Run HDMI directly from cable box to TV and optical audio from cable box to receiver is only way I know.

Connect the cable hdmi to input 4 labeled video. Connect the cd player to digital or analog (red/white) to input labeled video. Now get both sourses playing. Hit the receiver button on remote, then press signal sel button (#4). From there select the active audio to play with that video. Page 38 in manual.
