The correct connection is to run an HDMI cable from the HDMI OUT jack on the Anthem receiver to the HDMI 1 input on the the TV / monitor. That should be the ONLY connection to the TV / monitor.
All of your signal sources, including the cable box, DVD player, etc. etc. must be hooked ONLY to the HDMI input jacks on the receiver.
Use only HDMI class 2 cables as specified in your receiver manual.
Do both your TV and receiver support the Audio Return Channel function?
If so, read the manuals to understand how that functions.
As your receiver manual points out, SOME cable boxes do not provide on-screen menus or full functionality when connected to the receiver via HDMI. If this is the case, connect your cable box to the receiver using a set of component-video cables in order to get full functionality, rather than HDMI.
