I think to simplify the connections and the wire jumble , HDMI should be used. HDMI cable can be attached from TS HD STB to AVR and then from AVR to TV ( obviously taking care of i/p and o/p ports). This should remove the need for optical / spdif.
One question - How are SD channels handled ? Do they require a separate 2 channel cable or are the signals carried over HDMI cable for these channels as well ?

I am not sure if HDMI can provide 5.1 Audio to Audio system. I am sure HDMI carries Stereo (2 channels Left/Right) Audio to TV for both SD and HD channels.

I think HDMI 1.3 can carry Dolby True HD
Yes it can, but the way the implementation is done by TS is the very problem. Tata Sky HD+ gives stereo out thru hdmi, you have to connect via digital out or optical out for dolby 5.1 and of course there is no 7.1

Dear Folks,
Sorry for pitching in late, You will get 5.1 surround sound from the STB through both spdif or Hdmi. The settings under sound (user settings)have to be changed. there are two options for both spdif - ie. optical or coaxial and hdmi. you could choose between pcm and dolby digital. there are no channels which broadcast with 7.1 sound. almost all are doby digital which is 5.1. A AVR is necessary to decode the sound as tvs come only with stereo. You can choose PCM output if you have 7.1 AVR system where in the avr will manipulate sound according to the settings in the avr.
i would like to add that at present i subscribe to both TATA and Sun. Though Sun network has very few HD channels their quality is fantastic. i have compared the video and sound for both Zee HD and Star. My friends the audio from Sun is superb and the video colors are vibrant and sharp.
Waiting to hear from you all.
