    I've put a DVD player with the 2nd TV and thought about using it for playing CDs thru the TV also. However, when the DVD is playing a CD the screen always shows the manufacture's logo. Is there anyway simple (and cheap!) way round this.
    The DVD player is a Cambridge Audio DVD55.

    Cheapest and simplest way is to turn the TV brightness to zero.

    Almost to obvious, but some DVD players have the ability to turn the `video display' off.

    A button on the front panel of my Pioneer performs this task.

    Thought about turning down the brightness but I'd to turn down other settings as well and it'd be a pain to reset each time.

    DVD doesn't have a simple 'turn off screen option'.

    Been reading thru some of the other forums and maybe a cheap active sub and sats maybe the way to go.

    Any recommendations for under £200?

    I too have a Pioneer DVD player with a button on the front to turn off or turn down the display, but it's the DVD player's display, not the TV's - I'm not sure that any DVD player gives you the opportunity to turn down/off the TV display.
