    I have an LG OLED 65E6V television and have just paired it with a Denon AVR-X2300W receiver. I connected the Receiver and TV as instructed via HDMI (ARC). I also connected an Optical link from the TV to the Receiver's Digital Audio IN 1 TVAUDIO (not sure whether I was supposed to do this but the cable was already coming from the rear of TV from a previous set up!).

    I then followed the Denon’s ONSCREEN SETUP ASST. I connected my Humax (OSN) satellite set top box with no problems, connecting it via HDMI to the CAB/SAT HDMI 4K IN port on the Receiver. I set up my Bluray Player as instructed via HDMI to BLURAY port on Receiver. so far, so good but then I hit problems - I tried to connect my 4K Bein satellite set top box and Wii - how do I connect these?

    I thought that there may be a problem with the Bein box so I removed the Humax (OSN) box from the system and connected the 4K Bein box via the same connections - still no picture. However I can get audio and video if I connect Bein direct to my LG TV’s HDMI IN socket!!

    Then I tried to connect the Wii via the GAME setup and can only get audio.

    Obviously I am doing something wrong but what is it? All my HDMI cables are new and HDMI2.

    There's too many things going on to be able to fix any one of them, so I'll just pick a couple and see what happens.
    You should not connect the optical if you have the HDMI working with ARC.
    The Wii is a component connection (yellow, red, white), and the only Denon input labeled "game" is an HDMI input, so I'm confused on that. But the Wii should be connected to one of the composite/audio inputs, CBL/SAT or DVD.

    thanks Al.
    Well firstly i wasnt sure myself why i had connected the optical lead!! but it was because i am currently forced to route my 4K Bein Sat decoder direct to the TV via an HDMI lead; this gives me a pic and audio but if i pull out the optical lead then no sound!! in an ideal world i would prefer to route it via the Denon AVR.
    Secondly i have tried to connect the Wii using its yellow, red, white leads. i follow the Denon startup assistant instructions - select DVD, then connect the yellow to DVD2 Video IN, then connect red and white to DVD2 Audio IN; the onscreen note then tells me to listen for audio but it also says ''this video signal will not be sent to the HDMI video output'', whereupon i get sound but no picture!!!

    For your Wii, perhaps get your hands on one of these: http://a.co/hPhD7ck. The Wii interface supports either component (red, green and blue video, plus RCA A/V outs), S-Video or Composite, but the item above converts the signal to digital for HDMI. Might be worth considering.
