Its all plugged in. Wow what a major difference. I am still playing with the settings. As far as the location, unfortunately there is only one location where it will work, but it seems to be working there just fine. I am older and gave up some of my hearing to the Marine Corps. With my old system I left the closed captions on so that I could read the words even if I could not pick them out no matter how loud I turned the volume up. It appears for now I can turn that option off. Thanks a lot for yalls help. Now on to finding a good universal remote. I only have 4 components and am looking at the URC WR7 Universal Remote Control. Although it has great reviews, it also has a lot of negative reviews. Any thoughts.
