Connecting HD home theater
What is the best way to connect an HDTV, DirectTV HD, surround speakers, Yamaha HTR 5860 Receiver, DVD/VCR component, CD player, Wii.
Right now there is HD optical cable form DirTV receiver to TV and RCA cables for audio between DirTV receiver and TV. Nothing else is currently connected.
I want to connect everything through the Yamaha receiver, but think I need to keep HD optical from DirTV directly to TV? Can everything else run through the Yamaha receiver? Where should I use RCA cables, SVideo cables, or other? I use to know the basics when everything was RCA cables..
