I have my Sony DVP-NS50P (Cheap) CD/DVD player connected via "component" cables to my Marantz SR-18 AV Surround Receiver. The audio (L / R) is connected to the "LD" audio input on the Marantz by way of Monster cables. When these components were connected via "S-Video" connections, all worked fine, when I switched to a "component" connection (due to a television upgrade to HDTV), I get a picture and no sound. I was told it did not matter where the "audio" portion of the Sony output went, as long as the component connections were proper. I tried the "TV" audio connection on the back of the Marantz as well, still NO sound. Can anyone advise (if you are familiar with these components and their outputs / inputs) what I am doing wrong? I am using the cheap Sony DVD player because my expensive Pioneer DVL-919 DVD/LD player will NOT play non-factory original DVDs, so, I have to switch to the Sony when watching those types of DVDs. Any assistance will be greatly appreciated! Thank you.
