    I just set up my new Sony HT-DDW700 and i think that it is a very decent HT system for what i spent.
    The only problem i have encountered so far after 1 day of ownership is that I can tape a show but the playback has no sound. I tried alot of different things with no luck. The manual indicates that the receiver does not allow recording(DVD or VCR). If this is really the case, i will return the system.

    Can someone please help?

    Thanks,

    Hi Evan - please describe how your system is currently cabled. Ensure that you are outputting RCA audio (red and white cables) from your VCR to your receiver, not to your TV. Also ensure that you have selected that source on the receiver when you are watching your VCR. [​IMG]

    Its working now. Thank you for the help.I had the Cable box audio going to the receiver (as diredted in the manual) so i swithched the them to the VCR.
    Now i get the sound. The TV now plays on Video ! and i have to have the VCR powered on to hear TV sound.
