Re: video distortion

I have seen this a couple of times in my 12 years

Try a farite coil on the tv power cord

also try un plugging the cable line from the cable box or tv to see if a grounding issue occurs

to fix the grounding issue try putting a small wire on the case screws running the wire between the cable box and the stereo rcvr

Re: video distortion

Only thing I can suggest would be:
A. Look for any magnetic or other interference on any of the cables if there are bare wires somewhere.

B. Get a separate video switcher or run all your video to TV. If you are using component, the signal is a low quality anyways, but the same can happen to any type of connection

No video from AV1 channel connected to a Toshiba DVD player via Component to Sharp Aquos TV via HDMI. Audio is fine via Optical cable.

Usually you cannot mix and match sources and outputs. In other words, if you're using component to connect from DVD player to a receiver, you have to also use component to connect from receiver to TV. Input and output MUST be the same - both HDMI or both Component.

How to hookup all the units ,cable, vcr, dvd , tv.,and receiver

It all depends on what you have for inputs on TV really. Any video components should be hooked directly to TV via, best, HDMI, next, component. Component has great video but doesn't carry audio, for audio, you would have to use separate cable(s), digital optical being best. The best scenario would be to run cable/sat, dvr, etc, to TV then hook TV audio out, via digital optical, to reciever. You would use TV's menu to choose what you watch and, would have one audio out to reciever. Some, if not most recievers have video pass through but, it's not the best route and, you have more connections and more margin for error.

I have the receiver hooked up to a Sony TV via component video. When watching cable TV the colors are really off on the TV. However, while watching a video (DVD), the TV's picture is great. Is this a...

I don't know what kind of tv you have but, receivers can pass video along to the tv but, are not the best way to go. If you have the capability of running your video components dirctly to tv then sound out to receiver, you would get better results. Component video is great, as good as or, better than HDMI, the only advantage to HDMI is the audio but, digital optical for audio is great also. Component video cables can be tricky because you have to make sure the connectors are in all the way. If they are not inserted properly, you probably notice too much blue or green. While watching your cable, try twisting and pushing connectors and see if you notice any change in the color quality

My wii won't play video through my Yamaha RX-V465. The audio comes through OK. I have a normal signal video component cable and i have connected the receiver to the TV with a HDMI cable. i have tried...

This receiver doesn't support processing of video signal, only switching. This means that it can output only the same format of video. Only some more expensive models do upscaling from component/composite to HDMI out.

From HDMI out, you can output only signal that came via HDMI in 1-3. For component out, you can output only component in. The same for composite.

So in order to use wii through receiver to TV, you must connect receiver and TV also via the component cables.

Or other option is to connect component from wii directly to TV and connect only audio to receiver.

Make sure that the DVD player is connected into the correct inputs on the receiver and that the receiver also has the correct input selected to play. If your TV also has component video inputs it is best to connect the player directly to the TV. Otherwise, make sure you have the TV connected to the receiver via component video out.

ONKYO TX-SR606 Single output to TV

Hi there. for your receiver, the only time it can upconvert is when you go out as HDMI. In your current hookup (component out to tv) the signal from your cable (using a composite) will not be able to pass through the component cable. This means you either have to hook up your cable box using a component cable as well or add a composite cable (yellow) from monitor out of the receiver to the tv. Page 22 of the manual will show a diagram of the video signal flow. hope this helps.. ^_^

How to Connect HDMI Components with AVR 3805 as Hub

In reference to the comment you added to our chat session:

Just connect your receiver to your TV using the same cable your receiver is currently using to connect to your TV, be it Composite, S-Video, or Component. Just switch your TV to that input when you need to set-up something on the receiver.

No video signal on Yamaha HTR 5930

On , HTR-5930, composite inputs are routed only to composite outputs. The same happens to component input. You can't see video from V AUX if your TV is hooked-up on component output. Also, check if you connected correctly GREEN, BLUE AND RED on both receiver and TV SET.
