Frustration with Marantz SR6001 component output

First post, but probably a silly question. I have owned a Marantz SR6001 and NR 1601. I have been unable for either one to output component video thru HDMI. For example, I cant get my Xbox 360 to output via HDMI. I have to connect via component output and switch the TV to component. The manual says it should but there is something trival in the menus I am missing. It is driving me crazy. Otherwise, they both rock.

Considering the age of the 6001 are you sure it has upconversion (this is what is required to upconvert component to HDMI)?

The SR6001 has transcoding from composite to HDMI, but not from component to HDMI. It can only switch component.

I assume your xbox is configured for 720p or 1080i, but not for 1080p?

The up-conversion feature of the SR6001 can output
the input analog video signals (for component video
signals of 480i, 480p, 1080i and 720p resolution, and
S-Video and Video (composite) of 480i resolution) to
the HDMI MONITOR terminal.
Notes:
• HDMI video input is only output to the HDMI
MONITOR OUT terminal of the SR6001. If
connecting a playback device such as a DVD
player to the HDMI input jack, connect the HDMI
MONITOR OUT terminal of the SR6001 to a TV
monitor.
• This mode is unavailable for the REC out terminal.
• This mode is unavailable for still picture, fast
forward and reverse play on video component.
• If, while attempting to use the video convert feature,
the SR6001 cannot synchronize with the display
device, “NO SIGNAL” appears on the monitor or
noise is generated, this feature cannot be used. All of
these signs are caused by equipment incompatibility;
there is nothing wrong with the SR6001.
If this occurs, set “VIDEO CONVERT” in the
“VIDEO SETUP” menu to “DISABLE”. Next,
connect the video input signal to the display component
via the MONITOR OUT terminal under VIDEO and
the S-video input signal to the display component via
the MONITOR OUT terminal under S-VIDEO.
• The video convert feature constantly monitors
input video signals and determines whether to
convert the input signals or not. However, some
input video signals cannot be detected correctly.
If this occurs, set “VIDEO CONVERT” in the
“VIDEO SETUP” menu to “DISABLE”.

• If the resolution of the component video signal
input from the playback device is other than 480i,
480p, 1080i or 720p, images are not output from the
HDMI MONITOR OUT terminal of the SR6001.
• If the resolution of the S-Video or Video signal input
from the playback device is other than 480i, images
are not output from the HDMI MONITOR OUT
terminal of the SR6001.
There is no on-line manual for the UK (PAL) SR6001 model.
