Problem With Onkyo Amp?

Bit of a newbie here so please be kind!

I have the following kit which I am sure I must be able to get to work together better:

TV - Samsung LE40A656
Amp - Onkyo TX-SR706
Sky + HD
Blu Ray - Pioneer BDP 320
Xbox 360

I have a two or three problems that I think must be solvable (?!)-

1 - The HDMI hand shake on the AMP between any of the above seems to take a while and the TV will revert to a "searching for signals", "check signal" or "no signal" message while I wait patiently. This is particularly annoying when going between the Sky + and, say, Xbox on the amp.

2 - When I switch off the Blu Ray the TV sometimes reverts to terrestrial rather than staying on HDMI (through the amp)

Also (and this could be really stupid!), should I connect the above in to the TV first and then through the HDMI out in to the amp...or....into the amp first and then one HDMI in to the TV (which is waht I have done). We use the amp for all sources as the sound on the TV is pants.

It's a sign of getting old when technology gets the better of you!!
