Re: DVD player doesn't play VCDs, but solved!
- First, Happy New Year to everyone!
Thanks for the congrats.
Turntable?!?! What's that? ... only kidding :-)
Regarding cable connections: yes, having everything in one unit
definitly makes cabling simpler. But I connected a VCR and digital
cable box. And I have multiple video/audio paths so that I can route
DVD directly to the TV, or through the VCR. And the digital cable
audio can go directly to the TV, or to the DVD receiver. What a mass
of wires. The connections were easy, but getting everything routed
through the back of the entertainment center wasn't. What a pain!
Good luck to you on your system.
