    Help! Need help wiring HT system, and am a little lost on exactly what I need. Components I currently have are Denon 3802, Panasonic SVHS, Panasonic CP72, and Sony 27" TV with S-video input (no component input). What cables do I need? Analog cable only - no satellite. Thanks for any help.[​IMG]

    Since you have 2 devices that provide SVideo, here is my advice:

    Run SVideo cables from the SVHS unit and the DVD player to the receiver. Then run 1 long SVideo cable from the receiver to the TV.

    Radio Shack has some nice bundles of Left/Right/SVideo cables that would work well for the SVHS unit. You run the audio L/R to the L/R VCR inputs on the receiver.

    For the DVD player, you have a choice:

    - Buy a bundle with toslink optical and SVideo cables from Radio Shack.
    - Buy a SVideo cable, and a ordinary video cable and use this for the coaxial-digital connection between the DVD player and the receiver.

    Hope this helps.

    Thanks for the help. I'm still waiting on the CP72 anyway.
