CHeck your TV's settings. Assuming that you are connecting to your home theater through the rear "audio out" jacks. You'll have to go into the tv's audio setup to tell it that you want to use external speakers.

THT-3017HDMI to hook with TV.
Get RCA Cables, red and white from your DSTV straight to your DVD.
The Yellow (Video) Straight from your DSTV to your TV yellow input.
Set your TV to Input 1 or 2 depending on the port you used. PLease but your volume will be only controlled via DVD, if you switch your TV off it will still sound the TV channels via DVD speakers,
What kind of discs r you using? Blu-ray players enforce on the wire encryption called HDCP. I got a call from a customer who was trying to use a cable box and ps3 hooking up to some splitter, then to a single HDMI on the tv. Turns out he was possibly breaking the handshake between the source and the television. Try a non copyrighted video, like a burned copy of a dvd or a home video. and see what happens.
buy a remote audio/video selector. you can plug all your devices in and one output to your home theatre system. it has a remote & selector buttons. it's not expensive & any tv/hi-fi shop should stock it
It works fine if you plug the surround system SCART lead into the AV2 input. I believe this is a 'smart' scart plug (same as SONY but it is not mentioned as in the literature). The AV1 is only good for inputs NOT outputs as well.
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.
