If you have any questions please use this thread. I will try to return to this thread when comments are posted.
I'm not sure I understand your question. My setup is described in the review and depicted several times.
The speakers are active and connected to the Beosound 9000 through masterlink cable (8 poles). The connection from the TV is phono L/R to DIN which plugs in to the Beosound 9000. The Beosound 9000 only has one AUX input so I use a phono-switch to change between the iPod and TV. This is not remote controlled, but as the switch sits next to the iPod dock, it's no hazzle to change by hand when I connect my iPhone.
