Hi all, After hours of trying to connect up my home theater I came across this forum and might have found the answer to my problem but would like someone to comfirm. I've just bought a Sony AV Receiver STR-DG500 and connected it to my Sony TV (KV-SR34) using a component cable. I've also connected my DVD Player (DVP-NS61P) to the receiver with a component cable. When I play a DVD all works 100% - with the TV set to 'dvd' I've now plugged my PS2 into the receiver (Video1) with a composite cable (I think its a composite cable - yellow with red and white) With the TV set to dvd and receiver set to video1 I dont get a picture - there is sound though. To get a picture I need to connect a composite cable (yellow) from the "monitor out" of the receiver to the video1 on the tv. With the tv set to video1 I now get a picture. Is it not possible to leave the TV on dvd and control the dvd/ps2 via the receiver. From what I've read so far it looks like I need something called component upconversion? The receiver cannot take a composite signal and output it via component cable....correct? Is there any way around this?
