Agreed - might be a good time to invest in a receiver, one that at least gives you the 5.1(7.1) analog audio inputs so you can take advantage of the lossless audio tracks on most BDs that the s550 will decode internally. For not a lot of money you could get a better A/V receiver that would accept the lossless bitstreams over HDMI and do the decoding as well. You'll have plenty of HDMI inputs for your other equipment and a lot of additional flexibility. Consider an Onkyo 606 (or whatever newer model is replacing it). Many in these forums are reporting the 606 widely available for $400 or less. You could keep the same speakers for now, but you will need a powered sub..."Everybody has an agenda. Except me!"

Thanks for all the replies and thanks for researching KAB! The combination of receivers does not seem to be the problem as I hooked up the blue ray by itself to the switch, nothing else connected, and still no sound from the surround system.
I can't afford to upgrade to a new A/V receiver at this time since I just got a new tv and I only have the blue ray player because they gave it to me at no extra cost with the tv.
The reason I got the "home theater in a box" system I did was because it has what they refer to as wireless rear speakers. Although it does require a seperate little speaker receiver at the back of the room and the rear speakers have wires going to them from that.

I forgot to mention in my previous post that I have ordered a different switch online but I am expecting the same results but hoping for the best. The product info does say it will work with satellite receivers and blue ray/HDDVD but nothing about whether they would work in combination.
If I could get a switch that will only work for the blue ray if it is hooked up by itself that would be acceptable to me although not the optimum solution. It would be much easier to connect or disconnect toslink cables at the switch rather than the back of my surround sound system.
