ok so my problem is, I am running a digital cable box.. and it doesnt have S-video, so i ran an video rca cable into the in Vid 1 in, now I have an svideo cable running from the monitor out into my TV, but i have no video, I also tried the vid 1 output with the svideo and its still not working.. My goal is to have all my video sorces running through my reciver then out the Svideo cable into my tv, but its seeming like its not going to woork.. the manual is no help.. I read this little blurb on the HK website that makes it sound like the svideo out is only for onscreen menu and its telling me to run the video source directly into the tv, and in that case, then um changing plugs each time i change the source.. here is the blurb P.S. you will probably see lots of questions like this in the near future.. thanx "Determine which type of video input is available on your television or monitor. This may be 3-jack component video (Y/Pr/Pb) colored red, blue and green; S-Video, with five small prongs in a circular jack; or composite video, which is colored yellow and looks like the RCA-type jack. If available on your equipment, S-Video connections should be used. If your DVD player and video display device both have component video connections, you should connect the DVD player’s video output directly to the TV or monitor for best results. You should also connect the receiver’s S-Video monitor output to the TV in order to use the on-screen-display feature. Having selected which type of video connector you will use when switching through the receiver, you should use the same connector on all of your video devices to avoid problems with components being unable to convert from one type of signal to another."
