Denon AVR-1705 Missing Video Functions?

I've just tried routing my DVD Player's video output through my Denon AVR-1705 and no matter what I do, I can't get a video signal on my TV.

When I tried setting the "Video Input Mode" in the device setup, I was surprised to see that it was missing. Instead of having settings: "19 DVD", "20 TV" and "21 VCR", my AVR-1705 has "19 AUTOSURR." (?!)

I should also mention that I wired the DVD both as S-Video and as Video (yellow jack) to the DVD input on the unit. And that I wired my TV to the Component output (Monitor).

Why are the video settings missing from the setup? Could this explain why I can't get the unit to route video to my TV?

Thanks for any help you can offer!

I think I have the same problem. Has anyone found a solution to this. So far what I have figured out is that it does not upscale. So its likely that to have component out, you need component in. But I don't see any video setting options as well. I have a feeling that somehow Denon was selling an AVR w/o the video options turned on or for some reason the circuitry has switched off.

Hello,

What you need to do is connect all your devices to the Denon Using the best connections (Yellow Video=OK, S-Video=good, Component green-red-blue=better and HDMI=best. if you do not have a DVD that upconverts to 1080i or p when using HDMI, I would use component cables where available from your devices to the Denon other wise use the next best connection available and if connecting digital audio make a chart of all connection so you can setup everything when your ready for programming the Denon

I get sound from my dvd player when I hit dvd on the remote but I see the picture from the tv


you need to change the input on the tv to whatever input your dvd is plugged into. an alternative is to use your denen avr as your video changer as well. most surround sound recievers will have a vidoe input as well as a vidoe output. if you route your cable right when you switch between your dvd and tv signal on the Denon, you dont have to change inputs on the tv. hope that helps.

I have a Denon AVR 1705 and can get a tv picture and no sound or sound with no picture. Is there a setting or selection that I am missing to have both.


Sounds like the sound inputs have been reassigned to another input-

You'll ideally need the instructions to give a fuller idea of how you adjust these and all the options it gives you

Can you tell me what are the functions of the two hdmi inputs, and the one hdmi output ,as my cable only works via the tv to the dvd player and a coax from dvd to the coax on avr, so hdmi on avr is...


Let's treat this as TWO functions - audio and video.

Your best video would be HDMI output (audio & video) from the cable box and EACH other video source (BD/DVD) directly to your TV and receiver. But, I'd still WATCH the video from the direct TV connection. The fewer intervening cables and electronics, the better.

Your best audio performance will come directly from each multichannel source via a digital (HDMI, coaxial or optical) cable to the receiver. I would LISTEN to audio through the receiver for best quality.

See a trend here? TV's best at video; receiver is the master of audio.
And neither one adds much by handling the other. Usually the opposite.

You mention coax. Do you mean coaxial digital audio????? As coax is also shorthand for the thick black cable bringing video to most cable boxes, connecting antennae to TV's and such.

You don't actually define what the problem is. Only YOU can be the judge of what 'better' is.

There are a multitude of (mis)settings you should master before declaring a hardware problem. I'd dive into the manual.

Hi
The settings on many DVD players and TVs may need to be set to indicate the type of input/output being used(RGB vs YUV/YPbPr, and if set wrong the image may not be properly displayed. Try Look for such settings in your TV and/or Amp!

Denon AVR 1705-no audio on TV


I have had the same problem and was told that it is a "board" inside. Essentially it has lost the surround sound ability and can only play things in Direct/Stereo. Mine is just over 2 years and I originally thought my kids had hit a button on the thing causing the issue...ended up paying $100 to trouble shoot it and confirm that it is internal and more expensive to fix than replace. Can't say that I will be buying a Denon again.

No sound from my Denon AVR-1707


I think that's something in SOUND SETUP menu incorrect. Try to redo it again.
