    Just bought my denon avr1602- and am confused about hooking up the audio/video cables

    Starting with the TV- it has s-video & regular audio outs. Now I have it hooked to dvd w/ a s-video cable & 2 audio cables to the old receiver. To hook up to new receiver I assume i run audio out from tv to audio-in in receiver and leave the s-video hooked up to dvd player.

    I know how to hook up the vcr, but the dvd player I m not so sure. I know i need an digital cable from dvd to receiver and can use either a coax or toslink cable. What else do I need to hook up? Do I need a complete set of audio & video cables from dvd to receiver?

    And from receiver to TV, assuming I leave my s-video from dvd to tv I will need to hook up my receiver to the tv from a monitor out RCA hookup to the video input to the tv -correct?

    Hey Johnson,

    For the dvd, yes, S-video out from the dvd player to the tv is correct. You say you can go optical or coax out for sound...either will work (i prefer coax, not as fragile). Just use coax out..thats all you need.

    As far as the tv sound to your receiver just use two analog rca's (no video) from the receiver's tv out to left right in on the tv. You should be all set.

    maybe im confused but my receiver has no audio out to the tv. the only audio out goes to vcr or cdr/tape. why would I run audio out from receiver to in-tv. doesnt the tv send the audio signal to the receiver? i know its not rocket science but I dont want to screw anything up [​IMG]
    for a large picture of my receiver hook ups see http://crutchfield.com/cgi-bin/S-Ug1...602&display=XL
    just a follow up- can i just hook my vcr audio to receiver & video out from vcr to tv-in ? Im assuming the receiver only deals with audio. ? [​IMG]

    "maybe im confused but my receiver has no audio out to the tv."

    Look directly to the left of the coax output on your receiver under the audio connections... it say tv/dbs. this is your audio out to your tv. I'm assuming your using the tuner in tv right? Whatuya got cable? This is the way to go.Sometimes you look right at something and don't see it! Lol, happens to me too.
