I do this with my HT.
Go from the cable box directly to the TV with both video and audio.
Use the digital out and HDMI from the cable box to your pre-amp/processor, then to the TV's second inputs.
Some TV's will automatically sense the "master" source while others you will have to hit the tv/video or source button to switch. I actually have my master source as the analog to the tv to make it easier for the family to use.
