I have an RCA modem RT2280 home theatre system and a RCA tv and Sanyo DVD player and I seem to be swimming in video connections.
1. Right now I have the TV connected to the receiver with an Svideo conx and standard video/AudioL/AudioR connections. Can I plug the Svideo directly into the DVD player and bypass the receiver without losing my sound?
2. The DVD player is hooked to the receiver with Svideo, digital/optical cable, and video/AudioL/Audio$ connections. That's three video connections! What is the best setup for this to get the most from my DVD player?
The RCA instructions are pretty difficult to understand for a person who's never owned a receiver before and, although the pictures seem to show things hooked up the way I have done it, it seems like video connection overkill. And try and get any tech support for Canada. Things have been working fine for a while now but it just seems like too many connections. I'd appreciate any opinions on this.
