So, a couple of new toys coming and I want to make the best of my set-up. A little help from you guys in the know would be greatly appreciated. Here's where I'm at..... Panasonic TH50PX60 - Audio output to amp via digital coax, is there any need to also run analogue phono's ? Aerial from 970. Sony RDRHX970 DVD-R/HDD/FV - HDMI to TV, coax to amp, aerial in from VCR and on to TV. VCR - Scart to TV, phono to amp, aerial in and on to 970. Cable - Scart to TV, 2nd scart to VCR with Macrovision buster to allow recording of 'On-Demand' programming (possibly switch this to the 970). The audio phono outputs have never worked so we use the VCR to send audio to the amp, maybe the new box will remove this hassle. Media HDD - Component to TV, digital coax to amp. Will I need analogue phono stereo ? Am I duplicating any connections unnecessarily ? Would I be better splitting the aerial so each device gets it's own feed ? Am I making the best of the equipment ? This is an important question for me as a friend has just done some experimenting with his set-up and found the picture from his upscaling DVD player was better through analogue component at 720p than through HDMI, stating that HDMI had unnatural colours and harsh edge definition (his words, I haven't yet seen his findings). Open to the floor, and thanks in advance.
