Hey, dudes! I need some advice WRT my RF demod box. Model is the B&K DT-1, which also serves as a digital switch-box (one co-ax input, one Toslink input, in addition to to the RF input). I'm completely green as far as these units go, as you may surmise. Here's the problem: the RF box has no on/off (power) switch, and I'm less than enthused with the prospect of leaving it on all the time as it tends to get a little warm (surely not as hot as a big-box receiver, but still on the warm side). Normally, I'd just plug it into the back of my receiver, but the demod's power cord is a three-pronged (grounded) affair; it obviously won't fit in the double-blade recepticle of my receiver. I currently have it plugged into my grounded power-bar, and I could simply use the power-bar's switch as the enire system's main on/off, but that would require me to re-program my VCR every single time I use it, and that ain't gonna happen. I have no wall outlets available, short of the use of an extension cord, and even then, I'm not enamoured of the idea of bending over and hitting a power-bar switch every time I want to watch TV, listen to music, watch a disc, etc. My ultimate goal is to have the demod box power up whenever the receiver is on, and not before. Anybody got any brilliant ideas? Is this where the use of "cheater" plugs comes into play? Can someone explain the nature of these to me? Thanks for all your help, fellas. Cheers! DS. P.S. I also need some ideas regarding the most vicious, agressive 5.1 LD soundtracks you might suggest. I discuss it in this thread. Thanks again!
