you can use any receiver. Unless a manufacturer creates the two items (which they would come together in a package) you can interchange just about (not all) TV's and Receivers. You shouldnt have a problem with a normal receiver as long as it has the same outputs as your TV has inputs (HDMI, RGB, S-Video, etc).

If your tv is missing a box that houses all your inputs and connects to the set using an umbilical DVI-D cable, it is probably useless without the media recevier. Can you turn the set on at all?

if possible, could you post a picture of what the 2 cable hookups in the back look like? Or, if you know, just tell us what type of connections they are, HDMI, Cable, RGB, etc.
