I recently bought a Sony bluray 5.1 home theater system. I'm trying to get the 5.1 Dolby sound from my HD digital set up box through this new HTS for the HD channels. How do I go about doing that? My TV only has two normal HDMI ports, no HDMI ARC or Optical ports. Is that still...
How do people rack equipment that also makes it easy to get at to connect up gear. I have seen some nice racks but it looks like a real Pain if you get some new gear and you want to add some jumpers.
I hope when I can get my house built I can get a rack that has access from the front and...
