    I just purchased a game cube, I purchased this Svideo/Audio connector set for the game cube. Anyways the problem is as I have it now there is no audio cables going from the TV to my receiever, they all go from either the cable box to the reciever or the dvd to the reciever. So now my problem is if I plug my svideo and 2 audio cables into the tv, I won't get any sound since nothing is going out to the reciever from the tv. The only way I kinda got it working was connecting the 2 audio cables from the gamecube directly to the reciever on the VCR in. (but using the VCR IN is not the best way.) Now assuming anything I wrote made sense. My question is how am I suppose to get sound from my game cube to my reciever. So I don't need to change to VCR mode to get sound while playing the cube.

    hmm...if i understand you correctly

    do you still have any open inputs on your receiver? remember you can use any one you want except phono.

    if not, it sounds like the vcr trick is the only option.

    Heres whats on the back of my reciever:

    TV - 1 audio in, 1 video in, 1 svideo in, 1 video out, 1 svideo out.

    VCR1 - Svideo in, Video in, Video out, Audio In and Audio out.

    DVD - Svideo in, Video in, Audio in

    CD- Audio In

    Tape - bunch of random stuff


    Component, TV
    Component DVD IN
    Component TV Out


    And as of right now the Audio out which is probably what I need is going from the reciever directly to the cable box.

    Well, if you don't have a tape deck you could use tape in.
