Question about Onkyo TX-DS656 Receiver
Components directly to the monitor.... neither the video RCA jacks or the S cable outs will work...; audio seems to be fine and I can get the CD player to still play through it beautifully.... also the am/FM has never been satisfactory. I suspect some burned boards or something like that going on... wonder if it is economical to repair ???
I am conviced that there is some failure in the unit, so without repair/replacing I rerouted my audio out from my monitor back to the audio IN jacks on the DS656 and can continue to use it until further failure.

First, you must figure out If your TV has component video inputs. This is a set of five cables (red, blue and green for video and red and white for audio) and will give you the best picture on an hdtv
Then, If your TV does not have the component video cables, you will be using the red white and yellow composite yellows the system came with. A very simple connection.
Last, If your TV does have the component video inputs, you will need to buy a set of the Nintendo Wii Component Video cables from Walmart, Target or any other gaming store. These will enable widescreen view and the best picture quality.
To connect your DVD player, you need to located the composite video inputs and s-video. Composite video is a yellow, female RCA jack, normally found next to two audio jacks, one red, the other white. The three jacks together provide an interface for audiovisual connections. The red RCA jack connects the right channel of a stereo system, while the white RCA jack connects the left. The yellow composite video jack rounds out the set.
When playing the Wii, you will need to be on the correct video input "Component"
When playing the DVD, you will be on "Composite/Svideo."
