I discovered last night, to my own surprise, that my VCR now outputs correctly to the RCA outputs. Yay! After the hurrican last fall, the VCR just stopped sending out signals. For whatever reasons, it works fine now. I'm good with that. This saves me a $100!!! Now, if it only had SVideo. :P
I can use fiber for the audio on my amp. This sounds great, except for the small fact that fiber cables just love to pop out of their sockets. I think these things need a slight redesign. While trying to get one fiber in, I often knock another fiber out. No fun.
