Hello all, and Happy Holidays! Now, I hope someone can help me have a Merry Christmas! I'm going crazy for 3 days now. My problem. I have a Kenwood VR 509 receiver, Onkyo DV-S555 DVD, JVC VCR, Hitachi Super Ultravision Television, Cable box, Satellite receiver...i think thats it. (Oh and HTD Level III 6 speaker system. Now, I "Finally" got the DVD player to work. I hooked up Component Video (CV) cables from the DVD to the receiver, then CV to the TV. I pluged a L & R audio to the DVD surround area in the receiver, and now I watch and Listen to the DVD on VIDEO 2 on my TV. BUT, I can't watch my VCR (no video). I installed regular AV red/white/yellow, cables from the VCR to Video 1/video 1 in on my receiver, then a S-video from monitor out on my receiver to the Video 1 S-video. But I still have no video. If I switch to Video 1 on the receiver I can HEAR the Tape (Sound/movie) but I get no video. Obviously I'm doing something wrong, but I can't figure it out! Anyone with a VR-509 care to help, I would appreciate it! Merry Christmas! Also, How to I get the sound from a basic cable/TV station to come through my reciever/speakers?
