Hi - I'm reworking my A/V system and integrating a new MythTV box at the
same time. I'm trying to visualize what connections need to be made,
etc., for this to work, so I drew a powerpoint diagram -
The Myth box will be a combination front/backend with two PVR-250's.
1) I'm not certain I should be routing audio and video from the Myth box
back to the receiver, instead of straight to the TV. But it seems like
then I wouldn't get audio via the receiver unless I route it back from
the TV to the receiver (yes, I'm confused :-) ).
2) On the PVR-250, how do you input audio to the card? Looking at the
image (http://images10.newegg.com/productimage/15-116-602-05.JPG) I
think all I see is a 1/4" stereo jack. In that case I guess I'll need a
conversion cable (RCA audio male -> 1/4" male plug) to go from my
receiver to the card?
3) My Aopen GX440 card has DVI output. Any sense trying to do DVI ->
component (is there such a cable?) so that I can then output component
video from the receiver to the TV? Or should I just stick to S-video?
THANK YOU for any comments - I'm sure I'm missing something here.
