I just bought the new 60' sony LCD TV KDF-60XS955 and it has 2 HDMI input.
I am planning to get a Denon DVD that has HDMI output, it might have DVI also. I am very concern about the picture quality. Should I get monster cable for DVI (from dvd) to HDMI (tv) ? or I should just go for HDMI to HDMI to get the best picture quality?

My second question is currently I am using DirectV, and the box doesn't have DVI and HDMI, I have talked to the tech person there, they have a box that has DVI output, is that ok? Will monster cable for DVI from the receiver to HDMI will get nice picture?

The only difference between DVI and HDMI is that HDMI also carries digital audio with it (Dolby Digital, DTS.) There is no picture quality enhacement from going with one over the other. But don't forget to connect a digital audio cable (coaxial or optical) from the back of your SONY XS955 to your surround sound receiver (which the tv should have.)

I connected my HDTV to Sony FRV-8 Dream Home theatre, but I don't get any sound when I want to watch TV channels thru home stereo system. I turned TV speakers off as suggested in the mannual and use Home theatre speaker set up for sound. No luck, however, when switched to DVD player (part of this Home theatre system), my home theatre speakers work fine. What is that I am doing wrong?
Help, please.

I'm not too sure about your model TV, but my Sony, audio setup window gives you the option of turning the internal speaker on or off, and also set the volume levels at variable or fixed. When I use my home theater system I have it set to "fixed" and the internal speaker off.
