I am trying to hook up a new Samsung UBD-KM85C DVD player to my old Pioneer Elite VSX-39TX A/V receiver. I am replacing my old Pioneer Elite DV-37 DVD player with the Samsung.

The Pioneer DVD player accepted three cables red, blue, green from the Pioneer receiver into its "Component Video Out" receptacles. It also accepted a coax cable from the Pioneer receiver into its "Digital Out Coax" receptacle.

I bought a Helios Mini CS-HDMAV converter box. I connect the RGB cable from the Pioneer receiver to one end of the CS-HDMAV converter and I connect the HDMI from the new Samsung DVD player to the other end of the CS-HDMAV converter.

I have a left-over coax cable coming out of the Pioneer receiver that does not fit into either the CS-HDMAV converter or the new Samsung DVD player.

I am just seeing fuzzy black and white content when I play a DVD. I don't think I am getting surround sound either -- I a system that supports surround 7.1.

I have a Pioneer Elite Pro-700HD rear projection TV.

What do I still need to do OR can this new Samsung DVD player even be connected to my VSX-39TX receiver?
 
Does that converter have 5 RCA outputs? When I search online I find it only has composite video plus analog audio output (3 RCA).
What you need is an HDMI to component video + digital audio converter. The only kind I could find online have analog audio output which will give you inferior surround sound.

The way around this is to use an HDMI audio extractor which will have digital audio out.

The HDMI output of that would then connect to the HDMI to component video converter.
Or get a disc player with HDMI and digital audio outputs.
