So as title states, I got a Roku 2 XS, and I also have a Sony HT - 550w Sound Bar system and a Sharp LCD. The Movies on my USB Drive are MKV and have Dolby and/DTS and the roku only passes that through

I know I can hook up the Roku to the Sony via HDMI but then how would I get video to the TV since I dont have a HDMI to the TV from the Sony? Or would I just buy another HDMI cable?

you need 2 HDMI cables since you only have 1 extra device......! HDMI gos from Roku to the Sony the other goes from the SOny to the Sharp TV.......and that should be that.....
