    Hi all can you help me with this one as im a bit stumped.

    Ok ive just got this new PJ whoo hoo! A Sanyo PLV-Z1 ok,

    I was playing a DVD last night with a plain old composite cable from the back of the DVD player to the PJ and obviously the sound routed to my Denon 3801 reciever.

    Then i wanted to change running the composite cable from the DVD player and run it from the moniter out on my 3801 so that i could video switch from sky vcr dvd using the amp but i got no signal to the PJ.

    Can anyone shed a bit of light? Do i need to do something in the 3801s menu?

    :confused:

    Cheers for any help,
    Regards,
    John.

    Have you got the Video Source set to the correct input? Bear in mind if you are feeding it a composite signal it will only output a composite signal, the amp won´t up-convert to S-Video etc.

    :) I would have thought you´d be better off using an S-Video signal (from the dvd player at least) to the PJ. Composite is the naffest quality. Or are you just testing things out?:)
