Please guide me on how to connect the card, to the htpc and the 722k reciever.
I use the Colossus with my Directv HR24-500. I can use the output from the HDMI connection or the component connection on the DVR into the Colossus for video. The HR24 also has an optical output for digital sound. I cannot remember as I write this if it has a coaxial output. Directv does not copy protect its non- pay per view programs, so the HR 24 can be streamed to the Colossus, and the output recorded to the hard drive with the Showbiz program. I don't know about Dish's policies in that regard.
I run the HDMI output of the Colossus to my Onkyo receiver, and the receiver to my tv. The component output can also be used for the same purpose, using the optical or the stereo RCA output from the Colossus to send audio to your receiver. I assume you will be using your receiver to switch between the audio and video sources which are fed to your TV.
Hope that helps.
