    Hi there I'm jamie from Blackburn Lancashire in the UK and I have just got a second hand onkyo tx sr 606 avr receiver and it does not have any microphone with it so I have seen some of the new ones used for the new onkyo avr receivers and I am wondering if they can work with the same model as I have got?

    you can hook every video source directly to your TV and audio to the receiver at the same time.

    its best to use the reciever because thats one of the points of having the reciever. one reason is quality what wire are the audio out on the tv rcas? hdmi are best run all your components to the reciever also for less chance of distortion. 2 if your wall mounting you tv you have 2 wires vrs. all the component wires. there are many reasons why

    there are audio out ports on TV's so you can plug them all in to your TV and not use the TV speakers audio out to the receiver

    thx man, why do poeple use an external amplifier? Because the receiver not always have an amp build in? Or just because they want more speakers or more powerfull speakers?

    I don't have an AV receiver, but I do have a DVD stereo system. I have connected my Nintendo 64 to the TV via the standard AV cables, I then have a line lead going from the AV outputs on the back of the TV, to the AUX input on the back of the stereo system, that's one way to get around using an AV receiver if you don't want one. It also means I can play games with headphones if I want to, as my TV set doesn't have a headphone output.
