    I have been reading all the treads on the setup issues for the AV250 and the DV79.

    I have recently purchased the above items and have yet to purchase the cables.

    Please, please could someone tell me (as i am a newbie) the best way forward when connecting these units up - i also have purchased a Hitachi 42PD7200 which i intend to connect via HDMI. I need to know what cables to buy.

    Many thanks in advance.

    HDMI from the DVD player to the screen, digital co-ax or optical from the the DV79 to the ACR250

    Many thanks for your response.

    Q. Will sound go through the AV250 when watching TV as there is no direct link from the TV to the AV250?

    Will be using the TV's tuner?

    If yes, then you'll need to see if there are analogue outs for the sound on the TV which you could connect to the AVR250 via phono leads.

    If you are using Sky or Freeview, you'd need connect the digibox to the AVR200 via phono leads. If you have Sky+, you'd connect the Sky+ box to the AVR via an optical cable.
