Love this forum. I just set up my Kenwood HTB-544 this weekend. Right now, I'm only running the audio through the reciever. I've been debating running the video through the reciever though it's not really necessary at this time. (BTW, dvd player is a playstation 2 with component cable/connection and vcr with composite cable/connection). I was just wondering if there's any difference between the actual "cable" used in composite and component cables. In other words, if I had an extra composite cable, could I use it to make a connection between the component video input and output of the receiver and tv, respectively, or must it be a component cable because that's somehow different?
