Not quite sure what you're asking - are you wanting to send 5.1 from your TV back to the receiver in order to use the 5.1 surround speakers? If so, then AFAIK you would need HDMI 1.4 compatible equipment & cable in order to do so just using the HDMI cable.

Otherwise, just do like I do with my 1.3 cable, Sony LCD TV and Onkyo AV receiver - use a separate cable (TOSLink fiberoptic in my case) to connect the digital audio output from the TV back to the digital audio input on the receiver.
