Default Setting up the 3808 with D*TV HR20 and PS3

I have a new Denon 3808 and am trying to figure out the best way to set it up. I have a HR20 and a PS3 that I am currently running into the 3808 via HDMI. Then I have the HDMI out going to my HDTV. I seem to have to select TV/cable to get it to pick up the sat receiver. I think this is because that the satellite input on the 3808 looks for a component connection and not an HDMI. I also noticed that the 3808 has to be on to get the Dtv signal to the hdtv...anyway to watch dtv with out turning the 3808 on?

Should I have my HR20 in native? Do I set up the 3808 to do pass through. Will the 3808 upscale any SD D*tv channels? Would I be better off running the HR20 and PS3 into my HDTV and then go optical audio intop the 3808...I am sooooo lost.

I would be eternally grateful for any pointers!

you don't want to go directly to your tv and then optical to your receiver. most tv's will downgrade the audio signal to pcm linear at best.

you probably have to set up the digital inputs on your receiver for hdmi on your satellite receiver. running the tv through there shouldn't upgrade the signal much, but it may cut down on digital noise, and you'll definitely have better sound. you can also run a set of component cables right to the tv if you want to watch the news quick without good sound.
