I understand that ideally, I should hook up an HMDI cable from the blu-ray to my tv, but my tv only has one HDMI outlet. Said outlet, is currently being used by another HDMI cable,which is hooked up to my cable receiver. The cable receiver also only has 1 HMDI outlet. So what can I do to hookup all 3 things?

The blu-ray player also has a digital out coaxial (PCM/DTS Dolley Digital). Does that help me at all? Please help.

you can get an hdmi switch I used one for cable box, Xbox 360 when my tv only had 1 hdmi it would automatically switch when i turned on the xbox. looked like this http://thecoolgadgets.com/hdmi-1-3-hd-switch-green-house-releases-new/

can get them on ebay for less than $10

I also used an optical switch to hook up cable box and xbox to the surround system since it only had one optical port and it would auto switch as well.
