I have an Onkyo TX-SR605 Receiver with HDMI outputs and inputs. Cannot seem to get the Roku TCL TV to recognize Onkyo Receiver. No sound, no video. How should cables be setup correctly and how should programming for both be completed?
 
How you connect them depends on the sources you have.
To get sound from the Roku and TV tuner to the receiver you will need to connect an optical cable from the TV to the receiver. You may need to turn it on, turn the TV speakers off and change the audio type to bitstream. Check the TV manual. The receiver doesn't support ARC so this optical connection is needed.
You may also need to assign the optical connection (for example optical 1) to an input name in the receiver input set up menu. Check the receiver manual.
If you have any sources, such as a blueray player, that can do lossless audio like Dolby TrueHD these must be connected to the receiver HDMI inputs to get the better sound. The HDMI output of the receiver has to go to any input on the TV. If non of your sources do this then they can connect directly to the TV and the single optical cable is all you need.

The TX-SR605 doesn't look like 4K capable and if your TV is, problem.

If this indeed is your situation, RoKu TVs u should be able to configure input, change the HDMI port TX is connected to, to HDMI 1.4 see if that helps. If this doesn't work, ask Onkyo for a firmware fix.

So, I assume you are saying the HDMI inputs and output will not connect to the television and send out dolby sound along with video without an optical cable.
