    I use an optical cable from the TV to my surround sound, so anything that's on the TV will play through the speakers if I wish

    Here's how I connect my home theater with the following:
    ATV2
    PS3
    WII
    Comcast
    HDTV
    ONKY TX SR806

    Coax into comcast and HDMI to ONKYO HDMI1
    ATV2 HDMI to ONKYO HDMI2
    PS3 HDMI to ONKYO HDMI3
    WII Comp to ONKYO Comp
    ONKYO HDMI OUT to HDTV HDMI IN

    With this setup I am able to manage everything through one HDMI output to the TV which has no speakers and I use the ONKYO in 5.1 SS.

    Audio out from the TV requires you to have too many HDMI outs on the TV and also does not allow you to sync your audio and video at the source.
