I always have this question as I am purchasing a new samsung RPTV to use with my existing AV receiver and speakers. I want to feed the TV digital video signals via DVI, and that means I can not pass the signal through the av receiver first since I have not heard any av receiver intergrated with a HDTV tuner (receiver). No I am not using the component inputs/outputs.


So, am I supposed to pass only the audio signal to the Audio Receiver and speakers, and pass the video (via DVI) to the TV seperately? What are the implications of doing so?


The same issue troubled me when I tried to connect my PC to the same system. I will have to pass VGA signal directly to the TV and pass audio signal (digital) to the receiver/speakers.


So do you guys experience the same issues when intergrating your "old" system with a new digital TV? Let me know. Thanks.

You are worrying for no reason. Many consumer A/V receivers have very poor video switching built into them so there may be an advantage in bypassing the receiver. The problem will be the number of inputs on the TV and coming up with a simple way of controlling the system. But if you work out the remote control issues and the Samsung has enough video inputs there is nothing wrong with connecting video directly to the display device and audio to the surround processor.
