    Right now I'm running my cable TV coax through the VCR to the TV (I have a 42" Panasonic plasma, which has only S-Video and RCA video inputs). I want to split the incoming signal between audio and video so that audio goes to my pre/pro and video goes to the TV, pretty much what the VCR does today, but it's old and it's mono and I'd like to take it off the path, back to the bedroom.

    Does anybody know of a (stereo) box that would do that or how to build one? Thanks.

    You need a TV tuner to be able to do that. Ask your cable provider for a cable box with stereo RCA outputs.

    Or...you can go out and get a good S-VHS VCR to replace your old mono one. I'm sure you'll be very happy with it.

    Your TV doesn't have a CATV input? If it does, does it have stereo audio outputs?

    Thanks, Bill. I'll ask my cable provider if he can get me one of those. The TV has RGB, component, composite and S-Video inputs, but no cable. Sounds like I'll have to replace that VCR...
