HELP! Hooking up my 360 to Combo DVD-Reciever, Digital Cable Box, LCD TV



Hi all, I recently purchased a 360 premium as well as a Samsung LN-R268W 26" LCD TV. I am now in the market for a Home theatre in a box to complete the experience. My problem is I am not experienced with a/v things at all and am unsure if the model that I would like to buy (Samsung HT-P50 1000W HTIB) will have enough connections to accomodate my 360, my TV, and my Scientific Atlanta Digital Cable Box.
The Samsung LCD has HDMI and so does the HTIB I was going to buy. Therefore I was going to hook up the TV and DVD/Reciever via HDMI, leaving the component hookups on the LCD for the Xbox 360. Now I am left with connecting the digital cable box. I would like surround sound for everything but sinec DVD/Reciever only has 1 optical output, is this still possible? Someone please help, my head is spinning.
