Home Entertainment cabling.. and hot chick links
 
Since I just devirginized my title box on accident with my first *, I figured I'd try the double play of posting a new topic, and many hot girls in an attempt to apologize.

I recently got a Tivo with my rewards points, and am having a heck of a time trying to figure out how to set up everything to one system. Right now I have all of the following that I want to go into the same television:

XBox
Playstation II
VCR
DVD
Cable Box
Tivo

I have three inputs on my tv, one coax, the other two standard video, so the old layout was:

Xbox -> TV Input 1
DVD -> TV Input 2
Cable Box AND Playstation II -> VCR -> TV Input three

I got no dukes on how to fit the Tivo into this plan. What's everyone elses's set up like? If you have suggestions for mine, good times, but in general, I'm just curious what other people have and how their cable jumble is set up.

Oh, and now for some hot women... I love WBW... I hate that they won't let me direct link, or more specifically I am too dumb to figure it out.... Links are probably NSFW

If you use Coax you can do it this way:
Cable box --> TiVo --> VCR --> TV
Nothing really should change from how you had it before. The TiVo always goes after the cable box, take the output of the Tivo to the VCR, then in to the TVs Coax. Done.

The best thing you could do is buy a cheap Surround Sound Receiver, this would simplify everything. You would use it like a video switcher. Everything plugs in to the receiver, one out put goes to the TV and the sound comes out the speakers. It will sound and look 1000% better because you are not chaining 25 things in a row causing signal loss.

If you need more info let me know, this is what I do for a living.

acme401: I am an entertainment center doofus. How much will a "cheap Surround Sound Receiver" run me? I think right now my connection is coax from vcr to tv, but standard video from cable box to vcr. I need to look at it when I get home..


cassette: I just tested them again and they worked for me. Blockage?

The links go to a page that says "No External Linking!"

I wonder if it's because I am currently logged in to the site. GG Cookies.

Well, that's not acceptable. I must go fix this asap.
