Question about Denon AVR-1508 Receiver
Let's treat this as TWO functions - audio and video.
Your best video would be HDMI output (audio & video) from the cable box and EACH other video source (BD/DVD) directly to your TV and receiver. But, I'd still WATCH the video from the direct TV connection. The fewer intervening cables and electronics, the better.
Your best audio performance will come directly from each multichannel source via a digital (HDMI, coaxial or optical) cable to the receiver. I would LISTEN to audio through the receiver for best quality.
See a trend here? TV's best at video; receiver is the master of audio.
And neither one adds much by handling the other. Usually the opposite.
You mention coax. Do you mean coaxial digital audio????? As coax is also shorthand for the thick black cable bringing video to most cable boxes, connecting antennae to TV's and such.
You don't actually define what the problem is. Only YOU can be the judge of what 'better' is.
There are a multitude of (mis)settings you should master before declaring a hardware problem. I'd dive into the manual.
