I kept hooking the Xbox back up to my TV directly to verify that everything was working. I even tried using just the RCA video cable and nothing.
I went into the onscreen setup menus and made sure everything was assigned properly.
I went into the video menu and the only option available is upconvert and I toggled that back and forth a bunch of different times.
I do get audio. Just no video...
I must be missing something here?
Not sure I'd be able to help you as you tried lots of different things. Just a few things though... First, an obvious question: why don't you use HDMI with your Xbox? It's really much simpler that way
So you tried connecting the component output of the Xbox to both the DVD or DVR inputs of the 1020. These are in fact labeled "IN1" and "IN2", and by default are assigned to the DVD and DVR/BDR "input functions", respectively. You say you get audio: where did you plug your audio?
I ask because by default, if you use digital inputs, the COAX-1 input is associated with the DVD input function; OPT-1 is associated with the TV/SAT input function and OPT-2 is associated with DVR/BDR. This is assignable, but those are the defaults (see p.14 of the manual). So if you did not reassign the input terminals of the various input functions, and used OPT-1 for example, with the default setting, this is associated with TV/SAT. If you hear audio on OPT-1, then it means that you're selecting the TV/SAT input function (you may have renamed it), and by default, it is not associated with any video input (strangely perhaps).
I hope what I'm saying is clear... It's just that the "input functions" (e.g. DVD, BD, TV/SAT, DVR/BDR, HDMI 1-4, HDMI 5 and CD in the settings of the receiver) are simply labels that can be renamed, and which are associated by default to input terminals (COAX-1-2, IN1-2, OPT-1-2, HDMI-1-5). And these associations can be changed in the Input Setup menu.
That being said, you seem to have checked that out, so maybe the problem lies elsewhere. You say that you toggled the V.CONV (upconversion) option a few times... be sure to set in to ON. You should leave RES (output resolution) to AUTO or PURE and ASP (aspect ratio) to THROUGH.
I'm assuming here that you are using HDMI for the receiver-to-tv connection?
Here's a quite puzzling bottom note at p.41 of the manual:
For high-definition video (using component video connections), or when digital video conversion is switched off (in Setting the Video options on page 70), you must connect your TV to this receiver using the same type of video cable as you used to connect your video component.
It seems to suggest that if you're using component for HD video between the Xbox and the receiver, then you'd have to use component between the receiver and tv. This contradicts the upconversion diagram on p.22, but perhaps it is only valid for standard-definition Component input. So the 1020 would no be able to convert analog HD video to digital (HDMI) HD video.
If this is true, then it means that you have two solutions: use HDMI for your XBox, or use standard-definition for the Xbox. I know what I would do...
EDIT: I missed another bottom note on p.22 of the manual, which seems to confirm the above hypothesis:
The signal input resolutions that can be converted from the component video ipnut for the HDMI output are 480i/576i, 480p/576p, 720p and 1080i. 1080p signal cannot be converted.
So if the Xbox is configured to output 1080p on component, it cannot be converted to digital and sent to the tv via HDMI. The best options are then either to use HDMI for the xbox, or set the Xbox resolution to 720p; this is the maximum resolution of most games anyway. It may be tempting to set the V.CONV parameter to PURE in that case; not sure if upconversion from 720p analog to 1080p digital is better than sending straight 720p analog-to-digital to the TV.
