What Are Side Panel Jacks Used For?

Last Update Date : May 16. 2018

Generally, you would use the side panel jacks on your TV to connect those items that you do not want to attach to your TV permanently. Typical side panel jacks include a standard video in jack, standard left and right audio in jacks, and an S-Video in jack. You could use these jacks to attach a video game, a camcorder, and so on.

Note: If you attach the video output of a video game, camcorder, or other video source to either the standard video in or the S-Video input on the side panel, make sure you attach the audio out from the video game, camcorder, or video source to the audio input jacks on the side panel.
