I have an old XBOX connected via s-video cable for video and toslink for audio to my RX-V663 receiver and my VCR connected via composite cables. I have 1 HDMI cable running to my HD RPTV. When I try to play a game or watch one of my old Bulls games on the XBOX and VCR, I get a dominate greenish tint on my screen with purple outlines. I have other components connected via HDMI and they play fine. So it seems to be a problem with the analog to HDMI upconversion in the receiver. Have you guys seen this problem before and is there a simple fix for it? I know I'll probably have to take it in to a service center for repair if the receiver is broken.

Re: green screen via analog connections
Check if your input settings in the RXV663 for the S-video and composite are correct. Both connections are about the worst possibilities for video signal. What might help is powering of all other equipment not used when using XBOX or VCR, really powering off, not leave in standby.
Does your TV support analogue inputs? Than use them for the XBOX and VCR to connect directly to your TV for video, sound can still be connected to the yamaha.

The TOSLINK optical connector is almost aquare and should be the same on both blue-ray and on the receiver. There are 4 orientation you can try and only one fits. Blue-ray can have the connector installed rotated, but it should be the same connector. http://gallery.techarena.in/data/513/thumbs/Toslink-and-Coaxial-Connectors.jpg Looking at the cable at Amazon I can see that it is the correct cable. If it really doesn't fit, maybe you have damaged cable or damaged connector. Try the other end of the cable and/or other optical input on the receiver. BTW there is also combined analog/optical jack connector. It looks like normal jack socket, but accepts also optical signal. But this is not called Toslink and usually is not used in home theatre devices.
Make sure you have an analog RCA audio cable from the source to the receiver. Digital coaxial or optical will not work for zone 2 or zone 3. By adding an analog cable it will not affect your main zone, it will always go to digital first. Hope this helps
I had the same problem with RXV3900, was told by verizon and yamaha it's a software issue with the box. Verizon is suppose to be working on a new update, but no time frame for now. I'm using component to receiver, and hdmi to tv with no issues.
I had this issue once before, recheck all the conenctions on the tv, and make sure that the HDMI plug in for the TV * if its the older model * make sure it is placed to HDMI not TV.
Please let me know how it goes,

Connect your S-video output from the computer to an empty S-video input on the receiver. Connect your speaker output from computer to analog audio input on the receiver using a 1/8" stereo connector to RCA patch cable. You may have to set your computer to output video to the S-video jack, consult your HP documentation for instructions.
