I am on line

Steve G. :

Great. Good morning.

JACUSTOMER-8llv69uu- :

hi

Steve G. :

So you are looking to replace your Home Theater with another Panasonic model?

JACUSTOMER-8llv69uu- :

Yes basically the blu ray has gone and I want to hook in another Panasonic system which can just slot into existing set up

Steve G. :

Ok. If the ampliifier part of the system is still working, you could just get a standalong BluRay player.

Steve G. :

Let me look at the back of teh BT200 for a sec...

JACUSTOMER-8llv69uu- :

ok

Steve G. :

I'll ause the timer - I have to download something

JACUSTOMER-8llv69uu- :

ok

Steve G. :

Ok, so the existing unit has a pair of digital inputs (for sound). You could get a standalone BluRay player with an optical out, connect that to the existing unit. Then connect the new player to your TV using HDMI if possible

Steve G. :

That would work.

Steve G. :

Make sure though that the new player has an optical output. Some don't.

JACUSTOMER-8llv69uu- :

Panasonic ?

Steve G. :

Doesn't have to be. Whatever meets your budget. Players are relatively cheap nowadays. Pick one at Argos or Currys or online that meets your budget and has that optical output.

Steve G. :

Hold on....

JACUSTOMER-8llv69uu- :

or if upgrading the whole system, what did Panasonic replace it with?

Steve G. :

I did a quick search on Amazon UK and there are several players for under fifty pounds.

Steve G. :

I would probably go to the high st store though and check them out.

JACUSTOMER-8llv69uu- :

ok thanks

Steve G. :

You're welcome.

Steve G. :

If I can help you further, please let me know.

Steve G. :

Cheers.
