Usually a tv that doesn't "see" video on the S-video will not even "switch" to it.  It just goes to the next Svideo, RCA etc..  
Make sure your cable is not damaged. (on both ends) Does the svideo source and svideo cable work with another tv or video device?
31GT740 Manual From the Manual:   " WHO•INPUT In TV mode, press WHO•INPUT to toggle through the available Video Input channels (VID/SVID and the current channel). In SAT mode, press to select available channel lists.
Using the WHO•INPUT Button Use the WHO•INPUT button to toggle through the available input sources (VID and the current channel) and view the content from the component you have connected to the TV. 1. Press TV to place the remote in TV mode. Make sure that the content from the component is turned ON. 2. Press WHO•INPUT to tune to the available input source and view the component. 3. Press WHO•INPUT again to tune back to the channel you were previously watching.  "

I finally had a chance to see if my laptop would stream to another screen and it did. The cable is brand new so I suspect it works. I think it is my TV.

How to get OSD on TV for a Pioneer Receiver

OSD for on your TV for a Pioneer Receiver setup menu. (It doesn’t matter what make your TV is).

Connect the MONITOR OUT video jack on the receiver to a video input on your TV. Use a standard RCA video cable to the composite video jack.

Turn your TV on and put your TV onto AV3. Turn your receiver on, then on your remote control push the receiver button (this is not the on/off button, there is another button with receiver written on it) then push the setup button on your remote control. You should get the OSD menu on your TV for the settings for your receiver.

I need to know how to program this tv so that the cable will come in. It used to work but unknown buttons were pushed on the remote and now the cable will not work on this tv.

Somebody probably hit one of the input buttons and changed the input. Try hitting input and going through the different options. Give each one a few seconds and see if the cable comes back on.

Having trouble getting tv set up. It has on the screan No Signal

When a TV says "no signal" it means it cannot find a video sync present on the input which is currently selected. Knowing your TV Manufacturer and model would help tremendously, as would knowing what it is hooked up to.
For starters, it could be one of a few things:
  • It is selected to an input to which there is no source connected [SOLUTION] make sure the TV is set to view the correct input (INPUT or SOURCE) button.
  • The cable between the source and the TV is bad, or the plugs are not properly seated at both ends of the cable [SOLUTION] Make sure that BOTH ends of the cable are pushed all the way in, and securely seated. If that doesn't work, try replacing the cable with a different one
  • You have the cables connected incorrectly (for example, a composite video signal (yellow) will fit into a left or right audio connector (red or white). If you are plugging in by reaching around but can't see, this could be a problem. I have also seen people plug video inputs into outputs (many TVs have a video loop out, so if you plug something IN to that you aren't going to get picture. [SOLUTION] Make sure you physically inspect the inputs on the TV and outputs on the source
  • It is trying to use it's internal tuner (if it has a digital tuner) and there is no cable or antenna feed attached [SOLUTION] make sure the TV is set to view the correct input (INPUT or SOURCE) button.
  • The source you are trying to watch (DVD player, etc) is not turned on [SOLUTION] verify that the source is plugged in and outputting video
  • The TV is defective. [SOLUTION] take it back . . . its a lemon.

Saying that there is no signal for cable even though cable is plugged in

I can give you a couple things to try, but you may need to provide more info like the model of the TV. New or old TV. New install? What was old TV; digital or tube? What kind of cable?

Touch the TV/VCR button or input button on the remote. Make sure you select the input option that matches your input. For example, my cable comes thru a multi cable box and happens to be "video 4".

Did you run the automatic search for channels?

DVD has no color

Check your remote for a button that says, Progressive Scan, or PSCAN. Push it and then play your movie. Should work. Worked for ours. Good luck.
