Thanks for your reply alchav21. I probably wasn't clear in my initial post, I have great video AND audio playing DVDs. Keeping everything exactly the same, when I switch to VHS, I still have great video, but absolutely no audio. Is there something that should change in the wiring when switching from DVD mode to VHS? Have checked and rechecked, thinking I'm missing something but always is the same. Beginning to think there is something amiss with the panny DVD player. Have read how you can update/reprogram the unit. Could that possibly fix something like this? It's just like it doesn't put out any audio when in VHS mode. Even connected it direct to my Bose and get nothing when on VHS. Thanks in advance for any help.
