    How do I hookup the dish receiver to the denon 3801 (I just picked it up second-hand), and then out to my tv? Basic question, I know, please help!

    I use the optical output from the Dish PVR (Dish 510) to the optical inputs of my receiver. I hook the video output from the PVR directly to the TV. I also use the regular audio output from the PVR ( Left and Right) to the regular audio inputs on the TV so that my wife and kids can watch TV without having to turn on the HT system. My 510 PVR requires that I set up the digital output from the 510 , I set the Dish menu item "Dolby Digital" to Dolby Digital and PCM, that way both audio outputs are sent to the receiver.
