Your reciever can't mix any inputs together, only play 1 at a time, and your mixing desk won't accept a digital signal (the prefered choice from the WDTV or DVD) so your a bit limited.
Personally I'm against combining electrical signals with a splitter - it can possibly result in hardware damage (although maybe unlikely).
AFAIK the only way to get a analogue signal from the WDTV is to use the composite jacks (yellow, white, red). Connect the yellow (video) straight to the reciever and the audio (white, red) to the mixer (either tape in or to an XLR stereo in with an RCA to XLR adapter), mix with the mic in the mixer and then mixer to reciever (again prolly its main XLR out to RCA on the reciever with an adapter or the tape out if that supports the mixed output).
Unfortunately you'll lose some video quality using composite video as opposed to HDMI but I think that's unavoidable with your equipment (at least without "jerry rigging").
It should be a similar procedure for the DVD.
