I have a surround sound setup similar to THIS. How do you have it setup? I need to get mine setup, integrating the cable through the XBOne but don't want input/output lag. I am thinking about doing it this way:
---cable in--->cable box---via HDMI--->XBOne---via HDMI--->Home theater--->TV

Does this work ok, or does it need to be:
---cable in--->cable box---via HDMI--->Home Theater---via HDMI--->XBOne--->TV
This setup though, would have XBOne sound going back to the Home Theater via TOSLink (optical cable)

There are a couple tutorials on YouTube but I wanted some real life suggestions and tips. Thanks.

Mine is cable - HDMI - Xbox One - HDMI - receiver - HDMI - TV

I use the Xbox media controller and it's neat using it or voice and have the whole lot shut down (Not the cable as I may want to record when the rest is off).

I also have a PC going into another HDMI port on the receiver.

All works fine.

If you can run HDMI through each step.... Cable > Xbox One > Receiver > TV all connected via HDMI, then you don't need a optical cable any where, Unless your audio setup does not support HDMI, then I would pull a optical cable out of the Xbox one (last part of the chain).

I am a home theater specialist, for a few years I was doing custom home theaters (projector, reference gear, etc) and I have done theaters well over $150K....Cool stuff :)
