I have the video component cables running into the video 1 input, and the audio cables running through the audio 1 input. When I go to video one on the receiver, I get sound, but no picture.
Any thoughts as to what the deal is here? Originally I thought that maybe the video wouldn't transfer from the component inputs over to the TV via the HDMI output. But, then I remembered that I had a PS2 hooked up through the front jacks for a short time, and the video passed through fine. So that leads me to believe I don't have it hooked up correctly. Any help would be appreciated.
Other details, the TV is a 56" Sammy DLP 1080p and I'm connected via an HDMI cable to the receiver.
Do you have the 360 output set to 1080i/p? If so, that is the problem. The 247 will only pass analog signals (component, composite, etc.) through HDMI if they are 720p or lower. Anything higher will only be passed through the component out. That's why my 360 is connected directly to the tv.
