I have a Yamaha RX-V800 AV Receiver. When I connect a Composite Video Signal the picture I get is all wavy and weak. I though it had to do with an older device but new VCRs and DVDs result in the same problem. It doesn't seem to matter which input I use. Any help would be appreciated.

Re: Yamaha RX-V800 Composite Video Signal Problem
Hey there fontdude, I will begin assuming you are running your a/v cable into your receiver and then out to the TV or Monitor. If this is the case, I suggest you run the video cable direct from DVD or VCR device to Tv/monitor. You can still run the audio through your receiver. The nature of your problem was probably related to video signal strength being weakened as it ran through your receiver. Good Luck! Let me know how it works for you.

There is extensive use of audio and video signal processing circuitry with significant delays in television systems. Particular video signal processing circuitry which is widely used and contributes significant video delays include frame synchronizers, digital video effects processors, video noise reduction, format converters and MPEG pre-preprocessing.
The video monitor processing circuit may delay the video stream. Pixelated displays require video format conversion and deinterlace processing which can add one or more frames of video delay.
A video monitor with built-in speakers or line-out may not delay sound and video paths by the same amount of milliseconds. Some video monitors contain internal user-adjustable audio delays to aid in correction of errors.
Check the settings on receiver in the SETUP menu / HDMI / Audio. Here you can choose Amp (sound goes from the speakers connected to receiver), TV (receiver is muted and sound is routed via HDMI to TV) and Amp+TV (sound goes from speakers and also to TV). Also check in OPTION menu / Signal Info that receiver is receiving sound in recognized format.
in your menu ther is a place to assign video inputs. i suspect that the video input you are using for your game is not set to composite (you say that you are using the yellow, that would only work for composite). Search through your video menu til you come upon the part that says assign video inputs. then pick the correct (number 1, 2, front panel, etc) input and change it so it reads analog or composite. that should allow you to pass the video portion. if all else fail you can always connect the video portion to the tv directly.
The RX-V800 switches the various video signal types separately. Since you are feeding S-Video to the TV the composite (yellow) input from your Wii is not going anywhere. If you cant get S-Video output from the Wii then I'd suggest a simple Composite to S-video adaptor plug ($5 say). It worked for me with a Game Cube. Cheers BJ
