Are you using your TV for both Audio and video? Sounds like you are only wanting HD video and SS audio. If, so only send HD video signal to TV and keep SS Audio direct to speakers from SS receiver/ amp.

We are trying to hook up a samsung flat screen TV, a sony home theater system, direct tv box, and a panasonic DVD to the dynex component video converter box. Which cable goes where

We can't make assumptions. Did you set it up in accordance with the manuals?

Without specific details...

In general, ins go to outs; compatible connectors need no modification.

If you have an HDTV and HD Satellite I don't think you want to be tying the video quality down to S-Video.

There are two signals to consider here. Video and Audio. TV's are expert at Video and A/V Receivers are expert at Audio, so each should get first crack at the specialty for which it is designed.

HDMI or Component Video (Red, Green and Blue RCA cables) are the best and ONLY ways you'll get Hi Def to the TV. If you route EACH HIGH DEF SOURCE'S VIDEO DIRECTLY to the TV (instead of through the receiver or a switch) the TV/monitor will receive the best video digital data.

Digital Audio from as close to the real source as possible (SAT Box, maybe) to the receiver.

Standard analog audio from the SAT box to the TV for watching lo-fi content like news and weather without the Sony HTS turned on.

How to connect new HD cable box to receiver

You are using a new HD Cable box, that are using componet video cables for HD, Unfortunetly this receiver does not have componet inputs, so you will just have to run the audio from the televison directly to the receiver by connecting the video out and audio out from the television to the receiver's video Input one. This will require a normal RCA composite cables yellow,red,white. Connect one end of each of the cables to televisions output terminals, and the other to the input one on the receiver. Note: Your TV might have a seperate term called Monitor out, Connect the yellow here, and the red and white to audio out. You can do the same for the DVD but you have to use the same cables,Also the television will not display HD picture this way as this is not a HDTV Receiver. If you just want TV sound to the receiver then do not use the video(Yellow) cable just use the audio out terminals from the tv and connect to Input one on the receiver. you can do this with the cable box also but you have to use RCA type cables . If you want the full HD experience then a new up todate receiver is necessary.

Best way to connect new system

After trying several ways, we decided the best picture was to run the blue ray (out) directly to the TV (in) with an HDMI and another HDMI from the sat. box(out) to TV(in), then optical audio from TV (out) to receiver (in). This way you don't have to change channels on the reciever when switching from TV to DVD. Remember that HDMI is one cable that supports audio and video. If you are using all Samsung products and want to use one remote, using the Anynet feature, I think it has to be connected with an HDMI. I'm going to try connecting an HDMI too from the reciever to the TV to see if this feature will work. It does with the Blue Ray.

Direct tv hdbox & Plasma TV & DVD SSound system & DVD recorder

Need to make sure you have the red,white,and yellow rca connection cables ran from the samsung dvd player to the red,white,yellow input on the back of the dvd recorder. Once you do that make sure you put your dvd recorder on line 1 input. If you look closely on the back of your recorder it should say line 1 input. If your recorder isn't on that input you can put the recorder on line 1 input by using dvd recorder remote and pushing the input button. Make sure you don't push the tv input button the dvd recorder remote there should be a seperate input button or a way to toggle the inputs on the recorder. Once you verify all that turn on your tv and go to the input on your tv that you watch the dvd recorder on and you should see what your recording on the tv.

Cant get sound from speakers

That is because you didn't have the audio input connection right.
1. HDMI cable going from the Samsung tx72 output to Your Samsung TV HDMI input 2.
2. Non HD directv box Left and right audio output should be connected directly to the Samsung DVD receiver under Satellite input.Select"Satellite"for the sound from your Samsung tx72.You are good to go!

Dvd connection

Yes! You can pass the video signal through the receiver. This is most useful when you have more than one video device (e.g. DVD, cable box, VCR,...), and you can use the receiver to switch to the audio and video for the selected source at the same time.

On the back of your Onkyo HT-SR800 there is a section labeled "Component Video." It has three inputs and one output. So, attach your DVD by component cables to the "DVD In" and then attach component cables from the "OUT" receiver connection to the TV.

If your TV doesn't have a component connection, then this addresses your other question. You can't gain anything with this, because your TV doesn't support it. Connect the DVD to the TV according to the highest quality connection that they both support, in this order: composite, S-Video, component.

If you are using composite, but they both handle composite, than yes, you will get a better picture by going to component (or even S-Video). If both devices support progressive scan, this could be a substantial difference.

Your receiver accepts component, s-video and component video, but keep in mind, it may not do "video switching." So if you connect the DVD in via component, but go out to the TV over composite, then you may not get any video at all (but feel free to try). Try to avoid this, but you may be forced to try depending on the limitations of the various devices that you are hooking up.
