this means you likeley have your cable box connected correctly, if you have it connected to a standard definition input (AV in or coaxial) make sure the that the dvd player is not in progressive mode.

From Cable Box to Input on DVD Player, from DVD Player Out, to TV in, from TV Audio Out to Home Theater Audio In.
That should work.
Will have to have the VCR on to watch cable. Plus make sure that you use A/V cables as much as possible. Coax works ok, but not as good as R/W/Y.

You have some choices. I'm assuming you are using Input 1 and 2 for the component, composite, S-video connection options that are stacked: input 2 above input 1 and input 3 to the left of input 1.
1) You can always home theater system speakers in use for the DVD player and cable box. In that case, disconnect the audio cables from the TV for both devices and connect them to the audio inputs of the Home Theater system. Leave the video cable in place. (If you use component video and separate audio cables, this will be easier than if you use a composite video cable. You would probably need extra audio cables.) The TV speakers will not work in this configuration unless you use another input (for exampe: TV OTA or PC that isn't connected to the home theater system). .
2) You can leave the current connections alone and connect the TV's audio out to one of the Home Theater system's audio inputs. The audio out is towards the bottom of the back panel between the VGA PC video in and the PC audio in. Once connected, turn on the TV and turn off the TV speaker. Menu > Setup > TV Speakers (On/Off) (navigate with the up/down and left/right arrows as needed). If you want to control the sound of the Home Theater system (and it is compatible with your system) set the next line Audio Out to Vari. Otherwise leave it at Fixed (and control the volume with the Home Theater systems controls). Also turn on the Home Theater system and set it to the desired input.
In all cases, you need at least one RCA audio cable with two plugs (red/white). Maximum of three for the component video with video from the cable box and DVD player to TV and then out to the home theater center. See the TV manual for configuring a connection to an external amplifier.
If you have no sound and the TV speakers are off, try new cables, make sure you are set to the correct input, and make sure that the connections are secured correctly. (Make sure you didn't accidently connect to a Audio In on the TV for example since the audio in for the PC is on the far side of the audio out relative to the VGA port.) Make sure the Mute is not enabled on any device. Make sure everything has power and that no headphones are connected to anything. If you have noise when the TV is on, then try moving the home theater system farther from the TV and/or using shielded cables. Check if the unit can receive an AM or FM signal (the tuner is built in but you will need an antenna) or the audio when directly connected to a device.
If it doesn't work with any connection, it probably needs service. The unit came with a one-year warranty when new, max of 90 days refurbished. Check your documentation.
I hope this helps.
