A giant step ..... for me !!

For almost 4 years my Sony 32" CRT, and Pioneer 'Home Cinema' (with DVD) have performed brilliantly.

Last week my daughter kindly bought me a Yamaha RX-V357 (plus speakers) ....... but just a quick glance at the back gave me palpitations !!

Anyway the plan is to buy a rear projection Sagem TV and Philips 5900 DVD player. They both have HMDI sockets so should be easy to set up. In addition I have a DigiFusion FVRT200 which I hope to continue using.

My simple question concerns the sound output :

What is this BEST and simplest way ..... to conect the new TV, DVD (and if possible PVR) to the Yamaha AV receiver ?

The alternatives appear endless, and in addition I do not believe the Digifusion handles digital output.

Thanks to anyone who can help.

Connect the dvd player to the amp with either digital coaxial or optical cable.
Connect the Digifusion to the amp with stereo analogue cables as I have just looked at the specs and it doesnt support digital out :thumbsdow
Connect the TV with stereo analogue cables unless it have digital outs, then use that.
Depending upon your budget Mark Grant makes some top quality cable (in the cable power buys forum) for :beer: money.

At a later date it could be worth it to upgrade the cheap speaker cables with better quality cables.

Just be carefull not to buy to thick cables as I think the speakers only have spring clips. The adapters are £3/pair if you do :eek:
