How far can you run RCA cables?
I read on this site that you only get stereo sound on a X22 if you use the RCA connections instead of the CH3/4 Coax. Since I was planning to locate the receiver in a closet out of site, this presents a problem. One solution may be to fish a long set of RCA cables above the ceiling to the TV set. My question - this would probably take about 20 feet of cable. Would this be too long? Would I experience significant attenuation at this length?

I currently have a 50 foot long s-video cable with RCA connection for sound running from 811 through an unpowered switch box and there doesn't appear to be any degradation in sound or picture.

The TV2 RF coax output on those receivers is in stereo however. Depending on your setup and usage, you might consider that in your plans.

Are you sure about that? Seems like the manual that I have for a 322 says that the TV2 A/V outputs are for stereo, and the coax is in mono. Guess I'll have to look at it again when I get home.

I just know my 522 is, and is documented that way. I had read on here before that the 322 used the same UHF modulator with MTS output. But I never had actually verified in the 322 manual or anything, so I guess take my more generalized statement above with a grain of salt.
