Doesn't the DVD player send audio through HDMI?
Anyway, sounds like an issue with setup in the player. That assumes you have HDMI in and out connected correctly and are selecting the right input for the player. The 661 prioritizes audio from HDMI, then optical/coax, then analog, if all types are connected to the same input. So if all are connected to the "DVD" input and HDMI audio is present, it will use HDMI for audio.
Your player may have a setting for outputting video through HDMI. Make sure it is set correctly for your TV or you will get a black screen. For example if the player is set to 1080p but the TV only accepts 1080i, you get black screen. Likewise, some TVs will not accept 480i over HDMI, 480p or 720/1080 only.
