avr2805 svideo in to component out switching

I've been trying to set up the video switching function on the 2805 I have a monitor connected to the component o/p and a terrestrial digital box connected to Video 1 component i/p via harddisk recorder. This works fine.

I have another digital terrestrial box connect to VDP svideo i/p and, for testing, a video camera connected to VCR1 composite video i/p

I cannot get either of these two source to switch the the component o/p. Audio switches ok.

The video switches between VDP and VCR1 as it should when connected to the svideo/composite monitor o/p and the OSD works fine on that o/p

Any ideas on how I can route svideo or composite video to the component o/p?

Thanks

What is your component input assignment set to for the VDP and VCR? It's menu option 3-3.

I've just done a test on my set up. Granted I haven't got all your gear, ut the principal remains.

I disconnected my DVD component lead to make sure that was not providing a signal. I then connected a S-Video out from the DVD to the VCR input. With the TV still conected on the Component out from the amp, I switched input to VCR when the DVD was playing. Sure enough I got the S-Video converted to component which appeared on my TV.

Interesting that when you have a component source being routed via the amp, the OSD for the volume up and down doesn't work, but it does work if upsamplig from S-Video to component (i.e. the OSD "volume" appears on the component signal).

The component input assignment on the VCR in the 3-3 menu was set to none.

HTH. If it doesn't, perhaps you have faulty upsampling?

thanks for taking the time to test this out.

My component inputs for VDP and VCR are set to NONE

I also disconected everything as you did and, unfortunately, only get audio switching.

I'm hoping its not a fault. I've contacted Denon but no response as yet.

A long shot now........

Have you got ANY component signal from your AMP to display on your monitor? Do you run your DVD directly to your monitor or through the AMP?

I remember reading a recent thread in here that stated the component out on the Denon is interlaced and that a monitor that was being used was progressive scan capable. The result: no picture. I think a quick test was done by switching the output of the DVD from progressive to interlaced and no picture was the result. Progessive component will get fed through the amp unhindered I think, but any conversion is to interlaced.

As I said, a long shot.

ah you may have something now.

but to answer your first question yes, I do have a component signal from the amp when the hard disk/DVD unit is i/p on component in. This give me a 576p signal at the monitor.

my tv can display 480p, 576p or 1080i

So you are probably correct with your long shot :(
Damn, that is annoying I don't remember seeing that the conversion was to interlaced in the manual.

I have noticed that there is no down-conversion from component to svideo either, although I think I do remember reading that is the case in the manual.

The system is:

Terrestrial box: Sony DV3
connected by Scart RGB to
DVD/HD: Panasonic DMR-E95H
connected by component to
Receiver: Denon AVR 2805
connected by component to
TV: Philips 30pf9975

and then second terrestrial box: Goodmans GBD2
connected by svideo to
Receiver: Denon AVR 2805

Speakers: Mordaunt-Short Genie

Thanks again for your help
