Question about Pioneer VSX-816-K/S Receiver
I was having trouble getting analog video inputs to output through the receiver via HD component video (inputs with HD component video had no problem). Realizing the receiver may not be sampling the analog video port, I used s-video cables to connect the DVD player and Tivo -- but the problem still persists: no problem with sound, or video from component inputs, but I can't get a video signal from DVD player or Tivo (which only have analog and S-video ports)
Receivers generally cannot or will not convert from one input type to a different output. That's not to say there may not be some high end models around that do that.
I have this receiver and have it setup as follows. Monitor out Component, S-Video, and the Composite video channel (since I have surround sound I have no interest in getting audio to the TV since I keep its speakers off anyways) to their different inputs on the TV. Warning on some TV's if you plug in S-Video you cannot then use composite on that same input channel as it will override and disable the composite. Then you only need to choose the appropriate input on the TV when you switch sources. In my case Tivo is S-Video, DVD is component, and most of my older video games and VCR are composite.
Having a TV that allows you to change the labels for the input channels is helpful with teaching others that may be less adept, or a snazzy remote that you can program to do everything at once.
