Question about Onkyo TX-DS787 Receiver
I have owned my tx-ds787 for about 8 years now and I just realized it has 2 component video inputs and 1 output. My TV only has 1 input so Im trying to find a way to connect 2 HD devices to my TV so I dont need to keep un plugging 1 to use the other. Im assuming I can connect my HD sat. box and HD dvd player in the two inputs on the onkyo using component cables and use the output to go to my TV? This is how I have it currently hooked up but IM getting no picture as of yet. Is there something I need to do in the setup of the onkyo to tell it im doing this or should I just have picture automatically if it's connected properly? Thank you for your help, Jon
Yes, switch to the video input that you are trying to configure (i.e. video 1-4). Press the menu button on the receiver or the remote and cycle to video settings. There should be a setting that says "video output" or "output" - set that to component. You may also have to configure the Input for that particular setting. For instance, if you have an HD tivo going into component 2 but you want it to be Video 1. Select Video 1, hit the menu button and scroll to video setup. Select video input setup and cycle it to component 2. Next, use the menu to cycle to video setup, select video output, switch to component. This should solve your problem. As a sidenote, you may also have to configure the audio in/out if you're using digital coax or optical. Let me know if this works.

You should be able to get this directly from Onkyo. What is the problem tthat leads you to believe that the board needs to be replaced? Realize that the board could cost upwards of $100 or more.
