Denon 2807 setup

by JoelPargot - 7/12/06 9:50 AM

I am trying to setup a Denon 2807 A/V receiver for the first time. I have two input sources I am connecting to a Denon 2807 AV receiver with the monitor output to a Samsung LN-S4692D LCD TV. One input source is a Motorola cable TV digital converter box and the other is a Sony DVP-NS75H DVD player. The cable box has component video output but not HDMI, while the DVD player does have HDMI output. My original plan was to: (1)connect the cable box to the 2807 via the DBS tuner component video input ports; (2) connect the DVD player to the 2807 via HDMI input port 2; and (3)connect the 2807 to the TV via the monitor out HDMI port. However, when the 2807 funtion switch is set to DBS, my TV does not receive a signal from the HDMI input cable. I have checked and re-checked all of my connections and settings without success. Should I just bypass the 2807 and plug the cable TV box component video cables directly into the TV and run the audio cables only to the 2807? Assuming I could get it to work, what is the advantage of routing component video from a digital cable converter box through the A/V receiver?

Any guidance would be greatly appreciated. I have found it impossible to get through to Denon technical support.
