Re: Hooking Up Xbox, DVD Player, Receiver To TV

I tired it the original way and tripled checked the A & B Speakers. No dice. So, in a shot in the dark gamble, I decided to just run the XBox RCA Cables into the front ports of the DVD player. That worked as far as sending video to the TV. Only problem is that I have to switch the channel on the DVD player to Line 2 for Xbox to show up on screen and then back to Line 1 for DVD player to show up. That's not a problem because I'll never have use for both at the same time.

As for audio. I've always ran into into the Aux ports on the back of the Receiver, but here it wasn't working at all. So another shot in the dark was running it into the Phono ports, which works for me. So, this will do for the time being till I can upgrade my system again to higher quality components.

One question though, is there any way to lower the volume of the TV basically down to 0, while not affecting the volume of the receiver? On my older TV (prior to going with current Sony) I was able to do just that. But on the Sony, it's not independent of one another. I turn down TV, so goes the receiver. This isn't a deal breaker for me since I have everything else working now. Just curious if there is a way to revisit this particular set up from before.

NOTE TO SELF: Take picture of current cable hook ups so as not have to deal with this again.
