Question about Onkyo HTR500 Receiver
Since the HTR500 does not have an HDMI connection, I currently have the Dish 622 receiver connected directly to my TV via HDMI and then using the RCA sound output from the TV to go to the RCA inputs on the Onkyo. The problem is this config does not give me the digital sound quality. The Dish 622 supports optical output as well, but I have not been able to get sound out from it when I tried using that while the HDMI is connected to the TV at the same time. Any ideas? Is there a better way to do this? I have the Dish VIP 622 DVR, the Onkyo HT-R500 receiver, and the Sony KDS-R50XBR1 TV.
Have a Vip-722 Dish HD receiver with a Sony receiver w/0 HDMI input and use the optical for audio for the 5.1. Using the HDMI and digital optical at the same time works fine for me.

I haven't researched to actual manuals for your equipment, but I'm guessing that the optical may be disabled when the HDMI is used. You could try using the component video outputs to the TV and then the optical to the Onkyo.
