ok how do i get sound cable tv sound from my receiver? have my dvd >> receiver , receiver <<>> hdtv hdmi in and out. so how do i receive sound on regular tv. its 7.1 set up as 6.1 as of now but my understanding is you can not use 7.1 for cable...so 5.1 is fine if possible or next best way as long as i have a few speakers while watchin tv if i'd like....thanks

sorry if another similiar question has already been asked and answer but theres a ton of posts..

connect your cable box's audio out to the amp,would be how to get cable audio over the surround speakers.
if you want the tv speakers connected to the amp, then connect the tv's audio out, to the onkyo.
your tv's hdmi is "in" only,so you wont get audio from it.

well then, you would have to connect your tv's audio outs(red/white phonos) or optical out, to your amps AUX (possibly) input, and select the audio input from the amp.
