Hey guys!!


I hope I am posting this in the right section...


I have just purchased a samsung plasma series 5, the 530 to be specific. With It, I also purchased a Samsung HT-AS720.


I havge 2 HDMI Cables and a sound cable as well. I just got it installed today and so the 2 hdmi cables are fished through my wall and hooked up to the tv.


I have no clue how to hook things up for optimal viewing and have no brothers to help!


I have a standard DVD Player that I have used component cables to hook up to the tv. My question is this:


How should I hook up the wii? Is there any way i can hook the audio and video cables to the receiver itself as opposed to tv?


What is the optimum settings for the sound system? Tv?


Any tips on how to make this set up all easy and simplified...


Also, I still see bars on the tv when I wat a widescreen dvd..is this normal?


Sorry if i sound like a total idiot but I really need help

That's normal. A 16:9 TV has an aspect ratio of about 1.78:1, while most movies are 1.85:1 or wider. So you'll still see black bars at the top and bottom.
