I'd use HDMI cables to connect the DVR and any future video sources (DVD players et all). Your TV doesn't have RCA outputs. It looks like it has a digital audio (optical?) output? Buy a converter box that takes that signal back to RCA outputs and run those to your surround receiver.

You do realize that HD TV is a scheme to get you to replace everything. Just got my first HDTV a few weeks ago and had to get a new DVD player with WIFI, upgrade to an HD DVR, buy a bunch of HDMI cables (a few bucks each online) and I also need to get an optical audio cable. Oh yeah, and $200 to IKEA for a table to hold all this gear, plus running 100 feet of RG6 cable thru the walls and basement ceiling. We were tripping over the cables for a week until I put them in the walls.
