720p output doesn't work

I have an AVR-247 and the 480p output works fine on both component and HDMI. However, when I change to 720p the screen goes black and I can't even get the OSD to come up (though the receiver displays 'OSD' on the front). This also occurs with both component and HDMI. Damn. Help appreciated!

    Have video on video out and component out (checked with other monitor). Do not have any HDMI output from AVR2600. Tried the factory reset option - no luck. Suspect something wrong with HDMI board itself but it converts HDMI inputs from non-protected sources to component OK. Audio is fine on unit - inputs for that work great, functions fine other then video out on HDMI.

The problem might be that the set can not handle the change in signal. Try setting the AVR-247 to 720P first then turning on the set. Or manually set the TV to receive 720P then change the AVR. TI believe that you have a connectivity issue where the two units are not speaking the same language at the same time. Update this with your results and please post the TV make and model.
Thanks,
Dan

Does the Harmon kardan avr25 have an hdmi output


Nope. You get one component OUTPUT (monitor) and two component INPUTS (Vid 2/DVD) but no HDMI video output.

If you can input and switch HDMI video directly at your display from your cable/SAT etc. you should be fine, just run all the audio through the AVR-25 through the coaxial/optical digital inputs, L/R analog RCA or the 5.1 direct inputs.

Connecting


did you check this out yet? (from the owners manual)

IMPORTANT NOTE: If the AVR's video output resolution

is set higher than the capabilities of the actual connection,

you will not see a picture. If the best available video connection

from the AVR to the TV is composite video, press this button
and change the resolution to 480i.

I have a Denon AVR2307 to which is connected,via optical audio and component video a DVD player/recorder and this works well but in order to take some of the work off the player part I've bought another...


HDMI signal from DVD can not be down converted to analog component signal.
Connect your new DVD to a component input 1..4. Make sure that component input assigned to desired input (dvd/vcr/sat/) (setup - input setup - input - component assign - component x etc). Connect coax output of DVD to coax x input of the receiver and assign it (setup- input setup - "input" - digital assign ..). Probably you need to setup DVD output resolution to 720i or 720p in dvd setup menu.

Sound and video goes out periodically for a a couple of seconds every few minutes. Power stays on, all sound and video stops.


I am assuming you are connected HDMI?
This is a common problem when connected with HDMI. HDMI checks for HDCP codes every three seconds and if it doesnt get the proper response from the devices or repeater (amp) it will drop the connection and ask again in 3 seconds. If it receives the proper key it will display the signal again.
Have you tried the firmware update? http://www.usa.denon.com/AVR-4308CIFirmwareUpdate-Web1128.pdf
I hate to say this but HDMI is not perfect yet so there may not be a solution to this except to drop your inputs and outputs to component video and digital audio. The only source that will be effected from a resolution stand point is a BluRay which can only display 720p or 1080i (not 1080p) when ran through component video.

I just got a Denon AVR-588 7.1 Channel reciever w/ no video


Dear,

I donot think AVR588 is capable of down-converting from HDMI to component, so if you input is only HDMI and output is component, it will not work. ( see page 53 in trouble shooting as also page10 of the manual).
Therefore, you will need to match your input with your output.

If you are not too fussy, the component video signal is probably as good..You will hardly see a difference unless your AVR is capable of up-conversion, still the real difference can really be seen only on HD.
Best is to connect all the analog connections as well and enjoy.

HDMI output from AVR-4806


You say your connected from the DVD to the Denon with an HDMI cord and the Denon to the TV with an HDMI cord and you get no DVD video? can you get the Denon setup menu? if so change the res. output on the DVD to 480p, 720p or 1080i but not 1080p

No picture


the reason you can't get a signal is the denon 1708 will not pass the 1080p, switch the DVD output res. to 1080i or 720p and it will work

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.).

Problem with component input and 720p HDMI output


does your cable box have an hdmi output? if it does try an hdmi cable instead of componant cables[ i know the hdmi cables aren't cheap] if not, if the reciever has componant outputs, use them instead.
hope this helps

Denon AVR-887 and Wii


I'm dealing with the very same frustration. Best I can tell, the problem with my setup is that this model (avr-887) can't pass component video input out through HDMI. Can anyone confirm that? 
Prior to setting up the Wii, I'd only been using a single HDMI output from the denon to my tv/monitor.
The only solution I've found is to add a component video output to the monitor -- which is unfortunate. I'd much rather have only the single HDMI out.
Would love to hear if there is a way to set this up without having to add the additional component output...
