Hey I just bought the VSX-1016TXV which is the exact same as the VSX-1015 just with HDMI. I went to hook up all my gear, I'm running bose acustimass 16 speakers through it a ps2 and a cable box with an HD signal. I thought if I just plug in the cable box with an HDMI connection to the reciever adn then run an HDMI to my tv I could get sound but I Couldn't, so I had to run the white and red connections from the cable box to the reciever. SHould I be able to just get an audio signal from the cable box to the reciever with an HDMI cable? Then I went to hook up my ps2 into one of the commponent connections on the back for a dvd player/dvr etc. I can get sound but no video. Do I need to run a video cable from the reciever to the TV? Can't all of these connections work through the HDMI alone for video? Thanks for any help!
