For twenty years, I've had this behind whatever TV we have used in the front room, it's always been a "second set," but I mostly watch it as my wife an I don't always like the same programmes. There's a big TV in the lounge with a Tivo box. It's an auto selector. It didn't matter which remote you picked up, TV, DVD/CD player, VHS recorder, Humax HDR, (later the VHS was discontinued and replaced by a second Virgin Tivo box), whichever one you chose, that's what appeared on the screen. The last TV I was using was a 32" Panasonic Viera. I could also put USB sticks in the side of the TV and I could put the sound through my vintage hi-fi via RCA plugs in the TV, rather than through the optical connection to the the sound bar. I now have a Sony Bravia. 43" 4K. This has 4 HDMI sockets and three USB. But no scart socket or RCA audio sockets. It'll only play memory sticks it's formatted and you can't use them on anything else. Fortunately, I can still use the Humax to play my USB sticks with a few thousand mp3s on them and more videos I have on a separate hard drive. It also has RCA sockets so I can use my hi-fi for the audio if I choose. I've had to buy a scart to HDMI adapter to use my aging DVD/CD player as this only has a scart connection, no HDMI (another naffin' plug in the socket bar under the TV) If I want to put the audio through my hi-fi from the TV other when using the Humax, I'll have to by an optical to RCA converter, (another naffin' plug!). So I don't think I'll bother.
