WRT OSD. If I remember correctly the CB III outputs a display if you have a composite, S-video card but not on the component card. I don't remember what all is displayed as I used a separate switch. ...

Sounds like you have a Superior and 6ch standard DAC. It's used for what you think if it's marked that way. In setup did you tell it you have a sub? Sounds like maybe the sub channel is folded into...

Just a minor addition. The gadget to convert 300 ohm to 75 is called a balun or balance transformer. If your rabbit ears have twin lead you'll need one.

Cannga is correct. The only digital bitstream the CB III will take is an AC-3 DD or DTS via SPDIF or Toslink.

You're welcome. Still don't know why that worked with the setup disk when my trusty rat shack meter would not. It did with the internal tone though.

Thanks gents. The D3 is first as I recall the unsubtle improvement when I went from Superior to D2.

Don't know. Theta has always been boringly reliable so it's hard to imagine them doing something that would be unstable. A thing that's not always true in the high end world.

I'd power the CB on first then the amp. As to the trigger find out what the amp uses, 12 V constant or pulse, then check what the CB is set for. Also, while maybe obvious, make sure you're using one...
