    I am going to buy all of my equipment in a few days and I have some questions about cabling.

    My receiver is going to be a Yamaha HTR-5560 that has 5A/V inputs with S-Video and 2 with component video. It also has 4 optical and 1 coaxial digital inputs.

    My DVD player will be a Philips DVD793CH with Composite, S-Video and Component outputs. It also has an Optical and a Coaxial digital output.

    My TV will be a Sony WEGA KV-32FS100 that has 1 S-Video, and 1 Component Video input. There are also 3 A/V inputs.

    I also have an RCA Directv receiver that has the standard cable input and output and also has an A/V output with S-Video.

    The last component I have is a standard VCR that has an A/V input and output, along with standard coax input/output.

    How should I wire this setup? I want the best possible picture and sound that I can get.

    I figure I'll use component video and optical digital sound from the DVD player to the Receiver. I'll have to use S-Video and stereo A/V from the Directv to the Receiver. The VCR to the Receiver will have to be Composite video and A/V cables. How do I hook up my Receiver to my TV? Do I need to use component, s-video and composite cables or can I just use the component?

    Thanks,
    Kevin
