Last night I tried hooking up the new AV Receiver [Yamaha rx-v477] that I bought for my dad, but I had trouble getting a video signal from his old DVD player. This is the basic setup:
Devices going into the receiver:
- Cable box [HDMI video + audio] -> HDMI2.
- Chromecast [HDMI video + audio] -> HDMI6.
- DVD player [Component video + Optical audio] -> AV1
Then I plugged the receiver into the TV via HDMI. I got audio from everything, and video from everything except the DVD player! I tried using composite from the DVD player to the receiver and had the same issue; no video, only sound..
I'm going to work on it more today, but I thought I'd seek advice first. So, how can I hook this up correctly? I was under the impression that the receiver would handle all the various input devices and simply send video to the HDTV via HDMI and audio to the speakers. Do I need more than just a single HDMI connection from the receiver to the HDTV in this type of setup?
