I again thank everyone for helping me on my first problem. Hopefully everyone can help me out on my next roadblock. I'll put all my equipment again... My Receiver is a Yamaha 5590. My TV (I think) is a Phillips 27PS60S 27 in. It has 3 inputs, 1 output, and 1 RF (duh). A/V Composite Inputs- 1 (side) A/V Outputs Composite- 1 (rear) (Labeled Monitor Out) S-Video Inputs- 1 (rear) Number of RF Jacks- 1 (rear) Number of Component Inputs- 1 (rear) I'm not sure what the others are labeled, but I can go check if it's necessary. My speakers are PSBs- 2 pairs 4T, Sub6i, 9c I'll be hooking up the following... VCR (PVV4524S)- I may want to have this hook up to the front ports of the receiver, because it may be traveling back and forth between two televisions (if I can get this problem fixed, anyway). The VCR actually only came with a regular RF cable. No A/V cables at all. Luckily I had an extra. Either way, this component isn't really a problem yet, because I haven't gotten to hooking it up. The XBOX (also the DVD player). Component Video Hookups. The Gamecube and the Playstation 2 have a shared S-Video Hookup. I want to use the HT system for everything-- TV, VCR, and Video Games/DVDs. If any more info is needed on components, let me know... Here's what's going on. The Xbox is working fine. All hookups seem to be correct. The PS2/GC hookup has something wrong with it. I have the Red/Whi/Yel/S-Video cable going from the console to the receiver and I have Red/Whi/S-Video cables from the receiver to the S-Video. Is it because there isn't a regular Yellow video cable? Would this matter? I also have an optical cable I could use from the PS2 to the receiver if I wanted, but it's not yet being used. I'm a little confused as to what the optical cable is for (The S-video cable I bought came with it). The television has no optical hookups. The sound seems perfect (except for the below problem). But the picture is blurry, constantly looses color, and is distorted. The other problem I'm having is the sound isn't quite working correctly... at least, I don't think it is. I have the AVIA DVD, and when I was checking all the channels, I noticed that the "RS(Right Surround)" and "LS(Left Surround)" checks are coming out of both surrounds, and maybe all speakers. I have tried this in all the different Presets (6CH Stereo, Hall, Church, etc.) and nothing changes except for the volume/effect of the sound. When I do the innate receiver check through all the speakers, it works fine. All channels are separate. Also, as I'm pretty sure this may be related, on the front of the receiver, only the [L] and [R] are lit up, when, I'm assuming [RS], [LS], [SWF], AND [C] should be lit up... So, what am I doing wrong?
