Right then Ekona...got a problem. Dad bought the VSXS300 and a set of decent Pioneer speakers. Today I set it up for him but there's a snag. We can't see the OSD on the telly. Now the manual says the OSD is not output through the HDMI cable and to plug in a phono plug from "monitor out" on the AVR to composite IN on the TV. We've done this and put the TV on AV as the source but there is no OSD, the screen just says No Signal.
The TV is a Samsung Series 6 LED 3D. For any composite connections it uses a weird looking AV/Component Adapter, the end that plugs into the TV has two headphone like plugs, one small and one large. The other end is audio left and right, RGB and Composite (yellow), the yellow composite shares the same plug as the green from the RGB.
The amp is running through it's demo phase, we need to run the MCACC set up but need to see the OSD to do that. The manual (on a fucking disc) mentions on several pages that the OSD will only output through the composite (monitor out) and this is plugged into the TV via that odd looking converter and the TV is on the right channel but there's no OSD from the amp.
Meanwhile we tested a blu-ray and that works fine, great picture, great sound comming out of all the speakers, though the centre speaker is a little too quite but we're hoping the MCACC will sort that out. Then there's always the other audio settings to play around with. We need the OSD to do that though.
Hold fire! I assumed the OSD would be on the screen straight away after turning the AVR on for the first time. Not so apparently you have to press the RECEIVER button then HOME to get the OSD on screen!
Well that allowed us to run the MCACC set up. Afterwards though we couldn't get ANY HDMI sources on screen apart from sound.
First tried the blu-ray again, pressed BD on the AVR remote and we can hear what's playing but can't see it. If we press the source button on the TV's remote HDMI 2 is greyed out and if you select it it says there is no signal. Next tried the V+ box, same thing can't select HDMI 2 on the TV which is the port the AVR is plugged into (from HDMI OUT on the back of the AVR). Lastly tried the DVD/DVR and the same there, there is sound on all three appliances but no signal. So tried a different HDMI cable from the AVR to the TV, no change.
It worked fine before running the MCACC set up and no we can't get a picture from anything! HELP!
