Thanks for responding, I'm trying to get my surround sound to work. I can only get my two front speakers to work. I have a bose surround, with a denon 1909 reciever (which I found out is one of the harder ones to set up), sony bravia hd tv, and an x-box 360. As you can tell, I'm trying to set it up for a kick butt gaming system. And I just swithed over to verizon fios. My wife made me move my system to the spare bedroom so now I have all these cables hanging around. I'm trying to figure out what is the best way to hook everything up. Again, Thank you for your advice.
