Default SD receiver hookup to HD TV

I need some input. Our boy decided mom & dad needed a LG 32LC7D tv for Christmas. When I hooked up the standard definition satellite receiver coax labled "out to tv" into the coax input on the tv, labled "air/cable", I drew one heck of a ball of fire. Decided to cease and wait for a hd satellite receiver. I turned the power surge protector off, installed the hdmi cable, then when I attempted to hook satellite coax into hd receiver I again drew a ball of fire. Ended up back on our old tv through composite outputs of the hd receiver. Could someone explain this to me ??? I know I've shorted something and will be taking the HDtv to a shop.

Thanks for any info

You shouldn't have cause any shorting by connecting those cables. Either the satellite receiver or the TV has a problem.

Thanks a lot. I guess with two receivers reacting that way it narrows it to the tv.
