Onkyo TX-SR805 and component TV problem (1 Viewer)

I have hooked up my DVD and Sat box via HDMI to the Onkyo receiver. Since my TV doesn't have HDMI I've used the component RGB out from the receiver to the TV.

I can turn on a DVD and I get sound but no video. I have checked and made sure the HDMI output is set to OFF for the receiver.

What am I doing wrong? I'm completely stumped. I can hookup component dvd to the receiver and get video but it won't send DVD HDMI input over to component TV for some reason.

HELP!

The receiver will not downconvert HDMI to component, it will only upconvert component to HDMI. Use the DVD's component outs.

What Jeff said along with the good folks over at AVS when you asked the same question. And the same thing on pages 28 & 29 of your manual showing the possible audio/video paths through the 805.
