    I`m new to home cinema and was looking for a cheapish home cinema system to go with my newly bought Tevion 32" LCD, Samsung HD850 DVD, Samsung DVDR-100e recorder and Sky+. I bought the Tevion system from Aldi in this weeks special offers because it seemed cheap and I liked the speakers already on stands making it easier to install. After reading this forum I gathered that the best way to connect audio is via optical cables so I was disappointed to find that the Tevion only had 5.1 phono connectors (one set) and an aux connection. Am I expecting too much at this price (£99.99) or is there something available with optical connectors at this price. I didn`t bother taking it out of the box when I saw this and took it straight back.

    Doesn`t matter now. I`ve decided to go for the Yamaha RX-sl80 and nsp-240 speaker package, £200 at Peter Tyson. I think I`ve made a big mistake though, it`s so complicated and the manual makes no sense to me. The sub-woofer just seems to sit there and do nothing. Any help on this would be appreciated.

    have you gone into the amps menu and changed the bass setting to 'sub'. It may be switched to 'off, or none'

    Thanks, sub is on yes maybe I just need to turn it up a bit. Are you using the RX-SL80? if so can you get the menu to display on the TV? All I get is a rolling screen and have to use the display on the amp
