I'm not sure I understand your problem. The DVD player settings and connections should have nothing to do with watching TV through the TV speakers. Regardless of how things are hooked up, TV sound should always come from the TV speakers. The way you have your DVD player hooked up, you should only get DVD sound from the receiver speakers. You shouldn't have to change any settings anywhere, just use the TV speakers for TV and the 5.1 speakers for DVD's.
