    I am new to the Home Theater scene.. I have an Onkyo TX-575X and an old Sanyo television which doesn't have audio/video inputs or outputs.. My question is how would I need to hook my television into the receiver.. I can hook it all up through the VCR, but by doing this I only have 2 outputs which means I don't have enough video inputs and outputs to hook everything up.. So, help me tie this all in to the receiver where I can use the inputs and outputs of the receiver..

    I take it that buying a newer TV with inputs is out of the question? [​IMG]
    How about buying a RF Modulator ($30 at Radio Shack) that will accept a composite video input and turn it into a RF output to feed the TV's RF connector?
    Hook all the video sources to the receiver (they need to be composite video - one RCA cable), then run the receiver's video output into the RF modulator, and then run the output into the TV (uses that F-type connector with RG-59 or RG-6 (75 ohm) cable. Set the modulator to channel 3 or 4, set the TV to 3 or 4, use the receiver to select the source input to feed the TV.
