Connect you blue ray player direct to the TV via HDMI - for hi def video i.e. 1080p (component will, at best, give you you 1080i).

For audio:

Connect both the TV and player to the Yamaha amplifier. Here you're going to have choices: the better connection for the player is via a digital link (say optical); the TV could also be connected via a digital link (if the amplifier has at least two inputs) or via analogue outputs - usually red and white.

Note: for high resolution audio off the blue ray player you'll need to change your amplifier.

Basically I would recommend the same as the above

1. Plug Bluray to TV by HDMI
2. Use Toslink from Bluray to Receiver (1m lengths available from poundland)
3. Go to the bluray menu and prioritise the audio to digital

I have sony bdp-s360 and this is the setup I use

iis there is any difference in sound quality between hd sound and normal Dolby digital 5.1/dts 5.1??or is the compression rate of hd sound format less compressed.

Dolby digital 5.1 and DTS 5.1 both use lossy compression i.e they discard most audio data in order to pack the six channels into a lower bandwidth.

HD sound does not use lossy compression - it is full bandwidth audio.

On my system HD audio sounds considerably better than DD or DTS.
