Hey, Im currently wiring up my New Sound system. Anyway i went to plug the RCA wires into the H/U (its a cheapo DVD player) and there isnt any RCA input plugs unlike most H/U i see. What do i do from here? Do i have to use a different H/U that already has the plugs? cheers

well if it don't have inputs, and you want/need them yourr going to have to get one that does!
alternatively you could open it up, see if it has the potential to have inputs, maybe the wwiring and plgs just arn't there, but it's all set up on the circuit board and you can solder some on, prolly not but...

you can get a line level convertor - drops the signal from the speaker outs down to a useable rca output. about $30 from strathfield

Im sure theres a way to get the DVD unit goin...cause other wise when ya run the units together your still gonna need to connect the DVD unit to your source head unit otherwise yes great you'll have DVD picture but no sound :P
