    Hey guys,

    I posted a while back about this reciever and learned that it cant switch between 2 components where one uses S-video and the other uses RCA jacks.

    Now I'm wondering if you can do this if you have both the RCA video out and S-video out going to the TV. In other words switch the TV between one input with s-video and the other with RCA.

    So, if you have a vcr hooked to the reciever via RCA inputs on the reciever, and a DVD player hooked to the reciever via S-video inputs on the reciever, then you have both video outs of the reciever going to the tv (RCA and S-video), will this work??

    Thanks in advance,

    Marshall

    Marshall,

    I have not heard of any popular brand of A/V receiver

    that will convert video inputs.

    The answer to your question is yes. Another way to do it

    is to use a composite to S-Video converter.

    My (video) system:

    1)Panasonic PV-D4741 VCR > Entech S-Video converter>receiver

    2)Panasonic PV-D4741 DVD > S-Video > receiver

    3)HTR-5280 receiver > Sony WEGA (via S-Video)

    You can buy a $20.00 converter at R/S. The Entech is $100.00.

    Have you turned on the YAM yet?

    Ok, I have a question for you, now when you do this, won't your DVD and VCR be on the same channel? Such as video1 or Video2? Since you have them hooked into the reciever then ONE cable going from out to in? HUH...just curious...

    Abel,

    If my receiver is in VCR mode, it (the receiver) connects

    the VCR video out to the TV's S-Video input. Since my

    TV cable is connected to the VCR, the TV is used as a video

    monitor only. If the receiver is in DVD mode, it (the receiver)

    selects the DVD's S-Video output and connects it to the TV.

    The main thing to consider is the current crop of A/V receivers

    are fine video switchers, but they will only switch like

    video signals. They do not convert the video signals.

    However, they can convert the audio signals.
