I have read so many different ways to connect everything to a receiver and heard so many different opinions. My Philips 30" widescreen can accept all the video inputs I am needing. Shouldn't all the audio inputs go to the receiver and all the video inputs go to the TV? I have a yamaha HTR-5660. Can somebody explain where to connect the cables? The Yamaha has 1 digital coax audio input which I plan to connect my digital cable box which only has analog and digital audio outputs. I want to connect my progressive scan DVD player directly to TV using component video cable and optical audio out from DVD player to receiver. I am so confused...please help.If it helps here is what I am wanting to connect...Philips 30" widescreen 30PW850H, Toshiba DVD/VCR combo which has digital and optical audio outputs, component video output, Yamaha HTR-5660 receiver, digital cable box which just has standard red, white, yellow rca jacks and a digital audio output. I am using a 3.1 setup which I plan to use for a while.I have all the cables needed(monster..I know). I just need to know how to connect from the components. This is my first post and would respect all responces. Thanks in advance.
