Your AV receiver has x4 HDMI in's and x1 HDMI out. Run all of your devices into the AV receiver, run a HDMI cable from the Out on the receiver to your TV's HDMI input. Use the AV receivers remote to switch between Input channels.
To have sound output from the TV, run either a SPDIF or Optical Fibre (TOSLINK) cable from the TV's Digital Audio out into the receivers Digital Audio In.

**Does the main coaxel cable go into the receiver, then set top box, then into TV or cable into the set top box, set top box to TV and receiver into TV also?? Sorry for the confusion. I'm not good at this stuff. Thanks for the help!

All the devices you've just listed are essentially a set top box; you could use any of them as your digital TV receiver.
If you want to have TV channels on all devices then you could run a passthru to each device, but it's not necessary. For simplicity; just use the TV's coax in and if you want the sound to come out of your Home Theater system then just run a digital audio cable (as mentioned above) like digital coax (SPDIF) or optic fibre. Does this make sense?
