Question about Samsung Televison & Video
SOURCE: hdmi receiver to hd plasma tv
1) I believe the "3 prong" you mean the RCA A/V cable. This cable is color coded red/white/Yellow (Right Audio/Left Audio/Video). This cable is OK for regular TV but when it come to HD, the quality of the picture fall short.
But you also could mean the 3 wires component cable that color coded Green/Blue/Red. If you plug only this without the Red/White for the speaker then you will only see the picture. This component cable help make the pic a lot clearer. But I believe not as good as DVI and HDMI. More info here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_display_interfaces
2) Most universal remote control come with a preset of keys to emulate other remotes. You need to search for the owner manual to figure out how and what code to put to use with a certain device.
Most new Universal remotes has a learning mode too that the user can "teach" the remote to emulate that "IR signal".
Now for the "HOW". It's a little complicated. But here is my 2cents. Most basic remotes has a light in front and this light is Infra Red light. So you don't see the light but it blinks. The blinking is the data of 1 and 0 that computer uses. Most of the time the remote is in sleep mode which uses very little power. One press of the button, it switch on the remote and carry out the performance of that button. The brain of the remote figure out which button was pressed and search in it's memory for the blinking pattern and blinks the light with that pattern and then fall back to sleep.
For the pattern itself, it contain informations. It usually start with the ID of the device that suppose to receive the signal. Follow is the "flag" and then the information of the button that was pressed. Then the final signal is basically say "End" to indicate that the message end. All device within range will get this information but if the ID don't belong to it, it will ignore the entire message.
Hope what I said helped. :D

SOURCE: How do I hook up
If I may add to the postings of Ekse and TampaNative......
Depending on what available cables and connectors that you may have the basic idea is from the cable company in to your Motorola receiver then to your Samsung HT-X50 then to the Sony Wega as below image shows. All other additional devices such as another DVD player or an iPod Nano with Video Dock or anything else would have to be connected to the Samsung.
All external devices would have to be plug in the the different INPUTs as you may decide which is to which. What is important to remember is that everything goes through the Samsung be it incoming or outputs.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards.
Thank you for using FixYa.

as far as it turning off on its own I would get a fan on it and see if that make a difference make sure that the fan is able to flow around the tv especially through the back of it, if this stops it from turning off then it is an overheating problem

Had this happen on a Comcast box (Motorola DCT 6416 III)
Here's how to fix it:
Turn the cable box off, leave fully connected. Press Menu on the remote
The cable box internal menu will display (Not the Comcast one the Motorola one-- i.e. Display ratios-16:9 etc It's in black and white)
Use the arrows to cursor to the Closed Captioning and toggle to "Disabled" Press Manu again to exit and Voila!
Power the box on an have at it

Make sure the TV is set to output audio to the digital optical port. Then make sure you have selected the proper output mode on the home theatre. Unplug the optical cable from the back of the home theatre and see if the red laser is on (don't shine it in your eyes! :))
