OT: Oooops!

Oooops!

Technology has caught up with me...

Looks like the modern world of home theater all talks HDMI.

(All my present A/V is 18 years old :-)

So I looking for receiver recommendations.

I'm looking at the Denon AVR-1312...

Is that really a problem? Our flat-screen TV takes multiple HDMI inputs (perfect for the Blu-Ray and the XBox Kinect), and we take the stereo audio out from the TV and pipe that into our Onkyo receiver (4- speaker, 100Wpc, bought off Craigslist for $50 last month). Michael

Do you need all that HDMI video switching capability? What I do (with a VIZIO TV/2 HDMI inputs and much older audio than yours) is to do the video switching with the TV controls. Then route the TV's analog audio line out into an old Sansui receiver/amp. -- Paul Hovnanian mailto:Paul@Hovnanian.com ------------------------------------------------------------------ Telemark: If it was easy, they'd call it snowboarding.

That reminds me, today one of our young employee's got a call from his live in girl friend, indicating that she was upset about something and was contemplating in taking out (destroying) the big screen TV, lap top and a couple of other things he likes. So he left in a hurry for home. Later we got a text message indicating that he didn't make it home in time. All that she threaten to do, she did! :) Oh well. Jamie

This Philips 55" set only has HDMI and "digital" audio outputs. My present A/V stuff (circa 1994) has only RCA jacks. ...Jim Thompson -- | James E.Thompson, CTO | mens | | Analog Innovations, Inc. | et | | Analog/Mixed-Signal ASIC's and Discrete Systems | manus | | Phoenix, Arizona 85048 Skype: Contacts Only | | | Voice:(480)460-2350 Fax: Available upon request | Brass Rat | | E-mail Icon at http://www.analog-innovations.com | 1962 | I love to cook with wine.

Yeah, oh well... is he planning to sue her? I guess she's going to be looking for a new apartment, huh. He can at least salvage the hard disk in his laptop... Michael
