Hi just wondering been getting mixed inf, whats going to be better sound when using Onkyo receiver, HDMi or Optical cable.
Also should I use all HDMi on the receiver when playing games and movies or should I use the tv's HDMi port, any advise will be helpful.

If you want the HD soundtracks from BluRay then you have no choice but to use HDMI as optical/coax can't carry the higher bitrate, so you drop down to DVD sound quality (actually better than typical DVDs, as you get 'core DTS' @1.5mps from BluRays output via optical/coax).
