Samsung 46" LCD, Rogers HD PVR and Viewsat Extreme

What is the best way to hook these up? I have an HDMI cable going from the Rogers HD PVR to the TV right now. Can I connect the satellite receiver to the HD PVR or do I go directly from the satellite receiver to the TV?

You can't go through the PVR, you need to connect directly to the TV (unless you wish to use the composite connection on the front of the PVR - only for bypass, not recording - this is of course SD - you don't say which model Extreme you have). See the following on cables/connections:
