Hello, I'm new to this stuff. I just got a Denon AVR1802 receiver and I am trying to run the s-video out from the digital cable box and the s-video out from my dvd player into my receiver, and then use a composite cable to hook it up my tv because my tv only has composite. I know I dont really need s-video when I have to use composite to the tv, but I thought it might help stop signal degradation until it gets sent to the tv at least. The problem is I cant get video to go from s-video to composite in the receiver. I guess I figured that the receiver can do this signal transforming, am I wrong? Can s-video connection in only go out s-video? Another problem I realized is my dvd and digital cable both have coaxial outputs only and my receiver only has one coaxial input. There are 3 optical inputs but none of the things I have use optical :frowning: is there anything that can be done here besides switching the cable physically when i want surround sound on a dvd or tv? digital coaxial to optical converter? Thanks.
