thank you Jchin
"Well" to me would be no issues. I won't be connecting it by way of hdmi but by component, and I am aware it takes optical cable to get 5.1 sound and I do have that.
Ok so pass-thru means, in my circumstance, that I will have to use the receiver and 5.1 when using the xbox?
Another question I have is how fast does it take for the receiver to change inputs? Another concern i have is with lipsync which from what i've read affects some people and others never experience the issue, is that a reasonable assessment?
Basically this is my first receiver or surround sound setup so its pretty new to me how all this will work together. I still have no clue how I'm going to set up the speakers since the room itself and its current configuration is going to make it a challenge. Not to mention this will be my first time with wiring speaker connections, so i'm really looking forward to this
Thanks again Jchin
