Let me start by saying I'm a newbie to all the multi ways to hook up a system. My TV a Zenith is 27" PIP with one A/V and one Variable Audio Output. I bought a Yamaha YHT 800 system( HTR 5550 Receiver, DV-C 6480 DVD and 6 Speakers). I have digital cable( Scientific Atlanta Explorer 2200). I have read many posts and get more confused with all the ways people hook their systems up. Hopefully, talking about mine will help clear things up for me. The cable box has S-Video. The receiver has 2 Audio/ 5 Video inputs, 4 S-Video, and 3 Optical/ 1 Coax Digital input. It has Component but not now for me. The DVD has S-Video and Digital. The Hi-Fi VCR just A/V hook-ups. All suggestions appreciated. Thanks in advance.
