    Here is the control center on my z680's:

    (sorry, I can't post a quick link until I have 15 posts)

    I already know how to hook up my DVD player and my PS2 (I just use the optical cable's to get 5.1 sound) but I am not sure how to hook up my TV or my satellite receiver.

    Both my TV and my receiver only have the red and white audio outputs. Neither have optical or coax outputs. Are there some kind of converters or cables I can buy in order to hook up my TV to my z680's? Can is still get 5.1 surround sound if there are cables?

    Those inputs are for a DVD player with a built-in Dolby Digital decoder and analog outputs. So you will not be able to use them with your TV or sat receiver and get surround sound. If you get an 1/8” headphone-to-RCA adapter you could get two-channel sound, however.
