I'm a newbie (sorry) and cross-shopping the Denon AVR 2803, Onkyo TX-SR800, and Harman Kardon AVR 525. Believe it or not, with my satellite, Xbox, and DVDs, sometimes I would prefer to listen to the audio through the TV set (late at night, wife asleep, etc...) rather than booming out of my receiver. Does anyone know whether I can pass through an audio signal from the receiver to the TV so that I can optionally turn down the receiver volume when necessary? I'm thinking that I should be able to connect the signal from the pre-amp outputs (left and right channel only) of any of these to the TV so that the pre-amp is always outputting to the TV audio signals from whatever video component is selected with the receiver. Or perhaps connect the audio output from one of the VCR inputs on the receiver to the TV to get the same effect? Can anyone help me out with some advice here?
