The top two RCA jacks are TV audio out and go to the AV2 input on the back of the ZX700.

The video output from the Concertone goes to the COMPOSITE input on the TV. The single yellow RCA plug at the bottom. Plugging this yellow RCA plug into ANY other connector on the TV (like the yellow plug on your component input (where the XBox Big green 5 wire cord is plugged in as shown in the photo) will cause all kinds of screwed up video.

There is no audio out for the Concertone because it is designed to play all audio out to the campers speakers not the TV's speakers. In fact you should mute the TV while playing DVDs through the Concertone.

I use a stand alone up-converting DVD player direct to the HDMI input on the TV to take advantage of the High Def DVD signal. The audio out on the TV then goes to the Concertone through the upper RCA plugs like the XBox and Tuner TV for Surround Sound Conversion.

Do the recent Concertone models have optical audio input? The new TVs now have optical output. That would by far be the best set up if it's available.

Ahh, there is an interesting story on how the TVs only came with optical outputs, but that is for another time over a beer - maybe.

The current and past Concertone(s) DO NOT come with optical inputs, but they will be shipping with these soon. Additionally, Concertone wiill be suppling and opti-box to convert and supply audio input to current system.

Each of these will be available later in the 4th quarter.

Where did you find the one for the ZX700? I have never had my unit off the wall and someone posted that wiring diagram on another forum supposedly of our zx700.
Lou
The good news is all units have the appropriate wiring diagram ON THEM so you don't even need a separate piece of paper - it is right where you will be checking the connections.

If that works for you, fine.

Bob,now I'm curious. How about taking a rain check on some Boston Lager and tell us about the optical on the TV output. At home we have the optical on our Samsung Plasma TV plugged into the Yamaha amp. Now any HDMI or RCA sound jacks plugged into the TV are played through the surround mode and we get a great sound.

Our SV264 has a 4 year old Concertone. I have the RCA jacks plugged into the DTV box and play the TV sound thru the AUX output (I mute the TV since the sound is not in sync when both the TV and Concertone play simultaneously). I switch the RCA jacks to the DVD player when watching a movie. However, the best setup would be optical sound to the Concertone. That way any HDMI plugged into the TV (DVD, computer etc) would have optical sound the same as at home. I'm surprised that Concertone is just now coming out with optical. Give us more info if you can.

Bob I would love to know the full story of the optical outputs. I will also be a customer of the converter box when it is ready, so give us a "head's up"

If you would like a "Beta Tester" drop me a line.
