My MBP can output audio and video so my question is what steps do i take to set this up properly?

I have a Onkyo TX-Sr606 reciever and everything (HDTV, PS3, cable box) is connected through it.

All MBP can output audio but yours can also do it through the mini displayport. Just get a MDP to HDMI adapter and an HDMI cable. I am assuming the Dennon can take the audio over the HDMI. If not then still use the HDMI to get the video but you will need to come off the audio out of the MBP to the Dennon.

Uhhh, I'm gonna guess you mean Onkyo?

If you don't, the Onkyo folks need to give the Denon folks a phone call re their naming conventions...

Plug dongle into MBP and connect the HDMI cable to the dongle and then the receiver. Power up both devices and your TV. Set the receiver for whatever HDMI port you're using. Then, go into the "Displays" control panel under "System Settings" on your MBP. You may need to click the "Detect Displays" button in the lower right hand corner. Assuming your TV is properly connected to the receiver, it should "just work". If it doesn't , remove the HDMI cable from the receiver and connect it directly to the TV.

I've found that Macs poll the display outputs on a regular basis and will reset themselves if they detect a change.

My older MacBook Pro will instantly fire up my sharp LCD, as soon as it's plugged in. (as long as the TV is set to the right input. I thing there is capability in HDMI to send status back to the "Output" device, such as my MacBook Resetting when changing inputs or being able to turn my blu-ray player on my selecting it's input on my TV)

Avoid zealots... they are generally humorless
