Connect your DVD and Satellite TV to your Digital TV and A/V Receiver. 
Hookup Dolby Digital 5.1 surround sound


o Satellite TV signal source IN.
o Digital TV set.
o One RG-6 RF coaxial cable.
o Two sets of RCA Audio cables (1-red & 1-white audio).
o One HDMI cable.
o One Component video cable.
o Two coaxial digital audio cables.
o Digital Satellite converter box.
o One Audio/Video receiver with Dolby Digital 5.1 decoding.

In this example the DVD player will use a component video connection to the TV while surround sound from the DVD-Video is output to the A/V receiver. The satellite TV programs are output to the TV using a HDMI audio/video cable while any Dolby Digital 5.1 shows are sent to the A/V receiver for decoding and amplification so the loudspeakers can give a richer audio presentation.

Another option, if your Audio/Video receiver has HDMI inputs/output, would be to connect the satellite HDMI output to the A/V receiver's HDMI input, but then you would need another HDMI cable to connect the A/V receiver's HDMI output to the HDTV's HDMI input. (HDMI cables do not have to cost you very much. Check www.monoprice.com for very modest costs on HDMI cables and digital audio cables)

What settings do you need for this configuration?
