If you have new equipment you can use an HDMI cable, just look to see if you have an HDMI jack.

The receiver and dvd don't have HDMI jacks

Then your only choice is to use the RCA jacks.

You should really buy a new Blu-Ray player and a modern receiver. Then connect them simply with an HDMI cable (your TV has 3 inputs)

I took a look at the models. Here is my recommendation....

Get the component cables for the DVD->TV connection.
Get the Optical cable for the DVD->Home Theater connection.

another word of advice, if you can wait for the shipping, get your cables from some place like monoprice.com instead of best buy, where the majority of what they charge you is pure profit. In other words, buying cables at these big name stores is a good way to get ripped off unless you're in a real hurry.

I forgot to ask if my Verizon DVR HD box has any role in this and how can i get the home theater to work whenever the TV is on , after messing with it last night for a bit i got it to work but the DVD player is only playing in black and white . I also have a PS3 and really didn't want to use it for movies but if taking away my dvd player helps then i'm also up for suggestions , would using my PS3 as a primary movie player burn it out sooner ? Thanks for your input..

I wouldn't be so quick to interpret the OP's query (as to the home theater hookup), as one of having no other resource or forum in which to voice her question
but more so, a hope to solicit information among and from, fellow Long Islanders. After all, aren't WE, some of the nicest and friendliest people in the entire state?
