I can't get other components to work. I running a HDMI cable from my cable box to the receiver. I'm trying to hook up an analog DVD player using an S-Video cable. Since I'm using a HDMI cable for the cable box, do I have to use a HDMI cable to hookup my DVD?

Re: Video Inputs for Denon AVR 589
Manual is here: http://www.usa.denon.com/AVR-589-OM-E_006.pdf
Note on page 11 says "because video signals are out put from the AVR-589's monitor output terminal IN THE SAME FORMAT AS THE VIDEO SIGNALS, THE MONITOR OUTPUT TERMINAL SHOULD BE THE SAME TYPE AS THE TERMINAL USED FOR INPUT."
You cannot mix the HDMI with the others. You must therefore use the same on DVD and Cable box.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

Personally I would use an RCA cable and hook up the AVR.
((RCA out of TV to AVR audio in))
((cable box HDMI cable output to TV HDMI Input1))
(As far as the AppleTv I would use a separate HDMI Input2)
If your AVR has a dvd or blue ray player Hook up a
HDMI cable out to another Input HDMI3 of the TV
using separate inputs on the tv will allow your surround system to be
used on all modes(CABLE,DVD/BLUERAY,APPLETV)
Long and painful answer!!! However, in the end, you need to bypass HDMI thru your receiver and go direct to the TV. Connect Digital Coaxial or Optical for audio to your receiver. Your version of HDMI in your receiver is not compatable with today's HDMI version. Yours is 1.1a and the current version is 1.3b going to 1.4. If you want detailed info as to "why", just google "HDMI 1.1 problems" you can read for hours! Sorry for the bad news! However, it is what it is. Hope this helps. If you need further help with setup, post a comment and I can give you further help.
hello i believe your problem is that you are trying to downconvert from hdmi to component connections and Denon receivers will not do that.
I have a 4310 and I know it will UPconvert from an analog signal to HDMI but won't do it the other way around.
you may have to use component inputs for all your equipment. You will also have to go into the receivers menu and designate which signal is being used for each component as it won't auto select between analog and digital signals when it comes to video.
If you are video switching through the Denon, you may need to make sure the inputs (analog, composite) are the same as the outputs. For example, you might have component out to the monitor, but composite in from the Wii. I don't believe the 1708 can do the upconversion. Try hooking up a yellow RCA cable from video out to the TV.
I want to clairify you install, you sat you have I an HDMI cable running from the Time Warner Cable box to the AVR-589, going in to the TV/CBL input. From the Denon AVR-589, I have an HDMI cable running from the output to my Toshiba RV525U television.
Check the connection at the TV, if as you indicated above you have an HDMI cable from the HDMI out from the Denon to an HDMI output on the TV, if this is the case you need to have that HDMI cable plugged into an input on the TV not an output
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
The Denon does not down scale you can not plug a DVD or other device in to the Denon using HDMI and have it come out Component, if your projector only has Component video inputs you must use Component video connections from the DVD and Cable box to the Denon
the avr-588 apparently cannot carry sound via hdmi - don't know why; just what i found out from the geek squad at best buy; solved the problem by connecting optical cable from cable box to receiver; be sure to change the input on the receiver for opt-2 (system setup >2 inputs) to correlate with tv
