    Frankie,

    Welcome to the forum! Since you did not give any details about the connections in your system, I am going to assume that you have the video output from your VCR connected to the receiver (real nice receiver, BTW), and the video output from your receiver connected to the TV. The one piece of advice I can give right now is to make sure that the type of connection is the same for each of these. That is, if you use an S-video connection between the VCR and receiver, you have to use an S-video connection between the receiver and TV. If your TV does not have S-video inputs, then use composite connections throughout your system (these are cables with yellow RCA connectors).

    If this does not help, please provide more details about what you are doing, and I am sure someone will be able to help you solve your problem.

    Good luck!

    Cliff

    Frankie - assuming you have the S-Video connection from the VCR going to one of the S-video ins on the receiver, you need to also have the stereo audio out of the VCR connected to the corresponding audio ins of the receiver (the ones associated with the s-video in you used).

    Assuming also you have the monitor (display) output from the receiver connected to your TV, then all you need to do is power it all up, make sure you've selected the right input on the receiver (the one your VCR is connected to) and video should be on your display and sound should come out of the speakers connected to the receiver, assuming the volume is up and it's not muted. If it's hooked up this way, the display's (TV's?) volume control is irrelevant.

    Hope this helps.
