Do you have the TV's HDMI audio input set to "Digital?" If so, it will only accept digital input. Try using "Auto." If that doesn't work, try "Analog" as that's all you are using anyway. It's been over a year since I fooled with that on my 5080, but IIRC, Auto didn't work right for me for some forgotten reason. I changed it to Analog and all was well. (I have my satellite box set up as you describe, except I don't run its HDMI through my AVR. I use an S/PDIF connection to the AVR.)
You might want to check your cable box settings as well. There may be a setting there that needs changing.
All else failing, if you are using the HDMI control function, check those settings. They can cause some unexpected consequences, or so I've heard (I've never used it).
