After thorough research on this forum, I've decided on my first DVD player (Pan. CP-72) - now I will have to hook it up when it comes. Forgive my ignorance, but my experience is strictly with audio, not video, except for basic VCR hookup to the TV. I now have an NAD 7400 two-channel receiver that I will not be parting with, and may use with the TV if possible. We have an old TV with what I'm assuming are composite jacks (look like RCA - L,R), and no speaker jacks. ** Can I connect the DVD directly to the TV like a VCR, or do I need a reciever? ** Can I use the AUX input to somehow hook the receiver (with speakers) and DVD to the TV for two channel sound? The DVD player has DTS and Dolby 5.1 decoding - how will this affect a new receiver/TV purchase? **If I decide to get a new receiver so I can get surround sound, does the fact that the DVD player has the DTS and Dolby decoders mean I can save money by getting a receiver that doesn't have DTS or Dolby Digital surround? Do they make surround receivers without Dolby or DTS? Any recommendations? I really appreciate any help.
