Such questions seem dumb to people that frequent this forum, since most of us live and breathe hi-fi and/or home cinema. However, those with limited knowledge of audio and video equipment may feel justifiably confounded by interconnections.
For instance, an inexperienced user may appreciate that a particular cable fits a certain socket, but in an age of analogue and digital connections, they may be concerned about damaging equipment. Such concerns would be unfounded, but if you're unsure, it's better to check.
I'm almost certainly one of the nation's worst cooks. If I posted questions on a cookery forum, my enquiries would doubtless seem stupid to experienced members, though from my perspective those questions would seen entirely valid.
Sorry, not being difficult, but you could be scaring new posters away! Then they'll try to force an Ethernet cable into an HDMI socket...
Like, 'do I turn the tin opener clockwise or anticlockwise?'
HiFi / A/V / Bedroom
I'm more accustomed to peeling back the plastic film on microwave meal packaging. Tinned food is taking things up a level.
To be fair, I'm not that incompetent, but whenever I threaten to cook others quickly jump in and take charge. Some have even tried to teach me.

I find those peely plastic things tricky, keep coming off in shreds, could do with some lessons.
Anyway, now you've quit smoking you're going to be eating a lot more so now's the time to learn to cook.
I learnt that from my father.
For that system to work, you can't just mess up once; you have to repeatedly sink to unfathomable levels of incompetence.
The taste buds are slowly coming back to life. Perhaps that was part of the problem.

A very good idea, and I've done this before to answer questions (I even downloaded the MCR603 user-manual to check someone's query on bi-amping!), but the snag is...if you have to log-on to a HiFi forum to ask such a basic question, that's probably not a solution you will think of...
