Connecting Panasonic Plasma, Sony DAVDX375 and Comcast HD Cable Box/DVR

I cannot figure out which cables to use/settings to set to connect these 3 items so that the TV sound plays throught the home theater speakers.  The speakers are hooked up to the receiver.  The Sony receiver has red/white jacks and HDMI jack, but does not seem to have the orange (digital?) jack and does not have an optical jack.  The Comcast DVR has all jacks (including optical) as does the TV.  Can you run me though the basic connection, which cable (including the Comcast cable TV cable) runs to which accessory?  Do I need to select certain setting on the TV/receiver/Comcast DVR to get the sound from the cable/TV to run through the surround sound speakers.
