Nearly there! Already in the house: - Pioneer DV575A player - Denon AVR-2105 receiver - Aegis Evo 3B speakers (5.1) Arriving tomorrow: Infocus screenplay 4805 projector I've connected the speakers to the receiver....that's the easy bit as there's only one way to do it. Reading the manuals it seems there are different ways of doing the connections from the DVD player. This is the way I'm planning to do it: * ignore the optical audio inputs/outputs * ignore the 'stereo' outputs on the DVD player * connect the Surround jacks (6) on the DVD player with the corresponding connections on the receiver * connect the component outputs (3) on the DVD player with the corresponding inputs on the projector .....please can anyone advise if there's a better way of doing it. It occurred to me I could do all the above but also make the optical audio connection between the DVD player and the receiver, allowing me to switch between them for the best audio ....but maybe this is a waste of money. I've been buying Cambridge Audio phono connectors (the middle one, £20 a pair) for no other reason than the fact there's a Richer Sounds nearby....I'll continue to do so, and get their video component cables, unless someone can advise otherwise.....please stop me if I'm about to waste more money! Cable length for the component leads is minimum 3.5 metres so Ill presumably need a 5m set.
