I bought the Dav-x1 system off Ebay. It said it didn't come with cables, but I figured it would be like most systems and I could just use my own RCA cables or speaker wire. Well, it looks like I need a special cable. And if I did the research right, that cable is over $93 and I about dropped dead when I saw that. Is there a way I can make my own cable? I'm not too concerned about the quality of this player. It's sitting in my workout room and it's not for my main room. Is there schematics available so I know where the wires should connect so I can just use my own stuff?

Most likely some one hit the wrong button on the remote. Make sure you have the proper device selected and the tv is setup for the proper device input. It is hard to tell you what is exactly wrong due that I do not know the full extend of your system.
The sub was part of a Sony DAV-X1. This whole system is highly proprietary in its connections for a reason. For all anyone knows, the original amp's output was frequency-shaped to correct for speaker response issues, like Bose would do. Substituting a different amp may be electrically unwise and audibly unsatisfying. It is certain that the DAV base unit did all the electronic magic to create a surround effect from only 2 speakers and a sub.
Your best bet to put these speakers to use would be to examine the sub and speakers for two conductors each that would be for the amplifier's audio output. Measured across them wit han ohmmeter it would read somether around 6 ohms.
Then somehow craft a physical connector to carry an amp's speaker output to it and carefully test it with very low volume.
It won't work as the DAv can only output to HDMI by bringing singal into the HDMI input.
why wouldn't you send it directly to the TV and Audio to the DAV? I sounds like you don't have an HD box anyway (otherwise why would you use an analogue S-video cable vs component or HDMI). Unless there is a distance issue then go to the TV.
