I know this has probably been discussed many times on this board but I will asked the question anyway. I have an HDTV, progressive scan DVD player, and 5 surround speakers. What is the basic connection/hookup to get the HDTV and Progressive scan to play through the speakers to get true 5.1 surround? I am new to this board and new to HDTV as I am getting one at the end of this week. I just want to know what is plugged in to where so when I get this I am not struggling when I get the TV. I would appreciate the help on this. Thanks

Marcus - I'm glad you asked. This thread on How to Hook Up your new HT Receiver will try to address this question.

It's a work-in-progress so give me a day or so to finish. Posted Image

Video: Component out from the DVD to the HD component input on your TV. Audio: Digital Coax or Optical to your receiever/processor for 5.1 decoding.
