    Question, right now I have an older model Panasonic 27" TV with just regular composite rca connectors. I also have a Pioneer dolby digital reciever with 5.1 speakers. The way I have it set is, I have my xbox connected to the receiver through optical digital audio (a/v advanced pack) and then the video from xbox to the TV. Is there a way I can connect the TV to the receiver so I can watch tv and listen to it through the speakers? I know I wont get dolby digital with TV lol

    If the Panasonic has standard audio outputs on the back you can connect it to the receiver and hear programs in two-channel stereo.

    If your tv has rca audio out connectors you can hook that up to the receiver. If not you need something like a vcr or cable box that will have the rca audio outs. I always thought it would be a great idea to put coaxial connectors on receivers, but I am sure for some obvious reasons they can't.
