Question about Pioneer XVDV830/SDV830 DVD AUDIO HTP System
I can't find a picture of it/them but in general you want to get the BEST audio to your hifi electronics and let stereo-only TV-related audio go TO the TV itself.
FACT: TV speakers are there as a convenience. If they were comparable to hifi electronics and speakers we wouldn't by anything but a TV, right?
CORRELARY: TV is not itself an audio source. Everything it displays and projects soundwise comes from somewhere else at a higher 'fi' than it can reproduce.
So, get your BEST satellite or cable box digital audio out through either coaxial or optical cables to the Pioneer, if it has compatible inputs. This way you can decode multichannel audio broadcasts in electronics designedf for it.
There will also be a stereo pair of RCA jacks at the Sat/Cable boxes that you can run to the TV if it has multiple analog audio inputs. That way you can watch and hear CNN or the Weather on the TV without cranking up the Pioneer.
If you MUST have a TV audio feed to the Pioneer, use its RCA analog audio out to any available input. The TV may have internals controls for volume at those jacks. I recommend choosing a FIXED output level so you can turn the TV speakers down or off and still listen through the Pioneer. But it will be in vanilla stereo only.
