How do I hook up PVR to get surround sound?
I'm new to this forum and new to home theatre systems so hopefully this question isn't too basic, but I'm a little baffled as to how to set up my PVR through my receiver to get surround sound. My blu-ray is working fine with surround sound. I have HDMI cables running to my receiver and the receiver and TV connected as well, but my PVR was just set up by the company I receive my cable and internet from. When they set it up they bypassed the receiver completely and just hooked up the HDMI directly into the TV. I want to use my surround sound so I'm hoping this is just an easy change (well, not so for me obviously). I unplugged the HDMI connection from the TV and plugged it into the "DVR" HDMI plug on the back of my receiver. When I turn everything on and select DVR on my receiver remote, I do not even get an input that lets me select the TV/PVR.
Do I need an additional HDMI cable from the PVR to the TV? The coaxial cable (for TV) that comes from the wall is connected to the back of the PVR, should it connect to the receiver instead? Help, like I said I'm a newbie to this, but thought this should be an easy fix.
