Greg,you are not an idiot,you are just not an expert,that's all.Since
you are not an expert but would like to have a quick way to do this,i
recommend you to connect your DVD player with the HDMI cable connect it
directly to the TV HDMI input.
Some of the DVD player required you to select HDMI source,but before we
jump to that conclusion,let just take it once step at a time.
Let me know if you HAVE to connect your DVD player through the
receiver,then i will have to show you 7-8 other steps with 2-3 extra
steps for your TV in order to make this happen.
Or you could hire me-:o)
