Question about Sony STR-DE685 Receiver
I recently purchased a psyclone component selector to hook up several gaming systems to my receiver. I have 3 systems hooked up to the selector. It has one output that goes to the receiver. Each of the game systems input to the selector is different. One uses component, one uses composite, one uses a composite with an S video cable. I have all of these outputs going to the reciever from the selector. I have hooked the selector to the receiver under "video 2" and I get sound for all three when each system is selected and video as well with the composite and s video cable system. How can I get the video to work on the others too? Can it only take one type of input at a time? I don't have s video outputs on two of the system so that's not an option for me. I don't have a manual for my receiver so if there is a way to select the type of input i don't know how. Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
The input on your television monitor must be set to view the composite with the S video cable. You will not be able to view the component video unless you also have component video outputs going from the input selector to the television. After you have done that, you will also have to change your television input from "video 2" to whatever input you used for the component video hookup.
