Default Need help with my whole setup.

I'm not sure if this is the right forum but here it goes anyway.

I've had CRTs my whole life and just recently decided to make the switch to the HD television, I'm trying to figure out how to make my sound system work with everything I want hooked up to the TV.

I have an Xbox 360, a Blu-Ray player and a Comcast box for cable television. The problem is my sound system is only capable of using the old red/white RCA cables. So my question is.. is there a way to get everything hooked up to be able to work with the sound sytem? This whole thing is overwhelming for me.

You have some options.

1. You can connect each device to the TV using HDMI for video and to the sound system using stereo cables for audio.
2. Connect everything to the TV and run a single analog stereo connection from the TV to the receiver. It's easy if the TV has an analog audio output. But, that's unlikely these days. If there's just a digital output, get a converter from a place like monoprice.com.
