Hello, my name is Rusty. Connect your components to your TV using HDMI cables. Connect the digital audio output (orange) from your TV to the digital input on your receiver (also orange, on the bottom left of the back of the receiver).

In your TV menu, locate the audio section and turn the TV speakers off. Tune your receiver to the digital audio input, and you will have 5.1 surround.
