Upon doing some more research, Home Theater in a box is the term you were using, apparently in a derogatory way too lol. I guess it's the equivalent of a TV Dinner. What does already having a DVD player do for me right now though? Does my DVD player act as my Set Top Box the same way i presuming my Satellite would? So because i have an older TV, Digital output is a necessity? What piece of equipment should i make sure has this exactly? Sorry for the sheer amount of questions, but like i said, i'm starting from scratch here. You've already helped me tremendously though!
