FEED ME ALL YOUR ISSUES I know pretty much everything about dish being an employee so I can help out anything...
Depending on the type of cables u use to connect reciever to surround sound. The older boxes have component or coaxial connection just connect it according to the cable hook up and make sure u r on correct input neeeded to view pic if u have coax. Channel 3 or 4 component will be input. U might want to call and upgrade your reciever to high definition since u have new he Tv. That will be a better hookup done by technician
Relax, I'm here to help!
when possible i always suggest running audio out from the tv to the stereo receiver so that no matter what you are watching you get audio. if you have optical audio do that as it is a better quality. if you have rca (red/white/yellow) just run the red white to the receiver. if you don't have audio out on the tv, run your rca output from the dish receiver to the input on the stereo receiver. be sure you are on the proper input and voila, you're golden.
