How to hook up multiple devices through my home theatre receiver?

Hook

Miler4salem asks:

I have a few year old sony hdtv. I need to hook up an XBox 360, the HDTV cable box, a DVD player, and a home theatre receiver. The previous way we had it all hooked up was through the receiver but we had green on the screen so some guy from the cable company came and changed it. Now we cant watch DVDs or get the XBox to show up. How do I need to hook up everything?

Why was there green screen? Perhaps the receiver was defective. The cable guy should not have left your other sources unconnected without explaining what was wrong. If you can, plug all your sources into the receiver again, and use the same external input to your TV(that the cable guy used) from the receiver output. If you still get green screen, replace the receiver.

  1. Its hard to say without seeing the setup. My advice would be to read the receiver manual very carefully and it will show step by step instructions on how to hook everything to the receiver and TV. Good luck
