    OK. I just got all of my equipment and components in today, but now I feel like an idiot. I am trying to hook up my older TV to my Kenwood VR509 receiver. The TV only has one coax input, nothing else. The receiver does not seem to have an output to match this. Anyone have any ideas?

    Thanks,

    John

    The first thing I'd recommend is to get a TV with dedicated A/V inputs. If this is out of the question, then an option would be to buy an RF modulator. You can get them at Rat Shack fairly cheap (a good one with auto switching will run @$30). You just run video from the receiver into the modulator,run an RF cable to your TV, select which channel you want (3 or 4), and you're off. Image quality will suffer, obviously, as the signal must be composite and goes through a modulate/demodulate cycle, but it should work. Hope this helps.
