Connect your sources (player, cable box, dish receiver, etc.) to the HDMI or component-video inputs of the receiver only.
Connect an HDMI cable from the receiver HDMI output to the TV.
All audio will be processed by the receiver and go directly to the speakers from the receiver.
The TV will function as a Video Monitor only (no audio connections).
If you are using an app built-in to the TV (such as Netflix) as your "source" then you may need to run a digital audio cable to the receiver for that function.
Since your receiver has WIFI, it would be better if you could access Netflix or other services directly with the receiver from the internet and not use the built-in app of the TV. Then you would not need the digital audio cnnection.
