Well, the JVC will be here Monday. Hoping you can help me on this. I think I am going to need some new cables to hook stuff up for best performance. The TV is the JVD HD-52G787. The DVD player will be the Panasonic DVDS52K http://www.vanns.com/shop/servlet/it...ures/486099489 And my A/V receiver is the Marantz SR5600 http://us.marantz.com/Products/1120.asp My video source is a dual receiver DVR from Dish Network (non-HD, though I probably should upgrade to an HD one) My CD player is a Marantz CC4300 http://us.marantz.com/Products/1115.asp I have two goals. Reduce the number of wires. I have an absolute jungle behind the TV stand. And get the best performance out of the equipment. Obviously I am going to want HDMI to connect the DVD to the TV I assume. But also likely an Optical cable to connect the CD player to the receiver. What about from the TV to the receiver, and/or DVD to the receiver. And the Dish Network box to the TV? Lets assume I do not own a single cable at this point and nothing is hooked up. I am going to the store. What do I need to come home with to hook all this up and get optimum performance with the minimum number of wires running all over the place? I know nothing about cables and connections. Know nothing about particular brands. Just looking to get what I need at a resonable (cheap) price. Will likely purchase from bluejeanscable.com or monoprice.com (unless another may be better). So what does my shopping list look like? Thanks!
