I have my DBS tuner connected to the "DBS (VCR1) In" via component cables. When I first setup the video input jacks (page 38 of the LVT1198-002A manual) it gave me the "Video in DBS" option. I have since messed up this setting and it now only gives me the "Video in VCR1" option. How do I get the receiver to offer the "Video in DBS" option again as I do not want to use the "VCR1" button to watch DBS.

Your reciever has three digital optical inputs so, what it comes down to is how many thing do you want to hook up and what input/otput do you have on your TV. Best case scenario would be to hook your cable box directly to your TV Via HDMI out, if you have HD, on your cable box to Sat/cable input on your TV. Next best would be using componenet cables for video and digital optical for audio. Last would be RCA(yellow, white and red, from Cable box to TV input. Then, you would connect your TV to receiver via(best) digital optical, or RCA. You can try to patch the video through the reciever using component or RCA to TV/DBS on receiver then out to TV but. alot of times you will lose the video in the transfer and it uses more cables, thus more margiin for error. You would set your TV menu to cable/sat and your reciever to which ever input you choose.
Just fixed this myself - made my head hurt to figure out.
1. Switch to a setting (say DVD).
2. Watch the AVR screen as it switches. You'll see the audio and video settings. For example, Audio = DVD, Video = DVD
(Mine showed Audio = DVD, Video = DBS even though is was set correctly using the SETUP for audio and video)3. Under the round control knob on the left, push the (tiny) Video Select button.
4. Turn control know to choose the correct video source
Your system should work right. Mine did.
HDMI signal from DVD can not be down converted to analog component signal.
Connect your new DVD to a component input 1..4. Make sure that component input assigned to desired input (dvd/vcr/sat/) (setup - input setup - input - component assign - component x etc). Connect coax output of DVD to coax x input of the receiver and assign it (setup- input setup - "input" - digital assign ..). Probably you need to setup DVD output resolution to 720i or 720p in dvd setup menu.
I realize you may have already doubled checked but make sure you follow this from the manual:
If the satellite tuner / cable box is equipped with an S video output
terminal, connect it to the S VIDEO 3 (or 4) IN terminal with an S
video cable. If it does not have an S video output terminal, connect
its video output terminal to the VIDEO 3 (or 4) IN terminal using an
RCA-type video connection cable. You do not need to connect to
both the S VIDEO 3 (or 4) IN and VIDEO 3 (or 4) IN terminals. If
the satellite tuner or television has component video outputs,
connect them to one of the COMPONENT VIDEO INPUT jacks.
With the initial settings of the TX-DS898, the VIDEO 3 and
VIDEO 4 input sources are set for the COMPONENT VIDEO
INPUT 2 jack.
If the video connection is made at COMPONENT VIDEO INPUT
1, this must be changed at the Setup menu: Input Setup → Video
Setup → Component Video (see page 35).
Using an RCA-type audio connection cable, connect the audio
output terminal on the satellite tuner or television to the same
VIDEO 3 (or 4) IN audio jacks on the TX-DS898. Make sure that
you properly connect the left channel to the L jack and the right
channel to the R jack.
If the device has a digital output jack as well, be sure to also connect
it to either a DIGITAL INPUT (COAXIAL) or DIGITAL INPUT
(OPTICAL) jack on the TX-DS898 depending on the device.
With the initial settings of the TX-DS898, the VIDEO 3 input source
is set for digital input at the OPTICAL 3 jack, and the VIDEO 4
input source is set for digital input at the OPTICAL 4 jack.
If the digital connection is made at a different jack, this must be changed
at the Setup menu: Input Setup → Digital Setup (see page 33).
Most likely the VCR1 input in the Denon is set to a digital input, you will need to go into the setup for the VCR1 input and make sure that NONE is selected for the digital audio input. Also - make sure you did not plug the Red/White audio cables from the Wii, in to the VCR OUT, instead of IN.
How do I connect direct tv to denon and then get sound If the RCA TV has HDMI input connect as follows: 1.Connect an HDMI cable from the Directv box to an HDMI input on the Denon. 2.Connect an HDMI cable from the HDMI out-put on the Denon to the RCA TV 3.Select input the DirecTV is connected to at the Denon, at TV select HDMI input Denon is connected to TV. 4.On front of denon press the input mode button to select auto If the RCA TV has Component input (Green,Red,Blue) connect as follows: 5.Connect Component Video and Audio cables from the Directv box to a Component Video and Audio input on the Denon (TV, DBS,VCR). 6.Connect a Component Video cable from the Denon to the RCA TV Component Video input. 7.Select input the DirecTV is connected to at the Denon, at TV select component input Denon is connected to TV.
8.On front of denon press the input mode button to select aut
If the RCA TV has Composite input (Yellow) connect as follows: 9.Connect Composite Video and Audio cables from the Directv box to a Composite Video and Audio input on the Denon (TV, DBS,VCR). 10.Connect a Composite Video cable from the Denon to the RCA TV Compositet Video input.
11.Select input the DirecTV is connected to at the Denon, at TV select composite input Denon is connected to TV. On front of denon press the input mode button to select auto
TV has Component input (Green,Red,Blue) connect as follows: 1.Connect Component Video and Audio cables from the Cable box, PS3, DVD or Sat box to thea Component Video and Audio input on the Denon (TV/DBS, DBS,VCR1 VRS2, VDP or DVD). 2.Connect a Component Video cable from the Denon to the TV Component Video input. 3. If you do not have a cable or sat box and have a cable from the wall to the TV you must take an RCA(Red&White) audio out of the TV to an input listed in #1
You CAN record one channel and watch another with satellite service, but it would require two separate DBS receivers. The issue is that all satellite broadcasting is encrypted until it hits the receiver, which decodes it and transmits it outward toward your other AV devices. If it weren't for the receiver, connecting the coax cable to your other devices and trying to tune channels with them would yield no signal and possibly much frustration. You would need to split the signal into each receiver and have one connected to the television via one input and the other to the recorder then to the TV via another input.
With cable, you can split the signal without having to have two boxes - this way the QAM tuner in the cable box is still capable of tuning channels while the recorder can tuner basic cable channels for recording separately. You can also have the cable box connected to the recorder via composite so that you can record premium stations on a DVD recorder input mode anytime you like - but you would have to be watching that channel at the same time unless the DVD recorder had a pass-through RF signal (rather than a composite clone) - meaning you could also use coaxial to your television from the recorder and tune channels separately on your television while the recorder is recording one channel.
A lot of what-ifs there, but it is all quite possible.
