Don't worry, Zarak. I have come up from a newbie to veteran in a matter of two months!

My receiver and speakers have arrived! Sub comes Friday. The receiver is an Onkyo SR600. I have the fronts hooked up so I can get radio and CD, but I am not getting sound out of the TV. The R and L audio jacks from the TV are hooked into the audio on the receiver. If I turn up the receiver to max, I barely hear the TV. I adjusted the DB's in the setup up to 5(starts at 0), but that didn't help either. Since everyone's been helpful so far, I thought I'd give a post here a try.

Thanks.

What jacks are the audio L and R plugged into on your receiver? Do you have cable? If so, which audio outputs do you have on the cable box? Do you have a vcr hooked up to the tv or cable box? This info will help.

I realized what the problem was. I only have one set of audio in, and no audio outs on my TV. I don't have a cable box. I thought I might be able to run through my VCR and use that tuner, but it isn't much better. Perhaps I could get a cable box that has audio outs and use that as the tuner? That's gotta be a lot cheaper then a new TV, which I not ready to do at this time.

I have a TV, VCR, and DVD. My lone video in is currently hooked up to the DVD. DVD connects to the receiver with an optical cable. VCR is hooked to the TV through the TV cable connection.

I was talking to someone at work. It sounds like I can get a splitter for the cable. One goes to the TV, the other to the receiver. This allows that audio part to go to the receiver so I can get stereo sound. Sound good?

I ran into a couple of problems with this, unless I am just missing something.

1. My coax in on the receiver (Onkyo SR600) looks like a regular connection that a composite or component video would plug into. It does not accept a cable wire directly from the wall. Perhaps there is an adapter I can get for this?

2. Even if there is an adapter, the cable would be split. One input to the TV, the other to the receiver. How would the receiver know what audio tv channel to play? Would I run the audio outs on the receiver into the audio in on the TV? The tuner is still on the tv though, so it seems I would need to hit that first.

I'm currently running audio through the VCR, but it's old and not HIFI, so I only get mono output. If I nothing else will work I guess I could get a Y adapter to split the mono signal from the vcr so at least it outputs to both front speakers in mono.

I don't really want to upgrade the VCR, since I don't use it much already...just to watch the rare TV show I record. A TV upgrade to what I would want is not in the budget now. Perhaps a cheap cable box with AV in/out connections?

Any ideas, or am I just overlooking something.

Thanks in advance.

It seems the cable box will be the best solution.
