Is it not possible to assign a video source while listening to CDs? I want to be able to watch DirecTv while listening to a CD via XLR. My DirecTv Genie can output HDMI & component simultaneously. I have both HDMI & component hooked up to the 8801. I tried assigning Component input 1 in the CD column in the Input Assign menu but there is no video. I was able to do this on my Denon 5308CI. Can I do this on the 8801 or am I doing something wrong?
Not sure about the video assign for CD. As an alternative why not run an HDMI or components from your sat box to your display.
