I have an Onkyo809 and a 7.1 Infinity surround setup. For a Bluray player do I need a 7.1 output? I was under the impression that I just hook a good high speed HDMI cable from the BD player to the AVR with each speaker connecting to the receiver.

Thanks.

Yup, one HDMI cable is all you need.

Awesome. And the 809 to HDMI will pick up the DOlby and DTS HD 7.1 sound qualities right?

Don't know what you mean by "809 to HDMI".

You're transmitting the soundtrack from your BD player to your receiver via a HDMI cable.

Your receiver should be able to decode all soundtracks, from 1.0 channels to 7.1 channels.

Some blu-ray players have 7.1 analog outputs, but those are mainly for older receivers that predate HDMI. HDMI receivers will receive everything a blu-ray player sends them just fine.
