this receiver will only up covert video to component video output.
so if you hook up something with component or S-video it will output video via component video, the only way to send a signal to the TV with HDMI is to hook up everything to the receiver using HDMI.
If you want to hook it up the way you have it, you will need to move up to the Rx-V663 model, it will accepted any type of video and send it to the TV via HDMI.
You should tell the salesmen to learn there product line or leave there job and make room for someone who cares. lol
Hi. Just bought this yesterday and went by what they told me at the store on hooking up. I used component cables from my dvd player to the receiver, s video cable from the satellite box to the receiver, and then came out of the receiver with HDMI cable to the t.v. I have sound with the optical cables on each and it works, but no picture. Any help is appreciated. Thanks.
