I recently purchase a Nintendo Wii. I am try to run it through a Denon Avr X8500H that is connected to a Samsung Q900 TV. I have the tv connected to the receiver via HDMI. The Wii has the old red, white and yellow AV cables. I have it connected to the game input in the back of the avr unit. I turn the power on the game console and select game input on the receiver then select Denon X8500 on the tv and I get no video signal on the tv. It will just read Denon across the screen. I do not know wht else to do. Can anyone possibly direct on what to do?

You need to go into the setup menu and configure the analog inputs and maybe set it to unconvert to HDMI.

The video conversion feature should be on by default but issues may arise with certain game consoles when connected using a composite(Yellow) cable. This is why the unit also includes a composite(Yellow) Monitor output port. But, this doesn't do any good if the TV does not have a composite(Yellow) input port or breakout port for analog connections. I don't think the Q one connect box has composite or breakout ports. If the Denon cannot convert the signal, you would need an RF Modulator to convert the composite connection signal of the Wii into a coaxial connection signal and use a coaxial cable to the ANT IN port of the Q one box. Let's just hope the Video Conversion feature just needs to be flipped on and works.

I'm not familiar with the 8500H but the video and audio inputs usually have to be assigned to a specific input within the menu system to make it active. Then you can select that input. With composite video, exit the Denon menu because it may not display with the menu active. My Wii came with both composite and component video cables (5 connector cable with red + white for audio and green, blue, red for video). The component video signal will be better quality. You should be able to use the Cable, DVD or Blueray component connections and use the corresponding Cable / DVD / Blueray audio inputs.

If the assignment for the Game input has not been changed to remove the HDMI input as the preferred port, it may not look to the composite(VIDEO) input port for a signal. Change the Game HDMI setting so that it shows a dash and not a number for the corresponding port. Then, see if the conversion works. If you also have the component video cables, you'd reassign one of the component(COMP)input connectors to the Game input source. Hope you work it out.

Thank you for your help and input.

I tried assigning the inputs and that didn’t seem to work. So after some further research I found a composite av to hdmi converter. And that seemed to do the trick.
