See if oyu can buy a HDMI selector box, does the sound system have a dvd player in it? IF so I would go with S-video instead of hdmi, save the HDMI for the blue ray player. What is the very first item you have listed up there? PAnasonic what? LEt me know, hope this helps.

Your TV does support Audio Return Channel (ARC). Try connecting your Bluray player to HDMI 2 and your sound bar to HDMI 1(ARC). You will need to make sure that VIERA link is turned on in the Setup menu of the TV.

Just bought a 50 panasonic viera, when we hook up ps3 on hdmi cable, we have sound but no picture.

Plasma TV normally do not have the resolution required for PS3 unless the plasma TV is fullHD( 1920x1080p) pixels.

HD Ready Plasma = 1024 x 768p
PS3 Outputs = (fullHD)1920x1080 or (HDReady) 1280 x 720p.

LCD TV accepts the resolution matches the resolution the PS3 is outputting.

Unable to get home theater sound on cable tv mode

I had this problem on my own tv and it nearly drove me mad, in tv menu under sound submenu their is a setting called spdif mode, there are choices in this mode that can be made, My current tv has Auto, off and pcm. some tv's have more choices. Try playing with these settings and its possible you can get it to work with cable, your cable signal probably uses a different sound format to the blueray/dvd player. note if this works the sound might not work when you go back to blueray/dvd player so note the setting before you change it in case you need to go back to it when you change over viewing choices. good luck.
