Good Luck
I'm sorry, I don't quite understand. Shouldn't I be able to get the audio I want from the s350 to the Onkyo through the HDMI alone? The Onkyo should be able to decode the DTS-MA, right?

As for the cable box and Wii, I guess I could just connect them to the TV and use an optical cable for the audio. No big deal.

EDIT: I'm going to go ahead and order this tomorrow and keep my current Blu-ray player for now. I think I have it all figured out. Thanks for your reply.

I'll give feedback about the system when I have it all set up. This is kind of exciting. I've only been getting half the Blu-ray experience all this time, now's that's going to change hopefully.
