Question about Denon AVR-4800 Receiver

Problem with video signals through AVR-4800

Hi guys. Great service. Having some difficulties with video input/output. Here's the situation:

Have a dual DVD-VCR from Sony (new). Outputs are:

VCR: Video, left audio, right audio
DVD: Component out, coax digital audio out, left audio, right audio
(no S-Video or optical)

My Sony TV is connected to my Denon AVR-4800 via S-Video cable to the Monitor 1 out on the 4800.

I've connected the VCR video to the VCR video in on the 4800
I've connected the VCR audio to the VCR audio left/right in on the 4800
There are no problems with the audio for VCR when the 4800 has VCR as the selection

I've connected the DVD component outs (R/G/B) to the 4800's component in for DVD using monster cable component video cables. I've connected the DVD audio using the DVD digital coax cable and connecting it to the 4800's coax 1 RCA coax connector.

My TV/DBS setup is fine (S-video from my DirecTV receiver into the S-video TV/DBS in. TV displays fine and audio is fine.
Here are the problems:

1. When VCR is selected on the 4800, I do not have video going to my TV (which is tuned to Video 1 input). I have audio.

2. When DVD is selected on the 4800, I do not have video coming to the TV (routed through the 4800 from the R/G/B inputs and theoretically out through the S-Video Monitor 1 output), AND I do not have audio output through the digital coax.

I just do not know enough about the paths inside the 4800 to know what I can and cannot do. For example, is it even possible to route Component video into the 4800 then out through S-Video to the TV? Plus, why wouldn't the digital coax audio be outputting to the 4800?

Help! I'm stumped...

    The 4800 is designed to be a pre-out and video selector as well as an audio selector. Because it's worked as a go-between on a prior DVD that had an S-Video connection (a fact I neglected to mention on the post--sorry about that), I'm still stumped.

    We really just need to understand if, when sending video in through RGB to the 4800 if it can be route out through S-Video or if it must be routed out through RGB. Unfortunately my TV doesn't have RGB--only Cable, SVid and Video cable.

    Thoughts?

    Still need help on this. So far, no one has been able to provide assistance who knows the Denon AVR-4800. Thanks for any help you can provide!

Hi,

I am sorry to say that if you input s-video your unit only outputs throught the s-video jack. This also applies to video component. It says that on page 8 and 9 of the manual (if I understood it correctly).

    This probably explains why there is no video for the VCR. Is it outputting s-video to the receiver (I am guessing it's not)?

    I think Octagons right re switching from RGB input and having the Monitor on S Video

    see

    This unit’s S-jacks (input and output) and video pin jacks (input and output) have independent circuit structures, so that video signals input from

    the S-jacks are only output from the S-jack outputs and video signals input from the pin jacks are only output from the pin jack outputs.

    When connecting this unit with equipment that is equipped with S-jacks, keep the above point in mind and make connections according to the

    equipment’s instruction manuals.

    from manual...
    The signals input to the color difference (component) video jacks are not output from the VIDEO output jack (yellow) or the S-Video output jack.

    In addition, the video signals input to the VIDEO input (yellow) and S-Video input jacks are not output to the color difference (component) video

    jacks.

    try using cable with RCA jack in connecting your audio and video to your tv. do not use the s-video connection . locate the audio and video OUTPUT in your dvd player, connect the jack and the other end of the cable connect it to the audio and video INPUT of the tv correspondingly. Using your TV remote control find the right channel in the TV.

Denon 1312 receiver composite video inputs do not work.


I'm having the same problem with my Wii output. The manual for the Denon AVR-1312 says that analog video signals (i.e. component/composite outputs from the Wii) are not converted to digital video signals (i.e. HDMI output from the rcvr). I'm running only HDMI to a projector, so the video signal is essentially lost. The fix appears to be to run an additional composite cable all the way to the projector. Sounds like your fix is the same. No Wii tonight! :(

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!

Good luck

From the manual of your Denon page 41:

"Video Select -It is not possible to select HDMI input signals. • When playing HDMI video input signals, the analog video signal of another input source cannot be selected for the HDMI video output."

Blu Ray with Denon-AVR 4800 can't find if it will accept 1080i


These things are really complicated to get 1080i out of.Most of the time they will only produce 720..Its just one of denons way of making you by there most exspensive.I had the same amp and the same problem.I ask a service person at Denon and all they said is the best thing I can tell you is to up grade.So I went to Onkyo and there cheapest version was more powerful and pass and converted everything to 1080.Hope this helps you and have a great day..

No sound fom optical input


Do you have your TV hooked up, so you can see the AVR-4800 system menu on its screen (if not, see the manual). You need to go down to the digital input menu item where you associate each component with its input source, whether it is coax, optical 1, optical 2, ..., etc.

No component output on AVR-4306


This does not work... You can only upscale the video signal with 4306; meaning you can covert s-video, component video to HDMI but can not down-convert HDMI input (coming from your HD DVD player) to Component video output. Sorry that I could not give you a solution as this is the 4306's limitation (written on the 4306 manual.).
