I have my Bell PVR conected to my TV with an HDMI cable, is there any way I can connect the "video out" of my Denon receiver to the TV as well so I can see the receiver's "on screen" text when watching my PVR?
I don't see an RCA "video in" jack on the PVR so am I screwed?

Your Denon 2106 has component Video switching. To display the Denon settings on your TV display, connect Component from the PVR to the Denon input and Component output to the TV.
When done, resume use of HDMI.

I don't follow, you're saying connect the PVR to the receiver using RCA cords and RCA cords from the receiver to the TV? Then I guess I'd change the TV to watch the 'component IN' to watch the PVR, right?
Aren't I better off using the HDMI connection directly from the PVR to the TV though?
I have the receiver's video out connected to an RCA IN on the TV, but in order to see it I have to change the input from the HDMI IN to the VIDEO IN which means I get a black screen with the receiver signal, what I wanna be able to do is see the receiver's output while watching the PVR.
(I guess I shoulda bought a receiver with HDMI INS and OUTS but they weren't so common back then...
The TV cannot "see" two inputs at the same time. You need to switch to an input on the TV that carries the OSD from the AVR.

Are you saying I'm outa luck?
