Just got my first AV receiver, and spent a good few hours dismantling everything and re-cabling to include the receiver. So many connections is baffling me, and im hoping someone can maybe suggest the best set up. The system has 2 optical inputs and 1 coaxial input, along with several audio inputs and 3 component inputs/1 output. Now I have Virgin +, currently connected up with HDMI, Xbox 360 via component, DVD recorder via scart. My plan is to connect all three via component in to the av receiver, to try reduce the amount of cables. Id then have optical coming from the DVD recorder and XBOX 360, and purchase an optical to coaxial converter and run virgin+ through this (none of my items have coaxial at present. Is this the best way to hook it all up? Losing the hdmi i doubt would be a major problem due to the severe lack of hd on Virgin, and Im presuming a scart lead from Virgin+ to DVD recorder for recording programmes would be all thats required on top of above.
