    I have connected a Toshiba SD340E DVD player to a Denon AVR-1705 receiver using component cables. My problem is when I play a DVD I can hear the sound but no picture.

    I have used a S-Video cable to send the output from the receiver to my TV because it does not have any components inputs.

    I have spent hours trying to figure out why but without any success. Has anyone got any ideas? By the way I am a newbie to AV.

    I'm not sure, but does the 1705 actually do video up/down conversion?

    Your receiver will not convert the component signal received from the DVD player down to S-Video to be sent to the TV. You will need to connect the DVD player to your receiver via an S-Video lead to get the picture carried on to the TV. Otherwise why not connect the DVD player directly to your TV as this would save on a couple of extra leads. This would also have the advantage of being able to use the better quality RGB from scart.
