That's the only thing I can think of based on the pictures shown here.
Yep, that would be the case. Your components(satellite/cable, xbox/ps3, roku, whatever...) would all plug into your tv. You would run an optical wire from the tv into the blu-ray (its both the disk player and receiver). Whatever active input the tv is showing, would push the audio to the blu-ray which would come out the speakers. The single HDMI is for the blu-ray out to the tv.
I had a similar setup in the past and it worked well. For the money this is a good middle point between tv speakers only, and a full receiver/stand alone speakers setup....especially if you don't currently have a blu-ray player.
