Hi sam welcome to the forum.

The Onkyo 608 has one HDMI out with ARC ( Audio Return Channel ), just plug all your HDMI enabled devices into the 608 & just one HDMI into the tv ( be aware that some TV's have only one of their HDMI's ARC enabled, so it's worth checking with the manual ) from the HDMI out on the Onkyo.

 The HDMI lead to the tv has to be at least v1.3 High speed generally to be 3D with ARC, you dont need to spend a fortune to get reasonable quality, something like this should cover it Clicky. The Chord HDMI that you have, should work fine.

RE: AV receivers

ARC is in the HDMI 1.4 specification, not 1.3. Also, "All HDMI cables will support Audio Return Channel when connected to ARC-enabled devices"
