Black would be minus - and red would be plus + but this will only work if your receiver actullay has a + and - binding post specifically for the sub woofer. Sometimes you will have wiring binding posts and other times you will have a rca phon plug and maybe your sub has that as well
your reciever does not have hdmi, so the audio is not going to be true DD+ or DTS for broadcast tv.
if your dvd/blue ray player has digital optical spdif, this can be used to transfer the encoded DD+/DTS digital audio.
the besat way to run your tv audio through the reciever is to hook up the dvd/blue ray player up with (perferrably) digital optical spdif, composite spdif or (least favorably) through the stereo stereo analog inputs on the reciever for "dvd" audio in and hook the video from the dvd/blue ray up to the corresponding "dvd" video component input on the reciever.
this way is only going to get your dvd/blue ray sound, next you need to hook up your cable box to the reciever so that you can get broadcast tv sound. hook up the cable box audio to the "tv" stereo analog audio ins, and hook the video to the corresponding "tv" video component inputs.
the component video inputs have separate jacks for red, green and blue ( labeled "Y" "Pb" and "Pr") and are capable of carrying a 1080p full hd signal. use the component video outputs on the reciever to output the video signal to a component video input on the tv, using the receiver's input selector to change the video source.
What isn't it doing - audio, video, both? What model is the TV. How are you trying to do it. Do you have the manual? The simplest hookup is to just have the a single RCA cable from "TO TV Monitor" to a Video In on the TV. Modifications may be required depending on what else you have for video sources and how they're attached.
THERE SHOULD BE AN RCA PLUG SAYING SUB OUT IN THE BACK OF THE RECIVER AMD SUB IN ON THE BACK OF THE SUB. JUST TAKE AN RCA PLUG AND CONNECT THEM.IF THE SUB HAS TWO JACKS JUST PICK ONE BOTH DONT HAVE TO BR FILLRD
