I'm new to the forum, and wanted to say hello. I'm kind of a HT Newb, and was wondering what people thought of the system I purchased for my birthday. (8/17) TV: Sony KV34HS510 HTIB: Philips MX3900D So far I like the system, but I feel the equipment needs to be "tweaked" or I guess calibrated. Is that where the Avia DVD comes in? Oh yeah, one other question: My HTIB has a SPDIF "Digital In" jack, and my Dishnetwork 501PVR has a TOSLink "Digital Out" jack. I found a converter at partsexpress, but wasnt' sure if it was worth buying. Should I just stay with analog audio? Thanks everyone. Mike-Post Hmmm...guess I haven't been here long enough to post URLs.
