One thing at a time.
When you have done this correctly, the Input Assign menu should show you in the third "Comp" column a 1 on the SAT/CBL line, saying you have associated COMP-1 with the SAT/CBL label.
You lost me here. Third "Comp" columm?
As you are connecting the set over HDMI, you need to make sure the upscaler is on, although this should be true by default. At least the Video Select should be Source and i/p Scaler to Analog.
Yes HDMI. Upscaler is on and Video Select is Source and i/p Scaler is Analog.
How are you connecting the audio? Are you connecting 2 channel audio over RCA plugs to the SAT/CBL analog audio input? If using digital audio, you will have to assign this, too. And the audio will not be passed over HDMI to your set. Are you hearing the current channel from the Scientific Atlanta box on your speakers?
I haven't connected the audio yet, waiting to get a picture first. But, yes I am planning to connect with digital from the box to the avr. And I will assign. But, whoa. audio will not pass over HDMI??? That's a problem.
I assume when you see a dancing green screen, that is when you have left the menu, and you are seeing the on-screen menuing on your plasma set when you are in the menu.
P.S. Of course, you don't have to do this. I continue to connect my Scientific Atlanta box direct to the set with component, and run the audio only to the receiver over a digital audio connection
I haven't gotten past the green screen. No menu, nothing. So, unless I'm assigning improperly, there must be another problem.
But wait. This whole conversation may be mute by the last thing you said. The problem is this: My set is in one room and my components / avr is in another. I am trying to connect the set to the avr with HDMI because it is one cord vs, three + audio.
Are you saying that I can run my cable box into my tv, and run a digital audio out to my avr without having to mess with the HDMI at all? This would make my life much simpler. Is this is right?
