Power up all components. Select the HDMI 1 input on the Denon amp, and the HDMI 1 input on the TV. Additionally, run the old analog cables between the cable box and the TV. If no picture, select the input on the TV that is associated with the analog input from the cable box. You should have a picture at this point - but it will be a standard definition type. Check the settings on the cable box to change the output from "A / V" to Digital on the HDMI jack - if present. You may have better luck unplugging power / replugging in the cable box first - or calling the cable company if you can't find settings for this. Once you have the output of the cable box to HDMI, select HDMI on the TV. If you still don't have it working - try bypassing the Denon and go directly into the TV from the cable box. Try it with BOTH HDMI cables. Also - try different inputs and out puts (HDMI 2, HDMI 3, etc.). Discard any HDMI cable that fails to show video and play audio.
HDMI1 on the receiver is an input not an output. Make sure your TV connected to HDMI MONITOR OUT. On HDMI setup, check if analog to HDMI convert is ON, Color Space set to YCbCr. If you have more problem refer to page 54 of the owner's manual.
Can't find the specs but i presume it's an analog NTSC set. You will need a converter to convert the new off air ATSC digital format and if you're on cable, unless they are still converting to analog, you'll need a converter there too. Some cable systems (Comcast being one) will require their own cable box to index the digital channels and convert to analog ch 3 or 4 for your TV.
The antenna must be hooked up to the converter box. The better the antenna, the better your reception will be.
Not everyone in the country will be in range of digital signals. Digital signals have a shorter range than analog signals do right now. It is possible (but unlikely) that you are not currently in range of any digital signals.
So make sure you are set up like this - Antenna--converter box--Television. Then scan for channels. You should still pick up any analog signals while the box is hooked up, you will just view them the same way you do now, by changing the TV station rather than the converter box station.
Seeing that you have a superior brand and not getting channels is a bummer. It may have to do with the setting, make sure you're set to cable rather antenna and then do a rescan. Btw, often times channels from an over the antenna is much clearer than from cable because cable tv has to compress the signal. If you're high in the air like the top floor of a building a cheap $10 will pull in great free digital channels. It helps to experiment and read the troubleshooting guide in your manual.
If your vcr has an ant. in and out to tv coax type jacks the signal should pass through when the vcr is off or in tv mode. Make sure tv is on the output channel of the converter box(usually ch 3 or 4). If your vcr is different please give more info.
