Question about Adcom GTP-860II
I decided to switch my video cabling from S-Video to Component. Went out and bought 3 sets of cabling (Monster, if it matters). The Adcom has component video inputs for Video 1 and Video 2, and a Component Video Out. I wired it like this:
Video 1 - S-Video Input from Dish Receiver (no Component Video jacks there)
Video 2 - Audio into normal RCA jacks, Component Video into appropriate jacks
Component Video Out - Cabled to back of TV
The results? Not pretty. By process of elimination, determined this is what is happening. Once the Video Out cables are in, the unit ignores any composite or s-video input. Which means no picture on video one from Dish (audio is there, though), but video on one is from... video 2 - the DVD player. On Video 2, there is both sound AND picture from the DVD player, but it is very dark. Checked DVD settings, and found nothing I could change to alter this.
I'm thinking the switching for the component video jacks is fried - have been through all the menus, and found no settings I could change. I don't really want to yank the unit from the rack, since it is literally the heart of the system. I have an old Sony TA-E9000ES (completely lacking in component video jacks) I may have to bring off the bend whilst the Adcom goes to the doctor.
Any suggestions/idea's (not holding my breath for a quick fix here) would be greatly appreciated.
I have had this problem in the Field with a Client. I had fixed it by going into the ADCOM menu and Resetting ALL of the Inputs and output for the Devices. You have to select everything you need, then exit out of the Menu, SHUT OFF the ADCOM, WAIT about 10 secs, then turn it back on. Or Else it Does Not SAVE Properly! Weird. If you can not see the Menu on the TV Screen then try to hook up a Composite (Yellow) cable from the ADCOM to the TV and select the TV input to make the Changes. I really hope this helps out it sounds like an Evasive problem which is hard not being in front of the Equipment!
