    I had the same issue when I hooked up my Pioneer VSX-821 to my Panasonic plasma.
    1st make sure your TV supports the HDMI Auto Return Channel Function (ARC). If it does not you will have to run a RCA audio cable for sound. But if it does support (ARC) you should check the HDMI set up configuration on you receiver. It needs to be set to ON. if you have ARC with HDMI cable. And set to OFF if your TV does not support ARC and also you might have to use a fiber optic cable for sound..
    Also in your receiver settings check the input assign menu to make sure you have assigned the correct the correct mode for each component...
    Hope I was some sort of help... Let us know what you come up with.
