SOURCE: hooking up to digital cable box
There are 2 ways you can accomplish this.First is the least quality which is via coax.What you want to do is connect the cable service coming from the wall to the input on your cable box.Then the TV output on the cable box goes to the input on your surround sound then the coax goes from the surround sound to the coax input on the TV.The second is to Connect using the RCA AV1 input.what you want to do is look at the back of the digital cable box and locate the OUTPUTS for the RCA jacks(or AV output)connect RCA cables (yellow red white) to the 1st INPUT on your surround sound.depending on models you should have a couple of different INPUTS for a signal.Choose one and plug it in.After that take a second pair of RCA cables and connect them to video OUTPUT on the surround sound and connect them to your AV1 OUTPUT on your TV.With the original remote for your TV,NOT the cable universal one,Look for an INPUT button on the remote.Some are called input some are called SOURCE,TV/VIDEO basically it tells the TV what signal source to look at on the back of the TV.If you dont have the remote put the TV on channel 3 then press the channel down button and when the TV gets to channel 1 press it again and it should start cycling through the AV inputs,choose AV1.
Once you have done this you have correctly
hooked everything up,BUT Like I said depending on the model of surround sound you are going to have to CHOOSE or physically select or "tell" the surround sound receiver which input to RECEIVE the sound through.In general the INPUT on the back of the surround sound will be labeled with something like Video IN,VCR IN, DVD IN and so forth.Make sure the surround sound is selected to Receive the sound coming from the digital box.Sometimes there is a dial on the front of the surround sound that allows you to select which INPUT on on the back becomes active .make sure that what you have selected matches what you have your cable box is connected to.Hope this helps!

SOURCE: DirecTV RC64R RF Remote control
Actually, you can go into the system settings by choosing "Parental, Fav's & Setup" then choose "system setup" then choose "remote" the IR/RF setup. Change it to IR and follow the instructions. Once I did that my remote worked on my DirecTV DVD HR22-100

The Red, White & Yellow connectors are your composite inputs usually classed as AV3 or component. The AV1 input is a Scart connection, if you have a scart cable, connect this as your AV source & the TV will switch from AV to component.

Well, I took the DVR apart and found the power board completely intact, no bulging capacitors. However, the Mother Board had a 220uf/50volt cap that was bulging, so I replaced it. By the way, 'DigiKey' is the only place to go for electronic parts. They'll hook you up! The DVR still wouldn't respond to the remote. Darn it!
So I took both of my DVR's apart and swapped out the Front Board (the one with the Photoamplifier in it) and the DVR would now respond to the remote. OK, so now what do I do. I still have one DVR with a bad Front Board. I started to look on ebay for an old used R15 500 that I could swap parts from...remember, I own my eqipment and the goal is to preserve what I have recorded on the Hard Drive. R15's were going for around $50 -$80. Then I got to thinking. I still had an old non-DVR Direct TV Receiver in my closet I never planned to use again. My thought was: even though it wasen't the exact model receiver, it did use the same remote, so the frquency that the Photoamplifier worked at should be compatible.
So I took apart this receiver unsoldered the Photoaplifier. I then removed the Photoamplifier from my malfunctioning DVR and installed the part from my unused Receiver and it fixed it. So long story short(too late for that) the Photoamplifier was faulty. I tried doing some cross checking and a company in China called Raytron makes the part. The failed part did not have a part # and Raytron has several different Photoamplifiers that operate at different frequencies. This made it impossible to find the right part without schematics or knowing what the freqency is. So at least we now know what caused the non responce to the remote.
