I recently purchased a psyclone component selector to hook up several gaming systems to my receiver. I have 3 systems hooked up to the selector. It has one output that goes to the receiver. Each of the game systems input to the selector is different. One uses component, one uses composite, one uses a composite with an S video cable. I have all of these outputs going to the reciever from the selector. I have hooked the selector to the receiver under "video 2" and I get sound for all three when each system is selected and video as well with the composite and s video cable system. How can I get the video to work on the others too? Can it only take one type of input at a time? I don't have s video outputs on two of the system so that's not an option for me. I don't have a manual for my receiver so if there is a way to select the type of input i don't know how. Any help will be greatly appreciated.
Re: trouble getting a picture with a source selector
The input on your television monitor must be set to view the composite with the S video cable. You will not be able to view the component video unless you also have component video outputs going from the input selector to the television. After you have done that, you will also have to change your television input from "video 2" to whatever input you used for the component video hookup.

There might be several problems. As the projector has component only connections and the DVD player none, then if the Receiver has component out, you can hook it up to that. If the receiver has HDMI inputs then you can connect the DVD player via the HDMI socket to it. The Coax sockets on the DVD player will be for sound. Number one should be connected to Digital coax 1 and assigned for it.
It's possible that the sound on the DVD player is switched off on the coax or has the wrong format selected. You will need to see the player's menu for this, so if you can't see the screen using the projector, connect a TV instead.
However if the receiver has no component out and no HDMI sockets you will have real problems connecting the DVD and using the projector with it. Though you should be able to hear the sound via the Denon.
You can buy video-to-HDMI converters. Here's one through Amazon.com, but there are many other sources. I just picked it as a sample since it was a nice picture. I didn't do much searching, so I don't know how common or expensive a converter with multiple input capability might be. But simpler A/V selector switches are available, so if you have several things you want to connect you can get one to use along with the converter.
Keep in mind that conversion to HDMI won't give you the same quality as the direct HDMI output from a device. So if you have several devices with HDMI outputs, you might be better off buying a new receiver with HDMI inputs instead of dealing with switches and converters. It will ultimately be easier to hook everything up, and you'll have better A/V quality too.
This unit has a defective hdmi board,this is a common problem with this model. The unit is to be taken to a onkyo service center for exchange of the hdmi board under warrenty, if out of warrentyit will cost you several hundards of dollars.
On the rear of the receiver you will notice several AUDIO IN connections. Make sure that the AUDIO IN and the receiver's input selector match (for example, if you are connected to AUDIO IN for the VCR section, the input selector on the FRONT of the receiver should also be VCR). Also, make sure that the input selector you are using is set to "Digital Audio" or a digital audio enabled equivalent and NOT analog. Check all connections again to make sure you have not grounded any speaker wire. Check to see if "MUTE" is on TV or Receiver. Try another audio in source just to make sure the speakers are connected properly. If that works, you can pretty much decide that it's either the input selection is wrong or the audio source is not set to digital 9also check to see if PCM is enabled and try setting to "AUTO" if you have that function. If you have option on receiver for speakers A and B, make sure selection matches your wiring.
You need a 4 port A/V switch. Ebay has one:
