I am helping a friend setup his HT system. He has an Onkyo SR601, a Panasonic DVD player and a digital cable box. Going to a Panasonic rear projection.

We want to set it up so that the Onkyo works as the "switch" for the whole system. So we hooked up the DVD player and cable box to the receiver, then the receiver to the TV. But I am having problem getting all the video to come through. Here is the setup:

DVD to Receiver: Component Video and Toslink digital
Cable box to Receiver: RCA video, RCA audio
Receiver to TV: Component video.

If we set the TV to the correct input, we can see the DVD player and hear the sound. But if we switch to Cable, no such luck.

Does/can the Onkyo convert the composite video signal to component and send it through to the TV? If so, how do you set it up?

I would appreciate any input on how to setup this particular receiver with the above parameters.
