It may be that your cable box is outputting at a resolution your TV doesn't recognise or doesn't support. Do you have any other connection you can use from your cable box to your TV to check the settings?

I hooked up the dvd but I get a picture but no sound

audio cables need to be hooked up as well not just a video cable.
usually red and white and clearly colored on the output side of the dvd player and the tv. input is on the tv output is on the dvd, also if you are using a fiber connection (optical sound) you will need a fiber cable from the dvd to the tv.

I have a 42 inch Insignia plasma tv. I only hook

If you have the audio cables hook up correctly to where the video cable from DVD is connected to, it should be RED and WHITE wires for audio. Then go to on screen audio setup menu to see if the speakers is turn off in the menu. Also try hooking up the powered PC speakers to the AUDIO LINE out RCA jacks to see if you get the sound OK there.

Samsung HDMI issue

Have you try to replace your HDMI cable?I recommend you to pick up a good Monster HD700 HDMI cable from a local retail store like best buy or circuit city.In case it isn't the cable problem,you could return it.
However,when you are a using the HDMI cable,it is normally either have both picture and sound or nothing at all.Are you sure you didn't hook up the audio OUTPUT from your TV back to a receiver input?
Or even an optical output from the TV to the receiver?
