Thanks guys - so, right NOW I have my damaged cd player hooked up to CD imputs. Would I then do the rca's into WHAT IMPUT? I'm not sure what you mean about "coaxil and optical". My ignorance, non tech. On my old receiver (1989) it has imputs for PHONO, CD, Tape 1, and DAT/Tape 2 in one section on left. Then toward center there are TWO seperate areas: AUDIO: w/play vid 1, play vid2 with Rec., Left Right. & Then the last area of imputs has : VIDEO: in play white, in play red, and out rec and another out record imput.
UGH> sorry , wish I could put up a pic of back of my receiver. I don't know which IMPUT your saying I should use. Again, my ignorance. If I can't figure it out I will have to wait and get someone here to come over and I don't think I know anyone any more savy about this than myself! sigh.
the impossible happens everyday
