Trying to use the s-video input to display my computer screen on my tv (to watch movies and such). I have an old tube tv and a panasonic sa-he75 receiver for my dvd and tape player. However, I plug in the s-video cable, reset my computer and tell it to mirror images from my monitor onto the tv and the computer recognizes it but nothing shows on the tv monitor?? i tried all display channels... any advise??

Re: S video input not putting out :)
To get the s-video to work you cannot have a component or rca video input while using the s-video for input to the tv
if it is still not working then you may have a problem internally and it will need testing to find the culprit

Usually when I hear of solid colors that display on a TV, my first solution would be to change the cable. We know your DVD player is working as you connected it straight to your TV and you report no problems. I assume you are using a composite cable (red, white, and yellow) Red and White being the Audio and Yellow your video.
But since your player works...and your tv works under the same input, then the only other issue would be the output cable from the receiver or the actual composite input or output connector is faulty.
try a video game system in place of the dvd player through your receiver..if it happens again, then change the receiver's output cable...if it still persists then your reciever's output connector is faulty.
As you've found from looking at the manual, the USB connector on the TV is only for installing software updates to the set. It's not a source input that you can send movies and music over, so the correct answer to your question is "you can't". At least not directly.
While you can't plug a USB device containing programs directly into the TV, you can use a computer as a program source. The TV has a VGA connector (Input 4) for video from the computer, and an audio input jack for connecting the computer's headphone output. So what you could do is plug your USB device into a laptop computer and connect the computer to the TV. The computer would be doing the actual playback of the programming on the USB device (using Windows Media Player, Winamp or your other player of choice), while the TV acts only as a display device. The manual explains how to select the computer input and adjust the TV resolution.
Yes you can get simulated 5.1 surround sound from your TV as well as radio. Just switch the JVC surround mode to Pro Logic II movies or music In some systems it will display only PLII. Just connect the TV audio out to the JVC Aux input at the back ( red and white sockets ).
hi, try using the audio inputs for something that generally doesnt have video associated with it, like cd or sacd. do you have a headphone to rca adaptor you can use from the computer to the cd input (bottom row). try this and see if the sound quality is good enough for your purposes. music and video games will be pretty good, but movies may not be nearly as good. if you are trying to send video through the receiver from the computer, you might have to bypass video and send it straight to the vga input on the tv. you can still run audio though the receiver.
hope this helps!
Possible causes & solutions, in order of simplicity: 1. Wrong input selected on TV - Reconfirm you have selected the input corresponding to the receiver's MON. OUT connection, e.g., component video, S-video. 2. Wrong output set on receiver - Reconfirm you haven't previously selected an output on the receiver that is unavailable on your TV, e.g., on some receivers, HDMI cannot be used for on-screen display. The front panel may show the setting as a backup for no on-screen display. If not, you may have to reset the receiver to factory defaults -- find out how to do this in the manual. 3. For component video or HDMI only -- Output signal from receiver may be set to a mode that the TV cannot process, e.g. 720p for a TV with only 480i/480p/1080i capability. 4. If the receiver is a high-end model with "Pure Direct" or similar settings that have been selected, the video circuitry and possibly also the OSD may be unavailable. Try switching to a normal setting or another input. By the way, the usual term for the menus from an AV receiver is "on-screen display (OSD)" -- not "GUI (graphical user interface)," which is more appropriate for computers or cell phones.
Greetings ! Hopefully you followed the instructions on page 18 - 20 of the Yamaha manual... then set the Flat screen or monitor to one of the two inputs that you view movies or dvd's on . I would try it first without HDMI cables as even the book states some monitors do not accept or see hdmi. try it with the dvd cables.
You have to follow the book carefully as I have the same system . Its a complicated system and I was informed , "a lot of people do not know how to set the system up and end up returning a perfect system..." from the Geek squad from Best Buy. Just follow carefully the manual.
Check your blu-ray connection. Is the HDMI cable going from the player to the receiver, then another HDMI cable going from the receiver to the television? What about your TV input? Is there a cable going from the cable converter box to the receiver's input?
