If you don't have an HDMI receiver, than you are fine connecting your components to any HDMI input. If you do have one, than connect all your components to receiver , than HDMI to HDMI2 arc on tv and if you have an older receiver with no HDMI than connect everything to tv than connect an optical cable to receiver to get sound.
