    I got myself this system yesterday, and I'm not sure which rca jacks to plug my tv into. From the manual, it looks like its the Video 1 Play IN jacks, but i get no sound, i tried it in the PHONO jacks, and it works, but everything sounds scratchy (like the tv reception is bad) but when i use the tv speakers, it sounds fine...any ideas? what am i doing wrong?
    thanks

    Plug the RCA jacks in to either Video 1 or Video 2 "PLAY IN", then look on the front of your receiver and push the "input mode" button until it says "Analog".
    Still no sound? go into your TV's audio menu and enable your RCA output, look for something that says "Speakers off, fixed output" or something to that effect.
    I have a Kenwood receiver and use Video 2 for TV and Video 1 for VHS.
    DO NOT plug into Phono!
    Let us know!
    And welcome to the HTF!

    No problem craig. No Video 1 does not have a digital input, so your only option is Analog.
    Did you have to enable your TV or Receiver? I ask because you should have gotten sound out of Video 1, if your TV's RCA's were activated..
