Thanks for you input. I do have an additional question…... about the need of CT-17 level converter as noted in
the owners manual, but I think Mike will answer it when he replies. This, to me, is the last piece of the puzzle
(and my confusion). Is the ‘Y' adaptor cable to be used ‘in conjunction’ with the CI-V level converter or…..’in place
of ' the CI-V level converter?
Again, I’m really impressed with the helpful responses I’ve received from this group, thank you.
I feel like I’m almost there ;0)
ps; from the looks of the archives, you have been involved in helping others for a long time !!
