Well, what are your sources? PS3? Wii? Magnavox Oddyssey? Cable/Sat? DVD? CED? Beta?

Then configure your PS3 HDMI to the TV and digital toslink to the Sony.

The ps3 is fine that's not what I'm asking it runs to the tv through a hdmi cable , its the rest I'm unsure of what would be the best cable from the tv to the Sony str-k840p for audio as it doesn't have hdmi what's digital toslink ?

If you want 5.1 you need to run the audio straight off the PS3 to the Sony, period. If all you want is 2.0 PCM, run the digital toslink from the TV to the Sony. http://www.ebay.com/...=item27cdf0a6f2 If 3ft is too short... http://www.ebay.com/...=item3f1a5e9d3c If 6ft is too short... http://www.ebay.com/...=item3a4aebb60b if 9ft is too short... http://www.ebay.com/...=item53f08bea3c if12 ft is too short... http://www.ebay.com/...=item3f14c2a3c5 if 15ft is too short... http://www.ebay.com/...=item3a7bdba078 if you need 100ft... http://www.ebay.com/...=item43b111c687
