Hi there first post here.

I am assuming from reading the posts below that "Help me, I know nothing" posts are welcome. So thanks for whatever anyone can offer in terms of advice.

Just bought a Vizio HDTV, connected to a DirecTV DVR receiver. I am thinking audio and am totally freakin' confused. I have an old Sony Receiver and assume this is obsolete in terms of connecting to the new equipment. I am looking for a relatively low cost option for getting some surround or virtual surround sound. The TV has a Digital Audio Out (Optical) port if that means anything. Do I need to buy a receiver or just speakers? Or does it all connect to the DirectTV receiver? Any HTIB options you would recommend? I would like to avoid one that has a DVD player as I am thinking of waiting the whole HDDVD/Blueray thing out...

Thanks in advance for tolerating my ignorance...
