I have it connected to the DVD input (video). The DVD input is assigned "1-RCA". and the video composite is in the composite input of the DVD. There are no other source assigned to DVD. I get audio, but no video. I've looked in the manual, p.46 but am no further ahead.
Still in the Input Setup menu, under Video, Video Select is set to TV. Whe set to Source, the GUI disappear(?). I don't understand as all the other input, this option is set to Source
do I need a composite to come out of my receiver to the tv?
Note that the composite inputs are not assignable, the "1-RCA" refers to the COMPONENT video input, not the composite. I would make sure nothing else is assigned to the DVD input (e.g. change that to "None") and make sure the SNES composite is plugged into the one labeled "DVD" if you are trying to use the DVD name. Also of course make sure Video Conversion and the i/p scaler is turned on.
The Video Select sounds like the problem, leave it on "Source". That tells the receiver to use the video from the source actually assigned to that name. If you switch the Video Select setting to "TV" it is expecting the video to come from the source connected/assigned to the "TV" input, not the DVD input.
So make sure:
- all composite connections are hooked up to the "DVD" input labels
- all Input Assign settings are set to "None" for DVD
- Video Conversion is ON and i/p scaler is set to "Analog" and "Auto" resolution for the DVD input
- Video Select for the DVD input is set to "Source"
With these settings it SHOULD work and convert the DVD composite feed to HDMI output at 1080p. If it STILL doesn't work, then it might just be that the old composite video from the SNES isn't compatible with the conversion. There is a note in the manual that the video conversion function may not work for certain old game systems and other old sources.
You might want to test the settings by using a different source, e.g. try hooking up a DVD player or a cable box with composite video to the "DVD" input and see if it converts successfully to HDMI output. If they work, and the SNES doesn't work with the same settings, then you know it's some fundamental incompatibility with SNES video.
