Connect a DVD to A/V or TV

I'd like to know the difference of connecting a DVD directly to receiver or
TV.  Does the DVD have to connect to receiver first then connect to TV from
the receiver?  Can I connect the DVD video signal to TV and audio signal to
receiver?  The reason I ask the question is I have to buy 2 set of component
cable (over $100 for each) if I connect the DVD to receiver and receiver to
TV.  Or do you have other choice?  Thanks in advance.

Yes, you can.  In some ways that may even be preferable, depending on the
quality of the switcher in your receiver.

Why in heavens name should it cost 100.00 for component cables? How
far are you running them? Please don't fall for the MONSTER cable
hype.
Buy 75 ohm coaxial  cables, Period.
I can sell you the highest Broadcast Quality component cables
available, for less than you're talking about. Especially if your
talking about 6 foot cables.
