You'll have to excuse me for being a complete novice when it comes to home theater setup and connections. Computers I know, HT I do not. Heres the problem. I have a new DVD player with Optical outputs as well as S-Video and composite video outs (Sony DVP-NS400D). I want the optimum connection between my receiver and my dvd player. I thought that by going with an optical cable for sound, and the S-Video cable for video, I would get this. Only problem is, when I do this, and turn my TV on, the video isn't playing through. The TV just displays "No signal detected" I have composite hookups to the TV from the reciever. Am I missing a step here? Thank you so much in advance.
