Can't get video signal from DVD through Yamaha Receiver to new HD TV?

I got a new Hitachi LED TV and am trying to hook up my surround sound to work with the DVD. I can get the audio signals working great but I can't get a video signal through the receiver to the TV? Is anyone out there knowledgable in this regard? I am pretty good with this stuff but worked on it for some time last night and just could not get it working... If I run all the signals from the DVD into the Receiver inputs, the TV does not recognize any additional "components" and can't pickup the Video Signal from the DVD. I would think I would need to run some video signal directly from the DVD to the TV input somehow? Can anyone assist? Thanks so much. Rick.



Re: Can't get video signal from DVD through Yamaha Receiver ...

Sounds like the receiver may not be switching the video signal, or it's not getting to the outputs. I would try connecting directly from the DVD to the TV (make sure your TV input is selected properly: composite, HDI, S, etc)
