I need advise on how to setup my CABLE BOX-HOME THEATER-PS3

Hi guys, I am not an exxpert so i wanted to ask what would be the best way to setup my stuff. I am Getting a 46 inch with at least 3 hdmi inputs but not sure which tv yet. I want to try to stay at the best resolution posible (1080p).

I have a jvc dd 3 home theater. It has 1 hdmi input.
I have a ps3 which i want to use an hdmi for
I have a HD Cable box which has 1 hdmi output.

My question is, will i be able to use everything with my home theater and maintain the 1080p? any suggestions/help will be aprecieated. thanks

Which JVC model is it exactly?

I'd say you are fine since the TV can accept up to three HDMI connections. Some folks end up connecting directly to the HDTV if they have any issues with how the receiver handles the switching, etc.

If you are wondering about what resolutions are supported, I'd want to take a look at the user manual for that JVC (model #= ?).

It looks like in any case you'll be connecting most of your components directly to the HDTV since it only has a single digital optical input, and doesn't support upconversion to 1080p according to gizmodo & the user manual I saw. I don't see any mention of pass through either in this case. Photo for reference-
