I am in the process of hooking up my new Zenith receiver and I seem to be running into a snag. I haven't hooked up the dish yet, only the OTA signal. I have a strong signal on all the digital channels. Unfortunately, when I switch to 1080i on the Zenith, I lose the video. Any solutions?
The Zenith does not output 480i through the component outputs at all, so if you are seeing video on that setting it is via the S-Video or Composite output. Check your cabling, and make sure that the TV input settings are really set to the component input and not the S-Video, RF or composite.
If you're not seeing anything through the component cables, you might have the component/RGB switch set to RGB. But it does sound like you're only using the composite video and not the Y-Pb-Pr outputs.
Walking the fine line between jaw-dropping and a plain ol' yawn.
