I be able to connect my mentioned devices directly at the same time to my TV .
However, if its not possible, then I will look for something as u mentioned above.

Well I think the setup I have is somewhat similar. I have DirecTV plugged into the input of my Divx Player. I also have the Divx player output plugged into a VCR/DVD player-recorder which has 2 external inputs (E1 & E2). With it I can record or play from Divx or DirectTV to VHS or DVD. Also formerly had an XBox plugged into the 2nd input of the VCR/DVD player. Of course all are standard AV (RCA) jacks and the output from the VCR/DVD to the TV is standard cable (RG-59). Depending on what I wanted to do (watch/record DirecTV, watch/record Divx, watch DVD/VHS, or play XBox games), the appropriate device(s) had to be on and the appropriate E1 or E2 of the DVD/VHS enabled. It actually sounds much more complicated that it really is.
