You can also use a digital coax cable (color orange) to go into coax 1 for DVD coax 2 for cable box. Just make sure to set the coax in input settings. The coax cables are a little cheaper than the optical cables and work just as well.

If your Time Warner Cable box is old enough that it has a DVI output it may have HDCP (copy protection issues) with the receiver. If you are having to use a DVI to HDMI adapter to connect to your receiver (output from Cable Box to input on Receiver) then it's very likely your cable box may have may not output the signal because it detects the HDMI repeater in the receiver.
The two best options to correct this are:
1. Connect the DVI to HDMI cable directly to the input on the TV, you lose the convenience of the video switching in the TV, but it will solve the problem. Then connect the digital audio output from your cable box to the receiver, although you've probably already done this.
2. Contact your cable provider and check into the possibility of them swapping out your cable box for a newer model that would have an HDMI output. This would be the best option since the HDMI output on the cable box would give you both the Digital Audio and Video through a single HDMI cable.
Let me know how it works out for your, or if you have any questions.

I recently got the same receiver and had the same problem. Here's what I was told - and it worked for me:
Even though HDMI cables carry audio and video, for whatever reason this reciever won't accept audio through hdmi. Apparently only much more expensive recievers carry audio through hdmi. What you have to do is run optical audio cables from your xbox, cable box, dvd player or other video device to the optical inputs on the back of the reciver. Then you customize the scene buttons to match your video and audio inputs.
You can get these optical cables pretty cheap on line or even at target. Don't get ripped off by Best Buy for these cables. I love best buy, but they rip off on cables!
This receiver is great - once I got it all figured out and running right I've loved it! Hope everything works out for you!
