    Hello, I will be getting my mitsu 55511 and toshiba sd4800 dvd player soon, since I know almost nothing about component hookup, I have a question. I have been told to hook the player up straight to the tv and not go thru the receiver but I want my sound to come thru my 5 speakers and sub and not thru the tv speakers. my receiver does not have a component hookup. how can I still get sound from my 5 speakers. thanks

    Kamal, the hookup between your DVD player and TV will be strictly video (not audio). You will get a component cable (3 RCA cables R, G and B) to do this connection to your TV. The audio hookup will be between the DVD player and your receiver using either a digital coaxial connector (looks like a single RCA cable) or with a digital optical cable (fiber optic).

    Use the component video connections from your DVD player to your TV. If possible, use a digital audio connection from your DVD player to your receiver. Depending on your receiver you may be able to use a coaxial cable or an optical cable. For multi channel DVD-Audio playback you will need to connect the DVD player's 6-channel audio output to a receiver that has a set of multi-channel input jacks.

    Kamal, what kind of receiver do you have? It is capable of decoding standard Dolby Digital and/or DTS 5.1 isn't it?
