Unless you want to watch tv without having the 606 on for better sound use option #1. You will also get HD audio formats that some think is superior to optical or coax sound formats available.
You can use the pass through setting on the HDMI option in the 606 and it simply passes the signal without upscaling it. TVs generally do a better job of upscaling to their native resolution than AVRs do.
