Well got myself a nice little Denon HT setup. Just have no idea where to connect the RCA's etc I want if possible to have sound during Regular TV and Movies. In pictures below very top box is my cable box. Below that is DVD player and last one is main reciever. and other picture is back of my TV. If someone coule please help me maybe make a diagram of where each RCA goes I would appreciate it. could possible send you 5$ if you can maybe draw on my pictures below and show me where to plug each etc. Would appreciate any help thanks.

Top RCA on cable box.....looks black. That goes to the orange one marked coax1 on the denon :fyi:

That'll give you surround for cable tv.

optical from TV to receiver for sound since you only have one optical IN on your reciever.
component IN from DVD to Receiver for video
component OUT from Reciever to TV for video

leave your RF (cable) from the cable box plugged into the TV from the cable box. then run the optical OUT from the TV to the receiver. this will give the best digital sound out of anything you plug INTO your tv.
dvd to TV (component hookup for video) for digital audio use the black plug labeled (COAX) out to the orange COAX IN on the receiver. Or just run red/white rcas from the dvd along with the component video to the tv and run the single optical audio out from the tv to the receiver.

If you are going to use the digital inputs(which is a good idea), make sure you use a digital coax cable and not just a regular rca cable.

I'd go...


Cable Box
DIGITAL AUDIO OUT

To

Receiver
COAX-1 or COAX-2

------------------------------------------------

DVD Player

OPTICAL AUDIO OUT

To

Receiver

OPTICAL

And then use the corresponding button on the receiver/remote to use those inputs.

cable box:
svideo out to tv
digital out to receiver

dvd player:
component out to tv
digital out to receiver

unless you want to use your receiver for video switching which isnt really necessary
