Connecting Live TV to projector and surround sound system

ceh

What I've got:

-SONY Model No. STR-K650P

-SONY Model No. SLV-D300P

-4 SONY Model No. SS-MSP75

-SONY Model No. SS-CNP75

-2 cables with SMA connectors

-Abundant HDMI cables

-Rocketfish Model No. 15C10A003781A

-Optoma Model No. Q8ZE516AAAAAC0445

-VGA/SVideo-->HDMI Converter

 

What needs to happen:

1. I want to be able to play video (live TV) via the projector and the sound through the surround sound system.

2. I want to be able to switch between inputs without an ungodly amount of work. (Because the projector has two inputs, I was thinking that one would be dedicated to TV and the others would be connected to the Rocketfish and essentially be modular (the second part is not a problem)).

3. (Optional) I would like all sound to come through the surround sound speakers.

 

The Problems: 

1. I don't know how to connect the live TV (coaxial) to the projector

2. The surround sound is not working properly/I don't know how to get sound to it. When listening to the FM tuner on the device, only the SS-CNP75 works--but mostly static comes through.

3. I'm not a tech expert. I am doing my best to explain the situation as well as I can.

 

Other Comments:

1. If you need/want specific pictures posted to help understand the problem, reply to this post about what you need to see and I'll do my best to get all of them and label them.

2. I have a little budget for this project, so If you recommend certain equipment I'll certainly look into it.

 

Thanks:

Thank you so much if you provide some help! I really appreciate it.

There's this thing called an AV receiver which is specifically designed to do literally all of that.

Ok, I have one of those. The SONY Model No. STR-K650P. What I don't know to do is set it up to do all that. Any ideas?

Yeah sorry dude but I'm not gonna read the 300 page manual to you, that's something you have to do on your own.

 

If the receiver doesn't have coax input you need to use a tv tuner to take the coax and turn it into an HDMI signal which you can then pug into an AV receiver.

If you're getting static with radio then you probably didn't attach the antennas.

All of this stuff is in the manual of whatever AV receiver you're using.

You were right about this, I took off the FM antenna.
