can you input composite and output it s-video or component video though the 3802?
No, it doesnt convert video signals.
The only Denon that does is the A1SR.
Have you considered using the tv as the central point for video rather than the amp?
the problem(s) i have is:
tosh 2109 import dvd player running s-video though amp
*from amp i am using s-video to scart
tosh sd100 dvd player running scart
dreamcast running s-video though amp
xbox running scart
game cube running composite at moment(will get scart)
sky box running scart
sony vcr running scart though sky box
all into a tv with two scarts!!
anyone know if maplin or someone do a RGB scart switcher box?
i dont want to lose out in quality dept,but the scarts on my tv are starting to get loose!
any help would be great.
I have a similar question before I purchase a 3802 or 11SR, (undecided!).
I would like to input various video sources to the amp using composite / SVHS signals, and use the monitor out to the TV's SCART, as well as output the video to my (old) projector using SVHS. Is this actually possible, as I had hoped to be able to play my PS2 + DVD through the projector via my amp, (DVD via composite and PS2 via SVHS).
... DVD via composite ...
You surely don't want to do that: S-Video (not S-VHS) is the least you should use for DVD, else component (if applicable) or RGB (via Scart) is the preferred option.
Composite is the worst and doesn't do DVD quality justice.
As for your problem: I suggest you fix your connections at S-Video level. You can then "split" the signal to TV and projector using the Monitor Out and any other Video Out (e.g. from the VCR1 in/output). May need to switch the REC Out selector but that's no issue.
Your TV must of course be S-Video compatible (RTFM), suitable adapters (S-Video to SCART) are available at most stores selling AV equipment. Note that SCART defines the mechanics of the connector and cable wiring, it is not a signal standard by itself (i.e. SCART can carry composite, S-Video and RGB + audio).
The above should work with most AV amps, not only the Denon's.
Thanks Reiner. (I should have typed S-Video, but for some reason it came out as SVHS....well, it was Monday!)
I shall purchase further s-Video connection leads, and try them!
or get yourself a Quattro+ RGB scart splitter from www.lektropacks.co.uk and enjoy RGB fun!
