I'm more surprised about 3D TVs dying in the marketplace, 3D-anything seems to come and go in fads.

Any idea if the higher end LED and OLED TVs still have component inputs and other inputs besides HDMI? I know the many of the lower end ones don't, they are HDMI only.

That's fine if everything you want to connect is HDMI, but some older items, like video game systems, didn't have HDMI and need the old red/white/yellow RCA jacks.

I know using a stereo receiver fixes that issue, or should.

Another trick I've read about is using a VCR in between an older video game system and the TV. Sometimes those old VCRs will have inputs on the back that newer TVs do not, so as long as you can connect the VCR to the TV, you're in business.
