Your Yamaha has 2 optical audio inputs, So use optical output from your d.v.d. player and sat or cable box that should work, Also I have never heard this Yamaha speaker system so I cannot coment. I have a 7.1 Atlantic Technology 4200 system that took days to hook up lots of work but was well worth it, anyway please post back and let us know how it works out for you have a nice day stewart
