I currently have a Marantz SR5002 receiver (and associated 5.1 speakers). I have recently purchased the Panasonic TX-P50U30B tv and am minded to also get the Panasonic Blue Ray DMP-BDT230EB. My question is: how should I connect the system up to get the best tv picture and audio sound i.e. should I connect the Blueray to the receiver ? Or to the tv directly ?

Connect your Blue-ray to the AV with HDMI - I assume that you have already connected your AV to TV with HDMI ?
