I love this forum, I have hardly been a member for a full month yet, and I have received so much helpful advice! Of course, I need more. I have just purchased a Denon DVD 1600 online and I have a couple of questions. My receiver is a Yamaha 1105 (same as the 795a as far as I know). Should I use the player's built-in DD/DTS decoders or the ones in my receiver? Are they of different quality? Also, to take full advantage of the DVD-Audio portion of it, do I use the 2 ch. output signal, or is the optical cable going to sound just as good? Am I hooking the player up using both? I was using my X-Box as my DVD player. Now that I am getting a dedicated player, I have a new problem. My tv has only one S-video input. I can't use my receiver to switch the S-video signals because I cannot assign the optical inputs to a different area. Two optical inputs: CD and DVD. Or does anyone know if I am wrong about assigning the optical inputs? Are there affordable S-video switch boxes I can buy? If I have to, I'll just switch the cable back and forth between machines until I can afford a new tv, but I'd rather not play that game. I watch more movies than play games, but the X-box looks terrible on my tv when using composite. S-video looks awesome. Well, as always, I appreciate all of your help.
