I have been reading throughout this forum wanting to find a way with my problem. I have a Toshiba 50hdx82, an Onkyo 650, and a Panasonic DVD-CP72. I connected my dvd player to the receiver using an optical cable and used a Component to connect the DVD to the TV (I know I should be using svideos for less remote controls, I will get to that later). Now, my problem is this. I don't want to connect my cable through the VCR since I lose reception if I do so, plus I don't really use the VCR anymore. So, the cable is connected directly to the TV which is set to "ant 1". Since there is no setting for "ant 1" on the receiver, I need to move it to "video 1". Is there some kind of a device to split the cable so it because a video, and audio cables (yellow, red, white). Or is there another way to have my onkyo system be used to hear the sounds from my TV? Speaking of remote controls, can anyone suggest a remote thats under $150 that would be perfect for my setup? Thanks.
