Treaty Violation

[ #15467 ]

I have violated the AV Non-proliferation treaty. Tonight I attempted to reconnect my VCR into my media setup, and discovered I did not have the appropriate cable. It was being used! I dug and I dug, but I could only find two RCA cables, instead of the three I needed for stereo.

I think that's my punishment. Although really, a VCR, ReplayTV, Cable Box, and DVD player is not excessive. (And I'll admit I don't have enough inputs for everything.) On the down side, they are generating a lot of heat. I think I need to get a few silent fans to move the air around.

What I really need is a proper AV router. Maybe I should have gotten the more expensive receiver, but it would have been much more audio electronics than I needed.

I'll just have to pay the price and order some more cables.

  • I can mail you some cables. I have enough red/yellow/white RCA cable sets to open my own Radio Shack.


  • Is this [] excessive? DirecTiVo, tape deck, VCR, DVD player, AV receiver, laptop (MP3 player), and PS2 (can't see it, next to receiver, but you can see the 2.4GHz wireless controllers for it). From here [] it probably doesn't appear excessive (note absence of all cables, except for speaker wire). The subwoofer is behind the TV, the surround speakers are not visible in that picture.

    Also not visible in the closet is the hub and AirPort Extreme base station to connect laptop and PS2 to the network, and the 900MHz
