I have a Plasma TV (HP-4254) and DVD converter (DVD-1080P7) both products made by Samsung. I am looking for a receiver without a DVD player (so I can hook up my converter) and a couple of speakers made by Samsung for my TV.
Thanks for the recommendation.

Re: Receiver & Speakers for Plasma TV
It really depends on how much you want to spend. A home theater set=up will probably be a bit hard to get without a DVD player. Let me know your budget, and I will see what i can come up with. Do you have to stick with Samsung by the way?

There can be several causes for this, few of which you can do anything about. However, a few things to try:
1) Replace the batteries on your remote control. 2) Try resetting the logic functions on yourtv by unplugging it for a minute, then plugging it back in. 3) Try covering up the infra-red receptor on the front of your TV to see if you're getting unwanted signals from the receptor. taping a piece of foil over that area is perfect. If it doesn't stop after doing these two things you'll probably need to take it to a shop. 4) If this does stop it, then look for unexpected signal sources. Have you added a remote control extender? Added a new device to your audio-videosystem? Changed to a new remote?
Make sure you have the tv volume turned right down as this will cause an echo,also set amp to prologic 2, and set up xover to suit your speakers or go for the THX standard of 80 hrtz and as a rule of thumb set front L,C,R speakers to zero rears to about +4or5 and your sub to -5[ dont know which speakers you have but try setting the subs on board volume to the 10,o,cloak position],also make sure the speakers -,+ are wired the same at the amp and speakers.
Plug the TV to an open channel on your receiver via this output: *Rear, 1 x Digital audio output (coaxial) ( TOSLINK ) This will look like a single RCA output plug. Set that input channel on your receiver to some sort of virtual surround mode because it doesn't look like your HDTV has a decoder in it (meaning it will come out stereo and the receiver will have to fake it). Turn the volume all the way down on the TV and use the receiver to control TV volume just as you do with DVDs.
*Substitute this with the digital audio output on your set top box if you are sending video only to the TV from the set top box (component, DVI or s-video connections). So video goes to the TV, audio to the receiver.
