Re: How to hook up your receiver properly

Ok, first lets hook up the VHS/DVD player unit.
On the back of the combo unit you should have a video (yellow) and audio (red, white) out (it should be labelled DVD/VCR out). That goes to the receiver video input. Your cable box should also go into the Receiver if there is room but if not run to the TV.

Home theater:
Onkyo 805, Yamaha YDP2006EQ, Samson Servo 600 amp
3 EV Sentry 500 monitors across the front, 4 Mission 762i's Surrounds, SVS PB13U sub, Panasonic BDT220, Harmony 1100, Nintendo WiiU
Panasonic PT-AE8000 on a 120" 2,35:1 fixed screen

Living room system:
Sherwood/Newcastle R972, Mission 765's, SVS SBS02's, A/D/S MS3u sub, Yamaha YDG2030EQ
Yamaha KX-393 Tape deck, CDC 805 CD changer, Panasonic BD60, Sony turntable PS-T20
Panasonic TC-P50ST60, HD-PVR & WDTV Live, Harmony 900

That depends on the type of speakers your using? If you let us know we can go from there. Does your receiver not have auto room EQ?

Re: How to hook up your receiver properly

Ok, have you run Audyssey yet using the supplied mic? make sure you use a small tripod and place the mic at ear level right where your head would be on the seat.

Re: How to hook up your receiver properly

In a perfect world, I would like to have my sofa in the center of a 7.1 surround setup. Due to space restraints, the rear speakers can be spread out away from each other, but can only be a foot or two from the back of the sofa. Is this big deal?

Not at all - in most HT rooms, the 2nd row of seating is just a couple feet from the rear wall. The issues begin when the sofa is right on the back wall.
