    Setting up my new HTiB

    So I've received my home theatre and TV. All is set up and working well (although I did have to exchange the HTiB after about a week because it was randomly shutting off). I've omitted my Sony Media Player, as the HTiB does everything it used to do. I'm now thinking I'd like to hook up an...

    Thanks for the informative reply! You know, after spending several hours researching and contemplating exchanging part of my system, I came across a section in my HTiB's manual referring to two HDMI inputs. This conflicted with the spec sheet, which didn't indicate any HDMI. A bit more...

    Setting up my new HTiB

    Hi, all. Like a typical newb, I bought a system without much of any research or prior knowledge. I'm mostly ok with this, as this setup is replacing a JVC stereo hooked up with coaxials to a 27" Toshiba. This is all mid-90s vintage, so I think that I'll be happy with any properly-functioning...
