    Hi, this is related to an earlier thread - Sony Dav-DZ231 Home Cinema
    I have now taken that piece of junk back to curry's!!!

    My problem is how to connect the items together listed below

    Std Sky Box

    LG 37inch LCD (with freeview Not Used)

    Cyberhome 1600 DVD Recorder/Player

    Goodmans
    GHC304DVDR Home Cinema (((The DVD part of this does not work)))

    I will want to use the Goodmans as a 5.1 Amp and radio tuner

    I need to know how to configure it all bearing in mind I am a Techno Phobe, I really could do with a connectivity Diagram and instructions

    Also are RCA connections called anything else?

    At Xmas I will be getting Sky HD so I am aware most of the above will become redundant.

    Best options please,

    Hope to Hear from you all soon :lease: HELP

    Thanks

    What connections are there on the goodmans?
    personally think you would need a new system to be able to
    get all connected up - especially when you get sky
    lets assume the goodmans only has one aux input?
    sky to tv = scart
    dvd to tv = scart or component if dvd has it
    then a phono cable from tv to goodmans

    sky hd would use the hdmi come xmas

    if the goodmans has an optical/digital coax and the dvd player has the same i would use that for sound from the dvd - but not sure if it does

    a much better idea would be to get something like a yamaha av61 / samsung htas1 / sony's many type of seperate units and use that just for sound
