DStv manufactures personal video recorders (PVRs) with high-definition recording capability that can be hooked up to a Samsung home theatre system and HDTV. Two types of cables are required for this set-up. Use an optical audio cable to hook up the DStv to the Samsung for multichannel surround sound. A high-definition media interface (HDMI) cable is needed to hook up the DStv PVR to an HDTV for the best available high-definition picture.
