I simply don't understand how to hook up the DVD player to the cable box. The lingo is beyond my simple mind. I have a lot of red and white connections and only one yellow connection on the DVD player. Which red an white connections do I use?
Is your advise free?
Re: I simply don't understand how to hook up the DVD
OK simple mind maybe this will help. Cable bos to DVD and DVD to TV. A set of red and white cables are for hearing (audio) ( red is general right and white is left) the holes that you plug them into should also be color coded the only real trick is that they are flowing in the correct direction. They should go out from the cable box in to the DVD and then a set should go out from the DVD and into the TV. The Yellow is for video on some units. Not all units need the yellow. Since it is cable there should be a cable connection from the wall to the cable and the only place that might need the yellow is from the DVD to the TV depending on your model of TV. Mine for example, uses an HDMI cable instead of the yellow plug ins. Hope this helps!!

Your red cable of your composite cords is probably not making a proper connection. Or one of the other two if you're using them. The t.v. menu may be set to black in white and the batteries may be dead in the remote. Try the remote up close with fresh batteries.
as far as hooking up your blu ray player to the sc-pt660, the only real way to utilize the surround sound (with true surround sound) is through the optical audio out. You need to connect your blu ray player through hdmi to your tv and then connect your blu ray player to your surround sound using the optical audio out/in. I, personally have the sc-pt660 hooked up through component cables so I don't waste an HDMI input on my TV. Except for cd's, there is no reason for you to use the actual dvd player part of the surround sound considering you have a blu ray player. In conclusion, hooking your blu ray player and the sc-pt660 up to get better video simply isnt possible (your blu ray player alone gives the best possible resolution, 1080p). As far as audio goes, run an optical audio cable from your blu ray player to your sc-pt660 to get true surround sound.
