Hi,this is a stepwise description of how to connect your computer to your dvd(home theater system).

STEP 1 Determine the distance between your computer and your system. If your computer is within 12 feet of your home theater system , you can directly connect them.
STEP 2 Make sure there is a free set of inputs on the back of your system. This should be a label that says "Input" and two connectors (usually red and white). Alternateively, they could be labeled "Aux," or "DVD." This is the source that you will select on the front of your device when you wish to listen to sound from your computer.
STEP 3 Determine the length of cable you need. Measure the distance between the back of your computer to the back of your DVD. The cable generally comes in 3-, 6-, and 12-foot lengths.
STEP 4 Visit an electronics store to purchase a Y adapter cable of the proper length. At one end the cable will have a plug to go into the headphone jack of your computer. (The plug will look like the plug on the end of any pair of headphones.) At the other end, the cable will have two RCA-type plugs (red and white). These go into your system.
STEP 5 Plug the computer end of the cable into the headphone jack on your computer. There may be a few jacks; the headphone one is usually green. Connect the other end of the cable to the free set of inputs on the back of your system. Be sure to match red to red and white to white.
STEP 6 Turn on your system and set the volume pretty low so you don't accidentally make a real loud noise.
STEP 7 Select the input to which you connected the Y adapter. For example, if you connected to "Aux," press the "Aux" button on the front of your system.
STEP 8 Adjust the volume of your computer to around 80 percent. You should hear the sound of your computer playing through your system.

Thanks and take care

Not hooking up a computer, just dvd recorder, no other hook up ports on tv, just cable jack, dvr will not come in on any ststion

Does the DVD player have an RF out if it does then put antenna cable on RF in connection port on DVD recorder and purchase another antenna cable to go between DVD RF out to TV antenna in.
Then manually tune a TV channel to the channel frequency that the DVD outputs on.

What's the best way to hook up the Logitech Z-5450?

I would say directly from player to tv to cut out as much resistance in the line as possible routing it through anything is just more wires to worry about and quality will be same or un noticeable

Leave me feedback please

Need home theater hooked to TV with built in DVD

This is the easiest way 2 explain it. Hook up on the home theater should be labeled in and out. same as on the tv. The TV might no have that feature as the DVD is built in. You might just have an option for sound from the TV/DVD to the home theater. Again OUT from TV IN to receiver. Same with any other device set up.

I saw a device that hooks to the computer that allows you to input media from a player (VCR or DVD) to the computer but nothing that works the other way around. What is it you're trying to do?
