I have an RX-V463 and can connect with composite and HDMI but when I connect using component (VCR and WII), I only get audio (no video). I can connect these conponents to my sony LCD directly
with no problem and the manual is no help (been through all of the on screen menus as well)

This receiver doesn't support processing of video signal, only switching. This means that it can output only the same format of video. Only some more expensive models do upscaling from component/composite to HDMI out.
From HDMI out, you can output only signal that came via HDMI in 1-3. For component out, you can output only component in. The same for composite.
So in order to use wii through receiver to TV, you must connect receiver and TV also via the component cables.
Or other option is to connect component from wii directly to TV and connect only audio to receiver.
Hi, If your xbox has HDMI connector then you HDMI cable to connect it to the receiver and another HDMI cable to connect receiver to the TV. Receiver should support both video and audio over HDMI. If your xbox doesn't have HDMI, connect the video directly to your TV using whatever connector/cable is available (in terms of quality from best to worst: HDMI, component, s-video/scart, composite). Then connect audio to the receiver via optical spdif cable.
Your post indicates the use of a receiver. If you are in fact using a receiver, make sure you have a "video out" connection from the receiver to your television. Then make sure you have the correct input selection on the receiver, and on the TV.
"I am also having difficulties in try to display the yamaha set up menu on the tv." According to the manual the display menu for TV will not work with HDMI hook up. I also have a Panasonic HD TV and can't get TV sound through my Yamaha AVR on "TV Sound" mode. Trying to use HDMI cable for this also. Do I need a digital optical cable or do I not have something set right?
Just a thought, but, how do you have your TV/Monitor hooked up to the Yamaha unit? If your only connection between the receiver the and the TV/Monitor is an HDMI cable, and you are plugging your WII into the front v-aux jack using composite video, the receiver will have no way to send the video signal to the TV/Monitor. The receiver upconverts all composite video and S-video signals to component video signals. This means that if you only have an HDMI connection between the receiver and the TV/Monitor, you will also need to establish a second, component video connection between the receiver and TV/Monitor to handle the upconverted WII video signal. You will probably also need to switch your TV/Monitor to use that input when you are using the WII.
Of course, if you already knew this and have it set up that way, this answer won't help you at all!
