What is the best way to connect everything together. Here is what I have: Sony 36XBR800 Yamaha RXV-2200 cable box I know how to hook all of the connections from the CD player and stuff so I don't need advice on those things. I just the TV today. So I called and got digital cable. Well the box I picked up at TW today isn't a HD box, they have to come install it. So I took it(the standard one). I know they need access to the back of the TV set up the HD box when they bring it. I was wondering if it is possible to hook up the HD box to the receiver without moving the TV once again for right now. Can I have the HD box hooked up to the Yamaha and have it put out on the Svideo. I dont think I can though. Here is what I am thinking might work the best. I hook the VCR, DVD up to the Yamaha. I hook the Yamaha up to the TV. But I don't always want to have to run the Yamaha if I am just watching something on tape. Does the audio pass through to the TV without having the surround on? I know this probably isn't clear and I am only confused even more now. LOL. Also, with the HD cable box, I know the box spits out 16:9 but I would like to have it just be at 4:3. My wife hates the 16:9 ratio. Can the Sony just display the HD without having the 16:9? Thanks. I'll probably post back again with more questions.
