I think youre confused here. The main unit is a receiver, so you can hook up your cable box to it and still get the picture to your TV, thats what its meant for. This is how you should have it hooked up...
1). HDMI from Cable box to SCBTT770 INPUT 1
2). SCBTT770 HDMI OUTPUT(theres only one OUTPUT port on the SCBTT770) to TV HDMI 1(ARC)(on back of TV, not side)
So a total of 2 HDMI cables are needed
As for the "wireless" speakers. They are, and they arent. You dont need to wire them to the main unit, just the wireless unit, which helps you from having to run wire all the way across the room from the back speakers to the main unit.
When you say only HDMI input 4 should be used with highspeed for 3D, thats confusing... you can use any port.. I think you might mean you need to use HDMI 1.4 Cables, which are the standard for 3D compatability.
Once you have it hooked up this way... Access the HOME screen on the System, Click on EXT IN in the upper left corner, and click on HDMI IN1(NOT ARC!!!!!).. and you should now be up and running... TV with full sound.
Try it, and let me know how it goes!
