    I just got a Denon 3802 and I'm trying to get the cabling figured out.

    TV Sony 32" 1 video input (composite and s-video)

    N64 (composite)

    VCR (composite)

    DVD Panasonic RV31 (optical, composite, s-video, component)

    Connect N64, VCR and DVD composite jacks to the receiver. Connect the optical from the DVD into the receiver.

    Run Composite from the receiver to the TV.

    Run s-video from the receiver to the TV, but leave it unplugged.

    If I plug the s-video and composite into the TVs only video input at the same time I get a blank screen.

    My thought with this set up would be anyone (my wife and kids) could use any component from the receivers remote. Then when I get home and want to watch a DVD I'll plug in the s-video and be set.

    Will this work? Is there a better way?

    Dave, you can convert your composite video sources to S-video with these. This would eliminate the need to run composite video from your receiver to your TV....all of your video sources will be carried via S-video from your receiver to the single video input of your TV. I do this with my VCR and it works great.
    Hope this helps.
