My set up: RCA DirecTV Plus digital satellite receiver Onkyo TX-SR600 AV receiver Mitsubishi 35" TV (model CK-3526R, about 10 years old) Toshiba SD-2109 DVD video player (8 years old) JVC HR-D670U VCR Velodyne CHT-8 SW 2 front, 2 surround, one center channel speakers. I just got the Onkyo and I love it. Everything is working perfectly, except the video connection to the VCR. I get sound when playing the VHS tape, but no picture - I get the blue screen (forget about trying to record anything. That will be my next question once this is solved). I run the RW analog audio and Y video RCA connectors from the satellite box to the Video 3 inputs of the Onkyo. I run the S-video monitor out from the Onkyo to the video monitor in of the TV. Great sound and great video from the satellite. I run the digital audio coax cable and S-video cable from the DVD player to the Onkyo DVD input. Great sound and great video for DVD movies. For the VCR connections: I run the RW analog audio and Y video RCA connectors from the A/V out of the VCR into the A/V in of the Onkyo. I also run the RW analog audio and Y video RCA connectors from the Onkyo A/V out to the VCR A/V in. I put in a tape, hit play, and I only get sound. Am I correct in assuming that all video should be transmitted from the VCR (and DVD and satelltite) via whatever video cables to the Onyko (component, S-video), through the Onkyo, and to the TV via the S-video cable from the Onkyo to the TV? Why do the satellite and DVD work fine, but no video from the VCR???
