Connecting my receiver to TV

Hello. I want to connect my satellite receiver to my new Sony 40" W550 Bravia

I attached pictures of the back of my receiver and my TV's plugs

Whats the best way to connect? can i do it over VGA? if i can how will i connect audio (will the single plug next to vga give me quality sound on my tv?)
Or can i do it scart out/component in? does it make sense?

and what is that black plug next to the composite plugs on the receiver?

One more question! should i connect my laptop mini dvi/VGA? or mini dvi/ HDMI?

Thank you! i really appreciate the help!

You can't use VGA because your satellite box doesn't produce a VGA output (no sat receivers support VGA).
SCART outputs can supply composite video (CVBS), RGB, audio L/R out and S-Video but you need to check which of the 2 SCARTs suports which modes.
The black RCA socket marked 0/12V can produce 12 volts DC to power an external device or acccessory.
Your laptop PC could be connected via either DVI or VGA; either should work. If you have a spare lead of the type just try it.
The tricky question is how to connect your satellite box because there doesn't appear to be an RGB input on the TV - which surprises me. The normal connection would be SCART to SCART using RGB but I see no SCART socket on the TV.
Is this a non European TV model ?
