Yamaha 620AX - On Screen Set Up???

    Small annoying problem....... please help!

    I have Yamaha DSP620AX amp and Pioneer 626D DVD player. These are connected directly with high quality SCART.

    I have my cable TV and video connected to the last remaining SCART on the TV.

    The amp is not normally connected up to the TV for video input as I don't need it to do any switching, just audio.........

    So - the TV has one last input, a s-video input on the front. I was hoping to connect the s-video TV input with the amp s-video output using a common or garden audio cable........

    When I do this the on screen set up appears, however it floats all over the screen and is very hard to use.

    I have tried removing one or both SCARTs when connecting the s-video but this doesn't seem to help.

    Do I need a different cable (remember I only need this to set up, not watch video through) or is there an easy solution.......

    Thanks,

    Lester's Cloud

    Are you sure it's s-vid? Or are you connecting via composite, if you're using what I assume is a standard phono cable? Make sure all other inputs are switched off and cycle through your AV channels.

    What do you mean by 'floats all over the screen'?

    If you have a phono video input on the front of the TV a single phono from Monitor Out to this input should do the trick. It does on my Marantz.

    As it is not connected permanently I just disconnect one of the other leads and use that.

    That's what I do with my 620, and I'm assuming that's what Mr Cloud is trying to do as well...
