Greetings all, I am new to the home theater scene so bare with me. I recently bought an Onkyo 7.1 system and I want to make sure I'm doing things right. Everything is working right now except the rears (there not hooked up yet),so I just want to verify a few things. I have component video cables going from my DVD player to my TV for best possible picture. I have S-video from by satellite box to TV(best hook up available from my satellite box)and digital coax. from DVD to receiver for sound. Question is, do I need component cable going to the receiver as well as an S -video to the receiver as well. The receiver has all available hookups but I thought the main job of the receiver is sound output not video??? The reason I'm asking is my instruction manual says some where along the lines as "whatever runs to the receiver needs to run to the TV as well"?? Thanks for any help. Also any thoughts or opinions on Onkyo?
