Just to be clear - you are using COMPOSITE (red/white for audio, yellow for video) right? And you plugged the red/white/yellow cable into the input labeled "DVD" on the back of the Denon?
Does it work if you connect video straight to the TV?
If so, as a troubleshoot, connect another composite (yellow RCA) video cable from the MONITOR OUT on the back of the Denon to a video input on the TV. see if it can at least pass through the composite video, so we can narrow down the problem to something with the analog > HDMI conversion.
