First I would like to say hi. This is my first time in here and it's great. I just got into home theater after I bought my wide screen. I didn't know much about it so I just bought a packaged set. Now its time to hook it up. I have 2 questions. First, how can I hook my tv up to play audio. I know how to do it from like a dvd player but I also want audio when im watching HBO or other movies. Can i just go from my audio out on my tv to say a cd in on the receiver? Also, im going to be needing alot of wire to run the audio/video from the receiver to the tv approx. 50ft of both. Is there anywhere I can get this without having to spend a fortune. So far all I have found is 12ft pieces I would have to connect together. Thanks guys and this forum is great.
