    Setting up my new HTiB

    If you don't have ARC, you don't have ARC, period. Connect a toslink. Does your DVD/HTiB have a toslink? You own it, you should know. Edit: No your HTiB does not have an optical input. If you just bought it, return it for one that does. Edit 2: Your HTiB does have an analog(didn't read which...

    Setting up my new HTiB

    Yep, that TV does not support ARC...nor does it have any other form of audio out(can't believe there are TV made this way). So, your only choice is to buy an outboard tuner. Luckily all of them have toslink and coax.

    Setting up my new HTiB

    Yeah somehow I missed the question of "all these inputs"... This is how it is hooked up. Onkyo TX SR707 gets the HD DVR, Acer Revo and BD player via HDMI. The Wii and Atari Flashback(which this isn't even stereo) are both connected to the TV first(I rarely play the Atari with surround sound...it...

    Setting up my new HTiB

    When you get a HD "set top box"(makes no difference if it is Dish Net/Dir/Com/TW) that will take the place of the tos-link from the TV. Every TV I can think of, anything you connect via HDMI is relegated to 2.0 when it exits the tos-link back to the HTiB. There are "some" TV that relay 5.1 from...

    Setting up my new HTiB

    It isn't really a headache. You will have to do what "everybody" did before ARC(by the way, ARC requires you to use the HDMI-CEC...which LG calls Simplay...which is HARDLY simple...). Connect the HTiB to the TV with a HDMI. Buy a tos-link(Amazon has them for $5) and connect the TV back to the...

    Setting up my new HTiB

    Tos-link is Toshiba link, similar to SP-DIF (the same cord works for both) SP-DIF is Sony/Philips Digital InterFace(or something like that) Anyway. The "Optical output" on your TV is a tos-link/SP-DIF... Or more "correctly".... SP-DIF is "the cable", tos-link is "the connector". At one time they...

    Setting up my new HTiB

    Your Sony Media Box(I'm not familiar with it...) can not be connected to the LG HTiB. (well, it can just for audio...but that is useless) You will need to send its HDMI to the LG, then as long as the TV and HTiB both support ARC(you have their owners manuals)...you don't need any further...
