SOURCE: Hi, my tv is connected
This advice may fly in the face of the manual but it will result in the best sound and vision your gear is capable of.
You need to understand the directions audio NEEDS to go in order to manage it.
The BEST solution for watching and listening is to have the BEST electronics and the BEST devices handling the BEST sources of audio and video, respectively.
The FM & BLU-Ray are INTERNAL to the DAV so no cabling is needed for them nor will it affect them.
UNLESS your TV has superior sound to your audio equipment (unlikely), your TV is probably not going to be the absolute best AUDIO SOURCE. Many TV's (monitors) don't even have speakers so why should they be in the audio loop other than for watching news or weather?
Your Cable Box, Sat Box, any other external A/V sources will probably have facilites for presenting audio and video to separate devices. HDMI will carry digital audio and video. If THAT is the best a source has to offer, run it to the TV first as no signal ever benefits from multiple connections or 'hops'. That same high-end device probably also has a separate digital audio output. Run THAT to your best audio electronics for the same reason as above and to give it first crack at decoding the multichannel information it needs. Repeat for all other sources if you have inputs to support them everywhere. Lacking multiple digital audio outputs, opt for analog stereo to the lowliest audio device (the TV) and send the best to the Sony. That way, if you just want the TV on for company or news you can leave the Sony turned off.
Helpful hint: Coaxial digital audio cables can be joined using an RCA cable splitter so they can share a given input or distribute a given output to multiple places. You just have to remember to have only the DESIRED units turned on when sharing or there will be digital confusion on the buss and it will result in silence or horrendous noise.

Using the optical cable for the sound, first you have to configure the PS3 sound settings to output via optical. Then, the receiver must be in the "SAT" input, by pressing the according button in the remote (or the receiver itself).
