I am looking for the greatest flexibility & ease of use when connecting a dvd, vcr & satellite to the 45tx. I want the wife to be able to watch tv, or dvd or vcr without having to use the receiver. Is this possible? I had thought about only running the digital audio from the dvd and the satellite & the analog sound from the vcr to the receiver. That way she could still wath everything the way she does now, but still be able to have the sound run through the receiver for HT purposes. I also need advice on the best way to get the tv sound through the receiver for HT. Again, I also want to be able to watch tv without using the receiver. Can this be done by using the audio out from the tv into the receiver & still maintain use of the tv speakers? By using this method, does it mute the tv speakers?
