Question about Denon AVR-1602 Receiver
I know the avr 1602 well....What exactly do you mean "I have my TV cable service wired to the Denon".....Do you mean the actual co-ax cable ?....
The denon is only able to switch raw video and audio signals.
What do I mean by that ?....IF you are running your co-ax cable from your cable company directly into the back of the denon, it won't work. The Denon has an AM-FM tuner, but not a video tuner ( channels 1-121)....If this is what you are doing, then you want to run it to your samsung first ( as long as the samsung has a tuner so you can change channels ).
If the samsung operates like an old VCR, whereby you can plug the cable company co-ax cable into the back of it, and change channels with the samsung, then that is what you must do. You would then hook up the OUTPUTS of the samsing to the VCR or DVD inputs on the Denon receiver. ( use DVD inputs on the denon if the samsung has optical audio out, and use an optical cable as well for better sound ).
You would then use the Denon for the sound, and hook up your TV to the Monitor out jack on the back of the Denon.
The Denon is like a big switchbox. You plug your DVD, VCR, Satellite, video game, or what-have-you into the Denon. Then you use the denon to route the signal to your TV for the picture, and the denon takes care of the sound.
Hope this helps, and remember to always follow your owners manual.......Rob
