    I cannot for the LIFE of me get this to work. My system is:

    Panasonic EX75 DVD player
    Denon 2307 Receiver
    Epson TW3600 Projector

    I connect the DVD player to the amp via component, assign 'Component-1' input to the amp's DVD function, ensure the 'Video Convert' function is 'ON'... but nothing on the Epson (connected to the HDMI output of the amp). No signal. Nada.

    Does ANYONE know where I could be going wrong?! The Epson supports 480i over HDMI. I'm beginning to think the amp is playing up.

    Thanks in advance

    Do you have another HDMI equipped Display you can use to test the AVR.

    Are you able to see the Denon GUI via the HDMI on the Projector.

    How are you connecting the AVR to the Projector?

    I can see the Denon GUI via HDMI on the projector, yes. When I exit the 'System Setup' menu it obviously disappears and I'm back to seeing 'No Signal'.

    The AVR is connected to the projector via a 15m or so HDMI run, with an extender in the middle.

    I'll try connecting the AVR to my Panasonic LCD instead of the projector and see if that works. Watch this space...

    (I think I'll also try a connection other than component. I think the 2307 upconverts S-video as well!)

    'The AVR is connected to the projector via a 15m or so HDMI run, with an extender in the middle.' - what is the Extender?

    Def worth tying the AVR > LCD and see how that goes.

    Joe

    PS Ensure you are sending a non-progressive signal from the DVD to the AVR - don't have time to look just now but possibly the AVR will only up-convert interlaced signals.

    OK, I feel rather stupid now. The problem is solved. It seems there is a feature on the amp called 'V. Select' which changes the video source without actually changing the function on the amp. Someone had obviously pressed this button by accident, so the function 'DVD' was trying to source video from the 'TV' input!

    Seems like an utterly stupid feature to have on an amp. I'm not very likely to want to watch one source and listen to another. Anyway, thanks very much for the help.

    V.select - may have fallen foul of that one myself.

    It is amazing how unintuitive some kit can be.

    Good you got it sorted - and I like the don't touch it rule :)
