I didn't know where to put this, so please move to where it belongs... ok here goes: I have it connected 2 ways. 1st is from cable box to vcr to tv through coax 2nd A/V cables to reciever when I have the tv set to the Ant inputs(coax) I have no problem. but when I go thru the reciever my tv blinks a black screen. I have moved cables, tried different cables, diff. inputs on the reciever, and even connected directly into the A/V on the tv. my SAT is also routed thru the reciever and there is no problem with that. however if I put my vcr on that input(the 1 the SAT uses) it blinks. if I use the A/V inputs on the vcr and feed my SAT into it(pass the signal thru the vcr with the same A/V cables out) the tv will not blink, but as soon as I change the vcr back to the cable it starts. I even tried a different vcr from another room and it has the same problem. what am I missing? any help will be greatly appreciated. thank you.
