First off, let me say hello to everyone here and its great to be aboard.


I am planning on doing a system in my bedroom. I wanted to get your input and suggestions on what I should add and how I should run it. This is what I have so far...


Reciever -- RX-V1000

TV -- Panasonic CT-34WX50 (16x9)

Game console -- PS2 (optical audio and component connections)

Front spkr -- B&W DM 602 S2

Center spkr -- B&W CC'3

Rear spkrs -- B&W LM1

Subwoofer -- SPL1000

Remote -- Yamaha RAV2000


I need to add a progressive scan DVD player, SVHS, a good CD music bank and a good HDTV DSS system (Dish and reciever) In addition, I want to use good quality cables and wires. Should I go with Monster cable or is there a better alternative. Should I add anything else, or is that a good setup for a decent A/V system.


Thank you all for your help and please feel free to make suggestions. Thank you again!

Connect MON. out (or whatever its called on your HT rcvr) to TV in, everytime you want to use a video source youll need to have the TV on aux video input, run all video sources through HT rcvr and the select the source via HT rcvr. Run everything you can via component, if possable. Youll need a normal RCA cable to connect form sub to sub preout on rcvr. I might get nailed for this but, I wouldnt recommend Monster Cable, save yourself some money and get cables from Radio Shack. There the same quality and cost a lot less.

I tried doing that with my Yamaha. I had the source devices (DSS and DVD) component into the RX-V1000 and then I ran another component cable from the monitor out to the Component 1 in on my TV. That did not work for some reason. So I had to send the video source to the tv and the audio source to the reciever. Can anyone help out with this?

Hmmm....Strange, As long as all devices were connected via component then AFAIK, that set up should work. I do almost exactly what your doing, but instead of component I use s-video.

I'm Sorry I'm not familiar with your reciever so this may be un-useful but maybe you have to ensure no s-video devices are hooked to it and/or maybe you have to set video passthrough on the reciever to component. Have you looked through the manual if you have one? If you just connect only the reciever to the tv using the component cables and leave everything else disconnected can you see on-screen menus from the reciever on the TV?


By the way, I was there during Andrew and a whole lot of other ones like David and so forth (but not Floyd). Andrew was the only one that leaves an impression though and oh what an impression.

:eek: :eek: :eek:



Good Luck,


Brian
