I found out today that the audio jacks on the TV are inputs and I don't see a headset jack. It looks like the only way to get audio out is via optical. I know some of the sound bars have that input. I'm glad I checked this out, because I thought of adding an amp I have and two 6" speakers to the new cabinet (also not built), but now I know that won't work. So the cabinet will be to hide the wiring and adapters and add more storage. I will probably make that tomorrow, if all goes well.
I also got my SlideOut Kover and the JL Audio 6x9s via UPS today.
My HDMI port on the receiver which hasn't worked, or so I thought worked like a champ today. I don't have the HDMI / Cat5e adapter yet, so I just hooked it up to test.
All I accomplished today was to change the slip in thingy so the new head unit will work; mounted a piece of 1/2" plywood (to mount the amps on); mounted the Memphis SRX4.300 amp (I can't believe how heavy it is... looks like a quality piece); terminated the three Cat5e cables on male plugs (568B); Put on a few more Phlip-It latches; took some pictures and cleaned up some.
I need to get in touch with the forum techie. I took pictures on my Sony camera; transferred to the better PC and still it fails to upload file. Not being about to post pictures is frustrating. I have to be careful what I say, the language police are there making sure we stay politically correct and don't offend anyone. Especially if the butt of your joke is a quarterback god. Can I say "butt"? It is an idiom... a figure of speech
