I recently purchased a 46" 3d TV with a 3d Blu-ray player. I had been wanting to upgrade my TV for a few months, and I found a great deal off a brand new Sony (over 60% off). I would like to setup my entire system to have surround sound and good picture. Below, I've listed my toys with links to the product if possible. (I'm not going to list all of the composite/component/old audio/video connections) Can anyone help in giving me advice in how to connect all of my devices correctly?

Sony 46" LED HX820 Internet TV
Inputs/Outputs: 1 Digital Audio Output, 4 HDMI Connections

Cable Box
Inputs/Outputs: 1 Optical Audio Output, 2 HDMI Connections

Sony Home Theater System (Contains internal DVD Player)
Sony DAV-DZ170
Inputs/Outputs: 1 Optical Audio Input, 1 Coaxial Input, 1 HDMI Output

3D Blu-ray Dis Player

Sony BDP-S580
Inputs/Outputs: 1 Digital Audio Output, 1 HDMI Output

That should cover it. Now, how do I get all of my devices to play through the sony home theater surround sound?

Appreciate the help!

Just follow the instructions for each component. If a source has HDMI out, then connect it to the HDMI in on the receiver.
You only have two sources, BD and cable box. If needed, also connect the digital audio either coax or optical.
Using HDMI, means you only have one wire going to the TV.
