    Before I buy a pair of composite to s-video cables to hook up my vcr to my avr, I am trying to find out if the Channel 3-4 switch on my vcr will pose a problem. Every other video source on my avr uses s-video, which requires my TV to be tuned to channel 90. So my vcr would have to be tuned to channel 90 even though the physical switch on the vcr is still going to supply a choice of channel 3 or 4. Does anyone know if this matters, or will it have no effect on my setup?

    No effect. The channel 3/4 switch only affects the r.f. coax connection. The VCR composite output is always on. (The VCR composite input is on when you set your VCR to it.)

    Tks, Chuck. I didnt think it would, but the AVR instructions and VCR instructions were typically poor.
