I am a relative newbie to home cinema and have a question that might make some of you chuckle as it could appear a little stupid? If component video cables don't carry sound signals, why should I connect my DVD player to my Receiver using them (unless I am reading my manuals incorrectly).... Just purchased a new Yamaha receiver and DVD player to hook up to my LCD. I was going to connect the DVD player to the TV using component cables, and for the life of me cannot understand why I should be doing the same from the DVD to the Reciever! Could somebody please enlighten me I have studied the manuals as much as I can, and am still at a loss as to how to connect everything up. Just have a DVD player, (not recorder), 5.1 surround receiver and want to hook the two together for best picture and sound quality. TV is iDTV so no set top or sky box to connect. Want to use component from DVD to TV as both feature progressive scan. Could somebody please explain in plain English, 'cos as you have most probably worked out, I am a Numpt!!
