Question about Onkyo HTR500 Receiver
Is it possible to hook up my laptop through my Onkyo receiver and have it display on my TV? I can't seem to figure it out.... Thanks!
Yes, if you use the S-Video output on your laptop to the input on the receiver, then another S-Video cable from the Monitor Out port on the receiver to an S-Video port on your TV. Then select the appropriate source on the TV and receiver.
Be reminded that this receiver will not convert the signal from S-Video to composite video (the yellow cable) nor from composite video to S-Video.
Also be reminded that S-Video will pass only video, not audio. You need a seperate cable to go from a 3.5mm headphone stereo jack to 2 RCA composite audio plugs.

Tips for a great answer:
To do the reset you need to turn the receiver on, then on the front panel of the receiver press and hold the "VCR/DVR" button while doing that press the "STANDBY/ON" button. You will see the word "Clear" in the display screen and the receiver will go into standby mode. PLEASE UNDERSTAND THAT YOU WILL LOSE ALL YOUR AUDIO & VIDEO ASSIGNMENTS ON THE RECEIVER PLUS YOU WILL LOSE ALL YOUR SPEAKER CONFIGURATIONS, SPEAKER DISTANCE AND ALL LEVEL CALIBRATION SETTINGS. YOU WILL ALSO LOSE ANY PROGRAMMED RADIO STATIONS IN MEMORY. Once the receiver goes into standby mode turn it back on and go thru the setup menu for all custom settings., Thanks, JT
