bedelman; I have 4 sets of audio/video RCA jacks, 1 output, three inputs, labeled, V, L, R, and two sets of audio labeled L and R. They refer to the inputs as 'componet 1, componet 2' and so on... The Cable box has only 1 set of each: audio, L and R, along with composite video and the three connectors for HDTV
I have sucess when I plug the three connections into the TV and the audio into the amplifier directly. It fails if I try to pick up the audio from the HDTV signal (audio) after it passes through the TiVo. I guess this is to be expected, as it is passes through another componet...
The cable company man connected the TV/cable box directly to the TV, bypassing the amplifier switching and of course making the other componets non-accessesable! I no longer had my Xbox, PS2 or Game Cube! Don't think I should have to pay for that!!! Found that I have the CD input free so I use it for audio from the cable box.
I have everything working, but I have to switch to "CD" when I am watching HDTV as I am feeding the signal through the amplifier to get the sound synced. Doesn't sound right when I write it out, but it works! Oh Well!!!
Feedback on my solution is always welcome and accepted, please speak out!.. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated as to what may make a better solution, but it is functional now and you know what they say, "if it works don't f*&k with it"!!!
Thanks for reading this mess and for any thoughts...
