The only way to get 7.1 is with a HDMI cable. Onkyo's web site says that unit has HDMI pass through. So it should work with a HDMI from the blueray to the reciever and they get the video out to the TV with another HDMI.

I just hooked up the exact system you're describing using a S550 on an older receiver without HDMI inputs. Works great.
Get cables from "monoprice" (online store) high quality cables and very cheap prices. (I would've expected to pay much more than I did for 8 of these cables). Search on some home theater forums and you can get some other recommendations for the company as well.
