Sorry, but not making much sense of it. More details please. Why run sound to TV at all since you have your Onkyo?

The optical on the TV is an output. Run the optical from the 722 to the amp.

The reason you do this instead of connecting to the optical out of your TV is that most TVs only provide DD 5.1 audio output when using their built-in OTA tuner. If the audio is coming in over HDMI from your sat receiver, most TVs downmix multichannel audio down to stereo. It's still uncommon to get DD 5.1 from the TV when viewing an external source.
