Okay, So my family and recently moved to Okinawa, Japan from the US, where I had the most awesome HDTV system set up. I am listing what electronics I have so anyone here can give me a suggestion on what I can do with the following problem.
LED/LCD TV 55: Samsung " Model UN55B6000VFXZA
BluRay Player: Samsung Model BD-P1600/XAA
AV Receiver: Onlyo TX-SR 707
WD HD Live
Surround Speakers: Onkyo 7.1
I just got my Cable TV installed from the overseas company called "Mediatti Communications". The cable guy showed up with this old set box from the '90's. The box is a Pioneer "Advanced Analog Terminal" model #: BA-v2000c.
The rear panel has three out possible connector. Coax-Cable in, Coax Cable Out and a weird VCR out female jack. in The cable guy came and connected it the box directly to the TV antenna jack set the TV to channel 3 and left.
What I need help with is a way to connect the box to my AV Receiver in hopes of using my surround and possibly up-converting the signal. I look at the idea of using an old VCR and use it as tuner/pass through then using A/V Cables to my A/V Receiver. Is this a plausible route? Please help. I HDTV is not worth seeing if the signal is crap.
