HDMI DVD to TV.
Digital Coax out of DVD to receiver. (but does this carry more than 2 channel I do not know)
HDMI is all you need to TV, as it carries all the signals.
Coax out to Receiver carries sound channels. (I own a Denon 4806 and Denon 5910, they have a separate Denon link that I use for sound from DVD to Receiver (including all surround modes), with the HDMI direct from DVD to Plasma screen.
Also, with a Pioneer TV and receiver, you may have a propritary link from screen to receiver you can use to direct digital sound from TV HDMI (from DVD) around to TV to Receiver. Denon link is a two way proprietary connection, Pioneer may also have one.
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.
