You said you tried hooking the HDMI up directly from the TV to each component, and that worked. How is it usually hooked up - through some kind of switch? I'm not completely understanding your setup here.
All of them will work just fine audio-wise with the Onkyo and on some level just about any TV made in the last 20 years if it has s-video, composite video, component video or HDMI video inputs (google them).
Keep in mind that no video must necessarily pass from the the BluRay to the receiver but it MUST find its way to the TV. It's best to have any audio or video signal go directly to the best electronics that handles it. That's one reason they can be routed separately.
Hi, as the Onkyo receiver you have does not have HDMI switching, the only thing it will do for you with a Blu-Ray player is process the audio signals. The video from the BR player will have to go directly to an HDMI input of your hi def TV. In this case, either Sony or Panasonic BR player will be equal. Assuming you keep the Onkyo unit you have, you would want to use the optical digital output from the BR player as the audio source into one of the optical, digital audio inputs on the Onkyo. In an ideal world, your receiver would some that does do HDMI switching. This way, all the audio and video signals from any audio or video source would be automatically switched and channeled through 1 simple HDMI cable into your hi def TV. This will make you life simpler as ther would be no need to select an appropriate input on the TV, as well as one on the receiver. That said, buying a new receiver in addition to a BR player is more costly. Good luck. Let us know how it goes.
I don't have a solution to your problem -- but I do have the receiver and want to hook up my Plasma TV through the ONKYO TX-DS474 receiver. Its a great receiver but am not sure it will "do the job" being so old in the tooth.
