    Can someone explain just how you would use the Monitor Audio Jacks. The Manual says you can connect a Graphic Equalizer ( that I understand ) Or a 3 head Cassets, or, Video Component. How would that work? You can't select those inputs with the Input control. A VCR is a Video Component. I don't get it......

    Also, I have S-Video out to TV. If I hook my Camcorder up to the AUX A/V inputs, I don't get a pic unless I use an S-Video cable. Is that normal?

    Thanks

    I have the VR-509 which is the same plus Component In/Out and a better remote so I can help you on that.

    The monitor in/out will take the sound before amplification send it to the Monitor-Out, then whatever is on the other end (EQ, PC Sound Card or whatever) will then send it back to the Monitor In with the changed sound.

    By changed I mean, increasing/decreasing certain frequencies with an EQ or applying some DSPs like SBLive's EAX or using WinAmp's Line-In Device along with the Vocal Remover DSP and Microphone input can be good for Karaoke (I haven't tried it yet, but I plan to)

    As for the Video Ins, very few receivers will convert across formats, so all the S-Video Ins will ONLY be sent to the S-Video Out, and all the Composite INs will ONLY be sent to the Composite Out. That's not a problem, it's just the way it works.

    Martin, thanks for responding. I think I understand the monitor jacks a bit better now. As I said, I inderstand an Equalizer but it says you could connect a Video component. Still don't understand that. Would the receiver amplify the Audio signals from a VCR and play through the RCVR speakers? What input would you put the RCVR on?

    I guess the main problem with the Composite vs the S-Vid is that my TV has both inputs but when the S-Vid is pluged in it overrides the Composite jack. I have to physically remove the cable. Bummer......

    Thanks again, John
