I'm in the process of re-wiring my system with all new cables and I'd like some opinions. Most of you reading this know what a tangled web we weave with all the interconnect cables behind our HT systems. I'd like to avoid as much mess and extra cost as possible. I'm wondering how some of you wire certain components. For example: A typical DVD player has digital audio outputs and analog audio outputs. Do you connect both? (I know it's not necessary to run both optical and coaxial digital). Also, what about the multi-channel (5.1) outputs? Do these do anything noticeably different from digital output to a receiver? (My receiver has multi-channel inputs but I'm not using them right now). Am I missing anything? DVD players usually have composite video, S-video and component video. My TV doesn't have component inputs so that's a no-brainer. I always watch DVD's through the S-video so that's probably the only one I'll hook up. I am just wondering what most of you do. Do you connect all? I guess what I'm asking is this: Do you fill up all the holes on your components just because you can, or do you just connect the ones you use?
