1. Disconnect the two hdmi cables from the tv.

2. Plug them into the inputs of your receiver.

3. Plug a third hdmi cable from the output of your receiver to one of the inputs on the tv.

4. Turn on the tv and receiver.

5. Select correct hdmi input on tv.

6. Select input on receiver.

^^^ don't forget to turn off the tv speakers so that the audio only comes from the AVR. Otherwise, you may get echoing and what appears to be out-of-sync audio. You only want to use your tv for video and the AVR for audio. Any audio passed to your tv via HDMI will come back as stereo unless you have one of the rare (probably) tv's that can take an HDMI audio source and play it back as DD5.1 (and then that has to to be played back thru an optical out to the AVR).
