Oh and Rage, the RCA audio is red and white, the yellow is composite video.

I guess I should have said I would need shipping costs too. This thing is almost as heavy as Oprah after a Golden Corral feast.

not to sh!t on your receiver offer, but can't you find onkyo 508s for like $200 shipped? that would give him 4 hdmi inputs, full 7.1 lossless support and is 3d ready. i'm not sure what dd's intentions are, but for an extra $100 he could at least get a few years out of the receiver if he ever wanted to start a ht setup.

Well if he wants more out of a receiver then of course he should get something else. $100 for my Onkyo is pretty damn cheap.
My HT-R640 is more powerful at 110w per channel compared to the TX-SR508 at 80w per channel. Also if you have a blu ray player that decodes Dolby True HD and DTS HD MA like a lot do nowadays then you don't need the decoding done on the receiver. The 508 does have more HDMI inputs but for less than $20 you could get an HDMI auto sensing switch like here http://www.amazon.com/HDMI-Switcher-...2171397&sr=8-4 which would then give you 4 inputs total. I was using a cheap one from Gamestop for my dvd player and XBOX 360 and it worked fine.
Now the 508 does have 7.1 compared to the 640 having 5.1, I myself don't care about 7.1 and is why when I got my new Yamaha receiver I went with 5.1 again.

Depends on what he wants to do and from what I can tell he isn't interested in some elaborate system.

i completely agree, it didn't seem like he would be. it's a great deal for your receiver if you were to get it locally, however, you add in potential shipping costs and that's where I was coming from.

Yep, what you said.

http://www.amazon.com/Onkyo-TX-SR508.../dp/B003BEDQQW

The 608's are what I am looking at personally to replace my older Onkyo setup (have 7.2 channel and all that but only 1.3 right now) if/when I move to a 3D setup.

A receiver would be your best option but if you don't want to get one then here is another option for you http://www.amazon.com/3-5MM-TOSLINK-.../dp/B00006LVF3

Oh and Rage, the RCA audio is red and white, the yellow is composite video.
Yeah I'm interested. Let me know...

Yea, like I said, this thing could make Oprah almost seem like a Price is Right model when comparing weights.
According to the manual it weighs about 24.5lbs so shipping should be about $25.
