I just installed an Onkyo 595 receiver, Pioneer DVD player, cable box, Mistubishi 35" TV, and Panasonic VCR. Here are my dilemmas: The Mitsubishi is an OLD TV with only two inputs (TV and cable). When I first hooked up the system I used S Videos for the DVD to the receiver and then the TV to the receiver. The DVD worked fine, but when I trued to watch TV or watch a VHS tape I got sound from the cable box (VCR), but I could not get video. This is because I was using just the one input and the VCR could not read the S Video. The tech support guy at Crutchfield said that I needed to get a new TV with more inputs to alleviate this. For now I am using analog video for everything (DVD and VCR) and it works fine, but am I really missing DVD quality without the S Videos? I know now that composite is the best, but my TV has no composite connections. The other suggestion that I thought of is to buy a new VCR that accepts S Video and then I can use the one input for both DVD and VCR using S Video. WIll this work? So I wouldn't use analog for everything, but S videos. Does any of this make sense?? The other issue is that when I use the TV through the cable box (VCR) the sound comes out of the home theater speakers only, not the TV, which is fine. When I switch the input on the TV to get the TV signal I only hear sound through the TV speakers, and the home theater speakers keep the sound that was on the cable box. I have the audio out from the VCR to the receiver. If I move that to the audio out of the TV, have I solved this problem? Will sound now come out of the home theater speakers regardless what input on the TV I am using? Also will this automatically power out the TV speakers or will I have to manually turn them off?This is not a big deal because my wife and kid can watch TV and not necessarily have to use the HT system. I hope I made sense in my questions. I am new to home theater and am trying to set this up myself. I was going to hire a professional until answers to an earlier post of mine convinced me to try it myself. I saved a few hundred dollars and I am glad I did! By the way I am already thinking that I should have bought the Onkyo 696 instead of the 595...a little more power. I thought I was done buying stuff! THANKS IN ADVANCE FOR ALL OF THE HELP!
