Re: Setting up the 3808 with D*TV HR20 and PS3
you don't want to go directly to your tv and then optical to your receiver. most tv's will downgrade the audio signal to pcm linear at best.
you probably have to set up the digital inputs on your receiver for hdmi on your satellite receiver. running the tv through there shouldn't upgrade the signal much, but it may cut down on digital noise, and you'll definitely have better sound. you can also run a set of component cables right to the tv if you want to watch the news quick without good sound.
