I am thinking of using the current DVD player port since I wouldn't have the dvd player powered on when I use the roku. My HD monitor is a Panasonic plasma but it doesnt have any speakers attached as all sound is managed by the a/v receiver. To complicate matters further, all equipment (receiver, dvd player, and hd satellite receiver) are in a separate room and I control everything through a Logitech Harmony RF remote. Any help/suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

I tried using the DVD inputs on the A/V with component cables and an optical audio cable unsuccessfully. I then used the DTV set of inputs and optical audio and it worked perfectly. Also using Harmony 880 remote and have a BD player on one of my HDMI inputs, Cable box on the other. The problem seemed to be not being able to run two different devices thru the 'DVD' source on the A/V box. Once I separated them into BD on the "DVD" and Roku on the "DTV" sources-all went perfectly.
