    I just ran across a problem over the weekend. My wife has a Karaoke Microphone deal that we used to plug directly into the front A/V jacks on the tv. I tried using the front A/V composite jacks on the front of my receiver this time and got audio but no video. I have ALL my other components hooked up with S-Video and out to TV with S-Video also.

    My question is, do I need a composite video cable also going to my tv to get the video of any composite input on my receiver? I see that Denon states S-Video/Composite switching but I dont know if they're refering to taking a composite signal in and outputing a s-video signal.

    Thanks for any input.

    Yep- most receivers don't offer any ability to cross covert. If you come out of the unit Svideo, you will only be able to switch Svideo sources: and vice versa.

    So, you'll also have to run composite out from the receiver if you plan to run composite inputs.

    Or get an S-Vid adapter for the composite input.
